Recovered, but now catching up and cleaning up with some Candy

Howdy  - well we are finally feeling recovered from our first antique show, but now in a bit of a panic. You see... we sold some of our favorite items in our booth and now we are on the hunt for more key goodies for our next show in a little more than two weeks.

This afternoon I realized that it was actually Wednesday and I had not been on to blog. I really had intended to do a bit of crafting and blogging by now really! But you see I have just a bit of an issue....

You see I got a new antique cabinet this past weekend :0) - I'll show it off on Sunday once it is all tidy and in its place. But in order to get it in my craft room, I had to take out a piece. We decided that the Texas Courthouse Desk that we just got a little while ago was the best to go. It wasn't working out well for me to use with the slanted desk top. And I couldn't put my die cutter on it or the doors would not open. So it will go off to be sold to someone else to love. Yes, little sad... but not when I found the piece I did. But back to why I haven't crafted. You see I had already filled the other cabinet. And in a rush to get it out and the new one in while we had some help (the new piece is HUGE and HEAVY!) all of that "stuff" just came flying out and stacked everywhere.

So I have NO where to craft, not even a little corner to color, and if I could find a corner... I can't find my Copics! LOL So I am going work on cleaning up all of that the next couple of days and then I can craft over the weekend.

But while moving things around I found a few things and thought... I need to share these with someone. So I added some really gorgeous ribbons, a few stamps and have put together a little Candy for one of you wonderful readers - You have stuck it out with me while I have been just a tad on the nuts side the past few weeks. Its ok.. I really was flipping out and a bit nuts we can say that honestly.


So whats in this pile? 
Three retired Sugar Nellie - Rachel Anne Miller stamps
A Fiskar's Cocoa Mug punch, brand new!
A Sarah Kay Shepherd Stamp
A Heltz Cuppleditch Surprise Stamp
And a bunch of my favorite woven lace Ribbon! 


So the details - 

I'll ship world wide, and so we don't have to wait too long, how about if we just run this until next Wednesday? On the 31st I'll pop on at some point during the day and announce a winner that has commented on this post.  No other requirements. I just want to share with someone that is a reader and been there checking on me to make sure I am still here :0) 

Ok... I am going to go and dive into that pile and start sorting.... Thanks so much for visiting me :0) 

HUGS and

I was wondering where you were! You have wonderful furniture to play with but I can't imagine switching and getting it all back in order. Good luck to you! Can't wait to see!!!

I'm still a reader and still checking in on how you are, even if I don't comment each time. Good luck reorganizing, the best part to that is that you may find some hidden treasures you already forgot you had, lol.

can't wait to see the new desk when you finally get it in. I am swapping out rooms (I need more space) so my crafting room and yours are twinkies! Take care and don't over do!

You're life is so full and rich with wonderful animals and hobbies, we are just lucky to get glimpses of all your goings on and craziness lol! It's fun but you certainly aren't tied to the blog that should be fun too :). Thanks for keeping us updated - glad you got a new and better desk!

teepee said...

Michelle - we must all give a little grace here and there, and we know that you've been busy getting your little booth together, so we'll wait to see what you post. We're here, whether or not you blog EVERY day or not. Hugs to you.

Rufus said...

You've earned a break. Plus you and hubby have an exciting new business adventure to work on.We're all good and rooting for you!

Maryann said...

Glad to hear the show went soo well for you, and sorry to hear, you have to let that desk go, as it was really cool, but I also understand, if it doesn´t work well, then it´s better to swap it with something that actually does work better, and it shouldn´t be a problem to find a good home for the Texas desk, that´s for sure.
Thanks so much for the chance to win some great candy here too, I´ll cross my fingers, that I´ll be lucky this time LOL.
I´ll really look forward to see your room, when all this is back in order, as I´ve really missed you and your space here the last while. I so enjoyed it, when we got a bit every week.

lol Michelle my desk looks like yours all the time. I just don't have room to put everything since I only live in a 2 1/2 room apartment. But no matter what I still make a space to create and still keep buying :)

Enjoy
:)

PS The candy looks good :)

I don't talk much but I love your animal crackers. And your beautiful cards are so great. I'm glad the show went so well. Great candy too!

Pam Steffenhagen said...

I love to read your blog. I love both the cards and the antiques. We have similar interests! Can't wait to see the new find!!!

Nikki said...

Ohh look at your desk it's so full of fun stuff happy hunting on your copics :) Loving that cabinet on your desk who doesn't love a good antique :)

Melissa H said...

I love following your blog and I check it everyday. Tuco's post was too cute.

Helen said...

Hi Michelle, I thought Tuco had taken over your computer, as he really enjoyed himself at it last weekend. Glad to hear that you have recovered from your great booth show. Hope you will find new items to sell at the next stop. I know this problem; I also need a new drawer to put in all my crafting stuff, when I open the doors the floor looks like your desk. Hope you will be able to find time to put everything in your new cabinet and craft over the weekend. Just let Tuco do the animal crackers and you have some time left ;-) Big hugs, Helen

Niki said...

Glad your show went well. Sounds like a great kick off to a new business venture. I can hardly wait to see your new desk.

Wonderful blog candy, hope I win. The punch is just too cute!

Love the Animal Crackers,

Niki

I just wanted to say tha your blog is the one I go to first on Saturdays as I always get a kick out of all your animals.
I love your crafting style and have added several of your cards to my favorites.
Thanks for all your inspiration!

Nicole K/GothamGal said...

I've been following you for years, and I've missed you lately--love hearing the antique and animal updates. Hoping you get to create soon!

Mette said...

OMG - love the sorting table in the post further up :). Been following you and your animal antics for some years now and it's always a good laugh.
Could seriously do with a good tidy up myself but have to wait till my shoulder is healed.

Hugs, Mette

"Oh my word!" I said out loud to myself when I saw your desk, how much lovely crafty stuff! It's fantastic that you sold so many antiques that you need to go buy more! I'm delighted you and hubby did well and that the 'antiques side' of your lives has started so successfully. You both deserve it.
