Monday Updates on Tuesday!

I have been missing in action pretty much for the last week. I tried to post things that I thought interesting, but there was no person behind the post most of the time. Love that scheduling the posts thing.
I had two classes over the weekend.

Last week it was down to the wire and I forget how much time it takes to raise a child, I forget that I am older and do not have quite the unlimited fountain of youth at my back to stay up all hours of the night and keep going for days on end, while taking care of my grand-daughter, cooking food, doing dishes and laundry, I did skip the cleaning though ;-D, feeding the animals, meetings, emails, writing, editing, and planning, and all of the other things that is takes to make sure every one is happy in my classes and happy at home!
Well, I did do most everything I needed to do while going to bed at a decent hour, taking care of family, the blog, taking care of Madi, and everything else my life has become.
All of them are important to me so there was no ignoring them.
Being self-employed is wonderful and I only have to work half day, any twelve hours will do!
A couple of things were not completed or forgotten, but all in all I had a wonderful time at my classes with wonderful people.
The pictures that I have, show them either in deep concentration or laughing and that I figure is a pretty good sign.
I am thanking out loud Kelly and Howard for being an awesome support team and helping when I needed it most.
Thank you so much to all of the people who travelled to take my class. I really enjoyed myself and it is a pleasure to have gotten to know you all a little better.

To my Blog Buddies, Thank you for your comments while I was away and I missed you all.
I hope to get around to some of the blogs this week. Hope you all had a great Memorial day here in the U.S.
Have a great week this week. Blessings all over you all.

I am listing  the Rodrigo Borgia Switch plate now.

I am also putting up a new listing of some vintage chain in the Hoarders Closet, this is a small delicate chain that comes in gold and silver and is in 25 meter spools. I have never had this one up there before. This chain will work well with 24 gauge non-tarnish silver and non-tarnish gold artistic wire, the wire will fit in to the little loops too!


  1. Wow, you're a life saver......I needed the silver chain and there you are with just the right one. So I ordered it. tah dah.
    Don't I know the name of the dance you are preforming with Maddy, and hearth and home, getting jobs done.
    Continued good luck withthe balancing act.
    Hey if you get a chance, come by my blog and enter my 2nd anniversary giveaway of some of my mermaids I made. The Olde Bagg

  2. Oh I love that!! Thank you Linda.
    I wish you good luck with the balancing act too. It is tiring sometimes, but I am grateful to be a part of their lives on a daily basis. If I do not get too tired I always see it like that, if I get tired my head talks s--t, not good!
    I am on my way. Mermaids? Yes!!
    Blessings all over you and your extended family.

  3. It looks like there was plenty of fun and creativity at your classes, marie. I hope you aren't too worn out and that you had fun too.

  4. It was a great time with great people. I am tired, I am trying to answer my comments and keep nodding out LOL!!
    It was worth it though.

  5. Oh I wish I had read this post earlier! I made a steampunk collection and this switchplate would have been perfect. Next time! :) I wish I could balance things a bit better, too. So glad to hear you had a great time during the classes!

  6. The balancing is the hardest part isn't it Theresa??
    Here is to us all finding that in life, in every part of life!

  7. It seems as we get older we learn how to prioritize what really has to be done. I admire you and all that you do get done every day with a little one. That isn't easy. Kudos to you!


I am so glad you stopped by. Please leave your words of wisdom. I look forward to them and I so enjoy reading them all.
Live to love, Love to create, and create to connect.
