All About Jilly and Her Stuff

Posts Tagged ‘Artfire

Yes, thank goodness for my online friends.  I met a new friend with the Swap-bot blogger swap the other day.  Beth of The Neat Get Neater has a great blog about her adventures as a, “Self-Proclaimed Neat Freak” in a “family that is not so in love with neatness.”    Drop by and have a read. You can enter her newest giveaway – A Sonicscrubber!

I sure could have used Beth at my house today as I tidied up the rats nest beside my easy chair in the livingroom.  My hubby has been frowning at me lately and I think that is why.  Now, I have no trouble with organizing and I am quite often a very tidy person, however, there are those very creative days where everything gets tossed, dropped, scattered and pushed into a pile while looking for just the right item for my latest craft.    That is how I end up with the rats nest.  Bits and pieces of fabric, yarn, buttons, trim and ribbon scattered here and there just in case I need it.  Now I am all tidy until the next creative moment hits.

Speaking of creative moments, I was able to stop at my favorite fabric store to pick up some supplies for projects.  I walked in on a sale – yipeee, and immediately went insane.  I now have the materials for a birdcage veil I have been planning on making and some trim to finish off a pincushion.  The rats nest will return any day now!

I am still swapping at Swap-bot and yesterday’s mail held a lovely envelope with the Bookmark Swap in it.   I never know what I will receive and this was a lovely way to start my week and they will come in very handy.  It is such fun not to have boring mail now and little surprises show up nearly every day.

Now it is time to go and watch my favorite show – TAPS – The Atlantic Paranormal Society.  Even the beagle knows not to bother me when this show is on.  He has been out for a good walk so there is no excuses from him.  As for the hubby and our son, well, they can go and do whatever they like as long as it isn’t around me.  Nice arrangement!
