Started my day with my power breakfast…yum. I used to gag at the thought of a fried egg…and then, well, I guess I grew up. 🙂
Enjoyed these too as I ate breakfast courtesy of Abby…I caught them longing to be outside 🙂
Worked all the day long filling orders…a labor of love :) These came out just gorgeous and are on their way to their new homes!
Gosh I'm tired. Been in a better routine lately and most nights I'm in bed by 9. I just can't keep my eyes open! But my routine is going great…getting up earlier (between 5:30 and 6:00) and having coffee with Scott. It's seldom that we get a quiet moment around here so it's nice to start the day together…even if we're just slurping coffee in the same room watching the news! LOL! I get the kids off to school and try to do a bit of housework…start laundry, fight the fires with the biggest flames (translation: clean the dirtiest spots first) or if I'm busy with orders, assignments projects or other stuff I get right to work. Cash always by my side, of course…though he loves to watch his "shows" too if I let him! Lately he's discovered pbskids.org –let's just say I don't get much done when he plays that :) We're getting to our lunch a bit earlier and that means Cash is down for a nap by 12:30 or so. Which leads me up to work until time to pick up the girls from school and start afternoon chores, dinner, and into the evening stuff. My workday is done (most days) about 4:00. This week has been extra busy, so here I am up at 10:30– winding down I guess from a caffeine induced frenzy from earlier. :) I am a VERY NON-routined person…so I'm pretty impressed with myself! (I know some of you that know me well would be impressed too!)
I'm pretty excited about some upcoming things. When things slow down a bit with shoppe orders I'll be able to work on my CUT&CREATE (printable design) stuff a little more. The Pretty Packages kit was sort of my first CUT&CREATE design…and hopefully I can get all the ones out of my head, into the computer and ready for you all to CuT aNd CReAte with! I have a few other projects percolatin' too…so many projects…so little time :)!
I recently had the opportunity to join a great blog as a contributor…it's the EXECUTIVE HOMEMAKER blog which is a "sister" to Tip Junkie…one of my absolute favorites! I was thrilled with the opportunity and will be sharing some crafty freebies at EH (here too of course).
Next week I'm going to California to visit some friends and collaborate on a project that we're dreaming up together. It could be something wonderful. Who knows? I'm such an optimist…which sometimes, is a not-so-good thing. I'm just letting the Lord lead the way…if it's something wonderful…WONDERFUL! For now…I'm just dreaming, we're scheming and it's all very exciting. So we'll see.
Welp…I'm too tired to blab anymore. I'll leave you with this cute picture of Mr. 40 and our sweet three!
