Finding Balance...

I've had a very productive start to this challenge.  And much as I would love to keep on scrapping, my dad arrives on Wednesday for a week long visit.  I fear I need to do the right thing and clean up the cave and make the house more "company ready".  

I'll still check in, but am not setting any major goals for crafting while Dad is here.  

And what makes things worse?  My CTMH stuff just arrived today.  Bummer...I so want to play!
(and lest anyone think I've cheated on my resolution to use my stash, I ordered it back in '08!)

But one part of this challenge for me is to find balance in my life. It can't be an all or none approach:  because all crafting, makes for unhappy men here at the House of Chang...and not enough crafting makes this Martha cranky and depressed.  So, I shall work on finding balance, making use of little snippets of time when they present themselves, and recognizing when I need to turn my attention to other areas of my life.

Wishing you all a great week...eager to see what you get accomplished in the weeks to come!

My mum arrives on Sunday and I know I won't be able to spend as much time scrapping! She will be here until the 27th, so I have a bunch to do before she arrives to make up for the 2 weeks I lose in this challenge!!! EEK!
Have a great visit with your dad Martha!
Thanks for the words of encouragement!
