A Little Of This And That!
Hello all! I hope each of you enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day! Mine was just lovely, a day filled with rest, relaxation and plain goodness! Mother's Day as we all know is a day filled with flowers! Knowing just how much I love to share beautiful florals with you all, Honey took time out to capture some really pretty blooms over the weekend!
One thing I did do for myself this weekend, a little Mom's Day gift to me, was to do a little reorganizing in my studio crafty room! I made a trip to my local Micheal's and also paid a visit to The Container Store, boy do I love The Container Store, it is a fabulous place for all things containers! This place has everything us crafters love! Storage jars both big and small, caddies, boxes, containers for craft papers, scrapbook supplies and soooooo much more! Honey promised to help me get organized and helped he did!:o) Now I can see all my supplies at a glance! Everything is in jars of all sizes and I even purchased a new caddie on wheels that have six pull out and removable drawers, I love it! What sparked all of this was a copy of the magazine "Where Women Create" a fabulous magazine filled with wonderfully creative spaces both large and small, lots of tips and ideas and tons of inspiration....a visual beauty! If you are thinking of doing a little reorganizing or completely redecorating your creative space this lovely magazine is a must. By the way there is a book with the same title that proceeded the magazine, the book is just lovely and so are the spaces. I still yet have some changes I would like to make, but a little at a time is the way to go for me, in that way I can think things through and it is a whole lot easier on the budget! :o) When I am done with my little changes I will be sure and share photos!
By the way, I am hoping to have my Etsy Shop open again before summer's end. I wanted so much to reopen for Spring, but not so. Although I was a little disappointed, there is one wonderful thing about having to wait just a little longer. It gives me much more time for creative thought, not mention a lesson in patience. :o) I really want my Etsy Shop to be a special place and believe all things take place in its time.
Wishing each of you a beautiful week filled with goodness!
