So, you all know I'm spending this week getting products
ready for the grand opening of a new store near here that
will be selling Good Day Designs. It's starting to hit me
that I'm doing all of this with no husband (he's working out
of town for a bit) and a full time day job. Yawn.
My average bedtime this week has been midnight. Yawn.

Figuring you could all use a good laugh, I thought I'd paint
a picture of last night's crafting/production session.

Since most of what I had to do last night was embellishing
cards/magnets/gift tags and packaging, I decided to set up
camp on the living room floor and watch P.S. I Love You
which was coming on Lifetime. I'd never seen it and thought
it would be good background entertainment.

I was right - it was a great movie.
But by about 10:30 I was growing more weary-eyed
and the movie was getting more emotional.
So, picture this:
Me hot gluing ribbon bows onto clothespin magnets
crying like a baby with big crocodile tears and all.
I just kept right on working through it all...
like some sweatshop elf on auto pilot.

I don't know why I find this so funny this morning.
Maybe it's the residual exhaustion. Just humor me
and leave some comments telling me I'm normal.

In more exciting news for the masses,
I'll have LOTS and LOTS of new items to share with you
soon. I'm even thinking about doing a tutorial or two.
