Running To and Fro & Hither and Yon

Before we get to today's post, I want to say thank you to all of you who commented on the previous one. It did just what I had hoped - raised awareness - and that makes me heap glad!

..............................................................................................................................................................

Okay. So remember the running? It has commenced. And I am loving it. For the first 3/4 mile, at least.

And then I'm more or less hating it. But somehow still loving it.

I hate it. But I love it.

And I also love fragments {and rabbit trails, evidently}.
Always love those, never hate them. Just to clarify.

In other news, my mind has been all a-clatter, trying to inwardly organize things for an upcoming event where I will be selling some of my handmades. I am mass producing for the first time ever and she do not agree with me. I'm more of a create-as-the-muse-strikes kind of girl. This whole produce-produce-produce-must-keep-producing mindset is wearing me down... making me nervous.

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of The Nervous. I find it makes it difficult to do stuff.

And I really need to be doing stuff right about now.

I set a goal though. I will use up all of the materials I have, making as many things as possible with what I have on hand. And I will do it all this week.

I'll post some pictures relatively soon.

{Ya like how I threw in that "relatively"
so as not to actually COMMIT to any set and determined time?
See? That's more my style.
To know me is to love me.
Or to be perpetually frustrated.
}

One of the things I'm making {Diaper/Wiper Pouches}, I posted pictures of long ago. I'll be making a slew of those, and also something else I have a hard time labeling. They're hand-stitched, framed quotes and words.

Every time people ask what I'm making I go all dead in the eyes. I don't know what to call them.

"Hand-Stitched, Framed Quotes and Words" is a bit loquacious, don't you think? Not to mention lacklustre. And dumb.

If you name them for me, I will make all your dreams come true.

I might even build you a cake or something.

So that is it lovely people.... that's what I've been up to.
Running on my legs, and running in my brain.

I feel like a hamster. Could someone bring me a salad?

"All dead in the eyes..." Ha! Love that.

I cannot wait to see pictures of the things you are working your hiney off to produce. And, sorry, I'm no helping in naming your framed quotes and words, but I think that description works. But what do I know?? :)

Glad the running is going well...I have a fear of running (at least on my treadmill) since I fell off. I suppose it would be a completely different story on flat stable ground, though.

I'm going to have to buy one of your wipes cases. Perhaps my shelling out money for diaper-related things will prompt Princess to finally GET POTTY TRAINED.

(That's essentially Murphy's Law, right?)

I sent my suggestion to you in an email. Now will you come teach me to run? :)

I hate running. Not love-hate, but just plain hate. And I ran cross country in high school.

Instead, I play basketball. The time flies when I'm playing.

Don't tell me Wordgirl doesn't have enough quotes? No way!

You can totally do it, girl.

I would so help you come up with a shorter name for your hand-stitched frames with quotes and words and but i'm just terrible at that kind of thing. Sounds like a fun, if BIG, project - you can do it!
