HAPPY NEW YEAR from chilly north Texas. I just got some new stamps from Simon Says (from the Shop Hop) so I might be doing some stamping until midnight.

Happy New Year!!!

I just got home from a week-long trip to visit family for Christmas so I think I will be staying in tonight. Jammies, movies and some craft time are sounding pretty good right now. Hope you all have a happy and safe evening tonight and all the best in 2013!

KJ says she only photographed one side of her room.
I went around three walls...the fourth is a closet. You notice any pics of the closet??? Or in front of the closet doors??? Another photo trick is moving all the clutter, taking a pic, and moving it all back. Plus, I scrounged my photo folders for pics of when things were neater in one place or another, so that I could have "the best picture".

Ya just gotta learn the tricks! LOL!

Sorry - you can't fool me. You have a gorgeous, neat, wonderfully organized space. Even with those tricks my spaces wouldn't look like much. Things are spread throughout the house in at least 4 rooms on card tables, metal folding tables, typewriter stands, boxes, etc. Funny thing about it - I can usually find what I'm looking for, at least the stuff that I use regularly. And I do try to put it back in the same place.

Ha! I DID fool you! I have a bit too much of my dad's packrat tendencies...and a bit too much procrastination for my own good.

But thank you for thinking it is gorgeous and neat and wonderfully organized! Well, it IS organized, I'll grant you that one! LOL!

My whole family was/is pack rats from my parents to me to my daughter. And my daughter and I are in competition for the title of Procrastination Queen. In fact, I'm in the process of procrastinating at this very moment!

In order to shoot the inside of my closet, I'd have to move what's OUTSIDE the closet out from in front of the doors. Admittedly, this is temporary stuff since it's my files for prepping the class I'm teaching spring semester, and they won't be there forever.

Then I'd have to remove the clutter that's on the floor in front of the nicely organized boxes. I guess I could manage to do that...

THEN I could take a picture! Heehee!

Hey, I've got a closet like that! Sometimes I can only open the door partway and stretch my arm inside to find something. Actually that closet is fairly well organized and even indexed as I have a list on the computer of what's in the various boxes. It's a shallow closet packed floor to ceiling. But it still isn't much to look at.

I was wondering the same thing. Glad to see that I didn't miss anything...they just haven't had the chance to get to us yet, I am guessing.

Oh wow, I'm glad it's not just me. I ordered an ink pad organizer from the sponsor who emailed me the winning code, and it hasn't come in yet. I'm thinking it's been well over a month now. I'm trying to stay positive and think well maybe they had to go cut the wood and assemble the thing from scratch?

Rotten news today; my mom's breast cancer has spread into her spine. She's been having pain the last few weeks and when they finally xrayed her they found a fractured vertebrae. Stinkin' cancer. On a positive note her wound from her failed implant from last spring has FINALLY healed and she was able to head back to her water aerobics class today.

Oh Gail - I'm so sorry! Cancer sucks. I will remember your mom in prayer.

I bet she was delighted to go back to water aerobics. I did water aerobics for years with a fabulous bunch of older ladies -- I loved them to pieces. At the time, we were discovering that my own mother had significant dementia -- those ladies took over mothering me at a time I really needed it. Those ladies guided me through parenting my own kids and dealing with aging parents. They were the bomb! My point is - that class was so tight knit - I'm hoping your mom's is also. The support is terrific.

Her group of ladies has been great and they've seen each other through lots of things! I also had a chance to water walk for a few years with a fun group of older ladies....they were great support for each other too! Thanks for your prayers.

Thanks everyone. Mom had a brain MRI and some other lab tests etc and everything came back with no signs of further metastasis. She will start shots to regrow the bone (which also helps knock out the cancer I think) and a couple of weeks of radiation treatments. My mom is a strong believer and is handling it all with grace and strength; I just hope that this is the last setback in a long series of them.

Jennifer, So sorry that you've had so many adverse effects from the radiation. Sometimes I think the treatment is as bad as the disease itself. Hope your body quickly recovers and repairs from all the trauma. Praying for you today!
Thanks for your prayers for my mom and all the rest of us. I'll admit that I was steeling myself for more bad news as at every previous juncture she has had a worst case scenario turn up. I was pleasantly surprised when she got the news about no other metastasis.

after my radiation treatments finished, it took me forever to heal from the horrible burns. now I have developed radiation poisoning, so am trying to recover from that. my poor dr. was almost as upset giving me the news last week as when he first gave me my cancer diagnosis. I've lost 4 or 5 teeth in the past 2 weeks alone. it's a long, long road, but am so thankful for the amazing people who have been cheering me along. thank you to each of you!

anyhow, I received quite the lovely surprise to discover I had won a prize afterall! last time I had looked at the list, which I confess was toward the beginning of the giveaways, my name wasn't on it. thank you so much to Lydia, all of the fab sponsors, EACH of you, and Copic. I'm excited for my markers to arrive so I can play (and HOPEFULLY get better!!!!) in 2013!

may each of you find that this year is overflowing with blessings and joy!
Oh Jennifer! So sorry for all the tough things you are going through! (((hugs)))

Thanks for your prayers for my mom and all the rest of us. I'll admit that I was steeling myself for more bad news as at every previous juncture she has had a worst case scenario turn up. I was pleasantly surprised when she got the news about no other metastasis.
I am glad there was a little bit of good news for your mom!

Looks like fun!!! Every time I see "Rubber cafe" my heart jumps and I think, "Oh someone has received news and then I realize it's RUBBER not "Gourmet Rubber Stamps".

Is that a fence die? You will love it! I just used a fence die today. Oooohh So cute!
