Rest And Relaxation Time I Needed

I took the time to just relax yesterday with a good movie rental. I just watched "Catch & Release" with Jennifer Garner. It was sad with a happy ending type of movie. I wont say anymore about it just that it was good and I really enjoyed it!!! I love going to the movies to relax and watch a good movie. That's one of the ways for me to relax since my workshop is on our property and it's very hard to seperate it from my personal life and stop working! It seems I am always doing some kind of business work as long as I am at home. Does this happen to you working from home? Have you found something that works and would you please share it with us? Leave us a comment.

I have some exciting news!!! I just got invited to sell my raggedy ann dolls through a shop out in Fullerton, CA. So you gals that have been asking me if I sell my dolls out in the L.A./Orange County area I will be soon!!! I will send an email out to you gals that have been asking and I will post here. To let you know when my raggedy ann dolls are all set up at the shop.

I also have been busy posting some of my wood signs on ebay I thought I would give it a try. I have some new sign ideas I want to try on ebay. I get very excited when I list an item up for auction to watch the bidding going on. You never know till the end what you will get for the item. Sometimes I am surprised at the end of the auction how much I got for the item. : ) I can't help it, it doesn't take much to excite me I guess!!!

Have A Great Holiday Weekend Everyone!!!

Busy Busy Fun Week

Well I had a very busy week last week and I will be having another busy one this week. I had two craft shows last week and lots of orders. My good friend Glenna took my raggedy ann dolls to her craft show and I sold out there. She is such a great friend, she is taking my dolls this coming weekend to another of her shows. So I have to make alot more dolls this week. I will be sewing away, but I do enjoy it!!! I will be listing more dolls soon. I just got done designing more new primitive raggedy anne dolls for you all. I will post here on my blog when I list them.

I took some time out Sunday and Monday to play. I had my lil granddaughter and grandson over on Sunday we watched videos together and played. My granddaughter just turned one year old last month. She just loves to dance whenever she hears music any music even the cell phone ringer will get her moving. She is so cute she just makes us laugh all of the time! My grandson decided it was time to spend the night over at grandma's house.

He is so cute the way he asks me if it's ok to stay with me. He will be 4 years old this month his a lil boy now not a baby anymore. They do grow so fast just like our own kids did. So I try to spend as much time with them both. On Monday we all went(daughter, granddaughter, grandson, and myself) to Toys R Us to get my two grandkids some new toys. We all had a fun day out shopping!!! Well that's it for now, just a little of whats going on over here in my part of the world.
