i just finished a long post with photos and everything. and then it was gone. poof! so frustrating!
so i’m going to try this again but with just a few random photos to show you a bit of what i’ve been up to!
our neighborhood farmer’s market is the bees knees. for $20, i can get enough flowers to fill 6-7 vases to spread around the house. i love standing at the sink playing with the arrangments. love.
bella is loving this spot in the living room where she looks out of the windows onto the street and front porch all day long. if she’s not here, she’s usually on our bed. totally spoiled, she is 🙂
really loving doing lots of small projects like this one that my mom and i did. this tiered little diddy was made with a large green plate (bottom), a white cake plate (middle), and a glass candle stick glued to the bottom of a cute hot plate (top).
i’m all about little projects at the moment.
and organizing. i never thought getting organized could feel like a day at the spa, but it really really does! the photo above shows my generic five star notebook all spruced up and covered with wrapping paper (pam garrison’s
art via papaya
design) and with nifty little dividing tabs. this notebook is my biz/art lifeline (holds all of my notes, idea, etc, etc) and i’m so happy to look at it now!
i finished unpacking my office today. oh, i can’t wait to show you photos! but while i was at it, i gave my tired old target organizer (another daily lifeline for me) a face lift using a quilt block i got from cindy’s amazing goodie bags at an artful journey
earlier this year.
here it is now:
YAY! using tacky glue, i simply glued the quilt block to my organizer and now i’m loving it all over again. i’m one of those people who absolutely depends on their organizers. i get all excited about starting the new year with new monthly tabs and weekly refills. it makes me very happy.
in other news, i’m so pregnant! with just a a few more weeks left before his arrival and still so much to do to get prepared and ready on the house and biz front, i’m seriously holding out hope baby boy does not arrive early. major fatigue has definitely set in, and so i’m just going with it. i’m taking my time, getting lots of rest, and really enjoying all the slow motion of nesting, getting his room ready, and other small house projects. we’ve only been moved in less than four weeks – hard to believe!
in biz news, i’ve hired an assistant. wooohoooo! she’s awesome and she’ll be running the online shop which will finally reopen in ONE MORE WEEK (give or take a day). if you’d like to know exactly when it reopens, sign up for the newsletter as newsletter subscribers will be notified first. i can’t tell you how relieved i am to finally reopen the shop and get all the new goodies (including 2011 datebooks and calendars!) out to you guys! i’ve missed this part of my biz life and i’m loving getting it up and running again!
also, i’m continuing to take reservations for holiday sponsors for oct/nov/dec. this blog has over 4900 readers per day (totally love my readers – thank you guys!) – lots of opportunity to promote your biz. contact me for all the details at kellyraeroberts[at]gmail[dot]com if you think you might be interested.
