« Part 958: Website Updates Part 959 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 960: Having some Fun! »

It is going to be a short post here today, as I don’t feel that I have anything particularly interesting to share with you all today. It’s one of those times when I am finishing up the loose ends on one project and moving on to the next. I have several different directions which I want to head and I need to just take one at a time and move forward. But in between, I need to tidy things up and sort, backup and reorganize some things to keep everything running smoothly.

Days like this don’t make for very exciting reading I am afraid. But I wanted to stop in and say ‘hi’ anyway.

I plan to spend the day today getting stuff in order again. I have some paperwork to do and I need to map out the next couple of projects. And I still have some work to do to get ready for tax time.

I could go on, about nothing, but we all have better things to do. With that said, I hope you all have a good day.

Happy Wednesday! :)

Thanks for the post and, always, for the cute cat photos. This is what I have been doing lately. I am already thinking about fall projects and craft fairs. Any planning and organization is worth while.

Yup Sheila, the between job tidy up
It is an important part of it all, I often dont get the chance and
it soon piles up. At the moment the pile is high and although I was
intending in a clear up today, I agreed to do a special for a tall Amazon
customer. :) It does slow all the other jobs up. However one job leads to another
and I had no Oak legs so I need to mill plane and join a mini batch up then tidy up
I hope.

Have a Jolly Day

I think cleanup is part of the whole process. It’s mid-week, hump-day, whatever you call it. The middle always feels good.

Yep! Keeping things in order is an ongoing task. Somehow when we are busy we just don’t take the necessary steps to keep things organized and then we wind up really losing control of everything. I know that I seem to always be organizing, but that is what keeps things pretty much in order and manageable for me.

You have to keep up with the mess you create! :)

Have a great Wednesday!

Good morning Sheila. I know there comes a point that I just have to clean up otherwise my creative juices just don’t flow! I went into my workshop about a week ago intending to start on some projects but I ended up hauling everything out of the workshop, vacuuming, organizing my wood stash and putting everything back in its place. Now I’m working on the fun stuff.
Enjoy your day
Beautiful mild Spring day here.

LOL, Mark! They aren’t my cats! I only have three, but I loved the picture. They must have caught them on a good day! :)
