Happy Saturday night

Well, it is Saturday night here in Maine. I've been busy. We went this morning to my parents house. We also got the boys some new sheets (300 count). I'm hoping this will help keep them in their own beds. They really like our sheets.

I also picked up some cell phone charms that my mom and I want to try to sell. I've got Patriots, Red Sox and Yankees. I like them. They are all posted in my shop ( I took some time and handmade special cards for them to be displayed on. The cards turned out better than I thought they would. I took a picture of a cell phone. I blacked out the company, cause I wouldn't want to be suspected of supporting any one company in particular. Then thickened the pictures. Whaalaa! Got my cards. Now I just need to make more teams. I can make MLB and NFL.

I got one posted before my BIL came to post some things on ebay. He is a novice. I remember those days. I'm also teaching my hubby how to post things on ebay. He posted a car manual. (They get pretty expensive.) We don't need the manual as that car was burned in the barn fire (a story for another day).

Ebay is going pretty good. I have quite a bit of stuff to post. Between my parents cleaning things out and me cleaning out rooms, I think I'm pretty set for a while.

It's late here. Gotta get to bed.

Last day of the first week

Today was my son's last day of school during his first week of school. He gets off the bus so excited about everything he did that day. I got a call from the school nurse. He had a large bump on his cheek. I told them it was a bug bite which they already figured out. When he gets bit, he swells up. I asked the dr. about it. Since he isn't having breathing problems, he isn't allergic. Poor kid!

Things were busy today. I got things cleaned up some. I actually had all the dishes done. Until dinner was made. Now the sink is full. I'll worry about them tomorrow. I need to get some sleep. I must say getting up early makes me feel like I get more accomplished during my day. The LARGE cup of coffee in the morning helps too.

I did some more rows on a blanket for my cousin's newest addition. I'll have to post a pic when it is finished.

Hope everyone has a good night.

Busy week.

Well, my oldest started school this year. I didn't cry like I thought I would. I saw how ready he was. He absolutely loves it. He wanted to ride the bus on his 2nd day. The 2nd child screamed and cried cause he couldn't ride it. He wanted to go to school so bad.

We did end up sending our son to the public school. The only thing I miss is the people that I got to talk to. I feel like I'm on the outside looking in. Some people will hardly talk to me cause I've sent my son to the dreaded public school. Oh well.

I was able to get some things done. I have a new set of earrings. They are Jack-O-Lanterns. I really liked how they turned out. I'm thinking of developing a set of earrings of different countries. We'll see how that goes. I'll keep you updated.

It has been a while!

I've been busy. Cleaning out the craft room, helping my parents get ready to move, getting my oldest ready for school. It doesn't seem to end.

I have just come across a book that was printed in 1933 before the ISBN's were started. I started to look around for the value. WOW is all I can think of to say. Now I just need to find a buyer. I'm trying to contact a person who has a website dedicated to this author.

I have also created some new crafts. I'll try to get some pics posted.

I also started a store for my MIL. Just cause I don't have enough to do. :P

Sorry for the tardiness of my posts. I've had a lot on my plate. I've tried to put in a slide show of my current items I've made, but I still need to work on it. Just check out my store, and my MIL store. I've added some fall dishcloths and hair clippies for little girls.

Have a great Day!

Need some help!

I need to help for a friend. She is having a baby at the end of the month and needs to change neighborhoods. We're talking guns, drugs, etc. She has a store that sells awesome jewelry. Check it out. Thanks for any purchases from her store that you make.

What did I get done?

I'm not sure what the answer to that question is. I got up this morning and waited for the man to pick up the bike. About 10 min. before he got there, someone called to offer me $100. I did pause, but I promised the first guy. Besides, I think it was the second guy's girlfriend. They only get my number if I contact them. I took down the ad after the second guy contacted me through the listing.

I also have sold the dog house. That will be picked up on Wednesday. I'm so excited. I'm making room in the garage, so that maybe I can actually park in there this winter.=)

I'll be so glad when we can get our next house built. With a family of 5, we are getting a little crowded. I'm hoping to get stuff out, so that I have a space for me. The only other females in the house are the dog and 2 cats, but they don't know they are girls. They were fixed before they realized it.

Every little bit that I can get, goes to pay down the debts. It is tough, but well worth it. Will we ever be debt free? I have no idea, but we'll try.

Anyway, back to my day. I got the bike sold. I went into town, paid somethings off. Then spent a little time window shopping. I found a Captain Planet thermos at Goodwill for less than a dollar. Got that posted on ebay. Then went to work on a bridesmaid's dress for a wedding next Saturday. When I realized, I didn't have the right color thread. So I made another trip into town. Worked on the dress for about 1/2 hour. Went to a pig roast. Came home and have been trying to motivate myself to finish the dress.

So back to work I go.

So I did quite a bit of posting today. I listed several sets of clothes 0-3 mos. boys on my ebay (briana78bear). I then posted a few things on craigslist. I have a bidding war on a bike. I promised it to a guy. He should be up tomorrow morning to pick it up. If he falls through there is another guy willing to pay twice as much. I couldn't believe it. I did promise it to the first guy, so I need to stand by my word. Aaaaaaaaaaarggghhhh. Stupid principles!
