Happy Birthday to Me!

I want to thank everyone again for their kind words and support after yesterdays blog post.  I am feeling much better today, actually I was feeling better by the time I finished writing that post last night. Then I got to spend a couple of hours chatting with a Dear Facebook Friend, and that helped me feel even better.  I am not back to the delusional stage yet, but happily content at the moment anyway.  I did spend the entire day working my little tail end off cleaning, which could be pretty sad when you consider that today was my birthday.  But I was cleaning my studios, and it was absolutely exactly what I wanted to spend the day doing, so I had a grand time. 

My main studio, as I have mentioned before, is outside the main house, off the back of the garage.  It has, over time become more of a storage area than a studio, but I managed to rearrange things enough today that I now have a work space again, and a new photography studio!  I still need to get lights, and a tripod, and another couple of  sheets to put up on the wall, but I think this is going to work awesomely.  And the photography wall can double as a design wall, so I finally have one of those as well!  Yea me!

So the main studio is basically clean and ready to serve a useful purpose (or two) again.  I got about half way through cleaning the "bonus room" which I use as an in the house studio, as well as a storage room, and then I got too tired to continue.  (We have a lot of stuff, so we have a lot of storage.)   Now my back hurts, and my legs hurt, and I am very tired, but I feel pretty darned good.  I will have time tomorrow to finish cleaning the bonus room, and the quilt batts I bought should be here tomorrow, so I can get back to pinning quilts again when I am done cleaning.

While I was cleaning today I also found about 30 new projects to work on.  So I should have no excuse for not doing anything for a while.  Not that will stop me.  But I definitely have plenty to keep me busy for the next few weeks. And just wait until you see all the nifty, neat-o, cool type stuff I am going to be having in my Etsy shop this Fall!  Get your Christmas lists ready because Mother is going to have some great gift items coming in real soon!

For now I think I will sign off from here and go do some shopping around online to see if I can find the things I need for the photography end of things.  Now that I have the space set up I am in a hurry to put it to use.  I decided to re-shoot all of the pictures for the t-shirts and I just can't wait to get to it.  I will probably break down and actually leave the house to go shopping tomorrow.  I really don't want to have to wait for the stuff to come through the mail!  Oh well, I need to get my husband an anniversary present anyway, we will be celebrating 10 years together this Friday!  I have no idea what to get him, but I am sure I will find something if I look hard enough. 

Until next time ... Namaste.
