W.I.P. Wednesday : Checking In

Greetings! Welcome to all the new Wipsters – you are all such an inspiration, and I just love to see the list growing. In fact, I’m having trouble keeping up! If you’re still not on the list, have no fear. I’ll be adding you soon.
I cannot believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted. I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who has sent me little love notes and to reassure everyone – all is well. In fact, I’m a little buried by a blessing, so to speak.
I found a new part-time teaching job (in addition to my other teaching position) and have just been scrambling to get things running smoothly. I am very behind, but I have a feeling that I’ll get a handle on organising all this soon. There have been some big schedule changes for Guppy to adapt to, in addition to her new class and teacher, and we are all adjusting, but things are headed in a good direction.
Can you believe it’s nearly Autumn? I have so many projects waiting to be started (and finished), but there just isn’t enough hours in the day right now! I have been beating my W.I.P. jones, however, admiring all the fine creations on the W.I.P. Wednesday Flickr Pool.
There is no way I can properly express my gratitude to all of you for your friendship. In the past few weeks I’ve received an outpouring of love, and I can’t thank you enough. I’m sorry I’m behind on emails (you know who you are!), but please know I’m so thankful for your support and compassion!

Do you have any new W.I.P.s in the works? We would love to see what you’re up to! Snap a shot of your  “in progress” masterpiece and add it to the  W.I.P. Wednesday Flickr Pool. Whatever your works-in-progress, have a crafty week, and don’t forget to see what the other Wipsters are working on.

  2. Hey Fishy! I’ve been so out of the loop lately I didn’t realize you had so much on your plate! Glad to hear all is well and all are adjusting… doing a bit of adjusting my self and hoping to be back up and running before MoFo!! Miss you and WIP Wednesdays… I shall return…. **FISHY KISSES** ~Guava

  3. I love new jobs! I’m a weirdo, but I think applying for jobs is fun and gratifying. I’ll probably never stop working. Sometimes I collect too many jobs.

    I’m so happy to hear you sounding so sunny, Shelly. Keep posting your crafty creations! Your posts go in waves of crafts and food.

    Once E. and I stop living out of a suitcase, I’m going to buy supplies for creating collages again. Then I will post and share my creations.

    Take care.

  4. I have some WIPs that haven’t been progressing at all for way too long. I’d like to pick them up again sometime soon, and when I do, I’ll try to share them with you. Thanks, Shel, for the inspiration!
    I hear you on the adjustment thing. I haven’t been doing very well with it in the past few years, so I get how hard it is. You had so much on your plate already, I really admire you for having the courage to take on some more. You rock! And, once again, you are inspiring me. 🙂
