Happy Canada Day

Jeez, do you believe the year is half gone already? I hope everybody has a safe and festive holiday week!

I think I have to share this, maybe someone reading, if there's anyone left after my absences, can get something out of it. I mentioned in a previous post that I am hosting a swap. It is due to me today. I received a message on Saturday that one lady will not be taking part in the swap after joining in good faith 2 months ago. I gave 2 months to get 15 items made and to me and this person says sorry, maybe next time, with no care or concern or remorse. Well I'm sorry but there will be no next time for her. I think I have come to the conclusion that if I am going to host a swap again, I will invite people I know and trust. If this makes me a b...h, so be it. It's better than having something like this happen. Luckily a good friend of mine, who was very excited about the swap when I asked her, offered to make another set so as to not disappoint the other members.

My feathers were so ruffled by this turn of events that I needed some soothing and I headed straight for Nina Bagly's blog, Ornamental. Love, love, love everything about it and her. Check it out if you haven't already. You may not get the same out of it that I do but it's worth a look. I think! LOL

And lastly, I leave you with a look at my art space, like you really needed to see it. It's in a sunny corner of the bedroom, to the right is the window and to the right of the window is another storage cabinet with my computer and printers on top. Crowded little corner but it works for me. Care to share yours? I'd love to see! I need better ideas for storage. heeheeee

edited july 7 to include pic - hope I haven't lost my lovely comments.

My Sweet, You would never be forgotten. We all need a break from blogging every once in a while to catch our breath, rejuvenate, rest! Sorry to hear of your swapping woes! Love seeing your art area! I posted mine a while ago!

Well now I feel a little normal, my studio is just like yours but about 10 times the size and clutter.

But it would still be fun pokin around in there looking at all of your fun stuff!
