I changed my blog Layout and added a few things, what do you think? I am not a computer geek so I have to do everything by trial and error. I am still not sure I got it right but it is a start. Cupkake helps me a lot. She has spent a lot of time on the computer and has learned a lot about setting up blogs, etc. I found a way to put my YouTube on here so I am learning.
Well Halloween is here. Happy Halloween everyone!!!

I posted yesterday and it is not here. Probably a good thing because I was griping about customers, retail, etc. Today I am over being angry and just ready to start a new day. I had posted a board that I like so it is gone also. This week is almost over and Sunday I am going to look for a new place to live, in a new town, it will be a new start. Here is my board I posted yesterday.

I just wish I could be off today. I rarely get a Sat off but today would be nice. Working retail means that I have to work Sat but thank goodness our company closes for Sunday. We are making some changes in our store which is causing an uproar but will be fine when we are through. We are getting our own delivery truck and the warehouse guys will be doing deliveries 3 days a week. Plus working in the office and the sales floor. We are putting everyone to work selling, doing office work, warehouse, etc. It causes some difficulty, one employee thinks he should get to pick what he wants to do and he and I have had to butt heads about it. Guess who will win! Have a good Sat and enjoy the nice weather.

Woke up this morning to peace and quiet. It is such a difference with the grandkids gone, I miss them. I miss the I love yous, and the goodmorning nana, gighaw. But I am also enjoying the quiet. It is getting cooler now at night. I still run the ac for my husband but I get an extra blanket for me. I really hate to see winter come. I love the fall when the weather is not as hot as it has been but it passes so fast. Then the cold chilly weather is upon us and everyday is cold. Also I am being transfered to Marshall, and I have got to start packing and finding a place to live. I think I picked the wrong time to accept a transfer, we shall see. Marshall will put me in an area close to all my kids. But Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Hancocks will be further away so I will probably save money!

This is a jewelry display board from Cupkakeartillery and my Memory Board. We used the same fabric to coordinate the boards.
What do you think? It is Turquoise and Chocolate Fabric from the project runway line. I love it but then I am a fabric junkie I love all the fabric I work with.

Free at last!! My son, dnl & 3 grandkids moved to their own house. I lov em but it is time. The house is so quiet but it is a nice quiet. So we had leftovers and just enjoyed the computer and tv. Also today my store inventory was super! I was so excited to have done so well! My supervisor said it was the best inventory he had from all his stores. I am so pumped. I will be posting a new board tomorrow.

It is a cool Monday, it is suppose to warm up today. I love fall, not too crazy about winter tho. I am going to make two new boards today if possible. I kept the grandkids yesterday while my son and dnl moved and didn't get too much done. I enjoy them but they are a handful. I was ready for mom and dad to come home so I could watch some tv and relax. I will post the new boards I am making as soon as I finish them.

Did ya ever see the rain? It rained all the way to Shreveport. I usually don't mind the rain but I don't really like to drive in it especially when I have to drive some of the smaller roads.. People are crazy! They either drive so fast they try to run you down or they drive so slow that 55 mph would be a great speed to be at. You can't pass them because of the traffic, you just have to turn the music up and roll with the flow. There is about 30 miles of road like that that I had to drive on from ARK to Shreveport and at 7 am there are school buses, trucks, people trying to get to work and then there is "Drive Slow Joe" taking his time, he has all day, 45 mph is a good speed for him in the rain. I made it to my meeting with 5 min to spare. But had to get my blood pressure under control before I could enter the building. Therefore no crafting for me yesterday!

Gotta go to Shreveport for a meeting, I would rather be crafting! Last night I made a board for Cupkakeartillery and I must say I love it. As soon as she gets pics of it, I am going to post it on my blog. She sold her first jewelry board! I think they look great with her pez earrings. We spent yesterday at Michael's and Hobby Lobby, then went home after picking up the boys from school. We watched a movie then I spent a long time on the computer. I should have been sewing! I have Halloween pants for the boys to make and a little pants and shirt for the granddaughter to make. Like I said before I have a fabric and button addiction! I shopped at Hancocks for Halloween fabric, bought several yards then went Walmart for more Halloween fabric. I make candy bags for my kids and grandkids and friends for Halloween. It has become a tradition of sorts. They expect it!

I spend far too much time on Etsy. com but I just can't help myself. There are so many talented crafters out there. Take Beadedartillery's earrings on the right. Or Cupkakeartillery's on the left. These and much more can be found on Etsy. Check out these and Kayskrafts and Kaysbaby on etsy.com. The crafters on etsy spend much time putting together their crafts, pricing it to sell, and their imagination is outstanding. So many things that they can think of to sell. Check them out and tell them I sent ya!

Here are a few items that you might find interesting, Beadartillery has some really nice jewelry that is not too expensive. She likes to try new things and works with different colored beads. I think you will find her etsy store to be filled with some nice things. Take a look.
Cupkakeartillery has really come up with some cute things and her jewelry displays are great!

Cupkakeartillery has been selling these like hotcakes. They are so cute and now she had the perfect board to keep your jewelry on. The Pez earrings come in many colors and the boards come in different sizes and fabrics. She can fix you up. The boards are made with canvas to hold several earrings and hooks can be added to hang your necklaces. She is quite talented. Check it out!
They are so cute!

I made two boards, one is a republican board the other is a democrat board. I check the views on etsy and my republican board is ahead of the democrat board not by much but enough. It has continued to stay ahead of the democrat board since I posted them on etsy. What do you think? They haven't sold but I get plenty of views so someone is looking. I just thought that was interesting. It is kind of my own poll. Anyway here they are.
