I'm still here! and Etsy shop clearance....
I've been really quiet the past week or two. There were a few things I told myself I needed to take care of before I could blog and etsy again.
1)Taxes....oh the taxes.... I have finished my part and the tax lady will do the rest in an hour or so.
2)And then there is the situation of my beaders' butt.... yep, It's been getting worse these past few years as I have switched mostly to online sales verses doing all the set up and tear down of shows almost every weekend. It's funny, but the set up and tear down really was good exercise. So last week I got back on the wagon. I joined weight watchers again. I joined the first time 10 years ago. Things have changed. I hope I do well. 20 pounds-- It's a lot. I have a really crazy sugar addiction and when on a diet, I think of nothing else. So.... this may be the all food talk all the time blog, because I'm hooked on the junk! I find it takes a lot of time cooking for yourself to lose weight. I'll be obsessed for at least the next 3 months , look forward to it ;-)
3) The garden: I usually have a lot of stuff planted around St Patricks Day..... This year I didn't really get to it until last weekend. So now I have potatoes and peas and sugar snap peas and lettuces and onions and a couple of Blueberry bushes planted. I also got to meet a new friend. Jenn is a organic vegetable farmer/ ginormous pumpkin grower wizard. She showed me around her greenhouse and gave me a great couple of lessons on starting/ transplanting seedling. She showed me around her garden and we talked about driving your own business, talking business with customers and we talked about how be both have second jobs now but still drive our own businesses to do better etc... Then every day I've been messing around with my seedlings and garden.
4) and then there's the next trunk show.... It's a double--- I've been working on new standard sized donuts, YAY! they'll be done soon. and.... now that my portion of the taxes are done, I jumped out of bed and glazed some beads and loaded them up, and the kiln is firing right now.
OK! Tax time! Check out my clearance sale on etsy before next Monday!
