Sketch Wednesday

First things first; Special thanks to Maria for her post on Glimmer Mists and their ease of use and versatility. Remember to check back next week to find more mists on the website, Maya Mists to be exact and give altering your chipboard and cardstock a shot. Now - it's Wednesday. Far enough into the week to be looking toward the weekend, yet enjoying the accomplishments of the past week. I am happy to report that my house is Christmas Free! Yes, it's sad but true that as of Sunday morning I still had my tree up in my living room, half decorated. I had rounded up all the other decorations from the house and they were piled in the dining room. But come Sunday evening my living room was de-Christmased and back to normal, my dining room was empty and all the decorations were packed and put away - in their right place I might add, not just sort of stacked near where they should be. I didn't realize it until Monday morning when I came down to make lunches, how depressing and defeating it was to see that tree still standing there with the clutter of decorations around it. To come down to a tree-free living room that was neat and tidy was so. . .lightening. Made Monday morning a good thing! (Happy sigh). So here we are at Wednesday night and I'm actually thinking of doing something crafty - depending on how long it takes me to get some Apron Strings things out of the way - this post and getting tomorrow's Blue Plate Special set up. I'm excited by the prospect -- I'll let you know how it goes. Whether you're looking to continue a week filled with accomplishments, or maybe it's just been one of those weeks where you can't seem to get anything done, give today's sketch a go. Thanks to Bessie, again, for this week's sketch. :)
Remember to complete and link all three challenges from this week by Saturday evening to be eligible for a Cookie Jar Treat.
I'm off to enjoy some quiet and maybe some crafting time. I need it - the 1 y.o. was in bed before seven o'clock, if that tells you how the evening was going. :) Enjoy your own quiet time tonight.
