Late Night On The Farm!

Good Morning Everyone!

Hope the first day of the new year was WONDERFUL for you!  It started out iffy for me, but changed mid-afternoon!  LOL!  Is that possible?  :)  Yahooo!

I just wanted to share a couple of photos before I hit the hay....(Totally Exhausted Here!) Reality starts tomorrow and back to work I go.  I got so much done and I thank God I had the time off to do it.  Did I already say back to reality tomorrow....LOL!

Well, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to my WONDERFUL friends Barb and Cesar for helping me pack and put the final touches on samples tonight.  What a total Godsend....

You may have heard me mention Barb or "TexasBarb" before and when she emailed me tonight and asked if I needed help, I called her back and said HECK YEAH!  She was her in 15 minutes!  She's just amazing and I am so grateful to her!  She helped until 1:30 a.m.!!!  Thanks so much Barb!


Dig all that stuff laid out all over the place...You shoulda seen the floor!  It was worse!  LOL!

And Thank You Cesar for doing the packing, boxing, labeling and picture taking!  You Rock my friend!  So appreciate you!



Well I'm off to get some sleep!  Have a wonderful week Y'all!  For those of us going back to work after our Christmas break...We Can Do It!  :)

See ya on the flip side!

  7. Yep...LATE night. I have to tell you....I looked at my watch sometime during the night and it said 9:10. When I got in my car to go home...the clock in the car said 1:43...thought there was something wrong with my car clock. I couldn't possibly be THAT late. Turns out my old watch has died. I couldn't believe we worked until the wee hours.

    I'm so glad you called, Jim. I can't remember when I've had so much fun...in a LONG, LONG time. I so enjoy spending time with you and Cesar...LOVE you both!!!

  9. Enjoyed reading your post, as I have found crafters to be the nicest and sweetest people. Glad your day turned around and that the cavalry came and all was well. Good luck at work, it is my first day back too...and I am missing my craft room already!

  14. Thank you for the pictures. I enjoyed seeing your craft room from the other side of the room. For some reason - don't ask why! - I thought you crafted in your garage!!! Far from it - a beautiful room!
    Happy New Year!

  20. Good work, Barb and Cesar! You stepped in when the rest of us couldn't and it's wonderful to know you did. An extra touch of magic for Jim's CHA work.
    I hope the morning wakeup call wasn't too tough, Jim.It's back to regular schedules. Just wait - it'll be getting close to the holidays again in no time.

  21. Great friends Jim. Cherish them, they are hard to come by. Looking forward to the CHA reveals you have been working on. Hope you took or are planning on taking lots of pics. Hopefully Cesar is going with you so he can help. Happy New Year dear friend. I wish I lived closer, I would be only to happy to lend a hand when needed. Your a doll Jim and we all have adopted you. Our new year has brought some disturbing family health issues. I am in a little bit of a blue mood so I am looking forward to digging into my crafts to help me get thru some of these issues. Hopefully the rest of the year will improve. As CHA is just days away, I am sure you are scrambeling. Have a safe trip and enjoy. I will be watching for you as the videos start appearing.
    Hugs,
    Marcie

  22. If you lived in Oregon, I would be helping you all the time. I so want to get in that craft studio and clean it up for you! We have 3 more days of Christmas break. Some moms out there can't wait, but for me it is sad. As my son gets older, the more I want to be around him. I guess because I know in a few years he will be off to college.

  23. Wow. What an awesome woman Barb is. And we already know what a great guy Cesar is! If I had been home I would have helped too. (Pssssttt, I also have a set of the Tim Holtz feet if you need them. LOL). Feel free to call anytime to see if I have anything you need. Hope you have a great time at CHA. Work is going to be a bear on Monday morning for me. Haven't been there since the 17th! Safe travels Jim.
