Because of this it means there is no time left to sit and relax on the fur lined pitty pot. I am taking a new approach to life. What I have been doing the last 10 years didn't work, so I will try something else.. I call it, the Know... I know things, I know about stuff, I know who I am.. so I will live the Know.
I will take pleasure in ME. If it means that all I do on a weekend is play in my art studio, then fine, I will play.. but I will no longer wait for anyone else to make me feel worthy.
If mr. right, rather than mr. right now, comes along fine. If he doesn't, I can say I loved hard, lost hard and lived hard. He will have to match my passion for life, so far he has not shown up with that passion.
I fixed my art room. I love it! I will be spending more time in there. Alone, and that is okay...

I have TONS of things I keep picking up at estate, yard sales and thrift stores. I buy them and say OH! I can sell this... well it's about time I did! So I am!
My home is FAR from looking like something on Hoarders (THANK GOD!) but if I dont sell some stuff I can't go buy more stuff to sell! I have self imposed this rule. I will be able to buy one thing for every two I can sell. This way I will stay ahead of the "stuff' and not worry about a intervention from A&E! lol!!
So check out my ETSY shoppe:

Today was a great day! I was going to stay home and not venture into the hot and humid (yes humid) Arizona day. BUT when I woke up I thought I would take the time to do something that I have not done in a while.. a trip to the GOODWILL Clearance center. I LOVE that place!
It is an amazing store that is the last stop for all things from Goodwill. After this they destroy or trash EVERYTHING! The saddest sound I have heard is all the glass things being broken. I dont know why they dont donate all those things to homeless shelters and such but Im sure there is a business reason.
BUT.. I do my part to save the things I can afford and the things I have room for. I also look for things that I can sell on EBAY. I dont have a store on Ebay but I do enjoy selling stuff I find.
SO today I was there from 10am until 3pm!! It only felt like I was there an hour!
I found some Johnny Mathis records that I think are sellable (I researched them on my phone before buying). I also found a cool waterproof camera sellable, and some cute vintage childrens aprons. BUT most importantly I met a very nice lady who enjoys thrifting and creating as much as I do! We talked for about a 1/2 hour and exchanged our information. I hope we can get together and have coffee or create !
Well time for me to hit the hay.

It has been quite a while since I have posted anything. I apologize.
I really do want to be more organized and focused on my blog.. I promise I will try!
So many things going on around here!.
My daughter moved back home ..I am so happy to have her here! We are great friends. We laugh, giggle and talk like we are both in high school! But to have something we enjoy, sometimes we must give something else up. SO I gave up my craft room for my girl. Really nothing, and I mean nothing, is more important to me then my children. So with a little clever moving around, I now do my sewing in the living/dining area. I dont mind at all. I did put away all my "other" craft things, I will get to them another time.
I am very thankful that my Mom is doing okay. My parents were here for Christmas and mom was having some issues. When they got back home she talked to the doctor and has had triple bypass surgery. She is doig good. My amazing sister has been there with them since the surgery. I am so happy she retired and is able to be there with them.
As for me well... I am still working (yuck) and still creating. My latest kick are purses. I am selling them here and on Facebook and soon at my Etsy shop. I really would love to be able to stay at home and support myself with my craft. That is my goal and I will make it happen!
I hope you are all well and I will blog again soon!
