Learning As I Go.....

I have added more headings to the right hand side of my blog for you all to look at. I am still learning about my blog site and about my Etsy shop and site. So, thank goodness for Google and other blogs, for they have pointed the way for me to learn as I go!

The three of us in this household are suffering from what I thought were seasonal allergies, but it seems to have turned into upper respiratory all of us. Girlfriend seems to be suffering the most, as they just do not make any good or safe decongestants for 3 year olds. While daddy and I can take Sudafed with our antibiotics, she is just taking her antibiotic.

Tonight I have to attend Girlfriends daycare/preschool as a guest speaker at their annual Kids Health and Fitness Night. I am speaking on Kids Food Allergies. You see, Girlfriend was 13 months old when we found out she had multiple food allergies (Milk, Egg, Peanuts, Tree-Nuts, Tomato, Beef and Chicken).......yes.....really. Long story short, I am now Girlfriends daycare food allergy "expert". Wish me luck for tonight, I need to go put on my makeup and be presentable and professional looking. You know.......not how I looked today at my full-time nursing job.........he he.

And, yes, I still know that there's nothing listed in my Etsy shop. Not that I do not have anything made......I just have not taken any pictures......or any good ones anyway.

Also......go and check out what Kerry Bogert blogged about today on her site today...... Love them!

Go forth and create! Have a great day!

Hello! The above pictures are from this weekends big Birthday Bash that lasted all weekend. On Friday my "baby" turned 3..............*SIGH*. Where does the time go?

We had a great weekend full of family, friends, 2 parties, gifts, pizza, cupcakes, balloons, Spongebob, bubbles, music, The Party Place, dancing, dress name it, we had it! We also had great weather.....I think Spring is here! YEAH!!!!

My mom came in from St. Louis. Next to "Nana", daddy and I are chopped liver. Nothing is a bigger favorite for Madelyn that her Nana! It was just all around a great weekend!

I also got to work on a lot of new jewelry pieces. I guess the weather, having my mom here and just an all around good weekend gave me the "creative fire", and designs were just flying! I still need to get the mother's rings done for the county health department. Which I will start on after posting today. I promise to take pictures and have the store open very soon!

In the mean time check out the right side of the blog and look at some of my favorite blogs and Etsy shops. It should keep you busy for awhile!

Happy Birthday Madelyn, mommy and daddy love you very much! You bring such joy, fun, laughter and love into our lives every day. You will never know what you mean to us!
Have a great day everyone! Go forth and create! Thanks for stopping in!

Starting Over!

All I can say is......"I Am Sorry!" I have internet again! A huge mix-up with the phone company (on their side I might add) and "pow", my internet is gone. Well, long story short, the phone company says that if the DSL is turned off, for whatever reason, and since we live in a new fiber-optic area, the internet can not be turned back on using the DSL line.....blah, blah, blah, the lines do not "run that way". So, I had no choice but to sign up for the new U-Verse internet. If I want internet, than this is all that is available. So, here we are.....back online and here I am saying I am sorry for being "offline" for so long!

So.....let us start over! I am still working on new items for my Etsy shop. I have so many mother's ring orders for my local county health department and for a previous customer who lost hers AND my baby girl is turning 3 this Friday and has TWO birthday parties coming up, that my Etsy shop has been put on the back burner.

And, even though I changed my employment status at the pharmacy from full-time to part-time, I am still working the same amount of hours and I have been given and finishing more new "projects".

So, I feel like my plate is full and I feel this overwhelming urge to create and craft at the same time. My husband has been playing around with our HP digital camera trying to get some "professional" looking pictures for the Etsy shop. One out of three looked just "ok". What a bummer. How can I post my beautiful creations on the shop with just "ok" pictures? Any help out there in Etsy or blog land? Please?

Well, enough for now. I have got to go and work more on Girlfriends birthday parties......ugh. Have a great day all! Go forth and create! Take care!
