For some reason I have been a bit remiss in doing my normal spring cleaning...I have planted most all the plants in their prospective areas and have spruced up the outside on the most part...but I have been totally "slacking" and I'm just dragging on the whole inside of the house "spring cleaning" prospect...FINALLY I think the bug has bitten me ( or was that a mosquito?)...I've spent a good portion of this weekend getting some much needed things cleaned up...starting with bathing the dogs ( I do this most every week or so but sometimes...it just takes me a lot to go there)...then deep, deep cleaning the dogs sleeping quarters...yuck!! aka...the utility room...my vehicle...and now some closets and drawers...not to mention some deep cleaning in the "high traffic" areas...so lots of dusting, mopping, vacuming...some major deep cleaning going on here! I clean every week...but deep cleaning...hmmmm...not so much until the spring/summer and then the fall/winter months!! Hopefully, this momentum will just keep growing over the coming weeks...but I'm afraid it's going to stop for a while because of my friends sons wedding...and you know I have to help out with THAT...yep...any excuse not to spring clean...I knew that was going to happen!
For me sometimes it just takes getting something new or re-arranging a room to get me JUMP STARTED...One of the things that has inspired me to "get with it" this past week is getting these....some really cool pictures of old letters that my daughter sells on ETSY...I decided I wanted something clever to hang in my craft room! Am I the only one out here that gets excited and then does a total re-do when I find something like this??...I mean seriously I am going to re-do my entire sewing room...b/c of these letters...but I never need an excuse to re-do something and my craft/sewing room is in DIRE need of a re-do...so it is great timing that I got these...I happen to LOVE them and of course I love the artist/photographer a little bit, too!! A friend of mine did the whole take on the word "sew" in her sewing room years ago, I've decide to "borrow" her idea and frame these babies and hang them up to enjoy every day!!! I love words in a room and my craft room is so eclectic...I thought I would do the whole "sew" thing in there to liven it up...isn't this just the most clever idea!!!! I can say that b/c I did not come up with this idea...but I love it none the less...and I am SEW using it!!
For a look at some of the other letters and word phrases that my daughter sells....you can check her out at her ETSY site

Also, I want to express my heartfelt "THANKS" to Kim at TodaysCreativeBlogspot....she is such a doll as many of you know...she so graciously featured Jackie's website and new business venture on her site a week or so ago (I would have thanked her sooner...but I had this whole Mr. Blog issue going on)....my daughter was elated...she called me the very day...I think the very minute that she saw it on Kim's site...So thank you, thank you, thank you Kim...for being such an advocate for young ladies getting starting in a new venture or for anyone who is blessed with the creative gene...she really does an awesome job in not only promoting new talent and keeping up with the latest fun things...she is just the most awesome lady...she is funny, talented and very dedicated to her family and she LOVES life...I think she is my long lost baby sister...I love her...you can check her out if you haven't yet...she is at www.todayscreativeblog.blogspot.com or her personel blog at www.scrap-to-my-lu.blogspot.com
Hope you are all having a great weekend...and I hope that I am able to finish up my spring cleaning before summer or fall rolls around...I REALLY have lots to do...not only cleaning...but re-organizing and just getting rid of a lot of things. My desire is when our new home is complete (which has not started quite yet...I'll update that later)that I will have everything done to this home that is needed...and I will just have to mop, vacumn and dust...then put her on the market....hey! a girl can "DREAM" can't she...OH!! by the way...that is a word my daughter sells on ETSY..."DREAM"...it is so cool...check it out.
