Can we talk about time management? Goodness, I am so far beind for this show, farther than normal and honestly, I have no idea why.
Oh yes, there was May, which is often a more busy month than December. And then hubby, who is an assistant principal at the high school, got thrown in as acting principal. The other assistant prinicipal was moved to the middle school so hubby was the only administrator to finish out the year at the largest A school in the state. I tried to ease his stress by asking for no help around the house, etc. from him. Throw in a few days of illness and I am running around like a headless chicken.
I love what I do and could spend all hours of the day working on it, so that is not the problem. My 48 year old body however, cannot handle 10 hour days of sanding, drilling sawing. I need to work a few hours at a time, break for a bit, work again. I will survive, I will have a blast at the show tomorrow, and hopefully all of it will sell!
What is your best time management tip and strategy? Inquiring minds want to know!
I managaed to get pictures of one of the items I made for tomorrow's show. A hall tree that was simple and easy, with, what I think, lovely results. I started with tis drawerless table (cell phone pic).
I painted it a few coats of wite and then added some beadboard across the front where the drawer was.
Three pieces of reclaimed wood added to the back, secured with 2x4's across the back,
a little shelf with crown molding across the top,
hooks and a mirror,
a bottom shelf,
and an awesome blue color I mixed up was all this needed to create a simple and functional hall tree.
Oh, why is my hall tree in the grass? This was right before it was loaded up to head to the show. I hope this sweet little piece finds a new, happy home!
