Update Successful

What? I listed a new item in my Etsy shop tonight? Get out!

It has taken me just about FOREVER to get some pictures I liked of some of my new items. By forever I mean at least 3 weeks. They are not exactly my favorite pics, but they will do. Once the sun comes out while I'm at home, I'll get some really great pictures, but for now, I feel like I can list items again. Oh, and even better picture new, Canon is going to fix my broken camera so I'll really be back to normal soon.

I also sat down and fixed a couple of necklaces that didn't survive when my craft show display took a nosedive off of the window sill the other day. They are as good as new. While that didn't lead to any new items, I did sit down and so something at my desk. I finally unpacked the last 2 boxes of crafting goodies I had this past Sunday when I added a shelf to my set up. Now it's a mess.

I said I unpacked them, I didn't say anything about organizing them.

I still have grandiose visions of really putting a dent in getting the crafting area cleaned up and the guest room organized before Friday night. Barbara, a roomie from my days in Austin, is coming up for a visit and to watch The Longhorns trample the Razorbacks on TV (didn't get tickets to the game in Austin, so coming up to Fayetteville is the next best thing I though, and so did Barbara). It's not that I need to impress Barbara with my mad organizational skills, it's just that I want it to look put together for my sake. I want to be a good hostess with a relaxing guest room and amazing guest bath.

Ah well, perhaps it will be done in time for my next visitor.

I already know what a certain one of you will say - something along the lines of "it's okay to take it easy". I know it is... I'm guilty of being just like my mom. Always going going going.

I hope your friend doesnt read your blog, because then your cover will be blown!

Hey, a messy craft space is a happy craft space because its getting used (or at least thats what I tell myself seeing as mine always looks like a tornado hit it!)

Hey Melodie - Thanks for the tip. I was worried about ol' Mr. Ike messing things up for us.

No prob. My dad called me this morning to tell me. Keep your fingers crossed!

I knew the knitting thing would get your attention. I don't know why it just dawned on me that I might like doing that. I think it all started with the fact that a ton of my friends are knocked up. I normally do a needle stitch something or other for the new babies, but bah. I'm tired of that. So, hence maybe knitting. Once I get through this last calendar, I'll look at that web site you sent me. I hope I'm smart enough to figure it out!

How was your weekend?

I know that now the days are shorter, taking good photos is going to be twice as tricky with the lack of natural daylight. I swear, half the work is just preparing for listing rather than making things!
