and she blogs.....

As i sit here tonight and listen to my hubby snoring away, i wonder to myself... why do i do as many things as i do? Why do i take on so many projects and feel so stressed sometimes that I can't even sleep. That's where i am right now.

Kind of on the eve of National Letter Writing Month and it seems just so overwelming. It all seemed so simple. Put it here on the blog and invite folks to play, start a new email address and have folks email there and add their names to the contacts folder - i think that's where it all went south. I am missing some email addresses and this is the only way I can think of to alert folks to the upcoming writing rituals. I hope all you letter writers read this blog post.

Tonight, i had to begin to get the letter writers our to their pen pals. Just a few to begin with. Just the international group. So, really... just a few. And i am missing emails and i sent the message before the correct attachment was there and i didn't explain it well. I had to email again, wait to get responses , explain my mistakes and repeat.  Man oh man... i need a break.

So i said to myself.... you need a break. I think - and don't quote me on this .... i think that I do TOO much. And maybe this was just an undertaking that was just too big for me this year. With a full time job, a million side jobs when i get home, planning a wedding for my son in a few months, sending proposals for a new book and trying to get a new line of products picked up..... you get the idea. Something has to give.

If you signed up to play in National Letter Writing Month. I apologize. I know there is gonna be some confusion this year. It will all work out in the end. Snail Mail. That's what will save us. When you get that first piece of mail... in the mail. Sometimes the old fashion way of mail through the mail is the best way.

Also... i have decided to mail out my first postcard to people early. I am sending something to each and every one WITH your pen pal listed on it. So that if, by chance, i didn't get your email address added to my contacts that you will still KNOW WHO your pen pal is via the good old mailbox.! So... it will all work out... in the mail. Just be patient! Please.......

I normally don't write alot on the blog. Mostly i am full of art and pretty pictures.
Like this one.... of one of the signs i am working on for one of the 10 weddings i have taken on this season. or.....like these below.....
 working in the documented life challenge is what is keeping me sane and grounded right now. thank heavens for it!
 this weeks challenge was to... put a bird on it. I loved coming up with this idea....
so, i think that I am just a bit stressed this year and that's why i am rambling on and on about nothing. Sorry for that. But sometimes you have to ramble to know that it's ok. Everything is gonna be ok.... and guess what? It will be just fine. I'm done now. Have a great weekend!!!

Lindsay, there was just a tiny, itsy bitsy bit of confusion with the email to the out of country people and it was easily explained and sorted, so no need to worry or beat yourself up about it. No need to overstress yourself or take on more tasks, the month of April should be as fun and exciting for you as it is for the rest of us NLWM participants. Feel free to delegate - there are many, including myself, who would be glad to assist in any way if possible. You are doing an amazing thing by organizing this group and we love you for it! THANK YOU!!

Wow, how wonderfully, creative a person you are. I'll have to read every word, after work of course, and learn from the master.
