Do you do your crafts in season, ahead of season or after season when you have been inspired?  Having been in the field for a few years now and working on assignment/publications/ manufacturers  It almost feels like the seasons run together.  I have in the last week worked on Christmas and fall.  I also have some general crafting projects in the works.  They are mostly home decor and easy gift type projects.  I have not done any scrapping lately and I am really beginning to miss it.  Yes, I am still taking the pictures but I am falling slowly behind.  We head to Wilmington on Sunday for about 6 weeks.  Hopefully some of that time can be used to catch up.  Wait… what am I thinking?  How in the world will I pack my entire craft room?  Do you think Gary will let me rent a UHAUL jsut for suppies? I guess I better get busy planning and packing so I can fit the stuff into one rubbermaid tote.  EEK

This is a little decorative tote.  I used Frances Meyer Products.  Not sure what I am going to do with it.  Maybe I can find a spot in the new place???

    Niki, Great blog! Now I will be able to keep up with that move to the sunny south! North Carolina is just beautiful, and I know you’ll enjoy living there. Mountains and ocean…what more could a girl want?

    Oops! Don’t know if my name will come through with the wrong spelling. I’m not really that stupid. I do have an excuse though. I am an artist, not a typist.
    Candice (correct spelling!:))
