Resting at the cinema.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to get some rest, break from the routine, and just have some fun.

So for today I slept in, will actually cook some breakfast (and not just grab something), and then head off to the movies tonight to escape for just a bit. I believe Spiderman is on the screen tonight. I think my favorite movie of all time is the Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, or the Wizard of Oz. What’s yours?

Happy Crafting!

Managing your Monday!

It’s Management Monday! And just like that Spring Break is over and we are back at it! Here’s to getting back into the routine. Here’s what’s happening this week…

I am doing a bunch (I mean, a bunch) of planning to get the BOGO sale planned (more details to come on Tuesday’s weekly highlights), the DIY class at Desert Rebel, Card Class, VIP Event, and the New Catalog Open House. All of these are happening in May!

There is an order going tonight at 7:30 pm. If you would like to help Jodi earn free product then either use host code SXRN3VAW or contact me before tomorrow evening.

Happy Crafting!

Spring Break!

It’s Sabbath Sunday! While I am travelling back from OnStage and unpacking (laundry, etc.) my daughter is beginning her spring break. Now today is not much of a break for her as she is away for a Drumline Competition, but I know some of the weekdays will have sleeping in as part of her schedule.

Yes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I believe she is in five different bands at school as well as her core classes. I can’t blame her as it runs in the veins. I come from a long line of go-getters. Both of my Gramas and many of my Aunts and Uncles are of the same mindset. We tend to go and when there is a day off much of it involves being horizontal.

So as our house gets a week “off” I will ask you how you break up your routine to keep your perspective fresh and vibrant.

And we are back to rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest or re-charge. Weren’t we just here? It seems like the weeks keep going faster and faster. So what do you do to rest or change up your routine?

Since I don’t have customer service hours today I am in the studio. I have all the printed project ideas on the floor and I am figuring out what we are creating for next month’s Card Class. Does this sound like fun to you? I love this stage of planning. My least favorite is all the cutting. And my most favorite is seeing it all come together with you at class.

What are you up to today?

Resting by breaking up the routine.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to break up your routine, get some rest, or get re-charged. I don’t know what I am up to today. Joel asked me to block the day so we could have some fun. So I will be breaking out of my routine doing who knows what. Do you have someone spontaneous and surprising that helps you break out of your routine?

Happy Crafting!

Are you resting?

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Are you resting? I know there is a time change and everything else. Believe me. I know. I have the piles on my desk to prove it. But sometimes you need to walk away and take a breath. You need to do something different to reset your mind.

How do you break up your routine so the little daily things don’t drive you crazy? What is your version of a breath of fresh air?

Mine is a clean craft studio and not as many piles. So I will wake up with no alarms (yes, it is plural) and ease in to my day. And then I will clean, pick up, and get things done. Here’s to a slower day.

Breaking from the routine.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Is it possible to break out of the routine? Are you able to slow down enough to rest? For me this is a much needed break. I run about a hundred miles an hour all the time so for me it is a must to force myself to slow down.

So how do you slow down? Do you just automatically do it? Do you have a certain meal you fix? Or do you just run until you have to take a break?

Here’s to getting out of the rut and looking at things from a different perspective.

Taking a break.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! What do you do to take a break? I know many of you that teach are in the middle of grading and report cards. I know some of you are doing inventory and others are working on year end reports. So when everything is done how do you relax? How do you break up the routine?

For me it means going to a good dinner (not fancy but more comfort food). It means going in to the studio and just creating. Or it means having some fun at the mini golf place. And sometimes it means going to see a movie and escaping reality with a bucket of popcorn. I think today my daughter, Tara, has put in the request to see a movie. So it is off to the cinema we go.

Whatever you do I hope it is restful, peaceful, and rejuvenating.

Happy Crafting!

Friends are important.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today I am breaking up my routine by entertaining one of my daughter’s friends. Friends are important in every stage of life. How do you keep up with friends? Do you have a certain day that you set aside to do lunch or make plans?

Happy Crafting!

Are you resting today?

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today for me?  I am on day 2 of the Reach Out Morongo Basin’s Craft Fair.  I am not resting much but I am getting to talk to people and do a bunch of crafting.  It’s a break from the routine but not one with my feet up.

I would encourage you to go out of your comfort zone and do something different today.  If you always go get breakfast on Sunday morning maybe order your eggs different.  You just might discover something new and like it.

Happy Crafting!
