So, after much procrastination and denial, I am working on my taxes today. I'm not a numbers girl (i can't think of anything more boring) but I'm doing it. Phew. Feels good. And as I mentioned on my Twitter today, I have "Tax Man" by the Beatles running through my head. ;-)
I've been doing some reorganization of my wee studio area. We're making some room for a sewing nook (*finally* taking a beginning quilting class locally, yay!) and I'm also trying to organize my supplies, like my fastly growing yarn stash above.
I found some really cool (and big) wire baskets this weekend at an antique mall that will be holding my yarn. I think my balls of yarn look quite pretty all together in this particular basket above. As you can see, some of them I actually started from scratch and rolled them into more eye-pleasing balls (instead of how they come from the store). I've been doing it when sitting with the boys every night when they go to sleep (yes, i do this every night. Will be glad when they just go to sleep on their own. Gosh, been doing this for probably 6 years now!)
As you can see, i still have quite a few yarn balls to wind. Luckily I found that you can do this in the dark! (which of course comes in handy when waiting on those little men to start snoring!)
I also found some wooden hangers that I hope to crochet soon. I've been trying to find a pretty pattern for crocheted hangers for ages, but could never find anything I liked. Then I saw that Tif on Dottie Angel had made some and I not-so-subtley hinted to her on Twitter to "please make a pattern!" And so she obliged. So very happy to get started on my crocheted hangers.
I've been listening to Holly's interview with ProBlogger today and it's been SO interesting and it got me thinking about where I want take this blog and what more I can do for YOU guys, the readers! If you have the time, I'd love to hear some ideas (post in the comments section) about what more you'd like to see here at Thompson Family-Life. I would really, really love to hear. :-)
Also, I just wanted to say "hi!" to anyone coming from Apartment Therapy and the CRAFT magazine blog. They both did posts on my Eames inspired tutorial which is really cool! Thanks for stopping by (!) and I hope you'll hang out for a while! Be sure to follow me on Twitter for blog updates, special sales just for Twitter-folk and more of my silly banter. You can also follow me on Flickr.
Back to work I go...
