It's A Start

The craft area.....
This is an old bulletin board that I covered in fabric just like Patti did!! I added a pocket to mine so that I can keep Sharpies or pencils in it. I bet you are a bit confused by the clown pic there on the board since you are all very aware of my LOATHING of clowns. That is M2 and I love that photo of her. That was from when she hid in my office in her clown suit on my b-day. ~grins~ I am so loved.

And my JOY letters. Joy is my favorite word. I lose my joy all of the time. I just lay it down and walk off. I think I am beginning to find it again as I dig out from under things. Finding my joy but still have not found that silly rent check!
I bought simple wooden letters and covered them with paper. I used Mod Podge to get it all to stick. On the letter J is the word *imagine* and on the letter Y is the word *bloom*.

5. Cash

13. You
So...what are you up to today?


  1. loved this peek into your life - the board is lovely and those letters J O Y - wow!

    me? well today is Tottis' last day of living with us. We had a party last night - today she's been doing last minute sewing for me - putting off the packing I think - and I've been wandering around the house. I have been tidying - mostly because I too am looking for things. I found my tax card HALLELUJAH - and now my insurance papers so I can send those off. Still lots to decluter but it's been a good way to spend the day and avoid writing an assignment for seminary (grin)

    I am so thankful for Tottis having lived her for the past six months - a sister to me cum surrogate daughter and an awesom big sister to DD. Oh we'll miss her - we've loved having her as part of our family 24/7

    thanks for asking!

  2. El Jefe and I are off on a Road Trip! I'm afraid it's too early for bluebonnets, though.

    We're in Austin today for a dinner honoring one of his clients at the Texas Historical Museum--which should be really cool. Then we're meeting up with friends for tours of some museums in Hillsboro and Ft. Worth before heading home Sunday.

    Hope you have a great weekend, too!

  3. Mindy, your craft area looks great! And, you bring us so much joy by just being you.

    Me? Today? I took 1/2 a day off. My husband was in town so I met him for lunch (real Texas b-b-q - yum). Then I took some donations to the thrift store. Now I'm taking a break from cleaning my apartment. I even cleaned RT's room - that took most of the afternoon. And, I'm with you on the magic erasers; they're great for cleaning the bathroom.

  4. Hey! I left a comment here this morning! @#!$%! you Blogger!

    Anyway, LOL at your Joy-ful wit.

    Today I worked for rich guy, organizing his money and bills. Then picked up Wonderboy. After his homework is done, delightful child stuff shall begin.

  5. What a lovely board and craft area!!

    I too am thankful for Sharpies. What did we ever do without them???

  6. I love your new craft area, and I wish you many joyful hours of crafting :)
