I love the spring and it is on it’s way. It means there will be lots of art festivals. I love working at the festivals because I love meeting new people. So, it’s a very happy time of year for me. :)

I’m a little obsessed. Well let me be more specific, because I’m obsessed with a lot of things. My intention here is not to talk about all of them all. It’s to talk about one in particular. I’m obsessed with sorting, purging and organizing things. I read something very interesting recently in a little book about clutter management. It was a passage that explained that if you love buying items intended to help you get more organized then you may need to consider that you are possibly a bit of a hoarder. Not sure if I buy that analogy but when I read it, I must say, it gave me a bit of food for thought. I mean I do love buying items that help me organize things like drawers and closets. Is that so wrong????
I started simple purging mostly envelopes and papers that had been lying around for years in my closet. Soon a bag was filled, then two, then three. You get the gist.
Hello, my name is Marcia and I AM A HOARDER. I just realize that now. Who keeps a tag that long because it’s cute? Even worse – now I don’t want to get rid of it because I like remembering that I once was a size 7.
You know what else I found in that stash with all the buttons? I found a pair of google eyes! Nope. I’m not too mature for a fine pair of google eyes. I love them! I’ve been known to use them around the house, at times, putting them on anything and everything, especially during Halloween. Good times.
Wonder if I have any more in there anywhere? I’m gonna’ go clean out a few more boxes and hope for the best.

If you’re like me when you wrap a gift you want it to look…well….adorable. I don’t know what it is about wrapping presents but typically I really get into it.
This idea came from the amazing Alisa Burke. I want to be sure to give credit where credit is due.
First I started drawing flowers. I’m totally into flowers right now because I’ve been following Alisa’s blog and am feeling seriously affected and inspired.
I uploaded the image into Photoshop and started manipulating it by mirroring the image and then mirroring it again until I was able to make it the size it needed to be in order to upload it to the wrapping paper web site.
I uploaded it to a web site called "Spoonflower" and ordered a roll of wrapping paper made out of my image.
Arrived: My own personal floral wrapping paper.
