Yeah... I have no clue if it's a real word, but it fits how I feel at the moment so... deal with it.
With the 'In The Pink' out in the open and just a few late additions to do with that on occasion now, My 'to-do' list has been knocked all the way down to a few over due projects and the blogs to accompany them
- Need to finish my fiberwire piece that I started AGES ago, then ended up getting waylaid by a certain project ;) Sorry, Marla - I DID make something with some of it, and I WILL finish it shortly and share!
- Need to do a blog piece on some fabulous lampwork beads and their creator... I keep putting it off because I wanted to use a couple of them first ... but things kept getting in the way >.<
- Need to finish reorganizing my workspace... again. I'm getting there, though... slowly but surely! It's giving me time to discover what isn't working before I get it all in place... the little baggies in the drawer that I thought would be perfect, keep getting caught when I open the drawers... need to figure a way around that...
- Need to design, make, photograph and mail my earrings for my partner in the 'Mismatched ArtBead Earring Swap' hosted by Diana of Suburban Girl Studio . This is actually now first on my list, since the mailing deadline is September 29th. I have a definite idea for my design, but don't seem to be able to find the bead I want in my stash... If I can't find it in the next day or so, I'll have to alter my design idea :(
... and I need to find the little note book I wrote my full 'to-do' list in... I seemed to have misplaced it while clearing my desk off on Friday... >.< I have my little design/project/password note book here... and the new little notebook that I just found the other day that has my 'to mail' list -all the goodies from this month's giveaways so far. The items themselves are in little baggies in a special drawer with the addresses taped to them, and the list is to remind me I haven't mailed them yet. I decided to hold them in case any of the winners won more than once ;)
Oh, and THAT brings me to the reason I decided to write this lol
For the record, I DID draw winners for the button earrings and the pendant. I did them the same way I did the sock draw... I assigned each name a number, wrote them out on paper, folded them and shook them up... then tossed them and the one the cat went for first, won :)
But no, I'm not going to tell you who won either of them :) You see, I don't NEED to contact them for the addresses ... both winners had won things from me previously, so I already HAVE their address.... it just took me forever of digging through emails to find them.. but I HAVE them :D So I decided I'll just keep my mouth shut and let that little packet suddenly appearing in your mailboxes be notice enough ;)
Of course, that means I need to toss up a new giveaway. I just lucked out and found a great deal on some beads.. so of course I'm going to share some of them... But I'm not in the mood to play with my camera right now. I'm sick, my throat feels like I swallowed sandpaper, and my nose has become a very leaky faucet - I'm on the verge of wedging tissue into it just so I can finish a paragraph without needing to stop to blow and sanitize >.<
.. where was I ..? Oh right... but don't worry, I'll toss those beads up next time. In the mean time, I'll toss up one that I already have a picture for :)
Three bundles of faux suede cording :) And heck, I'll even toss in a little surprise to go along with them... maybe a little mini bead bundle, or some clasps or findings... or maybe a pendant...
So... to enter.. hmm...
I know.. I feel like crap .. cheer me up :) Post a joke or funny story for me. I'll do a random draw for the cord, but if one of your posts REALLY cracks me up, I'll send that person a special something too :)
