Busy, busy, busy...


I'm sure you are like me... feeling as if you do not have enough time to "get it all done"... I have not made my Christmas cards this year... I have a dirty house.. I have to write my paper for my last class before I finish my Associate's Degree (due this Sunday!)... I need to blog... There's always so much to do, isn't there? How do you manage your "task list"? Do you create an actual list? Do you "wing it"? I would love to hear how you manage your time and what makes you successful. Hit the comment box below and give me your thoughts.

On a different note, I had dinner with one of my card groups Thursday, December 9th and we had such a terrific time. They are a wonderful group of women who accept me for all of my craziness! I created some ribbon pinecones (directions here) for each of the ladies and I'd like to showcase them here. I hope you use your creativeness to just do a little something for the people you love.

I made some of them very uniform and some of them random. Once I got the hang of it, it was quite easy. However, I need to state a warning: if you do 7 eggs within two days, you have VERY sore fingers!   I'm just sayin...


  1. Your ribbon ornaments are just beautiful! What a great gift for friends!
    You have such a talent. You must have a great role model.

    Maybe you need some Ritlan to calm you down, so you can get All the things you want to do in a day finished!
    Your Friend.

  2. Thanks Mom (Ruth).... I DID have such a great role model...

  3. Tracy, the ornaments are GORGEOUS! I may need directions to those--for next year, though!

    As for getting things done--I make an actual list and cross things off. The next 3 days (counting today) are my finish up days--embroidery, cards, etc. I have 6 things on my list, and hopefully 4 will be crossed off today!

    Good luck, and Merry Christmas/Happy New Year!

  4. What lucky girls to get such GORGEOUS goodies!! Your Mom is right sister - you are so talented!!!

    Managing my time - I have lists for my lists for my lists, eek! You only get one day at a time and there is only one you. Just keep swimming and know you are not alone in quest for perfect time management. (see, it even sounds weird to say perfect and time management in the same sentence, lol!) xxoo

  5. Those are incredible! I love them. You are talented!!!

    Thanks for linking up to Hookin Up With HoH!
