Making Progress Slowly!

I sure am glad I got one of the big stressful projects done. I took Sr. photos of the neighbor kid and his mom ordered a 16 x 20 picture. I was so worried it wouldn’t look nice. I didn’t realize what a stresser that was till it came yesterday along with some massive relief. I think they liked them all and that is what mattered. I was happy with my work. I gave them a great deal and asked if I could use him in my advertising. He said not a problem. Now all I have to do is figure out this order for my niece. For some reason it uploaded all the photos but only found 2, so I need to call the lab this morning and get this figured out. I don’t want to pay again if they got it and end up with 2 orders. I just don’t have the money to eat a 100 dollar order right now.
So I’ve been working on organizing my scrapbooking stuff. This was a huge task I’ll tell ya. I knew I had all this stuff it was just scattered to and fro all over between the dining room and the basement, where I had put up some new shelves to hold it all. Well guess what… uhhmm the new shelves are full and uhh err… all the stuff isn’t put away yet. Not that there is much left but I might have to do some more rolling 3 drawer storage. I was hoping to avoid that but I think I will need one more. I have lots of work left to do, like making labels for the containers and putting away the UFO’s I call them… acronym for UnFinshed Objects!! I think I might put them up here in the big white hutch I got from Amy a few years back. I’m really excited! I can’t wait to get this done. I now have space up here for organizing my sewing stuff and have my sewing machines at my finger tips but also have them put away out of sight!
I think this whole organizing thing will really help me with the liking my home more and not so stressed that someone might stop by. I know this will make my husband feel better about our home too. So far I have been able to keep my computer desk fairly picked up and uncluttered along with the filing cabinet and now the sewing dresser. The next large project I will be tackling is my pictures, which I want to get into photo boxes and labeled so when I sit down to scrap I can just open my boxes and there the photos will be. Right now they are all scattered here there and everywhere, just like the scrapbooking stuff!
I am rather proud of what I have achieved so far even though I have a long way to go I have gotten a good start. I wish my brain was the organizing type. My friends Jayme and Cathy are both wonderfully good at that. I so wish mine worked like that.
Household hint for the day…place a bucket of DampRid under your toilet to keep the sweat from building up on the tank. I have used this DampRid and it really helps and it isn’t too expensive either!
