No Excuses

Okay, I am not even going to comment on my utter failure as a blogger over the summer. Except…I kinda just did. LOL. I have been extremely busy, but that is a lousy excuse and I admit it. I’ve just not been in the mood to write anything that might be remotely readable.

Feel very sorry for my English teacher who had to grade a paper that I wrote while not in the mood to write anything remotely readable, you should. *faith makes a silly face here*

However, I still ended the summer semester with my 4.0 GPA firmly intact. Go self. Only two more semesters, both will probably be a lot more work to keep that lovely GPA, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. FINALLY. This semester is Commercial Photography, Photojournalism, and Entrepreneurship and next semester will be Business, Multimedia, and Portfolio II….then I’ll get to be FREE! YAY! *fingers crossed* that nothing goes wrong with the schedule to mess things up.

Kids went back to school yesterday. The PTDQ is in middle school now. YIKES. I hate it….the school, that is. I could rant for hours about their lack of communication and simple organization, but I won’t. I have too many other things to do today.

20150825_081055THIS……….. ^^^ ………is what I’m avoiding at the moment. I am sitting right now in the middle of that mess wishing it would organize itself. Actually, this picture was taken this morning before I removed everything from the closet to go through and weed out all my craft stuff….so when I say I’m in the middle of a mess, this picture is a slight understatement. I’m so not in the mood. I have too much junk. But it will be better when I finish so I really need to get back to it.

First though, my project yesterday…I have been meaning to make my own padded insert to convert a purse to a camera bag. I’ve seen all kinds of cute pins on this, and thought it looked simple enough….

Well. I did it. I am an awfully horrific seamstress so don’t look closely at the stitching but the foam is closed up in there and the camera is protected. And if you don’t look closely, it’s pretty cute, too. HAHAHA.

I was a bit bummed though because the purse seemed a lot bigger before I put the insert in….I may have to revisit this project with a larger purse because I was really hoping to be able to carry an extra lens AND a flash…along with a few other necessary objects. And as it is, I can carry one extra lens and the charger with the camera…nothing else. It will work for now, but I’ll have to keep looking for a better arrangement.

HUMMM…I just had a stroke of genius…my old camera bag that is falling apart at the seams has padding in it I could possibly reuse as a padded liner if I disassemble it completely and sew it into a new liner…..AHA! I won’t trash it just yet after all! LOL

Great. Now I have one more item that has to stay in this already overcrowded office until I can put it to good use.

Okay back to work. Now anyone who still reads this knows I’m still alive. And still a procrastinator. All is right with the world. HAHAH.

Have a lovely day.


  1. You're still blogging? Remember the days at the radio station when you introduced me to blogging? I decided to take it up again and wondered if you were still at it. And you are :)

    1. Ha! Yes, I still am...if you can call once a month (if I'm lucky) still at it. Hahaha. Nice to see you're getting back into it yourself! =)


Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
