Time is flying by !

I'll keep this short as it's midnight here on the coast and I worked all day and can hardly keep my eyes open. 

It's been a busy couple of weeks.  Stock is in the store for the open houses and now I can work on my personal cards, journals and ATC swaps.  The travelling journal swap is good but for some reason the journals seem to be stranded somewhere for months and then I get three of them all at once.  It can be kind of overwhelming and takes up more time than if they were coming in a couple of weeks apart.  However, I guess that can work out to one's advantage if you can get your creative mojo going.

I'm also working on a couple of journals for a journal partner.  This has turned into a slow old slog!  I'm sure H thinks I've fallen off the face of the earth.  I came up with a design for one of the journal pages for her and I just cannot make it come together.  I've redone it 3 times - no exaggeration - I hate it !  I'd normally tear it out and start over but her work is on the other side so now I have to live with my ugly mess!  Ugh!

Anyway, this is the first weekend in several weeks when I'm not on a very tight deadline to get something work related completed.  I'm getting my hair done tomorrow and then plan to spend the day working on the journals.  I really need to get H's out to her and then work on the other projects I have in the hopper.  Things I need to do but things that I also want to do because they're enjoyable and relaxing.

Not quite ready to start counting the sleeps til Palm Springs but that is coming fast as well, with only about 14 weeks until I hit paradise.  Not counting....just saying!

Gotta run -  caio !
