Hi, my name is Beth...

and I am a Hoarder. In fact, I'm probably the premier episode of this season's "Hoarders". Honestly, I can't stand my studio like this. It makes me nuts. I can't find anything and when I do, what I want is always on the bottom of a pile...

or that pile...

or this pile.

Why all this craziness? Well, Saturday I'm participating in an Artisan Fair (if you're passing by, stop in at The Ottumwa Bridge View Center 102 Church St. Ottumwa IA) and I've been nutso sewing chick. Over Labor Day weekend I sewed up storm for 56 hrs. I lived on Pepsi and M & M's.

Honestly, I didn't even know there was anything playing on the radio at 2 A.M.

Results? I'm taking with me about 50 chenille purses and a smattering of pillows. Paisley's shop will be selling her signature Puppy Cookies as well.

So why am I baring my soul, showing you my darkest secrets, putting it out there for the whole world to see and snicker at?
It's a reminder:

Creativity is a messy process.


P.S. Thank you my family! If you hadn't slipped food and water under the door, I would have surely died!

I hope you've done well at the sale. I sure understand about the messy process stuff. I wouldn't show ANYONE my sewing room right now. :-)

Warm blessings,

Whew..... A ticket for tinted windows? I love law enforcement...but wouldn't a warning be most appropriate?

My plan was to work on my sewing room today... The Hubb's first day back to work after vacation.....but my daughter called to say that my little grandson is sick so I'll be taking care of him today instead. Good think I love this boy to bits.... and wouldn't want him in school feeling lousy. My daughter's boss hit the ceiling when she had to take a sick day last week because the boy was sick.... Whew....

Have a wonderful week...thank you for popping by.
