Where have I been????

dups & vintage ephemera 059

The answer to this question is easy… facebook.  Yes, it seems that I’ve succumbed to the convenience of seeing what everyone is up to with the click of a button!   Must. get. back. to. my. icandy… I’ve missed it terribly.

Things here have been somewhat busy over the last few weeks.  School is back in session~ always a sad time for me.  I keep asking myself and wondering, where did our summer go??  I’m getting to be an old fart… time is passing  by too quickly! 

We  managed to have a yard sale last week and actually did pretty well selling a few knick-knacks and household items.  The fun started about 7 a.m. and we could only hold out until about 11 because of the HeAt!!  I’m hoping to have another one very soon, Lord knows that I have plenty to get rid of!  *hehe * ;)  Borderline hoarder?  Organized chaos!  Hopefully, I’ll have one before next week,  thinking maybe on Friday??? :)   Let’s hope that it cools down just a little.

I’ve been keeping busy at the library and have also been trying to fit a bit of creative time in here and there.  Speaking of creative… WOW!!!  The downtown shops are already decorating for Halloween and this is REALLY getting me in the mood for the holidays and the crisp, autumn air.  I’m so looking forward to “sweatshirt” weather because we’ve all had such a hot summer!!  :)  Yesterday, I started making spooky stuff…Eeeeek!   I’ll post photos soon. 

I am so honored and extremely excited about something that I don’t even know very much about yet!!!   :)  Not sure of  all of the details~~ I’ve been told that Atchison is hoping to host an Art Walk and I have been asked to participate if it all works out!!!!  Many thanks to Karen and Melissa for approaching me about this exciting event!!!  I will keep you all posted as soon as I know more information.   It’s not supposed to be until the end of next April, so I’ll have plenty of time to prepare.  HA!!!  This, coming from the world’s greatest procrastinator??!!  ;)  I’d better get my rump in gear, huh?  Just in case…

Thanks so much to all of my bloggy friends for putting up with me, I have been such a lazy blogger lately.  I sure do hope that everyone is doing well… and keeping COOL!  ;)  Let me know how you are!

Hugs for now,

Christina ox
