{lots of new ruffles}

I finally have had a second {but just one} to photograph these little ruffled note cards. They are so cute! Each listing includes four cards post-card style {flat cards}. I wish I could send a set to each of you. These cards sold out pretty fast last time I listed a batch, and it’s taken me fo-evah to make some more and get them ready for sale. Only the LORD knows just how much I like to pile on my plate ;]

{OK, and maybe my husband knows, too?}

Aren’t they just darling?


*A little reminder that Mother’s Day is coming up soon — last day to place your order for guaranteed on-time shipping {US orders, only} is Friday, April 23! That’s two weeks away…

I also have one zipped pouch left in this print combination:

On another crafty-note: Mama Gus has been busy with her knitters. I’ve recently added this café-colored knitted blanket to the shop:

I’ve been a busy Gus, successfully tackling my to-do list. There are a few more things I need to accomplish still, like work on Monday’s surprise… but I’m very happy with my progress.

Yesterday I met a great friend for brunch. We chatted over coffee for dozens of minutes and I loved it. Then later on, Zack and I found ourselves chatting away and it suddenly sunk-in that we are married. I’m not sure if I can accurately describe how I felt at that moment. I’ve known Zack for 6 years now — and this summer will be our second wedding anniversary. We joke that we forget we are two separate people some times… I love how immersed we are in each others life. Makes me very happy :]

OK — have a truly blessed day!

{Tackling the to-do list.}

This weekend I hope to put a serious END to my ever-so-long to-do list. I have checkbook covers to sew, laptop bags to sew, fabric to iron, fun items to photograph and list {including a baby blanket}! I’ve got a lot of work to do. I have some custom orders that I’ll be finishing up — some blog post writing to do. See? An ever-so-long list.

–As a side note, have you updated your links? Google Analytics and SiteMeter are telling me a lot of you are still visiting http://www.maggiewhitley.blogspot.com, which is incorrect. It will re-direct you to http://www.gussysews.com {which is why you may not realize this}. Consider updating the bookmarked link yourself?

–And another side note ;] Did you see that the Count Up grew?!

What are you doing this weekend?

{DaySpring giveaway}

This giveaway is now closed.

I’m working on a new series of blog, business, and organizational tips. I’ll be sharing things that carry Gussy through the busyness, along with answering your questions on the above topics. If you have a question, send it my way! But hurry, the series will be starting soon.

When things get really busy, how do you accomplish it all?

For me, I always make a to-do list, and some times I make a to-do list of my to-do list! I have learned over the last year just how helpful lists can be. Making notes of your daily tasks allows you to forget some of the little “things” so you can focus your energy on what is actually on your list.

When it’s clear what you need to accomplish it’s much easier to be productive. Amen? And then when you’ve been productive you can finally sit down with a cup of coffee and take some time for yourself, you can allow yourself to relax and reflect.

To celebrate success and our ability to dream and accomplish so much {thank you, LORD!}…

DaySpring and Gussy have partnered for a giveaway! Yeow! :]
