Organized and Decorated...

Good Morning Everyone!

I've had the most amazing week last week.  I wasn't necessarily going to to take a WHOLE week off to clean and organize, but I did and I am so grateful!

I didn't realize I had let so many things go...Cobwebs in the shower, baseboards with so much dust you could grow a corn crop, lamps that you knew any moment might burst into flame from a short in the wires, the lawn looking more like the plains of Africa than a yard, flower pots with dead plants in them that begged to be dumped out, bathroom shelves loaded with year old expired toiletries that needed to be tossed...and of course, it was time to pull out the Christmas decorations and get that done...I have worked my tail feathers off and honestly enjoyed every moment of it.  It's been awesome to finally catch up...

My week of cleaning, organizing and decorating is done and somehow I can see clearer now...Or maybe that's all the Christmas lights that illuminate each corner of my house....

It was back to work yesterday, kitting kitting and more kitting!  Today I hope to have it finished and this will be the first time EVER the kits will be done weeks before the class!  Yahooo!

Also on the schedule for today is my Ustream show, Take Out Tuesday.  Be sure to grab some chenille stems, beads and some soft bendable wire and join in tonight at 7:00 p.m. Central.
