Beware of potholes in the road ahead.
I know I've said it many times....I'm a procrastinator. Getting projects to completion has always been a problem for me. Would you believe I made these earrings before Christmas and then waited a whole month to take pictures of them, but still haven't listed them in my Etsy shop even though another month has passed?
Suddenly I have a new challenge ahead. I found out about what looks like a nice-sized handmade craft and vintage goods show taking place in Arlington on March 31. In fact, I found out about it on the last day for submitting applications. I didn't have time to even think about it. I just knew I wanted to do a show beyond the two church bazaars I've participated in, so I emailed the application right then and there. Within a few hours I got word that my application had been accepted. Now I seriously need to sit down and make some more jewelry. I have 38 pieces available, including those earrings up there. That might be enough, since I certainly don't expect to sell it all in one day, but a little more variety certainly can't hurt.
Looming deadlines are good, right? I've got the Keno group coming here three weeks from today. I've got to get a few house things finished beyond the one big project I completed before my book club met here a couple of weeks ago. That project is something I've been meaning to blog about, too. I did take a few pictures, but mainly sort of midway through the process, so I need to take more. I need to have blogging deadlines. I'm sure other bloggers set deadlines for themselves. Don't they?
Speaking of other bloggers, I added a couple of new ones to my blog roll over there to the right. Check out Young House Love and Teal & Lime if you want to see some inspired and inspiring home design projects. If I ever get that post written about my big project, you'll see just how inspiring they can be.
