Seeing the Light

A fireworks photo taken by Miss Abby on Wednesday night. She was messing with the camera settings and this is one of the results. It is also particularly appropriate to the way my week is progressing. Without going into details here - to protect the guilty - I am having a truly horrid week. This started last week and this week things have come to my attention that are affecting me in a terrible way. I haven't eaten. I haven't slept. Add to that I have a summer cold. And I hate that this is yet another negative start to a post. I am taking a few steps towards nurturing me and that should help. Please think about me while I regroup personally.

Tomorrow we will be playing ball in McDonough, GA. I am really excited because the schedule has a large break for us. That means a trip to Plum Tree Antiques. I do hope Dawn will be there. Dawn writes her personal blog The Feathered Nest and it is a favorite of mine. I cannot wait to see some of her work in person and maybe also take away some display ideas for the store.

I already have the bag packed. The craft bag that is. I have some more of the crochet wash cloths going. I am finally embroidering the background for the Noah's ark wall hanging for my sister. And just in case - I have the Names of Jesus graph with me - to start those for CIP committment.

Remember the list - I have used some of it and have serious plans for more. I am experimenting with a journal idea using some of the scrapbook papers and I have already used several of the tulle circles. I also have started the lettering for my 2008 calendar. It is coming together even more quickly than I thought. I really can't wait to preview it for you guys.

I have a cabinet that I will be finishing similar to the stamp shelf. Using the pages from the postal book and black paint. Seems that the black and red are beginning to define the accents of the studio space. This is a louvered door cabinet that I have had for years and forgotten about. It was tucked behind some stuff in another barn and I unearthed it looking for my sewing cabinet. (another post - another day) I plan to use this one for glues and adhesives and probably paint brushes. Although if it is like the stamp shelf, I have way more of those than I thought.

I am so sorry this rambled on. The explosion of this week has me feeling scattered and injured from the shrapnel. I'll get it back together. Then we can move on with our regularly scheduled program of activities.

Have a great weekend.

Hoping your *regroup* happens quickly and as easily as possible.

I too have a summer cold and it is miserable isn't it?

See it explodes and then it's over leaving you with spots before your eyes for just a couple of seconds, then...GONE.
