Plugging Away

There's been a whirlwind of activity here in the studio. I've been busy preparing kits for my upcoming workshops. These are the ones for the library series. At one point, I couldn't even see the top of my desk!

These days, post-it notes are my saving grace. I have a master list written on one of all the things I need to accomplish in the next few weeks, in chronological order. Then I have more lists with each task broken down into smaller steps. I have all of them stuck to the cabinet door of my computer desk and I am crossing things off as I go. Seriously, it's the only way to keep track of what my work day needs to look like.

The fun part of my day right now is the trip to the post office. I have several packages I am keeping an eye out for and every day I open the box with great anticipation. I ordered some polymer clay tools for an online class I am taking that should be here soon. There is some new rubber on its way from Paper Artsy for design work. I have two packages coming for the Valentine's exchange I am hosting. (This year's exchange will be starting soon so check back in a few days!) I am sure there are a few things I am forgetting. I love getting mail so I look forward to my daily trips to the post office.

I just want to take a moment to acknowledge everyone whose taken the time to comment or send me private emails with words of congratulations, encouragement and support about my upcoming appearance on Breakfast Television. It's really wonderful to know folks are excited for me and I appreciate that you took the time to tell me so. Thank you so much!

I just found your blog, Lelainia, courtesy of my sister, Dianne, in Montreal. Great stuff!!
I am local and will try to catch your TV special.
I'd love to subscribe to feeds on your blog but that doesn't seem to be working. Is that something you plan to change?

Your packages of kits are just wonderful. As a student I could al;most go home after receiving them, feeling I got my money's worth!
