So much to do, so little time

I've been feeling a bit over-extended these days. I seem to be having difficulty keeping up with my promises and I know it's only going to get worse over the next few months. I still haven't tried out the pleater that Tracy gave me. I've been working hard on Emma's scrapbook. I have 9 pages done. Can you say SSSLLLOOOWWW?!?!

Bev's Charity Challenge Hat Contest came to an end on Oct 31. I was able to complete 25 hats, both loomed and sewn. Here are a few of the Santa hats that I haven't posted photos of yet.

The wedding gown for HAIN is clean!! I'm so happy. I was afraid it was too soiled to be able to use the lace and beading around the bottom. Clorox does wonderful things.

It took me a couple of days (yikes!) to make these 2 receiving blankets for Crafting Angels. Bev had an urgent need for some blankets. I'm so sorry that I can't get more completed, but I just can't find the time. I'm also throwing in 2 $1 fleece blankets I picked up at Walmart.

Tuesday I'm going to Hannah's preschool to do the handprints for the quilt. May the force be with me. Just keep reminding me that it doesn't have to be perfect.

Lastly, I'm setting a deadline for Nov 27th for the next Emmazing Grace Foundation donation. I personally don't have much done, but I do want to make sure that I get the loomed Santa hats and the few sewn ones in the mail for December. If anyone wants to contribute, let me know. BIG SMILE. Also, we seem to have gotten our computer issues taken care of and I'll be updating the website with some more photos and such tonight. Lastly, the accountant contacted me late last week. He's working on getting our EIN and the 501(c)3 papers completed!

Hugs to All!

Sounds like you've accomplished a lot to me. It's easy to get over-extended though. So many good causes to help with.

You have been busy! The hats look adorable.

You can't help take care of others unless you take care of yourself! I hope you find a balance that works well for you and your family.
