I still haven’t found a way to organize myself. 😦 Like my mom used to say, “Do you think I’m an octopus?” The house is cluttered with books, beads and other junk. And no one knows where the garbage can is (actually they do, because it’s always full and no one empties it).
Anyway, I made these lovely earrings for my son’s teacher. It’s always the pieces I make for gifts that I want to keep for myself! ❤
When my friend told me that she had breast cancer, it came as a terrible surprise. My mother-in-law bought a Dammit Doll for her niece and I thought that would be a great gift for my friend so she can let out her aggressions on a doll! So I went to Hallmark to buy one. They didn’t have it, but they did have Cancer Dammit Dolls, which was more awesome! Then I made a necklace for her.
My friend loved it! She kept it in the hospital with her. But she had lost it in the hospital! Luckily, it was found. And get a doll for my mom as well for Mother’s Day, which I need to do soon.
If you want to get a Dammit Doll look for the link here. 50% of the profits go to cancer research.
My mom has cancer and I’m selling this on ebay and all of the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. There are also more I’m posting (in which not all of the proceeds will go to research), but this brand spanking new. My seller id: townsend1698 if you are interested in bidding.
Here is one of the projects that I have been working on. If you see the bags in the basket, those are beads that I have bought this year. I bought Jewelry Designer Manager to organize my beads. It only works on a pc so I have to buy software to make my Mac compatible. This means more money I don’t have. So I’m using Excel in the meantime to organize myself.
Anyway, this summer I’ve been taking pics of all the beads that were in the basket and been pricing them individually and then storing them. Which brings me to plan B: I need a larger drawer space to store my beads!
I’m cleaning out my stock and thought I should sell this jewelry and donate some of the money (up to %50) to American Red Cross, hoping that the money will go toward the tornado victims in OK. Please see my FB site for where you can find these on Ebay or email me: email@example.com.
The Taste of Shiloh didn’t go as well as I thought it would. First of all, my table was in the hallway, and the only time anyone paid attention to mytable me was when they wanted to know where the food was or where the bathroom was. I didn’t make any money that day! There were hundreds of people there that day too. I almost didn’t get my table at the Taste of Shiloh because someone forgot about me. Maybe it was God’s way of saying, don’t do it. But I emailed them my cancelled check and got a space at the last minute. Maybe this is why my table was almost out the door. In fact, it was near a door and I was cold the whole day.
Then I decided to take a cake decorating class. Why? I don’t know! I’ve always been interested in decorating cakes, but now isn’t the time. I’m trying to look for a job and this class keeps me busy. I got a call to take baby pics at hospitals, but we keep playing phone tag. Every time he calls, I’ve been busy. Actually the first time he called I didn’t recognize the number to I didn’t pick up. When he returned my call, I was on my way to class and my hands were full of baking supplies and baked goods so I couldn’t pick up the phone – I was also late. This is my last class so I will be able to breathe – not really.
Well I’m back with Guy Smiley as my teacher. He’s getting tougher than ever. It’s like there’s no trade-off when you get a different teacher. No redos or extra credit. We have to find our models (and one that will be nude). Most of the work we do is outside class time, but I have to schedule 2 photo sessions during class time. It sucks having to rely on other people to get your project complete. If your concept is horrible or you don’t follow directions, your grade will be affected big time. Blah, blah, blah…
I forgot that these photos were on my phone. Theses are from the arts and craft show last month. Sorry for the green tinted/blurry photo. You can’t win them all on the phone!
