Still organizing, and some show pics

This weekend will find me organizing again, as well as canning more dill pickles, and taking a bike ride with hubby to visit a seafood buffet. YUM on the buffet part! I finally uploaded some pics of my booth at the show, I did not get a chance to take very many, but here are a few, taken toward the middle of the show -

I will be adding to my etsy shop sometime in the next few weeks, once I get a bit more of the organizing bug out of my system. :) I am also planning on stitching up a fleece blanket for myself this w/e, I have some fleece with cardinals and pine branches that I think would be a cozy snuggly blanket for this winter, and I have some embroidery to do on a few totes. I might even get to scrap something, I haven't scrapped in a few weeks and I have really missed it.

Hope you all have a faboo weekend!

Worked on organizing allllll weekend, dang no fun here

But it us starting to look good!!! I got tired of my fifty gazillion piles everywhere. I wanted to wait until after the show, as I kept pulling more and more stuff out to work on. I still want to take poics and post them of the nifty little things I picked up at the show, I will do so, I promise, it will just take me a bit longer. We have also lived in this house for about 3 years now and still haven't hung the pictures in the basement yet! Sheesh. I pulled everything out to look at and see what we need as far as filling in the blanks. I have a little list now, so I will be heading to Hoby Lobby after work on Monday to pick a few things up. We have a lot going again this week, but one of the things is Sew B (YAHOOOOOOO!). I can't wait till Tuesday, a few friends and I go to McD's after work, then head to Sew B. It's loads of fun. Hopefully this w/e I can finish up my organizong, at least what I want to finish for the time being. We will do pickles again, prbably Wednesday, since they are still coming on strong. We did 33 quarts last week, it was crazy. Between dh and the jars we give away, we might be out of pickles before Christmas! he he
I am going to be doing a blog tweaking in the next few weeks too. When I have a few things caught up at home I will start on my blog. I will be doing a contest, so stay tuned. It will be eaasy peasy, just sign up to be a follower. Easy enough, right? Anybody signed up to be a follower of my blog will be entered in the drawing. I'll post more deets when I get close to being ready.
Hope you all have a faboo week!!!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
