A Weird Kinda Day!


I never got out of my pajamas yesterday!  It was raining all day.  I just couldn't get moving ... but I did get my brain in gear!  In the background, the scary movies played I had recorded during the month of October.  I finished writing the last little bit of my manuscript and off to North Light it flew.  Yesterday was my due date, but I had sent 95% of the book already.  My editor has already started placing the text in the book and she says it is all fitting in fine, which is such wonderful news.

Fortunately I didn't have chocolate in the house!  I continued with the paperwork.  We've added so many new enamels to our inventory that I had a lot of labels to make and inventory sheets to change.

Today is a new day.  Although it will be cold, it will be sunny ... I'm fine with that. :-)  I have decals to print and then try on my enamels, the hydraulic press to use ... lots of things in my head swirling around about things I want to create!
