one heart one mind

just been checking out blogs for the one heart one mind blog giveaway. amazingly over 900 bloggers have signed up, i don't know if i will even get to all of them. i've already seen so many great people from all over the world! next year i want to sign up so i can have a giveaway, just too new on this and still trying to figure out how to do stuff. went to joann fabrics today, teenage ds babysat the 4yo other ds while dh went fishing. fun to just look at everything, had a nice visit with a gal while looking at pattern books, checked out all the other great books, scrapbook paper, and ohh the fabric-how i love fabric!!! i have so much though i have vowed to not buy anymore until i reduce my stash, unless it's for a specific purpose and i don't have anything that will work. how's that for a good excuse-lol!

blog blogs blogs so many blogs

oh my i have spent hours lately checking and signing up for some amazing giveaways the last few days. one heart one world organized this great blog sharing giveaways with over 900 participants. i have found some great new blogs and i have only checked out about 100 so far. i have a list written down to go and check back, some i just had to follow right away because they are things i love. now hopefully i will win one of these amazing works of art. more boring things now onto clean up the 4yo room! why does the toy they need at the very bottom and every other toy has to come out before? then it's a fight to get them to put them back in!! that's why moms clean so we can toss, donate, hide until they learn if they want it they keep it at least off the floor!

cloth paper scissors oh my

just picked up the new issue and it is delicious!! i really need to subscribe to this magazine, it always inspires and gets ideas going, tricks to try, and plenty of eye candy. sometimes just what you need to read at the moment! one of my goals this year is to get more serious with my art, i have the talent i just need to complete the process and build the inventory. so that is one of my goals this year to get etsy up and going and keep it up, market myself positively and professionaly. well they have a great article about just that making your resolutions stick and gives some great ideas and advice on how to reach your goals once they are set. so this weekend my journal-the real paper kind not computer kind:) is going to get started. im thinking along the lines of vision board/journal, something that has my goals, ideas, inspirations all in one place that i will see everyday. one big thing that made me think is to set up time to create, we get so busy and try to fit it in but to actually alott time in the day just for that. for me my 4yo is in preschool in the morning for 2 1/2 hours plenty of time to get some housework done and some play/create time but i get distracted by all the great blogs, facebook, etsy, ebay, etc. and before i know it time to go pick him up! i really need to use that time better, i know it but i need to do it, only i can make the change and do what i need to do. so i am heading to bed with my new magazine to see what else i can carry into my dreams!! speaking of dreams, mine have been crazy lately. with parts of dreams a few days ago intertwining with the current night, like it's all a book intertwined. don't ever recall so much going on between dreams like this, and how many people and personal things are reacting to each other. wonder what tonight will bring. good night

just a few pictures from one of our fall craft shows.
we forgot to get pictures before so it's a little emptier by the time we remembered!!
