Yesterday, things were feeling a bit piled up. Deadline upon deadline, un-washed hair upon "that-same-old-ugly-t-shirt" look that I seem to have day after day ... and then I went to pull something out of the fray (shipping labels, to be precise) and the whole thing came crashing down. On my feet.
Well, you all know exactly what I was feeling. Thank you for your words of kindness and encouragement!
Today, I felt a little more like this.
It's amazing what organizing a closet can do for your spirit. It sounds silly - but it's quite true. The extra benefit of organizing one's studio closet (which was previously completely useless as it had no shelving) is that I can now see all of the yarn I have in my stash. And boy oh boy, do I have plans ...
Just because it's good to keep those little blessings in mind when your figurative closet spills out onto the floor ...
I'm thankful for:
-My new dutch rubber broom. My good friend and fellow crafter, Karen, recommended it, and I will never go back to the broom and the swiffer. Best of all? I can attach an old, damp hand towel to it with rubber bands and my kitchen floor is mopped in minutes. No buckets. No water-sogged floor. No kidding.
-My son who has taken to hacking when he laughs. "Kah! Kah!" I'm so in love.
-My little feature over on The Lovely List - if you haven't checked out the Lovely List before, you're in for a treat!
-My talented husband who is putting the finishing touches on our re-designed website, which will be launching next Monday, along with ...
-THE BOOK! Make sure you're here on Monday the 14th for a big book preview - and signed copies will be available for pre-order in my shop!
