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.


  1. Deadlines are good. That's the only thing that keeps me on track these days.

    Sounds lille a big show in March. I'm glad you are particating.

    Off to check out those blogs you suggested.
