Burning the midnight oil once again...sigh. It wasn't that long ago when I was referred to as Miss "Oh So Efficient." I was on top of my projects. Deadlines were met with days to spare. Most importantly, I could see the surface of my desk. I'm embarrassed to say that those days are gone. And I have no one but myself to blame. My plate is full, brimming, bursting, chockablock...okay, I admit I had to look that one up, but you get the picture. I just have to give in when that creative bug bites with its whirling energy and deadlines are looming.
Last night I was feverishly painting and adding final touches to some sweet new Halloween characters that I hoped to list for the Friday update on Glitter and Grunge. But I realized that some things just can't be rushed. Instead, I'll be offering 5 new Halloween ornaments available for purchase 8.1.08 on Glitter and Grunge. Click here for the link!

Welcome to my world--it seems the busier I get, the more behind I fall.
My philosophy. . .if you can't see the desktop, then it doesn't need to be dusted.
Best wishes to you!!

You were in stealth mode.....and slipped in a took a peek at my blog. Thank you for the kind words! And......Wow.......I bought the artful blogger yesterday because I thought I might get some new tips since I am still kind of new at blogging.......and there you were your field! Even though I have not had the pleasure of seeing your work in person I have always thought it very cleverly creative. Congratulations and many more to come!
