the sun is shining and a new week begins

There are many things to do but the good news is I got plenty of rest over the weekend. For the most part I've been all about write, write, write (yes - you know the book!). I've been getting up at 4:30 every single morning (not the weekend!) since last week to work on it. I used to be a devoted night owl but my body can't take it anymore (age catching up with me?). I'd rather concentrate in the early morning with a cup of coffee next to me and be wide awake when the kids are ready to start the day.

I only have one simple side project to speak of. Here's a wallpaper image I made for the kids' computer. Recognize the animals? The monitor has a particular licensed character duplicated over and over on it right now and I just can't look at it one more minute! I'm already thinking that safari type animals would be cute for the next one.

A couple of things worth checking out:
- In case you haven't seen it, I posted a new interview on Crafty Synergy a couple of days ago. Here it is.
- Marisa, recent guest of Crafty Synergy, has just announced the completion of her first children's book. So adorable!!

Happy Monday!


  1. I was once a devote night owl as well but this pregnancy has me beat! I have been in bed by 8 most nights only problem is I am slepping until 7 and loving every minute of it!

  2. Oh as far as being creative - not really. I'm writing how-to instructions so it's more mechanical. Thank goodness.

    You have the best excuse Amy! Feel NO guilt, enjoy it and congratulations! :)
