Busy...Busy...Busy...That's me!

Ya know when your sick and everything gets put off and sometimes is forgotten...

...like chores, errands to run and important calls to make...well I kinda forgot ALL of them and today and yesterday have been spent catching up and TCB (taking care of business). I had to start by cleaning and getting the "germs" outta here...I spent a lot of time on my lil area in the bedroom and I rearranged my dresser "junque"...I love the way it looks now...especially at night...romantic...huh!?! So now I've got some more chores to catch up on, lots of errands to run and a few more calls to make. Being sick makes for busy work when you're feeling better...Oh well...I'd rather be busy and tired then Sick and in bed!

Lil Crepe paper Lovelies

I've been seeing cute little crepe paper "goodies" everywhere. Soo when I was getting my birthday decorations out and ready for my kids party I decided to try and make a couple lil lovelies of my own...I'm hooked. I love the way they look and you could make them for just about anything. I made a Hello Kitty one to put on my daughters present, and another "Just Married" one with vintage lace, and a "celebration" one with a lil mirror on it...too cute. I'll be making more and listing them on etsy this week. I have some really neat ideas for Halloween Stuff (it's never to early to think about Halloween)!

One Hundred Wishes

I love this place...One Hundred Wishes I decided to get a few lil things at her shop, since I've been ogling them for quite awhile, and I received my "goodies" yesterday! WOW...she sure does make you feel special. I felt like a little princess at her birthday party. I was so excited and she even threw in some "sweet" extras! Andrea has done an amazing job with her online shop. I will be shopping there again...soon...real soon! I need to get me some "WiSH" tickets and gold Tinsel.

Creative Souls & GROOVY clothes!

I was recently invited to join an online community started by my friend Izabella. I love being able to meet and be inspired by new artists. It is also a great networking opportunity, I need all the help I can get. I am not being as productive as I would like to be, but right now I'm focusing on other areas of my life that need help...like my health. I am hoping to create later tonight, and I've set up a schedule for myself so I can try and get in a couple of nights of "creation" time a week. I need to get in the habit of setting up my shop by devoting time to it like a job. I need to take pictures, add items, design layouts for the many different pages of my site. So I figure if I set a schedule and work on all of these areas for 2-3 hours a day a couple of days a week, soon I'll be done. I know it sounds like it would be easy to do, but for me it's NOT! I have to juggle my time between 3 kids, my hunny and chores, and I babysit another lil boy 2 days a week. I hardly have time for them, much less ME. I usually feel so crummy by the time evening comes that I can't even do all that I NEED to do. OK enough whining... that took a turn I wasn't expecting. Bottom line is I am treating it as a JOB. A job that I have to work on 10-15 hours a week. A job that If I want it to be successful, I need to make time for it...RIGHT! So here goes...
