Off to a Slow Start...

I don't know about you but my January is off to a really slow start. I finally got the Christmas decorations all put away but I haven't gotten the house back in order yet...tables are empty, the mantle is bare and the table I moved into Shelby's room to make room for the tree is still sitting in Shelby's room. Maybe this weekend right? I so much wanted to get in on a valentine swap but guess what? ...Yep, I was too slow...they're all closed now so here I sit, making valentines for myself. I'll have to remember next year to start looking in December!
I love Julie Collings blog and in one of her recent posts she challenged her readers to dig out an old project they've been wanting to work on and get to I dug out my 7 Gypsies ATC Card Holder that's been sitting around collecting dust but I haven't actually started anything...does just looking at it count? I think I've decided to do a monthly little album type project and make 5 ATC's for each month concentrating on the most important Jan 6th my middle child turned 17, just one year closer to him leaving me like Shelby did! {SIGH}
Ok...I've got to show you one more thing...I ran to an antique show at a local mall, this woman who sets up everytime they have a show had a new little idea that was a HUGE hit...she's got little plastic tubs full of random bits of Jewelry...I spent about 40minutes digging through the $.50 bins and found all this fabulous stuff, I especially like the religious trinkets.

That's it for now...hopefully one of these days I'll get around to filling up my Etsy store again...I think I'm down to 8 items. I need to start using up all these little treasures I keep buying!
