Well, we have had lots of ups and downs, to be expected. Threw the downs I find lots of new and exciting avenues to take. I can honestly say, I like the downs. Now that were on an UP I find my self going stir crazy. I have so many ideas I want to put into action, but need to pace myself. It sure would be nice to find an assistant. Until my little love bugs are more able I will have to cherish each and every moment with them. Poor me. (LOVE IT!)

So what am I talking about? Arts and crafts. Oh boring ol' A&C right? No. I have started up with simple, fun & beautiful items. Hair accessoris, we know I love this. Sewing kids clothing, nothing difficult. I have had so much fun. I am actually teasing with the idea of purchasing labels to actually sell some items. Crazy, I know. Where would I find the time to make anything to sell? Who cares? I have a passion and I might as well follow it and find where it takes me. This might be my only moment to be able to do this.

So since I love all things a&c, I have joined tuns and tuns of blogs. Yes, you can find more and more amazing ideas and get really crazy in the head reading them. With blog threads I read how some of these moms can paint a house, make dog tags, 200 dresses, plant the spring garden and cook healthy meals all in one week with little people. I can't even find the time to paint my finger nails. What is with this? My ideas are just this: It's normal for them. They must have grown up doing these things with there family and so it's everyday life. I am hoping to teach my children so they too can have these avenues as adults.
I can remember my very first sewing project. I wish I had a picture of it. A felt light bulb in 7Th grade home economics. I loved the idea of the light bulb. Most of my friends were doing a heart, or flower, or there first letter of there name. The boys were doing sports related items. I was so out side the box it made me feel powerful and awkward all at the same time. I can remember sitting in the back of the class room so know body would ask me questions about my choice. The light bulb made me laugh inside. I like that feeling.

I like having breathing room. It feels good. On my daily walk with Zoey today I had a quick phone conversation with a friend who I have been meaning to call for weeks. It was so nice to hear her voice. Then I bumped into my long time friends at DoItCenter and had a quick catch up. On the way up the hill I spoke with another sweet friend who I have been missing for a another quick catch up. It's a good day for me. I am starting to reconnect with the world. I like that.

I have been working on my kids resumes for years now. Well I have had a moment, and there in action now. I have my last tweek tonight before I print them up. Exciting!!! Who knows what will come of this. I do know they love being on stage so why not give it a try this summer? Right?!

I don't want you to think that it's all gravy, there's plenty of down sides as normal. I just choose to leave them out of this note for tonight. Just a little thought on all of this. I do believe when shit hits the fan, you can call the electrician and the electrician has been called, few.


  1. The pics of the girls are just GORGEOUS! Love them!
    And you so should open your own Etsy shop, have you looked into that?

  2. Hi! You found me. I can't even find me. I am googling how to set this place up. I am trying to find buttons to place things in areas instead of just adding blogs ontop of blogs. Thanks for your comment! I am thinking about that. First thing is first, figuring out how to get this place situated!
