I’ve come to the realization that I’ve missed my calling in life – that of a juggler! Remember those variety shows from the 60’s where someone would come out and start throwing balls, or bowling pin like things around, adding more numbers to the routine, throwing things up higher, yada yada yada??? I never liked to watch those acts – thought they were boring.
BUT – that seems to describe my life! I’m going between activities such as school and my paper crafting business, last night we threw in the start of Advent services at our church where I’m the organist, today I have a Stamp n Sip group coming, and a Christmas Tag class is right around the corner. In the next two days I will be in Columbia, MO and Ottumwa, Iowa and Kansas City, MO and there is no easy way to do that, but we will get it done! I keep mentally tossing activities higher in the air and praying I’m able to hold it all together. If you are truthful with yourself, I bet many of you feel the same way as me!!!
I’m able to keep my sanity though with a steady routine and schedule. Everything has a purpose. My Monday FB Lives are my projects for my blog post. The projects from the Tuesday night FB Lives with my upline Pam also become a blog post. Projects from my Stamp n Sip groups can be carried over to class offerings, and the treatbox from the FB Live is for Stamp n Sip, etc. – it all works together as long as no one throws a monkey wrench into my plan of action. And, yes, that does happen so I learn to pivot and adjust with hopefully minimal ranting and cussing! Haven’t we all learned to do so during the COVID crisis???
Pam’s Beautiful Gift Box from our FB Live!
So for today’s post I’m going to share two projects from the FB Live on Tuesday night with Pam. All directions and measurements are included in the FB posts. Love the color combination of Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler, and Evening Evergreen!
Measurements and Directions are on our FB Group Page – Want to Join Us???
This is a private group page we started at the start of COVID and we continue to do weekly lives. Would you like to be part of this group??? Click on the link below to ask to join! We would love to have you join us!!!!
Cutest Treat Box CASED from Ronda Wade and her Team!
One of my projects from the FB Live is actually a small gift I made for my Stamp n Sip groups. I completely CASED it from a pillow gift I received with one of Ronda Wade’s conventions (by totally deconstructing and tearing, and measuring), but since we are doing a Sugar Cookie Sampler tonight at Stamp n Sip using the same suite in the catalog it was perfect to share, and very easy to reproduce.
I do look forward to the time when life slows down next year without school, but I will continue to pack my days with activities – it’s just the way I am. Thank goodness for calendars, schedules, and planning to keep everything going. And if I have too much time on my hands, maybe I’ll learn to take up juggling for real!!! NOT!!!! LOL
Until next time, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!
