Mental Health Day

Yesterday, I woke up with a sore throat and just had no energy. So I took a mental health day (I almost never do this) so I could wrap up some of my personal projects and try to regain some equilibrium.

I spent a good part of the morning on the phone following up on various orders I'd placed for supplies. I should receive the cushion, wood, and ink this week.

Went to the copy center and had 15 catalogs copied & bound. Not happy with the weight of the paper or with the color of the back coverstock. I wanted kind of a deep coral/pink, but ended up with more of a red. So I think for the next batch, I will supply the coverstock and will request heavier paper. Still, it's progress.

Stopped by Cat's Craft Cupboard to chat about 1st assignments for the design team. Started to fill up a box of things that will be included in the starter kits. She found the birdhouses, so that's a project we'll definitely be doing soon!

I made lots of samples over the last few days and have been posting them online at Twopeasinabucket and Self-Addressed. Response seems to be good so far. Really enjoying my April Self-Addressed kit. It's just the right thing for pulling the samples together quickly. I'm so glad I've been stockpiling all that yummy paper!

Sent enlarged versions of the some of the new images to my mom. She's going to try to make pillows or stuffed animals out of them. Can't wait to see how that turns out!

Had some problems updating my web site on Monday night, so if you were there and saw broken images in the gallery, just hit your "refresh" button and all should be resolved now. There are some adorable new samples from Cathy there now.
