Oh – I just had to laugh at myself . . .
I got up early this morning (just before six – which is good considering that I have been sleeping until almost seven over the holidays) and I got to the task of doing some ‘house cleaning’ on my computer. You know the stuff – organizing your files, answering emails, sorting through things – the usual.
I got things pretty much under control and I am almost ready for a back up and to start working on my files for taxes and I am sitting here with it still being dark out thinking to myself “Boy! I am really ahead of the game this morning!”
Then it hit me . . . I have a BLOG to write this morning!
Oh, how soon we forget! ;)
I think I am getting old.
I did start the year off yesterday getting some things accomplished. I got the next newsletter written and our site is updated with new patterns and sales (http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com). While I haven’t been doing much designing in these past couple of weeks, Keith has been busy with a couple of new patterns. He made this lovely plaque to add to his “Self-Framing Leaf Bordered Wildlife” series (SLDK236)
And another Bible plaque – this one is from Psalm 118:1 (SLDK347):
(It is a good thing that ONE of us is working! ;) )
Both of these designs are available on our site now, along with lots of other fun winter projects to replace all of those empty spaces in your house since you put away your holiday directions.
We also have new specials on our Pattern Specials page to kick start you on your Valentine’s Day projects. It is never too early to get started. :)
As for me, I am really getting moving after my nice break. I have many ideas and I will be at the scroll saw today so I should have something to show you tomorrow.
The vacation is definitely over and I am back at doing what I love to do the best – design!
We are expecting some really frigid weather and lots of snow here in Nova Scotia, so I am going to be kept pretty busy staying here at home and working. I hope the results will be lots of fun, new projects. It is a great way to start the year.
Have a wonderful day today. Stay safe and warm.
Happy Thursday! :)
