Update Successful

What? I listed a new item in my Etsy shop tonight? Get out!

It has taken me just about FOREVER to get some pictures I liked of some of my new items. By forever I mean at least 3 weeks. They are not exactly my favorite pics, but they will do. Once the sun comes out while I’m at home, I’ll get some really great pictures, but for now, I feel like I can list items again. Oh, and even better picture new, Canon is going to fix my broken camera so I’ll really be back to normal soon.

I also sat down and fixed a couple of necklaces that didn’t survive when my craft show display took a nosedive off of the window sill the other day. They are as good as new. While that didn’t lead to any new items, I did sit down and so something at my desk. I finally unpacked the last 2 boxes of crafting goodies I had this past Sunday when I added a shelf to my set up. Now it’s a mess.

I said I unpacked them, I didn’t say anything about organizing them.

I still have grandiose visions of really putting a dent in getting the crafting area cleaned up and the guest room organized before Friday night. Barbara, a roomie from my days in Austin, is coming up for a visit and to watch The Longhorns trample the Razorbacks on TV (didn’t get tickets to the game in Austin, so coming up to Fayetteville is the next best thing I though, and so did Barbara). It’s not that I need to impress Barbara with my mad organizational skills, it’s just that I want it to look put together for my sake. I want to be a good hostess with a relaxing guest room and amazing guest bath.

Ah well, perhaps it will be done in time for my next visitor.

I already know what a certain one of you will say – something along the lines of “it’s okay to take it easy”. I know it is… I’m guilty of being just like my mom. Always going going going.

For you Texas Fans…

I made this necklace, just for you Longhorn fans out there.

Soon to be found in my Etsy shop. And for those of you who root for a team a bit more local to where I am, once I find supplies, you’ll have your necklace too.

In Preperation

I received good news from one of my best friends yesterday. My roommate from college, Barbara, will be coming up in September to watch the Texas vs. Arkansas game right here in Fayetteville. They are playing in Austin, but getting tickets to that game is impossible so I convinced her to come wear some Texas gear here in the Ozarks and help me root for our team.

That is when the panic set in. I don’t have any Longhorn shirts that were not from my time in Austin. They are old, some have holes, and most have stains. Thankfully, the University Co-op makes it easy to do a bit of shopping online and new shirts were purchased. Crisis avoided. This is one of the two I bought –

The other one is navy blue, which looks super with burnt orange. I cannot wait for game day on Sept. 14. Hook ’em Horns!
