Monday Catch-Up (sorta)

Welcome to MONDAY. Mine is not going too badly. How's yours going? This is the wall of my darling middle daughters bedroom. If this doesn't wake you up, you are in a coma and in need of medical attention. Call 911, fast.
This weekend was so productive for me. I am tooting my horn here. I made TONS of progress in my Scraproom.

The desk is now cleared.

Both on top and underneath.

I only have 3 out of 25 cubbies in my shelf unit to go through.

My scraps drawer has been purged. I saved nothing smaller that 4x4, or strips of paper narrower than 2 inches. (Quickutz) I still have alot, but, not as much.

I took part in the BPS Get Organized, Be Inspired Super Saturday event. I was pooped at the end of the day. I think I may make a habit of jumping up every 45 minutes and running to the computer (or wherever) on a regular basis. I am altering the "recipe" so to speak. (I am not known for following directions, recipes, etc...So why start with following a class agenda!!?!?!?) The class calls for totally emptying your scrap space. I really don't think I can do that and stay married. I kinda like my husband, so I am taking this in bits and pieces. For the most part it is working. Except the really cool pictures of everything emptied out that everyone else is posting. I won't be able to post those. Anyway, I still need to figure out what to do with the stuff on the shelves above the desk. I have some ideas, so don't despair.

I have also decided to give my fabric stash to some organization. If you look below in the pictures, you will see a smaller bookshelf. It is loaded with fabric from my Quilting days. This is the stash I wish to release to a good home. The local chapter of Project Linus is not accepting fabric. They have too much. Go figure. I finally am ready to purge, and I can't give the stuff away. Let me know if you have any ideas. I thought I might open an ETSY shop. But it really seems like a lot of work. (Have I mentioned that I am somewhat lazy???)

Once the fabric is gone, I will have more space to display mini albums. Which I LOVE!!! They are cute and easy to make and they are done in almost no time.

Slow and steady wins the race. Not that I am racing, but I am not a patient person either.
I want it all and I want it NOW.

Okay, now for the pretty pictures. Here are a few of my favorite things:

Plumerias - I just love the texture and fragrance.

Coffee - Nothing further to note.

Turtles - Right up there with Owls for me.

Until next time. Take it easy.
