Hump Day!!!

Wednesday!! maybe it doesn't mean much to most but I am in retail and this is my day off ! I am loving it! This month has been so slow, I guess with school starting parents are just trying to get the kids settled in school. I know I went shopping this morning and it was so quiet, it was unusual. I am trying to come up with some new board ideas, I just have been too busy to put something together. Here is one I have done:

What do you think?

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

Last Day of My Vacation

Can't believe this is it. I waited all year to take a week off from work and here I am, seeing the last day pass quickly by. Ugh!

Isn't this a cute idea! Cupkakeartillery created this set of earrings. They are so cute! Check out her other jewelry!

All I need is a cold beer!

I took a week's vacation from my job and have not been able to craft so I think I just want a cold beer and just relax for the rest of my vacation. I had planned on doing quite a bit of crafting and getting several quilts made for new babies, but instead I traveled across Texas to see my mom. Since I got back I have done a little but I have had other things to do, so I am going to sit back, drink a cold beer and plan my next week's vacation.

This is my newest memory board, it is a street scene with cafes, hotels and people walking down the street. The colors are dusty rose, pinks, greens, beiges.

What do you think about....

This is a set of burp cloths I have made for a co-worker. I have been using several different collage materials to make burp cloths for that die hard fan. I think these are really cute.
I got an email that another etsyian had used these on her store site but was shutdown. She had stole my pics and description. Her store was RockADoodle.
Tell me what you think.

Its too hot!!!

Hot much longer till we get some rain and cool this town off. It is over a hundred everyday, you walk out to the car during the day and you burn. My contacts just stick to my eyes. Customers come in complaining about the heat but are grateful to come in where it is cool, even for a few minutes. We brought a massage chair in to the store to sell and I set it up by the office. Everyone that comes in has to turn it on and sit for a 20 min massage. It is something else! We laugh with them when the the airbags tighten down on the legs and massage the feet and legs. It sometimes tightens so much they can't move and they start to laugh about how they trapped. I tell we use the shaking part to collect loose change that is in their pockets. It has been fun.
Maybe I will start to sell some boards as soon as it starts to cool down.

I don't really know how to blog!!

My dnl agrees it is like writing in a diary. I am finding it a bit easier but still not comfortable. Today is my day off and I am trying to write some on my blog. Grandma Betty gave me some good pointers for my boards and I plan to use them. She sd to take pics of my boards on the wall so it would show how they look hanging. I had just started hanging them on a fence so I could take a pic and think she is right about it. I enjoy making them. My daughter went to work at a call center and took one of my boards to hang in her cubicle. I had quite sales from that.
I am enjoying my day off.

A Quick Trip to West Texas!

I got a call from my step dad that he was in the hospital and I needed to come out so I could take care of my mom. This is not an easy trip because it is clear across the state of Texas from my house to her house. I had to make arrangements at work to get a couple of days off then we packed and took off. It took 8 plus hours and that was with a heavy foot and only gas stops. Well, he was home and doing fine so after a short 2 day visit we headed back. I was surprised to see how green it was in West Texas and all those windmills. Hundreds of Wind Power Turbines.
The traffic wasn't too bad and the weather stayed pretty good. Only it was hot!

I came back hoping I had some boards sold, but no luck. It has been slow. Anybody got any ideas that could help my sales? I am willing to listen.
