Daily Index Cards

I just wanted to let you know that I am still doing the "daily" index cards. Just don't look up the definition of "daily" in the dictionary if you still want to be my friend.

Yes, I do realize that the index card in the photo above is made with markers and not the watercolor paints or the marker shown in the picture. I'd show you my artistic license if I had one.

I bought some colored index cards at the back to school sale. The blank ones are in the front and the daily cards are in the back of the box. I've added more tabs because I like the way they look in the box.

I've kept collaging [apparently this word is not in the dictionary either] more things to the outside of the box. These colorful flowers cut out of a magazine make me happy.

15 Minutes to Stitch: Week 43

This week, I spent my time turning my living room / dining room back to a sewing room. I also cut down some more scraps for the courthouse steps.  It doesn't seem very productive overall but it will help in the future.  I realized that these supplies that are being moved back downstairs need a more permanent space in the Cave of Wonders upstairs. More like a vacation home and less begging for a space on the floor. I've done a lot of work in the upstairs bedrooms this summer, but that process will continue for the rest of the year.

It could be a full time job cleaning out, sorting, etc. I think it sounds like you made a lot of progress this year.

Cutting and other prep work for projects takes a LOT of time. I'm prepping for several projects and sometimes it feels like I haven't gotten anything done.

Fun postcard, a touch of the tropical as we head into winter? Hope you get all your spaces reorganized

Reorganizing is hard work. But does feel good when you get to the end.

This post made me laugh so many times! I promise not to look up daily and now I want to make a fake driver's license that says Artistic License!

It looks to me like your success rate is pretty high!
