To do list

50 yards of wool dyed and ready to ship when sold:
The cutest boy ever - I'm a little biased. :)
One of the many scrapbooks from my grandmother - she has been a world traveller since she was a small child and has a ton of scrapbooks for all her many travels - I'm so lucky to have them all!

The new laser jet hubby bought me for our anniversary:

Hang tags designed, printed and ready to cut and finish:
Mordecai "cutting a rug" dancing to swing:
Here is the wool I need to cut - just a small portion of it.

My father-in-law also gave me a whole bunch of old record albums - Frank Sinatra, Swing Bands, old country. My son, Mordecai LOVES swing music. He's been "cutting a rug" whenever he hears the Swing Records being played.

I have designed and printed a lot of new hang tags and now I have to cut them out and attach hang strings - then take photos, write ads, post ads. More of my NOT favorite things to do.

My husband, Bob, got me a new laser jet printer. Now I have two of them! Yeah - They print about 1000 pages of full color hang tags before you have to buy new ink. I'll be busy designing new tags and have several wholesale orders to print and finish.

I also have lots of my grandmother's scrapbooks to finish scanning for more hang tags. I think I'll be busy for months. :) I'm glad. It gets my mind off of the world and all the scariness in it. Sometime in all this I need some hooking time - sleep is out. LOL.

And now I'm off to do some "real" work.

This is my first post. I finally decided to jump on the blog bandwagon. I have just dyed over 50 yards of wool and now I'm fighting the boredom of listing all the ads to 4 different web sites. JEESH. Writing the same ad for each of my 53 stock colors 4 times, even if it is copying and pasting mostly, is TEDIOUS. And now I'm starting a blog!! Another new thing to learn and tweak out. :) I guess I just don't like to be idle for very long!
