This last weekend I set a goal for myself to get 2 rooms cleaned up- top to bottom- and set out a little fall decor. I did it! I now have a shining clean bathroom and dining room. Here is some of my fall decor :)
I even finally framed my treasured print from my friend Zlatica at http://pupaart.blogspot.com/ . Isn't it beautiful? I plan to hang some other things with it, just need to figure out what still. Thank you again Zlatica- everytime I look at this picture it makes me smile.
After I cleaned up those 2 rooms I went upstairs to clean my craft room. I decided that the craft room clean up is a goal for the MONTH of October....it's a mess! I've just taken things out and left them out- I've brought things upstairs to put away, but just pitched it in this room instead :( I can't even see the surface of the desk! So, the craft room will be worked on a little bit each day after work. Here's a sneak peek of the mess ahead of me-I'm a bit ashamed of myself:
Last week I received a couple of packages that I'd like to share with you . The first package was from my sweet friend Doreen from http://doreensminiatures.blogspot.com/ . This was a get well wishes package- each item has a special little note with it and it touched my heart so much I had tears in my eyes as I opened each package. Thank you so much Doreen- this meant so much to me- I'm so glad you are my friend ♥ I'm keeping the notes to myself- I think I'm going to paste them into my art journal- but take a look at the sweet things Doreen sent to me. I love all of it! I have it all sitting on my side table right now to remind me what wonderful and supportive friends blogging has brought to me.
http://sominiprojects.blogspot.com from a flower swap we did. Wanda-I LOVE everything you sent! Wanda sent me a large bag of flower heads that I forgot to take a picture of- the bag is huge! Wanda also sent me all of the following fabulous flowers- I feel like I cheated her on my end! I can't wait to be able to use all of these in my rooftop garden! For now they are also sitting on my side table so I can have lots of lovely things to look at :) Take a look at what Wanda made and sent to me:
