The Art Of.....

The art of doing something and doing nothing. The art of doing everything and accomplishing nothing. That has been me for the past few months. I moved into a new home this past November, the 15th to be exact and all I've managed to do is basically nothing.

I know I shouldn't be hard on myself, moving is such a large chore, but I don't have any help. Sure there are the kids, they get in the way. Then there's the man and he's in the way too.

Everybody wants to help but no one understands, I don't have a clue. I did do the most important things, I got the bedroom together the first night and slept like a baby, that's when I knew I was home.

I got the kitchen pretty much together, Thanksgiving coming, I had to cook but I'm still trying to figure out where everything goes or should be. The plates, china and seasonings were easy, but what's up with the pots. Some would say I need to downsize, that is until dinner time.

Here's a pic of my new home...

We love the peace and the quiet and the neighbors are nice and the schools are great. The kids actually get up to go without alarms. Now if I could only get some order and back into my creative routine that would be great.

I decided to take a break today from arranging a house, which is all in my mind and join my friends and collegues on Etsy, I needed to catch up and reach out. Get back in the swing of things.

Here are a few of the great things I found and want to share. These are great cards from a very talented person, ones I'd buy and keep, couldn't give away, take a look and please visit her shop for more great items. These are just a few of my favorites by Kitty Kat Kards and just in time for Valentine's Day. Shop early.

If you're in the mood for some delicious soaps Bubbles Up By Bethie B is the place to go. Her soaps will make you hungry for more and I find the humor is teasing the kids and some adults too.

My late husband would have been a sucker for these....and ooohhhhhh to wash out the kids mouths : ), yes we had fun. We had a sense of humor, he believed in laughter and play.

I'll try not to stay away so long, now that I've moved and pretty much settled in, I'll be sharing a little more.

This, I found time to do while sitting in a chair in my bedroom, watching nice!

You know you can find me at New Day Crochet.

Love You Guys, be good and please have a Joyous New Year everyday. Remember what ever it is, ' This too, shall past.'

Fond Regards,

Hi Sherryl, I know the feeling of moving to a new place and feeling out of sorts and disoriented, not knowing what to do next, when you still have so much to do to get the house in order.
Hope your new house is feeling more and more like home.

Thx, Joan. It's coming, but it's working alone. I stand I look and I look some more.
