I was all excited yesterday. I would set up a series of rules for my e-mail so the appropriate e-mails would be filed and it would be easy to find them. I've used rules before but haven't set them up in a while. So if you signed up for a class and cursed me when I asked that you send one e-mail per class, it's for that reason.
I set up the rule and hit APPLY. Oh - I think something went wrong. It moved all my unread e-mails to the new folder. Oops! Then I thought I had lost everything, but no, that didn't happen. And I should state (although you probably already know this) that I have a LOT of e-mails. Many of them need to be deleted, but there's no time for that. All the e-mails are back in the right spot.
I got rid of a folder that I didn't need. It was called Important and basically created a duplicate of everything that came in. I don't need that. I Googled it, and it's gone. Then I realized that at Noon, my e-mail stopped receiving. I can send e-mails, but I can't receive them. I was online with support last night, and she said my password needed to be changed. Well, I didn't get a notice about an issue with the password.
I won't bore you with all the details. Let's just say that I can send e-mails, but I still can't receive them - at least not on my home computer. Sigh............ I'll be back with the support people this morning after the walk. I know it's not because of that folder I deleted - there's something that's preventing the e-mail from coming in. GRRRR!!
Needless to say, that entire exercise took way longer than I had planned on, and I only got the UFO group organized. I hope to get the rest of them done today. I learned a few tricks about Outlook yesterday, so that was good. If I get the e-mails coming in, I'll be golden!!
For this year, that's another goal - to get my e-mail under control, including the number of e-mails in the inbox and what e-mails I have signed up for. It's going to happen! I swear these e-mails that get sent daily and with the SAME thing for sale drive me nuts. I know - UNSUBSCRIBE. It's going to happen. Why can't these companies send ONE e-mail per week? That would be perfect - then more people would open them.
The other thing I need to get under control is the mess in the office. Well, no more talk - let's get some action going here. Here's the tabletop - yep - a bit of a mess there. Lots of paper, but I'll get through it. My goal for the moment is to try and get everything off the floor.

|Another trouble spot|
|Decorative dress forms|
|Ceramic decorative button|
|Quick + Easy Quilts|
I quilted it with invisible thread in a spider web design.

|Spools of thread as color inspiration|

Well, I've got a lot of work to do today. I need to get all those groups organized, and the e-mail needs to be fixed, and I've got sewing to do!!
Have a super day!!!!
