This year is quickly winding down, isn't it? The days seem to just slip by. I've been off my morning routine for several weeks now, and it has made me feel a bit off-kilter. I'm not sure if I'll be able to regain that balance before Christmas, but hopefully, I will in time to psyche myself up for the new year. Maybe. I can't quite seem to put my finger on what's made me so unbalanced as of late. But, I'll push forward as there isn't any other option, is there? Anyway, here's a peek at what I was able to stop and capture this week.
I know I kept myself busy on Monday - maybe too busy as there's not a picture to share. Most of my work was business-related as I packaged a few orders and worked on videos.
Since Monday was so full of work, I went grocery shopping on Tuesday. On my return from the store, the lack of a barn was in full view.
It rained before we got up on Wednesday, so I found the maple leaves dripping and had to capture that beauty for all to see.
On Thursday, I headed to Mobile to deliver a couple of orders and help my mom with a few things. Before I left though, I made sure that I uploaded a video on making gift tags.
I'm really smitten with those tags!
I had a rough time focusing on Friday, but did knock out quite a few tasks. When I went to pay the bills, I got a kick out of our final bill from AT&T
I also worked on getting Beaded Bookmarks made for my Etsy gifts.
As I worked on wrapping the LAST of the gifts and baking some cookies on Saturday, Pat was tearing down more of the barn. When I stepped out to check on his progress, I found some real treasures.
And, we found another bottle of random poison.
Second, what the heck are we supposed to do with this?
In the evening, we watched the SEC Championship football game. It was a tough one, but we (Alabama) won in the end. The last quarter about killed me. Apparently, that's considered a good game. lol.
Throughout the week, I made sure to do my stamp carving for #CarveDecember
I was all over the place this week and didn't have much time to search for inspiration. I apologize for the short list.
- The Blue Bottle Tree has a list of several ways to secure post earrings to polymer clay.
- If you're into metal stamping, Interweave has 13 ideas for metal stamped jewelry and personalized gifts.
- I really love the simplicity of these paper star ornaments.
- And, here's another ornament tutorial that caught my attention: felt Christmas ornament patterns.
