Isn't this little girl so beautiful? I bought the photo over the weekend, it's a very small one from 1917. The photo has this girl's entire family, mom, dad, brother and her. I was able to scan it at a high resolution and blow her up. I wonder what she's thinking about. Everyone else in the photo is looking directly at the camera.
I've spent the past week getting 51 packages ready for shipping to all the artists in the Art4aCure deck. I was so petrified that all the boxes would break, so hubby went to the pack and mail place and bought about $250 in boxes, bubble wrap and packing peanuts. (It took three or more trips to spend that much, we kept running out of supplies!) He took his first load to the post office today. He kept asking me, "Aren't you excited to see this coming to an end?" but I'm not yet....we're not even close to the end....I've weighed all the packages, marked the weight with zip code and artist name on a list....next, the USPS site to calculate postage for each package, then to Stamps.com to print out each postage stamp/sticker, then going back to the 50 boxes to find the correct stamp for each box....after that, sending invoices to each artist who ordered more than her two free decks....there's just so much to be done....and my problem is and always has been, the LIST is what does me in. List makers write down their "to dos" and feel a sense of accomplishment every time they can mark something off. All I see are all the things that are left to do. Am I the only one like this? It's not pessimism. It's just the way my brain is wired.
