Crazy Busy!

Whew this week/month/year has been way out there and I'm now just realizing it!
I have some bad news and some good news to share with you. Unfortunately the house I put an offer in on went into foreclosure this is both bad and good news, obviously I got my offer in to late but once it comes back on the market we're looking to put the offer in right away. In the meantime I'm still looking at other houses and have found a couple I like (with driveways!!!) I even put an offer in on one yesterday, even though I don't think I'll get it at the price I offered this gives me hope. I'm realizing more and more what I want and what is out there and there's a lot out there so I'm not going to sulk over one that I didn't get.
Right now I have a pink mushroom ottoman up in the shop on sale!!

I love making these guys but I don't have the room for them to take over my apartment.
I have quite a few new styles of plugs in my shop also and even some sales :D
Ever since the beginning of the year I've been non stop busy with orders, house hunting and thrifting. I love it and wouldn't change it one bit. There's a couple more projects I'm going to start on since I'm done with mushrooms at the moment so hopefully there will be some new items to share with you soon.
The weather is warming up and that means estate and rummage sales!!!

Not To Sound Like A Broken Record.....

I know I repeat a lot of the issues I have quite frequently, sorry for that. But.....I really need to figure out how to deal with these things! It seems like I try one thing and it works for awhile and then I either give up, forget or it doesn't work out. Humph. Some of the things I can think of off the top of my head are
Organization! Ahhh this one has always been my enemy! It's getting better but I still have troubles with it.
Doing one project and finishing/sticking to it. Another MAJOR problem. There's soooo many things I start and don't finish or I'll start orders and then go do something else before I finish those and it messes everything up. Some things I'm working on right now-orders (obviously), more mushrooms (Milo won't let me sell the originals), screen printing (I've made many screens but haven't printed them on anything???? Whats up with that!?!) and getting back into sewing just to name a few.
What I think would help most is having a room for my work but the loft I live in is just like a huge hallway with nothing sectioned off. I loved it at first but man now does it suck! Even if I don't want to do work it's staring me in the face and I have to do it. Looking at more houses this week so maybe we'll eventually find something. I'm not sure if I had mentioned before that I put an offer in on one and we're still waiting to hear back about that (if we get it I will be sooooo happy!). Well off to do more work! Have a great weekend!
