Lessons Learned and Other Musings

The picture above is of a piece that I WAS going to submit to Cloth, Paper, Scissors for their 2012 calendar. However, I got the date wrong and missed the entry. I worked really hard on it and it went so many incarnations, so I'm bummed that I couldn't even get it entered (not sure it would have made it on the calendar though). But it's my fault. I should have written it on my calendar and double checked the submission date. Lesson learned.

As for my second lesson for the week - patience. I'm going on day 4 of snow days/school cancellation and staying at home with my son. Day 1 was fun. Day 2, we were doing ok. But by today, we were bothing getting a little "cabin feverish". Tomorrow I have plans to get us out of the house (the roads are actually pretty good, so I'm not sure why school is closed again). But, I know that this is testing my patience and once again, learning a lesson that I need to exercise patience when I don't have control over a situation. I get it. :-)

And on another note, I'm changing things up with my Etsy shop. I'm renaming it to The Joy Shoppe. I think that fits better with what I'm trying to persue with my blog. I don't have anything listed in it yet, but I will.

I hope your week is going well. Have you learned anything this week?

Peace, Love and Chocolate


  1. Joyce, I think you should do something with that piece!! So what you missed the deadline? I bet there's other things you could enter it in:)

    I understand about cabin fever!! Oh, boy do I!!;)

    Have a wonderful day...oh and I LOVE the Joy Shop!

  2. Thanks Leslie! I didn't think about entering it into something else. That's a great idea! I'll start looking. :-)
