Happy Happy Monday ! It feels like the start of a great holiday season. First let me say that the winner of the stickers etc. picked by Mrs. Glossers' Random Number Generator is Andie of The Brown Bee Studio Click and go visit her sweet crafty'll love it !

Now on to new business. It's been a very busy week and as usual I'm not keeping up very well. Do you have any tips for keeping up with things? I could sure use them :)

My wish for you: May you be able to not only keep up but to get ahead !

Hello Francie,
I wish I could help you with "keeping up". I'm having trouble with it myself!

Francie, if you sneak up to the Norh Pole all the elves are up there. You could use them to stay on top of everything. I've tried an elf trap baited with candy cane, no luck so far.

Hi Francie. I always look forward to your blog. I love the music too. I wish I had a magic fairey wand to stay caught up and ahead. I guess I do my best with a list. At least its a great feeling to scratch off done things. LOL
Have a great hugs:), gail

If you don't think about keeping up with things, you don't worry about it...just take it as it is way too short to worry about keeping up! Let it go down however it wants to :-)

Your things are so cute! And Thank you!!! I got my sweet package and gift from you on Friday. That was such a fun surprise!!! Great packaging too ... I really appreciate the gift!

Marie said...

Hi Francie,
I agree with Susan, unless of course you can ruthlessly toss anything you haven't used for a year. If I did thyat, I wouldn't have much to keep up with. :O)

Debbie said...

Hi Francie....well, writing lists works for me when I'm in a time crunch. I love your little carolers but I sure would like to win one of your little cherub fragrancers. :)

Your the best! Your surprises make everyone feel like a queen. Congrats Andie, you are in for a treat.

Keeping up? Hmmmm.... never thought of it... such a concept. If you never try to keep up then you never ever feel left behind. And I agree with everybody, all you're things are so adorable -- just swirl around in the glory of them. How's that for a tip?

P.S. What I do is dash really really fast till something gets done and I feel really tickled about that one thing -- then it's on to the next thing... oh, now I am tired.

Francie I've tried every single tip for trying to keep up and they all stink!Creative, business women such as ourselves never get caught up. If we did, we'd be bored and go find something to do. :)hee,hee

Craft Diva said...

Carrie Gonzalez said...

Congratulations Andie! What a treat! Francie you are just the most generous person!

Queenly Things said...

Keeping up? I do not know this concept. Ack!!!

cathy said...

I love the angel and the carolers!
I'm having the same problems with keeping up! I guess it's that time of year for us. One of the things I have been doing is making a weekly list of things I have to do & then I pick the 3 most important to do & put it on my daily list. If I complete those 3, I'll look over the list & add something else. I repeat the process the each day.
It's still not getting everything done that I need to do BUT it's getting the most important things done & I'm not running around overwhelmed wondering what should I do next.

Silena said...

All I can say is, take deep breaths, close your eyes, and picture everything you want done....done! Oh well, one can dream,right?!? I think we all feel the same way about keeping up. Your giveaways are delightful, as usual and, of course, you are delightful, as usual...thanks for your very generous spirit!!

Angie said...

Beautiful! As far as keeping up I've been trying to get in the habit of putting things away instead of putting them down.

Have a beautiful day!

Deborah said...

Wish I could help, Francie! I'm so far behind and feel bad that I can't even keep up with my blogger friends!

Congratulations on your win!

Aunt T said...

I'm so far behind myself! I have had no time to even check in with my cyber friends.

FYI - You've been tagged on my blog :)

Hi Francie!

Thought I would stop by and say hello! Keeping up you say??? aaak what does that mean? lol I just do what I can each day. It's impossible to get it all done. But I must admit that I love being busy. Love the bucket. How cute. You always have the cutest things. Hope you have a great day pinkie and please do take the time to stop and smell the roses. ;-)
