My kids corner on SALE

Well decided I better close my kids corner section in my shop before Feb 2009 so I have slashed all the prices so they will move fast. Which has work all ready sold some so better get what you want fast before they are all gone.

Will really miss making the pillowcase dresses and the baby leg warmers. They are so much fun to make and imagine the little ones showing them off.

How sad to think that they might put lead in material.

So will have some free time on my hands so will have to find another cool project to work on.

My Zipper Wallets

Well its a great day when you have a special order for one of your items you make and they are going to a B&M place in Maine.

She ordered 24 of my large zipper wallets and I got them done way before I had quoted but then when you don't have a job anymore you have loads of time to get things like that done.

Anyway I listed them last night and she bought them this morning. I will be shipping them out in the morning cause the mail has all ready came here and can't get back into town to the post office.

I'm so excited I just had to blog about it plus post the pictures of the ones I made for her.

I hope I get to do it again. My family will enjoy it tons cause they get to eat all the stuff I had to empty in zip lock bags so I could have the labels. So now I have everyone I know saving bags of stuff so I can cut up the labels and use them the next time I get a big order. My family can only eat so much plus my counter can only hold so much LOL.

Yeap its a great day tater I'm still on cloud 9. Its just as much fun as when I won the sneak attack on this thread . Every Wed. a store is pick and anyone that wants to play buys just from that shop. It was the most I had ever sold in one shot and was up till 1am getting everything packaged up and ship out. Couldn't sleep anyway cause of being so excited LOL.

I wish the best for everyone that reads this blog and a ton of sales.

Its a GREAT day

Why you ask cause its my Birthday LOL. To old to tell you what my age its but let just say I'm over 50.

So went out for breakfast with my daughter and her husband then went and got a load of stone for the drive way. Sounds like fine LOL well at least I don't have to put it in the drive. The boys are doing that for me.

Later this afternoon will be going to my mom's for a birthday dinner. My bother and sister and their family will be their to enjoy mom's Great ribs.

My son even called me yesterday. I think he thinks my birthday is the 7th LOL. That's ok at least he called. He lives in NC so don't get to see him anymore.

It is so cold here with the wind blowing and they are talking snow showers but it won't stick cause the ground is to warm yet. Thank God for that.

Everyone have a great day and a lot of sales on etsy today. Its my wish to you for my Birthday.

Don't forget to VOTE

I'm voting when my daughter gets home from work. She doesn't want to go by herself so I'll wait for her.

Did list some new items in my etsy shop. Its a purse organizer . I use them and just love it.

Plus been super busy with the truck load of corn we got out of the field that was cool. Driving up to the corn picker and have it empty a ton of corn really a ton of corn in my son in laws pick up. Yeah his truck can hold it LOL.

Built a box to store it in then had to run it all through a screen to get the red dog that's what they call the red stuff that flies in the air and reminds me of fish scales and other stuff you don't want burning in your corn burner. Took about 2 hours to get that unloaded. But its done and should have enough corn stored for about 3 months now. Then I get to do it all again joy joyLOL.

Plus help my son in law dry wall their barn/house because I felt bad that he help me so much over the weekend and didn't get anything done in their. I told them I would help hang the dry wall. Thank God its not a very big place LOL. We did get the kitchen done which runs into their living room and got most of that done. Now just have to finish around the stairs and then go up into the loft bedroom and drywall that. That I hope won't take to long even though a lot of stuff is still being stored in their so have to move that all out and put is some place. That's the kicker putting all that stuff some place LOL.

Will be busy again. Dang I have to find a job so I can rest.

The son in law was going in the corn field behind the house with a bucket and its pitch dark mind you. Three rows in and I hear this bang (thinking what the hell was that) next I see him running grabbing the the big poll in the yard swing around that falling grabbing the pool solar cover rail falling trying to get up trying to say something and nothing is coming out of his mouth falling again finally makes it to me and tells me to get in their barn house and finally he tells me him and coyote were face to face.
It was price less now that its all over and nothing happen. His eyes were HUGE and he couldn't run cause he kept falling trying to get up fall get up trying to run.
OMG I'm still laughing about it.
We have about five of them right now but I heard their are about 20 around here in a pack.

The other morning at 4:30 they wake me up cause the killed something cross the street and they had to let everyone know. Man that was scary. They are getting way to close to the house.

Field Corn

As in a pick up truck load of field corn . Ya took me 2 hours to unload the truck all by myself I might add. Put it in a make shift crib area so its not all rolling around on the ground.

I started to husk some of it till Ellen came on so had to come in a watch her.

Now my body is talking to me and telling what THE HECK did you just put me through. LOL

I'm so out of shape but the even if I was in shape and 20 years younger I think my body would still be Bitching at me about it. LOL

I'm hoping that I come out with about a months worth of corn for my corn burner which would save a lot. It goes through a big bag a day runnin 24/7 to heat the house.

It smells really good outside when the wind blows the corn smell by you. Better then the wood smell.

Dang Ellen is almost over so that means I back out husking corn. LOL

7 Years

Well today is my 7th wedding anniversary.

Take the hub to Red Lobster today. Had a gift card from last year or I wouldn't be able to afford it.

So looking forward to eating their. I love those rolls and that cheese bread bowl they have.

I can't believe I have remember to blog today. Well I wouldn't have but I seen a thread on etsy about if you blog today LOL so I thought I would blog today.

I did open a new shop the other day
Not sure how well it will do but it is free so thought I would give it a try. Not to thrilled about how you set it up but after you get use to it I guess its not bad.

I hope it takes off so I can have another place to put my handmade items and won't have to pay fees unless you want to. The listings only last 30 days but for free that's pretty cool.
They haven't been open that long so I know it will take time to get people shopping their.

I will still stay at etsy but I learn way back not to put all your eggs in one basket.

So if you read my blog stop by and have a look see. I only have 3 items listed so far but will be listing more.

I think I read where they will be advertising a lot real soon so that's a plus.

Well dang ended up typing more then I thought I would LOL.
