This Monday, my college girls are back in school, but the other three are here until Wednesday.
This is a morning where I have sooo much to do that I don't know where to start. I'm going to talk about a couple of things on my mind and then I'm going to get on with making my list and setting the priorities for the day.
- I started a group called Better Late Than Never on Paper Craft Planet. It's a support group for card makers who for whatever reason have trouble mailing cards on time. Come on over and join me if you need help or if you can offer help. My problem isn't organization, per se. As I've mentioned I'm not unorganized but undisciplined. I do realize that if you are not disciplined, you may as well be unorganized... does that make sense? I tend to let my artistic side take over too much. I tend to take on too much. "Just do it" and "Just say No" come to mind, but with my Super Woman/Artistic persona in charge most of the time, I turn a deaf ear to all of that. As you can see, I'm still working through all of this. You'll probably get sick of hearing about it before I get it all figured out. :)
- Hero Arts! New catalog! Oh My Goodness... and I'm not being paid to say this. I had the privilege of helping get some things ready for the new catalog, which means I've already seen it. And I'm here to tell you that there are sooooo many sets I LOVE. I've always loved their stuff, which is why I jumped at the chance to work for them. Each year after the new catalog is released, I always have a wish list. BUT this year, there are a greater number of stamps and sets that I have to have than I can remember in the past. The new catalog is available online now!
- Back to the getting cards in the mail on time... I had a revelation just this morning... drumroll please.... I'm going to use cards from my stash for the people on my list this month. These would be cards that I've already made . Whew! I said it and now I'm relieved. Now when my secretary arrives, I'll get her to stamp and address the envelopes and meet the mailman. Oh, you didn't know I had a secretary? Yeah, her name is "Somebody". I think she's related to "Not Me" because no one has ever seen her, but we talk about her all the time. "Somebody needs to take the dog out!"... "Somebody needs to take the tree down!"... "Somebody needs to clean up this kitchen"... you get it, right?
