Organized and Inspired

Nothing kills inspiration like a mess.  Many times I have gone into the scrap room to create, only to turn around and walk out because the chaos from a previous project is still on my table.  I'm a pretty organized person, but I can easily let it all get out of control.  So when I saw this post on Emilie Handmade, I got a little excited :).

Emilie is doing a month-long series about organizing your creative space, which should lead to more inspiration (and more getting done!).  And on top of all the tutorials and fabulous information, there are prizes.  Who doesn't love prizes?  I'll be following along and I hope you will too!

Well, I had hoped to share my December Daily with you, but last night we had a major power outage and I didn't get to work on it.  The lights went out about half an hour before church was over, we quickly cooked dinner with remaining sunlight, then it was candles and flashlights until this morning.  We started the book "A Wrinkle in Time" - one of my all-time favorites - by flashlight, then made smores on the gas stove top.  The boys were restless, so we drove to Rocklin (a nearby city) to look at Christmas lights.  Check out this house - hilarious!

We live in the same town as our parents and so neither set of grandparents had power, either.  Grandmama invited us over for marshmallow roasting and we visited with Grandma Carrie to see Auntie Shanae and Uncle Andrew come into town from Idaho.  All in all, it was a very busy night and luckily not a very cold one.  The house powered up again at 6 am and the boys have been back to their DVD's and I've had my computer fix :).

I'm off to work on orders and hopefully finish up some gifts.  I hope your Monday is a good one!  Tessa
