Is it Really Summer?
Many Northern Illinoisans are asking themselves that very question...it's only 61 degrees here...and it's rainy...and there are supposed to be thunderstorms coming, but at that temp, I don't know how.
So my trip to the Chicago suburbs yesterday was a nice day out. I spent time at the Archivers store and managed to get quite a bit of work done on some projects for my Etsy store. Of course, the first hour was spent shopping. I managed to come home with lots of decorative papers, some Bazzill Basics cardstock, althought the store informed me that they will not be stocking that brand any longer, but she couldn't tell me what brand they would have in the future. I also brought home a bunch of new clear stamps, a Penny Black wood-mount Christmas Ornament stamp that I got for 75% off and some storage solutions for my clear stamps. So all in all, a very good day!
As for Paul's interview, time will tell. But for now he is happy being a merchandising manager for Barnes & Noble. He's a book hound, so he makes a great bookseller.
So how has your day been? I have been multi-tasking today. I am working on getting some of those stamps organized in my new cases, working on cards for Etsy and taking care of basic household chores. Do you find it difficult to balance your creative time with everyday life? I would encourage you to take what time you can, even if it's just a little bit and do something creative. I would love to hear what you did today!
