I'm still around........

Hi everyone! I thought I would pop in for a short while to say *hello*. Lots of exciting stuff coming up this month, including my brand new stamp set from Papertrey that Nichole and I worked on together.......more card samples from Karen Lockhart, JustRite and more......and an Etsy shop update with bags, cards, kits, notepads and more. Stay tuned for a specific date coming soon!

I don't have any projects to show you just yet but thought I'd put up some photos from my 365 Daily Album. This is a photo of my front porch.......all my summer flowers still hanging on along with my pumpkins and mum in the background. And this cool church I drove by yesterday.......love that it was all dreary out, the church was overgrown with vine.....the funky angle of the photo.....very Halloween-y.
And then there's this mess. No words are necessary. Okay, maybe a few words.....like Oh Good Lord Gert, get a grip Michelle!! I have to clean this up before I go nuts. I don't work well under these messy conditons. It hasn't been this bad for years!! I'm typically a *don't start another project until your mess is cleaned up* kind of crafter. I don't know what happened.

Okayyyyyy now, I have to go back to work. And it's chilly out today....it might freeze....which means I have to put long pants on..plus socks....and shoes....and a jacket......which I hate...and go bring in my little pumpkin dumplins so they don't freeze. Love the Fall, love the snow...love the seasons......HATE to be cold though. Later gaters, gotta run!

Your desk just looks well loved! I have many days where my workspace looks like yours or even more cramped with stuff..I hate it when it is full and I have powders or glitters out...So easy to spill them in clutter... Enjoy the creative clutter! I can't wait to find a stretch of time to use mine!

Oh Michelle, my dear, that photo just makes me love you even more!! I know you are typically very organized and I wish with all my heart I was like that too. It made me laugh to see that you can fall as low as the rest of us messers - even if just for a minute. There's a lot of ideas swirling around in that mess - just need to rein it all in. thanks

So good to know that I'm not the only one whose desk gets like this! And can I just say that I LOVE it when you say Good Lord Gert - SO FUNNY! I bet it'll shock my family the first time it comes out of my mouth ;)

Such great eye candy for the day! I'm so glad you can make messes too!!!

Whoa baby. Now I don't feel quite so bad about my bad boy desk. But don't they say a cluttered work area is the sign of genius? No? Well I do...and that's all that counts ;-)PS the paper trimmer with the blade in the "up" position is a little scary! Can't wait to see the new creations you are in the process of putting together for us.

Love the picture of the church.

angela said...

Heather said...

yah! I just decided to check the blog one more time today to see if there was an update. My brain was saying "I'm going to scream out loud if it is still the birdcage and nothing new!" I am so happy and so is the family! Heidi quick

Love that church pic-it makes you want to scope out the inside & see what you can find:) Looking forward to seeing some of your new creations:)

Hugs,
Wanda

I've missed your daily posts! The day doesn't seem complete without a Mish update. A big desk mess seems appropriate on a chilly day. :)

Karen said...

oh girlfriend! THANK YOU for that picture of your desk! You always look as though everything is perfectly in its place. At least for one small second your desk looks like mine. I am sure you will be back to organization nation soon. BUT Alas, mine will probably stay that way.

Black Lab Mom said...

Oh, that work space looks so familiar................very similar to mine.. :)

katrynka said...

Glad to see that your area can look like that sometimes! I always end up in that state of disarray!!

Laurel said...

OMG I love your desk picture! I usually clean as I go too and my desk looks like yours right now and it is driving me crazy! I'm glad I'm not the only one! Too much creating to do and not enough time is why my desk looks like that! I, however have posts scheduled until next Tuesday so when I get back on Sunday night I think I may clean before I start again!

Amber said...

Michelle your desk looks exactly like mine : )

Kathy Camasso said...

Thank goodness, you're normal, you make messes!!! Thanks for sharing these fun photos and I'm looking forward to your PTI samples (and anything else you're working on!).

Janelle said...

Must say, I love, love, love the messy photo. I am NOT good at cleaning up before starting a new project, so it's refreshing to see that even those who are sometimes lapse into bouts of messiness. Thanks for sharing your human-ness!

Sharron said...

So glad to see your work area looks like mine did this past week! I even spread out from the desk and used the dresser! Just wanted to let you know how much I love Vintage Picnic--I have used it so much this week for thank you cards. I had such fun switching baskets, apples & pumpkins to come up with different designs! Can't wait to see the new set!

Leslie said...

Hey, my dining room table looks like your desk all of the time! I'd feel right at home creating in your mess!

Stephanie said...

Love the pumpkins juxtaposed against the summer flowers and plants that are still hanging on. My husband brought in a couple of pots with bulbs and covered a few others with plastic (small yard!)...it's fall for sure. I LOVE it!

Rose said...

Okay....love your mess Michelle. It lets me feel normal about mine..:)

Teresa said...

I Love that I found your site. I take so much time looking at new creations that I have to find time to craft. But the ideas are burning in my mind. I'll have to come back and read more. LOVE,LOVE your creations. And my room looks like that with the fall creation flowing.
