Nine more weeks to 400 WOYWW!  Well back from Galveston and trying my best to catch up on things.  The next two weeks are busy.  That means i cannot spend all my time in my studio and both Chris and I will be out a lot.  This means my un-routine will be an un-un-routine and I will have to look CAREFULLY at my calendar so I know what day it is and where I should be.
Galveston was fabulous.  we were joined by our friends Kate and Dennis this year. 
the decor in the poolside bar was obviously designed with my colors in mind! Note I did not go swimming but I sampled the goods at the bar and the pool was not full of people who looked like the people in the ads for the San Luis!


They were just finishing planting as we arrived it was a cacophony of color.  The entry hall was all decked out with Christmas figures and nodding deer, also overrun by rug rats!


This is a very small part of the buffet taken after a few glasses of wine and my first 3 courses.   this chef was slicing up duck served …

hello all to all of my fellow hobbyists wherever in the world you are posting.

My blog is written on Tuesday as tomorrow we leave to spend Thanksgiving in Galveston, with friends Kate and Dennis, at the San Lois Resort.  Today is overcast so later I will attempt to get a photo of my desk where there are WIP.  The Documented Life Project (DLP) will end this year so I am searching for a new journaling group to work along with in 2017 on a daily basis.  Earlier I joined Wanderlust a group with a monthly challenge and guest artists to add dimension to my  skills and interests beyond journaling.  So far for journaling considering, My Life of Self Expression with Gina Ahrens et al( each has a facebook location all a little with a slightly different style.  It a little confusing as they post to  each others' facebook page and so you get each post at least 4 times.  Several other journal groups were looked at but were too structured.  DLP is very professional, so I am spoilt,  by professi…

HELP What do you all use to motivate yourselves to clean up your desk?  I have been trying for 2 weeks and I am just NOT motivated.  Nothing is lost, like scissors or special pens that usually spurs on a tidy.  At the weekend I  sorted out and donated unwanted ATCs and swap postcards that were 5 or more years old.  This was a cat induced activity as she wanted the box to sleep in.
 So here is the low down,  My problem comes from all those bloggers, classes, teachers etc who say never throw anything away.    Friends, acquaintances and visitors....NEVER listen to this advice. Unless you have an organizing system for scraps that has categories for color, shape, size, type, etc etc etc.  You will never find that one inch blue scrap of paper with a great floral design when you want it.  Only after you have glued, stitched or both  from a handy large piece will that scraps location be revealed.  AND now you have added to the scraps!
My workspaces this week as of Tuesday 10.03 am CST!
