Picking up Strings and Things

Cleaning my desk for the inevitable next project, straightening this and that, and picking up strings and things has been the order of the day.

I like a brand new start – a clean slate – every so often.

I also decided to update my blog a bit. You might look at it and think, “Uh, what’s different?” but let me tell you that it took up most of the afternoon to get this far.

Firstly, I added some bear blogs to the list. It’s getting interesting with so many to visit! If you are a bear artist, you might want to see if your bear blog is listed. If not, send a link to me via email.

Next, I went through all my labels and tried to consolidate them into fewer categories. I realize that most of you smart bloggers already do this, but I am a slow learner.

Lastly, I added some book titles from my summer reading to my shelf. Not all of them, but a few. I think The Sugar Queen and Garden Spells were among my favorites, but it’s hard to choose with so many books and so little time.

So, I guess the cleaning and straightening carried over to this blog. Thankfully, the shelves here don’t need to be dusted and the floor here doesn’t need vacuuming!

And now that I have worn myself out here as well, it’s time to turn my attention to what to wear to the TBAI opening reception. It is a Mad Hatter Tea Party and I expect it will be outrageous fun. We’ve been instructed to wear hats. I’ll have to show you mine, but first I have to take a photo.

Surely I can manage that – perhaps – tomorrow?



  1. Ja, I know it... sometimes is good too clean up for a new start :-)
    And yes... we would like to be in your bear blog list ;-) (http://goodjujubears.blogspot.com)
    Have a nice day!

  2. Miss Ginger,

    We love your Blog, and change is always fun. Your Mad Hatter's hat - hm, we think the bears should be part of its creation and certainly want to help you in any way they can. "WE WORK FOR HONEY" (o:

    Hugs & smiles,

  4. Hmm, maybe I should start a bookshelf... I have a list of books I've read this year... but that's it so far.

    I kind of want a "Books I've Read" list that works like the blog archive area... so that I could keep track month by month and year by year... and most importantly, collapse them down so they don't make my page a million miles long!

  5. the summer clean!...before satr the new school year..well, the nexta part of the year...

  6. Ahh, I love a good clean out now and again! Looking forward to seeing what hat you chose :o)

  7. I had to do the same thing in my studio, just so my domestic could get in there to clean but I couldn't wait to get it all out again.
