Weekend of BUSY!

This will be a weekend of busy!
Starting with Friday and a shopping trip to Walmart to purchase things that Cherise (my daughter) will need in her new apartment! That was fun! Pots, Pans, Towels, Sheets.. all the little things you dont think of .. till you need it!
Saturday was off to a slow start .. kind of lazy! But off to my sisters house to see my nephews their kids and say goodbye to a dear friend and his family who are moving away. SO it will be a day of little kids, big kids, kisses, hugs, laughs and swimming! No tears because it is a happy move! Also saying see ya.. to my son who will be moving to NJ in a week! Then my studio work begins!
Sunday is moving day! Cherise, Larry and Justin move in the apartment! Of course I will go to help... but Im not picking up boxes! I will point and direct!
Hopefully in this busy time I will be able to do something creative for me! Well I was able to blog and for this I am happy! Have a great weekend.. oh and check me out on Creative Souls! Badge is to the right at the bottom!

Hot as ususal in Arizona. So I was happy to spend most of the weekend at home in the cool A/C. I am lucky because I love my apartment. One of the things that helps to foster this love is the fact that the A/C is FREE! Yes FREE! However it is done, it is included in my rent. So my electric bill is at the highest $45!! YEAY! Being a one income person, this is a huge blessing. SO having said that..

I have done some sewing this weekend. I am trying to finish my latest apron. Working with Chiffon on an apron is not as easy as I would have liked but it is almost done.

Just a few more weeks and I will have my studio back. I will happily post some pics when it is put together. I have wonderful ideas for it.. just a matter of finding time to do them all!

Well thats it for right now. I will keep things updateded as possible!

Plans for the weekend

Great! A three day weekend for ME!! I have Monday off and I plan to use it wisely!! Since I am getting my studio room back I will be going through my "stash" and purging. Then, I bought this great paint at Loew's. It is an interior wall paint BUT.. it was an "OOPS" color, so instead of a gallon at $28 I got it for $7!! and it is a pretty "tiffany" blue. I will use it for some ugly black furniture! FUN!!! Now if I can just paint before the temps reach 115! We shall see.

Making more!

Hi all..

Rough week at the 9-5 job! I am still trying to figure out how I can be home and work my craft and make enough money to live on! If anyone has any ideas.. PLEASE let me know!!

Very excited to say a young lady at the 9-5 asked for some specific pieces that I have made! I will also make her some coasters. She is such a sweet young lady. Very fun personality.
I will post pictures as soon as I can figure out how to do it.! Robert won't help me find the plug for his camera and Cherise said she needs software for me to use hers! Ugh.. I need one of my own.
Okay well I am off to play!
Happy night all .. I may post again over the weekend!
