I am well, I have missed you, and I am coming back on the blog I think ;)

I just wanted to visit and say that I am going to be posting again! I have written a book, been taking care of myself, and tending to my life. My health was not the best (fat and run down) and I have been changing that. I want to be healthy.

Tired of being tired, I wanna grow old like my parents, they live a full life and they are my idols and still dancing and loving life at 76. My mother looks more like my sister now!

My grand-daughter is getting big, she is 4 and a wonderful child. I don’t see her as much as I used to, but will be starting to watch her time full again this week. Her mother is going after her dream and I am so proud of the changes my “little girl” has made in her life. Going back for her high school equivalency at 30, damn, I am so proud of my girls, such wonderful women, my gifts.

She is now going to continue her education for the next 11 months.

I am going to post things that are more general here, about me, my life, my family and what I do to create.

It has been a long time and I need to get familiar with the program again.

I have missed you!

Here is the first tip of the day.

I save the lids from canned frozen juice, (Oh hell, why lie? I save everything.)
I love their perfect circle-ness. I just knew there were things I could do with them. I love to recycle when ever I can, I think we should, and I have been saving these for a while. They are just hanging out and falling in front of me all of the time. LOL!

I am going to share this once in a while so you can expect that.

Do you save them?

Have you got a good application for them?

Have they never even crossed you mind?

Will they now??

LOL!!

Here is one.

I use them to mix small batches of epoxy

Update and apology!

I am so sorry to leave you all hanging.

I was in a creative blizzard. I could not stop making things. I adore that!

 

This is a new heart. I am deep in to this series, I call them “hearts of stone”.

I am also in to making quite a few sacred hearts right now.

I did a new steampunk unzipped heart with an angel, I absolutely love this one.

There is more too.

We were training a new employee

 

She is quite friendly.

LOL!!

And so willing to be helpful.

Training this new employee is taking up most of my time and she is very busy and wants to know everything.

The only problem is no one understands her on the phone!

I love this picture of Madi, she would rarely play with this adding machine until we plugged it in. Now she loves it.

I made a couple of trades with people and have been working on those. I can’t show you pictures because they haven’t gotten them yet.

One is another version of… HEARTS, go figure.

I don’t need to get smacked with a 2 by 4 to know I deep in to this heart thing.

I have also gotten addicted to Etsy Treasuries, I love making them. I love looking at them and I love talking to people afterwards. Who would have thunk it?

Here they are to look at.

I really want to do this all day but I finally had to put the computer down.

There is so much talent out there and some really interesting things, it just amazes me.

I am trying to do an hour each day for clutter clearing and getting rid of things, reorganizing the house, cleaning and making things easier around home. I usually start with an hour and then find I am doing way more than that.

I have a very hard time with deciding which to let go of.

Like how many cheese graters do I really need, could I use them for an art thing, I will think of something to do with this tomorrow and then I do, my recycling heart says don’t you dare get rid of that. LOL!! you see my dilemma don’t you? And is it really clutter clearing if you move it from your house to your studio?

Life is just expanding and I have a hard time managing everything.

I am cutting back trees and bushes, trying to get rid of the extra there too. I haven’t done much gardening this year and it feels good to get outside.

We have been so very lucky here to have wonderful and mild weather and I am just loving it. I am so grateful and I hope it continues.

I have my own personal summer wherever I go, so any extra is just to much.

It is actually cool and nice. We might be the only place that is though from what I hear!

Stay cool all of you!

We do though have a mockingbird that thinks it is still night in the morning with the june and july gloom. He never shuts up. He must be exhausted.

My life has been busy, but my blog friends are never far from my mind.

I do get to stop by once in a while and sometimes even leave a brief comment, but when I look at the calender I realize I haven’t commented in a long time. I do read the blogs a lot when I have the time in the morning when Madi is down for a little nap (very little). I also have to cram so many other things in that time too.

What I want to know is “how did I do this before?”

I have finally figured out why you should not have children at this time of your life.

I was beating my self up for not reading all of the blogs and visiting, but I was also finding that I needed to sleep. Not just my usual 6 hours, but sometimes 8 or 9. I am just plain tired when I finally go to sleep and boy do I sleep well. So the sleepless nights from menopause are somewhat eliminated with watching this child.

I apologise for my absence, and thank you for sticking with me in my vacancy, I will be back!

I want to welcome all of my new followers, thank you!

Love and hugs to you all my pretties!!
