Look What I Got!
These wonderful ATCs are from the wonderful Dotee She makes the most beautiful things and I can't tell you how excited I am to get a close up view and to be able to hold them in my little old hands. My son pointed out that I look a tad maniacal in the photo. hehe I also love the tag that she included and it had the sweetest note on the back. Dot is such a giving person and very kind.
It was very rainy and chilly here today. I decided that it called for a big crock of vegetable soup so I started it early this morning and by evening it was so yummy. Soup is always better the next day but we'll never know about this batch because it got eaten up.
I forgot that Nick had rehearsal after school today so when he wasn't waiting for me after school, I remembered but wasn't sure how long he would be staying...so I went to Books-A-Million and browsed the art and craft magazines and books. So many bloggers have books. It's amazing. I thorougly enjoyed looking and was very inspired. I love that you can look at things like that and get your own completely different ideas. It just takes a spark. I finally called Nick's cell phone from the bookstore and found that he'd be a couple more hours, so I drove home and got some sewing done, which was lots of fun. Maybe I'll have something to show tomorrow...a new idea. :)
Maybe, I say, because tomorrow is date day and I also have two articles to edit for the magazine and turn in tomorrow. They were in my mailbox tonight when I checked.
I wrote two articles this morning and submitted them and one sold right away. That was a great way to start my day. I'm so happy to finally be in the mood to write again. I should write whether I'm in the mood or not but I don't usually unless I absolutely have to.
Thanks again Dot! You made this gal very happy.
