County Fair Time

Ah, it is the pre fair week, the time at which we turn in all 4h fair projects and have talent shows, queen contests, etc... My kids have been frantically working on their projects, trying to get them finished.  We turn them in on Mon, Tues, Wed.  I took 3 bracelets to the Indiana State Fair yesterday, this is a first for me.  I will also be entering some in the Morgan County Fair this week.  The fair is such a simple, fun week for everyone but it also signals that summer is almost over, school will be starting soon and the holidays will be here before we know it.

The amethyst cuff bracelet in the picture is one of the pieces I took to the State Fair.  As I go back to my organization thoughts, again, with some planning and thought, even 4h projects would go more smoothly.  I have recently taken an organizational class from Krista Green.  She has some great ideas.  You can find her at

Hope you all have a good day!

Organization is that elusive thing I continue to search for! I am so good at starting things and wanting to have systems, but I can just never get to the end result. My goal is that the last few weeks of summer will be spent trying to get to the end results. One of my goals is to keep my website, store, and blog updated, hopefully at least weekly. I hope some of you who want to read about my trivial things will follow! I hope to share my journey of getting my life into order and what works and what doesn't. For now, this is my first baby step, putting it out there for all to see! Watch for more to come.
