So I got a treasury today on etsy. You have no idea what that means, but it's really cool and I get to list some of my favorite things. You can only have one at a time and my first treasury is all cherries.
Check it out!!!

On another note Derrick's cousin is a jerk and isn't going to be at the hospital for his mother's surgery tomorrow. That is making me angry right now. Some day when it's too late that man is going to figure out what is important in life. Not his selfishness, that's for sure.

Derrick is currently on his way home, and I need to get to bed and turn off HGTV.

'night all... I'll catch up with you next time.

NIce easy day...

So it's Sunday... a day to rest. Derrick has taken Graham and they've headed off to see a Sidewinders game. It's Little League day at the park, free tickets. Graham is all set for a fun day with Dad. Gavin is going to have a great day, too! He's been invited to his friends birthday party... Adam. They are great friends and he's looking forward to a fun party. It's got a sports theme, and I think they are running relays and doing sports type games. It should be really fun.

I, on the other hand, will have a few hours to myself. whew!

I think I'm going to come home and work on a few baby quilts I've got lined up upstairs. I'll put pix up on my etsy site and make a new folder on my myspace. I'm thinking of having two etsy sites... many people do that... so that I can have my purses on cherrygarage, and have baby goods on cherrygaragetoo. Not sure yet.

Anyhow.... today should be a somewhat productive day.

I'm still ready and waiting for people to come look at the house.

We really need this thing to sell. ;-(

Going into the weekend....

Wow. This has been a crazy week. Gavin had a game tonight. He played well. His team played well... they won!

It's Friday night, Derrick is on his way home and all is right in my world. They boys went to bed exhausted at 10pm... Dutch is sleeping away and I just got a nice email from out real estate agent. I hope this house will sell so we can get on with our lives and start over again in California. I am so excited to be back home.

I've been thinking a lot about our family back home. Poor Ashley (our cousin's girlfriend) lost her father this week. She is such an amazing person, done amazing things with so much adversity. It makes me cry just thinking of the pain she's feeling for her family this week. Auntie Prudy is going in for surgery, it's serious and I'm nervous for her well being.

This has been a tough week. Thankfully it's almost over and we can start anew.

kisses.... ;-)

Stressfull week

So every night for the last few weeks seems to be dedicated to Little League Baseball. Going to Gavin's games is fun! The boys are strong and fast and they enjoy the game. There is one boy, however, who cries when he fails and throws a dramatic fit. That is not fun. I cannot stand a poor sport.

Graham's games are fun to watch for the comedy aspect of baseball. 5, 6 and 7 year old boys playing coach pitch baseball is silly and quirky and a joy to see.

My husband has been working the 3 to 11 shift. That sucks. Period. We see him for 10 minutes in the morning, he leaves before we all get home... and then he gets home after we've all passed out from exhaustion. Life is crazy when he's on this shift. He switches to the day shift again soon... life will return to normal.

I'm not getting in a creative mood this week.. I think I'm too tired. I have a baby quilt I get to make!!! and I can't get the steam rolling to finish it. I'm actually going to make a few... and post them on my etsy account. www.cherrygarage.etsy.com

Etsy.com is a website that is like ebay.... but for crafters. It's a site that allows only handmade goods and artsy vintage items. It's a fun forum and I'm enjoying have a "website" that is mine.

My "fun project" I spoke of in my last post may come to fruition. I'm excited about the future of this project. I still cannot share details... but I will when the time is right. The next step will start soon and I'm very excited. In the mean time I'm going to make something every day for my etsy site (once I'm not working).

Oh... and I'm starting another personal project next monday but I don't want anyone to know about that till i'm done with it. It takes a month... you'll have to wait.

So here I am. I started a blog. I have no idea what I'm doing or what will become of it. It's a way to talk about what's going on with me and my family and my creativity and my insanity. I may not let anyone know it's here. I may shout it to the world. I don't know yet.

All I know is that I feel this great surge of something big coming my way. I don't know if it's the move (my family is moving to California)... my purses... or the other big project that I was introduced to that I can't type about here. I don't know. But I feel it in my bones that something, something BIG is coming my way. I feel the creative juices boiling and moving forward into making my passion strong.

I am nervous and excited and happy. I am also stressed and tired and confused.

It will all work out.
