Do you ever wake up on a Monday morning with too many things to do on that list? Well, it was one of those mornings for me. Which direction do I drive first to get the most out my day before the fatigue hits me? Hopefully I will get most of my errands done today.
The above image is from my vintage cabinet card collection. As you can see I am still looking at the doll theme items this week. I thought I would share another girl and her dolls image with you.
I have a lot projects that I need to complete...journals, scrapbooks, and special order gift tags.
Today I am hoping to get out and attend a craft fair at a local church. Treat myself to lunch!
Do you ever have days or nights that your mind races with creative ideas? It has been like that for the past few days for me. Now if I can only get organized to create. I used to be able to multi task when I worked...I was a deadline junkie. Not anymore...I can only work on one creative project at a time. I must confess that I am a messy creative person. My work area gets papers, buttons, fabrics, and laces all over the room. So needless to say this overwhelms me now.
I read a post earlier this morning about lists and shopping. Oh I can relate to this post. Too many of the same items have been purchased with or without lists! But I really think most of us are guilty of this at one time or other. Me, maybe too often. Again I get overwhelmed at the grocery store. Mostly if I am going to have the energy to finish the task at hand...grocery shopping. You see I am lucky if I can get 2 things done a list of 3 or 4 things or places that need to get accomplished before the fatigue hits me.
So I am thankful for today that I feel I may be able to get something accomplished on my list!
Wishing you a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
I have to apologize for not being a good blogger lately. I haven't been visiting any of my favorite places for about 2 weeks now. I am hoping to visit and comment on your lovely blogs this week. I promise it is on My To Do List.
Speaking of lists...I find that now I have to make a list of everything I need to get while out trying to run errands for our home and personal stuff. Lists make me feel really old! I guess you can say that I try to feel young since my mind feels young and not my real age. HA! See the lists isn't about forgetting things...they are about marking off the few things I can get before the fatique hits me.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Wishing you a great week! Sharon
I want to share with you some images of our home during the Fall. The weather is still warm here, but the mornings are getting cooler. The above image is from our kitchen table. I really don't do too much decorating for Halloween but generally for Fall. I just don't have the energy to do all the themes since my days are really limited due to lack of energy and a lot of pain.
This is the front of our home.
I am getting ready to work on a large project for my sisters. So this project may take some time...weeks for that matter to finish. That is why I have so many Christmas gift tags listed in my Etsy shop so early. I will sharing some photos of my project with as I go along the process.
My blog focuses on my vintage discoveries and treasures, and a showcase for some of my favorite vintage inspired handcrafted items and collectibles. I offer free vintage postcard images from my collection. I am a self taught mixed media artist...so please join me on my journey of searching for vintage and antiques for repurposing. Making old memories new again!
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. ~ Mary Jean Iron
