the countdown begins...

ok, it's March 21, and the official countdown to summer vacation has begun. I know it's a little early, but a girl's gotta have dreams. Basically, my countdown works in weeks. I have a sticky note pad with 8 pieces of paper, and I just pull one off after the week is over, and then it says '7' underneath. It's a great joy to rip off each page. I know, small things bring me much happiness. I just can't even begin to fathom that pretty soon I'll actually have the time and energy to make and do everything that I want to get done. And sleep in...
Yay for summer!
And the excitement is even more intense, because I know that this is the end of my teaching career. (With children at least). I'm really looking forward to teaching workshops with adults. Let's get crafty, ladies!!
I took a picture of my desk the other day, because it seems like every time I need to sit down and complete orders or make something new, I have a giant pile of crap on my desk. So I've gotten pretty good at picking out anything important and scooping all the tiny bits of paper, thread, wire and fabric (only the scraps that are smaller than an inch~) off into the garbage.

I also took a picture of my giant box of bubble envelopes I ordered, because it's so wonderful to have 100 or so sitting there waiting to be filled with orders, instead of always worrying if I have enough. Surprisingly, they take up less space than I thought. It saves a lot of money doing it that way too.

I'll post some pics of my other shop as soon as I have some.

Love your blog - I know some adorable 4 year old triplets that live in Papillion (my niece and nephews) - they'd make great models!
