I am shocked at myself for letting this month pass by without my attention to posting more regularly on this blog. I LOVE blogging and do not want to lose you my faithful followers and friends. Why is every day so busy and hectic? This world is turning too fast for me. In my ongoing efforts to downsize I realized I had an entire very full file cabinet drawer of papers. If Mr. C had seen that drawer I would have a lot of explaining to do. So I emptied it all onto my studio table.
I admit I have been hoarding my Jenny of elefantz Stitchery Club designs. For more information just click the links for each. I had to make a decision and this was what I did. I sorted through all of the papers and kept the most critical pieces like photos and actual design drawings. The rest I had to dispose of. As this photo shows, my save pile is the same size as my throw pile. YAY!!! Mr. C should be much happier. In fact I decided not to use the filing drawer any longer. I put them in plastic sleeves but they are too many for a large three-ring binder and my shelf space is very limited. Think Sherry Think!
I had an empty container that fits perfectly on my shelves. Aha! Now I am happy with my resolve to downsize and eliminate such a stack of paper. For Mr. C is happy because it weighs a lot and when you move weight is what costs the big bucks!
Here is my container on the shelf and all I need to do is label it. I now know exactly where my elefantz designs are...just in case I get the opportunity to stitch.
An update on the house is that we did have two showings. No offers! One person wanted the pond closer to the house. I asked Mr. C if he could move it. LOL Just cannot please everyone!!!
Summer is waning. August is coming to a quick close, We were having wonderful weather and Fall was in the air. Now we are back in triple digits for at least a week. Looks like I will be doing a lot of extra watering. I like to let the trees and plants and flowers and lawn know they can get through the heat with some extra TLC.
Thank you all for the Happy Birthday wishes for both my daughter and myself. We each survived our days. I will continue to celebrate just because I feel like it. After all...at my age I can celebrate as much as I want! Summer Sunshine Smiles...
Prayers for all affected by Harvey and the horrific flooding.
