So much to do, so little time...

Today is a great day!

Seriously. I feel like my 'to do' list is overwhelming at times - is yours? Sometimes, my list is all in my mind, and my mind is going a million miles a minute with different thoughts crossing each other like roads on a map.

First, the winner of the Maya Road CHA-S rak! I couldn't choose just one, so I chose two! Using a random number generater, the winning entries are:

Ladies, send me your mailing information and I'll get a little love package out to you this coming weekend.

Okay, so in other news...

Really so very much is going on...

ILately, my thoughts have really been focused on what is really important in life. While I admit that my artistic passions are incredibly important, my family and relationship with my husband outweight it at least three fold. They are incredible - all of them in their own individual and fabulously special ways. I'm absolutely blessed to have them all as part of my life.

We're almost ready for the "real" repair work to get started on the house. Oh my. Seriously, if I could do everything I wanted to this house I'd be in hog heaven. Reality is though, it's going to take time, and we're going to have to do it wisely. We're paying for all of the repairs and changes ourselves. While it would be so fabulous to have it all done right NOW (and believe you me, I have my days - more often than not - where I want it done yesterday), I have to be patient, and let everything run it's course. So much will be done to our home when it's finished, that it won't look like it's original (when we bought it) state. I think I'm most looking forward to the tile floors throughout the entire first level. Can you imagine how great it will be to not worry about dust and stuff in the carpet. Oh, what heaven I hope I'll be in.

Since nothing is going to be happening repair wise in my studio, I've tried to focus on being in there, going through my stashes and moving boxes, and just generally getting everything organized or situated. Man, I have a LOT of crafting stuff. Seriously - it's almost (Note I did say ALMOST) ridiculous. Of course, since I do love it all so, it's not. But, it could one day be. One of these days I'll have a big crafting garage sale and clear out the products and items that are stifling my creativity. Do you ever feel stifled by the sheer amount of "stuff" you have? Please tell me I'm not alone.

I'm also really focusing on eating better, not only me but for Steve too. We need to work on making sure our bodies are getting the right nutrients and the right vitamins the natural way and not through supplements or unnatural sources. Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer in supplements - they've helped me immensely over the years. However, they have become my sole main source of vitamin intake - not a good thing. Of course, it is my fervant hope that by following a more stringent and healthy eating plan that we can get and keep our bodies in tip top shape and avoid the health issues that genetically we gravitate toward (cancer, etc) or the issues which appear to become more prevelant in our society today (cancer, obesity, heart disease, etc).

Alright, I'm rambling so I'll stop. Wow.. this is really a deep post compared to my normal light and fruity posts. Hmmm maybe that means something subliminally.

I hear you on the stash issues. Right now I'm sort of immobilized by all the stuff in my study. I've got 4 or 5 projects, all in various stages & it's overwhelming to go in there. Can't wait until I have a few free days/nights to get some order in there.
