Hi all, I've missed you muchly

My yard sale is done. That may not sound like a big deal but it is for me. I only had two take backs. One was a cute snowman with a flap ear cap and blue knitted vest (he asked me if he could please come back and play) and the other was a bracelet that I can use on one of my framing projects. Everything else is now happily residing in either someone else's house or Goodwill's warehouse.

I know I will have to have a "craft supply" yard sale in the late fall but I am having a tough time acting upon the necessary duty of culling and gleening. I can still see the projects I was going to make with these things. I will be listing "makings" on Etsy starting the end of August. My plan is to put lots of things together to enable others to create. What do you think about that? Does that sound like a goodie or a dud?

And now I can see half of my garage. The other half is occupied with my packing supplies for Ebay/Etsy and my plastic bins full of material for purses and dolls. And I must admit some bins of things I have collected hold items II hope to sell on Etsy or Ebay depending. But there is a whole open area to walk on and look at and think, gee I could almost get a car in here. It's kinda freaky.

I always feel better getting rid of stuff that owns me instead of the other way around. The dilemna is the conflicting feelings I create in myself...now if I could just learn the big picture lesson from that.

I have, when taking a break, read most of your blogs but didn't allow myself the opportunity to comment or get into the spirals of referrals I usually do. I did however miss (can you spell addiction) all of you. 4 more weeks until school starts, please......hurry, I'm running out of good time juju. At that time I guess I am expecting great things from me and hope to live up to my own expectation of getting back into the studio and actually doing not just dabbling.

~doing and not dabbling...dabbling is fun though but i hear ya...i just told my husband i have so much to do...yet can't it all wait for tomorrow will come and it will all still be waiting...i have kind of been lost in dabbling lately and letting all go by the wayside...

your idea of "makings" is a brilliant idea...i think a way to spark inspiration for others who may want ot create yet don't know what to compile as far as materials...good luck on this adventure...i think greatness will stem from such! warm wishes and brightest blessings~

I've been reorganizing and making room for an apartment inspection, so I was busy for one day and one night (I stayed up all night) and got 'er done! It looks so nice now, but oye weh, if I want something, up on the stepping stool pulling down boxes and bins...digging and looking and I'm right back where I started from...HELP - my hobby is too big for my apartment.

I enjoy this blog! I just now found out about it. I love seeing all your creations and the tea party looks siply magical!

I'm glad you're back and have more room. I think freeing up ones living space, frees up the thinking space as well - unless, of course, if you know you have a certain color yarn and can't recall what bin it's in...argggghhh....time to color code, right?

Happy weekend, Oma Linda!

We are so much alike in some ways it is scary. I hate getting rid of things that I might use someday.

How I love that phrase--"take backs"--i just filled my car with books that are going to Goodwill, the used book store, etc. However, just this morning there was one little take back, an old cookbook I decided that I just couldn't part with. I've got to get to Goodwill before this take back becomes a landslide back into the house!
