Come Unto Me.....

I had a pretty productive day beginning about 7:30 this morning.  Saturday is my day to sleep in since I get up at 5am during the week to get ready for work.  But this morning I woke up about 6:30 and couldn't get back to sleep so I finally gave up and got up.  I went into the kitchen to fix myself some breakfast but got side tracked by my 'tupperware cabinet'.  You know the cabinet.  It's the biggest cabinet in your kitchen that is full of every size and shape of plastic ware - containers, bowls and lids!  My cabinet had gotten to the shape where you quickly open the door - throw something in and close the door before something else falls out.   I opened the cabinet and sat down and begin taking everything out.  I was determined to keep only the items that had a lid, and get rid of anything that I no longer used.   I probably threw away about 40 lids!  I guess I had this fear that a container would show up looking for it's matching lid so I saved the lid just in case.  If it wouldn't stack - I got rid of it!

Of course, after the cleaning and purging of the 'tupperware cabinet', I then proceeded to the utensil drawer, the silverware drawer and finally the drawer that holds the foil, plastic wrap and baggies. The 'miscellaneous' drawer will have to wait for another day.

Next on my list was to work on projects for the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  Since I can't share those projects yet, I wanted to create something I could share.  So I looked to this week's challenges for some inspiration.

This is a pretty simple card using the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, colors from Color Throwdown and a condolence theme for Friday Mashup.
