Been busy today trying to get Christmas cards made for the Wide Hollow bazaar on Nov.5th.I worked myself right out of my room since I have sparklies (Stickles) drying on every surface in my room.  So I am quitting for the night.  Got all my laundry done today too, so tomorrow should be able to gets lots done.  It might be work if I didn't love it so much.

Creation or Natural Disaster

I have been working on a "Book Report" for the card club I attend and Craft Warehouse once a month .I get a free card magazine if I make several facsimilies of the ideas in the book with what I have. When I am feeling inspired I forget everything else and get totally absorbed in my "creations".  When I am finished I am sometimes shocked to see the mess I have also created.

Since my last post I have encountered many changes in my life. I have decided with the help of a dear and talented friend to start selling my cards. We are just beginning and will have our first exhibit on Sept. 10th at the Women's Century Club. How we are received will help me know if this is right. My little companion loves me whether I am a success or not.

Sweet rewards

Last week I helped take care of two of my grandchildren who had to miss their school due to illness. I knew the chances were that I would catch it too, but was still glad to give them a warm comfy place while they were not feeling well.

Sure enough I now have the same thing. I would still do it again. But i received and unexpected reward this morning when, there was the pounding of small footsteps on my porch. Brooke arrived before school carrying a lovely potted tulip and a card thanking me for taking care of her last week and sending get well messages. She had embellished the card with drawings and sweet messages.

I'm so thankful to have these sweet little persons in my life. I helps me to smile between coughing spells.

My daughter in Montana got a new car and while I was on the phone with her today she put her 4 year old on the phone to tell me about it. She said "Just a minute Grandma, I'll show you." and tried to go out with the phone. She was pretty disgusted with me when I told she had to tell me about it with words. At that point she said she wanted to talk to Grandpa. Oh well! You can't win them all.

Crazy day or crazy woman?

Today I am considering changing the name of my blog to "Diary of a Mad Housewife" This morning I realized the Dr. appointment I thought I had today was yesterday and the lab appointment I thought was tomorrow, was today. Well I arranged to play catch up on those tomorrow, but in order to do so I must miss two of my favorite activities of the week. Hoping I will catch up to myself by the end of the week. The old saying "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!" Seems to be true in my life right now.
