Time that is. Maybe it was the Monday holiday, maybe something else … whatever it was, I'm stunned that it's already Friday again.
I'm subscribed to the Organizing Tip of the Day (MarthaStewart.com) and this one today, made me laugh out loud …
"Find inspiration from Martha's own
craft room, which is ingeniously
organized and perpetually neat."
Well then my guess is she isn't using very often!
And maybe I'm just a little perturbed because I have been wanting to clean up my own studio. Which by the way is also ingeniously organized, used every single day of my life and therefore perpetually MESSY.
but then, we don't want Martha to be messy. Martha wouldn't be Martha if she was messy.
One of the projects that came out of my craft room this week was two sophomores dressed and ready for their DECCA showcase. There are a lot of things I could be better at as a mother, but I do have paint and letter stamps!
Speaking of projects … I am loving the exposure BPS is getting at Examiner.com
Michelle Vocke, the national scrapbooking and stamping examiner will be doing a series of interviews and articles on us and I couldn't be more thrilled. We starting off with a promo code that you can use on almost any class we have posted now — click here and read the article. Thanks Michelle!
I'm currently working on some pretty big projects and looking at only TENish more days of school. I know many of you have already started summer … but I'm still in that "Oh No! Here we go again!" place. I SO WANT my kids home and am craving the looser schedule and NO HOMEWORK (except what Dad assigns) but it takes some serious planning … I gave Lauren the day off today and so Addie and I enjoyed running errands this morning. We stopped at Michaels and I stocked up on summer craft supplies. I'm mentally working on my summer plan — will post soon.
One thing I'd like to make time for is this …
The Farm Chicks annual antique show, which is next weekend here in Spokane.
A "farm chick" is girl who sees the world through rose-colored glasses. She loves her family. She laughs a lot. She's farm girl meets fifth avenue. And with a little junk, she'll change the world.
How can you NOT want to be a farm chick? The original farm chicks, Serena and Teri are from my neck of the woods and apparently they put on one heck of a great party. So … while I'm not sure I'm up to waiting two hours in line, which is what some of my friends will be doing, I am hoping to go check it out. Serena and Teri have a NEW book too. Here's the link.
I just heard my boy Chase come in, so I'll sign off with that.
