Update, Week 4

Here it is another week and NO projects.  I am feeling a little stronger and I'm on less medication, so that's a plus.

I still have all these beautiful new products scattered on my desk. Well, I did straighten them a little so you can see them better. :)

I have been trying to purge, sort, and organize also.  Not such a good thing to be doing when I really should be creatingOf course, that has been going real, real slow also.

My wonderful husband installed some shelving in my Studio B closet over the weekend.  I want to put my retired stamps and papers, my Catalogs and Stampin' Success magazines along with other miscellaneous craft supplies in there. I had most of the supplies stacked laying on the floor  in plastic containers, which was inconvenient and a total waste of useable space.

I really like things neat and organized before I craft. Clutter just causes me to "shut down". Of course, this surgery has shut me down pretty much.  I sure can tell I'm 69 not 39 anymore! Healing takes a little more time and I find my energy level is not what I would like it to be. Everyone tells me just to rest when I need to and heal. On the bright side, I've gotten to read 4 books which have been on my Kindle for a long time. I wouldn't normally take the time to read that many in such a short time, but that's what I have a lot of right now.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and do something CRAFTY, unlike me!



  1. Wow! It sounds like you are doing pretty well here at the 4 wk. mark! I admire your wanting to organize your craft room with a newly replaced knee! I had some furniture moved out of my craft room and some other furniture moved in, so now I have to unpack boxes, purge and reorganize. It's a slow process. I can't wait to see what you create with your new Stampin Up stuff:-) Take care!

    1. Yes, Elisha I'm thankful that I'm doing fairly well at this point. Start the real "hard core" PT this week. I'm not looking forward to it, but if I want to use my knee properly it needs to be done. I tend to be a little crazy when it comes to organization. My husband just shakes his head and smiles. :} And your right, it's a slow process, but I hope to have it done before the weekend. Blessings on your reorganizing. B


I would love to hear from you!
