I Know I'm a Slacker!!!

I will fix the page! I will! I just have to get through like a million other things first!!!

I'm super excited to say I'm throwing (with a WHOLE lotta help) a 24-hour bachelorette extravaganza this weekend!!! And it has been a lot of work. In fact, as I sit here typing this I am making lists in my head of all the things I should be doing. Like (and seriously, ya'll, this just hit me) I actually have to pack for it. Not the stuff for food or decorations or gifts or all that other stuff I've been accumulating all week, but pack. Like my own clothes. Yeah, might be important.

Next week will be better. I will make the other page and do all the things I've been wanting to do and not had time for!!!

And, I've pretty much decided on doing an Etsy store...It's just one more of those things that just ain't happened yet...

Thank you for reading this strange, mundane post. I promise it's better than if I told you what the other half of my brain is doing. You really don't care how many pairs of underwear or socks I take this weekend...

The Art Auction. It's OVER!

Happy birthday to me! (Tomorrow.) The Art Auction is over. Honestly, I was a little disappointed by what I made. I was going to be over-the-top thrilled with $100, excited about $50, and happy with $30. I didn't even make $15. So, I have created a new page on here where I will put pictures of everything that didn't sell. Leave a comment or e-mail if you're interested in any of them! I should have them up by Monday! I may do an store, but haven't decided yet...

I'm mostly disappointed because I was in charge of the store and we only made about $150 for W.E.E. in the store (the auction itself did much better) and maybe $300 overall. I put a LOT of work into the store and a TON of work into my things for the store and just feel I put WAY too much work into it just for that small amount of money. However, people didn't even bid on their own children's things, so obviously they weren't into spending money.

I really did enjoy making my things and doing the store, it's just I was hoping for a little bit more reward for all the stress and time crunch and cutting into my life...

Enough moaning.

I have to get ready for the bachelorette shower I'm in charge of next week and clean up after the tornado that came through my house...or, you know, the art auction that came through... so I may not get back to regular posting immediately, but I will soon!!!

Missing Posting But No Time...

I miss writing. But I have NO time to write. I'm not even gonna post pics or anything. In one week I will be 23! In one week minus one day I have the Art Auction! Tomorrow I have a jewelry party and in a week from then I have a Bridal Shower to attend. And one week from that a Bachelorette Party to throw! Then I'll have about two weeks to breath and rest and then two more weeks of craziness and then I'm done. Forever. Or at least until something else big and fun comes along! : )

I Should Be Working on Projects...

But instead I'm uploading pictures from Easter!

These are pictures from my great-grandmother's house.

 The old tractor that "just needs a new battery."

Aloe vera. Crazy, isn't it? 

The lone bluebonnet in Mamaw's yard.

Cabbage. No joke. Wild cabbage.

The old milking barn.

And my most favorite picture. I used it to customize a card.

And a random picture from a car dealership in town.

I have some from the ranch and some of pretty wildflowers around town, but I've decided to go shower now. I have to get up and drive tomorrow!

My Life Has Been Hijacked

If you happen to see my life hiding in a corner somewhere huddled up and crying, please comfort it and let it know I'll be back to see it soon. April 23. Which also happens to be my birthday. I think the auction being over will be the best birthday present ever.

Honestly, I'm excited about the auction and the store, I'm just tired.

I have to finish getting my house clean because people are coming over to work on art auction stuff plus finish my third to last bag.

He Is Risen!

He is risen, indeed!

I hope ya'll had a great Easter. We had a wonderful weekend and I will be uploading pictures and some details about the weekend soon! It was not as sad as I though it would be. For now, I need to work on a few things for the Store and get to bed. I have to be at work at 8 tomorrow and should be heading to bed soon, but I fell asleep at my Momma's house today and took way too long of a nap to go to bed right now.

Tomorrow I'm going to finish one wedding present for my friend! It was going to happen today, but, as I said, I fell asleep. After this weekend, I can show ya'll what I did. It was SUPER easy! And (sorry, Rae, but I really don't think you'll mind) SUPER cheap! A lot of effort and scavenging, but actual money spent is LESS THAN A DOLLAR. Yes. You read that right.

AND, my bridesmaid dress is IN MY POSSESSION! And Mrs. Kathy is going to pin it tomorrow so she can sew it whenever she gets a chance!

And one last thing, I finished distressing my new shelves. So all I have to do is decorate them. And then post pics for ya'll. : )
