My New BFF

Wow. How in the world did it get to be January 5th already? The week of Christmas my mom was here. We had a blast. Then the week of New Year's we all went to my sister's. That was a great week, too. I have read some blogs off and on for the past two weeks, but not as much as usual. I have missed my blogging!

Francesca thoroughly enjoyed all the Christmas festivities. She was not able to go with us to Texas for New Year's. So she was very happy when we got back home. She is my new Best Friend Forever.
When today started my house was still fully decorated for Christmas.
My studio looks like there was an explosion. This is Francesca's room, so I really need to get a grip and clean up this mess!
The chocolate fountain is still sitting in the middle of my bedroom after we used it on Christmas Eve. I have no idea why.
I have a new business plan. My mom and one of my daughters came up with the idea over Christmas. It's perfect!!!! I'm so excited to get started on all of my new projects!




But . . . I decided that I had to undecorate from Christmas, clean up my studio, and have my house in order first. It's hard for me to really concentrate on something if I know I have a thousand things to do in my house.





I had to go to the dentist today to finish up a crown on a tooth I cracked, and have a filling on another tooth I cracked. Good grief.





Aside from that trip to the dentist I have worked on my house all day.





So now it looks like this.
And this. . .

I am getting there. I think I probably have about 2/3 of it packed into boxes. It takes for.ev.er to pack it all away!
Hopefully, I can now get back to regular blogging. And I will be around to see all of you soon.
Hope your new year is starting off wonderfully!

Everybody needs a BFF and she's a beauty. But I bet she didn't lend a "hand" in getting things put away. Debbie
