It's been a long time since I've tackled the crafty projects with any type of consistency.  Which is too bad since I like to do it so much.  

There are a couple projects on the list, other than sewing on buttons and mending tears. The first of which is to start and of course finish scrapbooking my NYC trip.  Originally I had wanted to get it finished before I went to Boston.  But that didn't quite work out as planned.  So I'm still working on it.  With the weekend here I should be able to finish it and pack the mess away.  It's been a long time since I've done this scrapbook thing and I forget the mess it makes.  Sheesh!

After this project is wrapped up and completed, finally, I have plans for some screen printing, sewing, and a certain yarn shop.  I always feel more creative and motivated when it's warm and the sun is shining. I'm ready for summer!

In other news, it is Friday.  I'd like to say I'm glad it's the weekend, but it looks like it will be as busy as any other day.  I'll be working a few hours on Saturday and then again on Sunday.  Family party tonight, dropping Ellie off tomorrow, laundry and cleaning.  Grocery shopping is already done so at least I don't have to worry about that part.

Knit is tricky to sew with.  Even more so when the pattern pieces are knit.

I still procrastinate things I don't want to do.  I need to grow out of that one.

A straight line from Salt Lake City to Boston is 2000 miles.

I received 2,629 text messages last billing cycle.

It's been a while since too many thoughts kept me up at night.  It was relieving to know I still have that ability, it's not dead up there.

I work best when there is a big long list with too many things to do.

If I just pay a bit more attention on a consistent basis I can run my finances and not be run by them.  

I still enjoy coloring.

Chicken really is more boring than sushi.

I still like naps in the afternoon.

Cookies for breakfast is awesome.

I like when Ellie takes a nap in my lap.

Let’s face it.

I just like to make stuff.

I can't help it.

And while I'd like to keep it all contained in one room…

It's clearly an impossible task.

And sewing takes up quite a bit more space than, say, knitting.

Humph.

And then I end up with all this stuff! 

Which, no one ever minded having stuff.

But if I already have this stuff, then I don't want to make more stuff.  Then I'll have double the stuff.

I'll be double stuffed.  (hee hee hee)

Which isn't always so bad. 

So I keep making stuff.

And I really like it.
