It's been an awesomely busy month...and my days are full from the time I get up until the time I go to bed...can you relate?
Between the Betwinchie Canvas class at Scrapbooks, Etc. coming up this Friday, getting kits together for shipment next week, Creative Escape in just a week and two days, and something new that I'm putting together to launch really soon, it's been crazy. I was telling Vern this morning, as I was creating the "something new", if I wasn't working doing this kind of stuff, this is what I'd be doing. Does that make any sense???? I guess that what I'm saying is that I'm doing in life exactly what I love to do. So, it hardly seems right to call it "work" the way we normally refer doing a job that we may not be all that crazy about. While not every day is a fabulously joyous day, and while I may not be crazy about all of the details that have to be taken care of some days, I'm doing what I love...and it makes me happy.
This morning, I checked out the Creative Escape site to see what was new and exciting and was tickled to discover that they had posted about the lamps that the current teachers and former teachers had put together for a raffle to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society...if you have a few minutes, head over to the site and watch the little video...talk about some amazing creations!
We all started with the same lamp from IKEA and you will be amazed at how different they all turned out. Here's the one I did...I gutted the shade and wired hundreds of buttons, new and vintage, to replace the shade. I'm curious to see it all lit up...bet the Mother of Pearl will just gleam. The lamps require a special bulb sold only at IKEA and since I didn't have one, I didn't get to see what it looked like turned on.
For those of you going to Creative Escape, buy lots and lots of tickets...it's going to a great cause and you get a chance to light up your life!
Also, just to let you know, as of the time I am writing this post, I only have one kit left...seems to me that lots of you want to be new Diamond Girls!!! :)) So, if you've been sitting on the fence, you probably don't have a lot of time left to decide...just sayin'!
Maybe tomorrow I'll share a scene from my family room sofa...it'll maybe get you thinking about this "something new" thing I've been
working on creating.
OK, back to _______ ...I have to leave it blank...it's not w.o.r.k., but it's also really not play...so what do I call it? Help!
