No Linky, Gotta Do Some Thinking

You know I was planning to begin my Green Weekends link event, every weekend, and I will. Just not this weekend. I am taking a small break to get things around here better organized. I am also attending a Lia Sophia conference this week to hopefully learn some new ideas to get my business rolling in that area. It should be fun. Clinton Kelly of What Not to Wear is the keynote speaker. (I hope I am not sitting anywhere near the front, I would hate to made an example!)

As you know, it has been a year now since hubs was downsized, and he has not been able to find a new position. He has decided to start his own business but things are moving sloooow to say the least. So I am taking a bit of time away to try to get things revved up on my end. We are considering a few different options for our future. Good things.
Plus, it is taking forever to ogle all of your creative spaces at Where Bloggers Create! I simply can't miss a single one!

I am so inspired by all of the ideas for storage and decorating and just plain magic that I have been seeing. My sweet daughter installed Adobe Creative Suite 4 on my Mac as well and I need to start learning how to use it. Only so much time in the day, right? So I should be back after the 4th with a better thought in my brain of where we are going from here. I might even have a badge for Green Weekends! Although I am not going to promise anything...tee hee.

Have a great weekend, a fabulous week ahead and a lovely Independence Day, P.
Pin It!

Sounds great! and so happy to hear that you are both now working for yourselves and NOT a large greedy corporation.

Enjoy your week-end. Hope it gives you some great info to work with.

Things are sounding good!!! I have a Mac too, let me know how that works for you!!! Where would we be without our kids to teach us?!!! Watch out for Clinton, although I think he is easier on folks than Stacy!!!

That should inspire you....enjoy the conference!!!!!
