Have you ever had deep fried macaroni?

Where have I been?!

Sorry I haven't posted lately. There just hasn't been much to tell. I've just been keeping busy making new stuff for my etsy shop and wishing Chris was here. He has been in New Orleans for a month now.

My youngest is ready to go test for his drivers permit and I really wish Chris could be here to take care of that. I just feel like it's one of those milestones where a young man needs his father. I feel like they are both missing out on a lot. I feel like I am missing out on a husband. But, I didn't blog to start spreading my loneliness around. It is what it is, ya know?

Speaking of the youngest...Caleb has been working with his uncle in his mechanic garage. He started going with him just to have something to do to pass time. He also loves to fix things. Next thing you know he is getting up every day at 5am to leave and making a little money doing small repairs. So now I spend my days missing Caleb too. It won't be long before he makes his own way in the world. It's a good thing and a sad thing all rolled in to one.

I guess that's all for now. It's Friday so I guess I will leave you with wishes for a nice weekend. =)

Made for eachother.

Made at two different times, months apart. Then I listed the earrings in my etsy shop yesterday and it hit me, these two pieces go great together! Both are made with peridot and blue apatite gemstones. How cool! Almost makes me rethink selling them. lol

Does anyone need a pair of sterling silver crystal quartz earrings? They will match anything and everything.
If so you can get them HERE. Just listed!


EDIT: I decided to list them on Etsy.
I have all these beautiful novelty yarns/fibers that I've been holding on to for quite a while now. They were very popular in scrapbooking at one time and I joined a ton of fiber swaps to get this collection.
But now I find that they are taking up space rather than being loved and used, so I am trying to decide if I really want to mess with listing them on ebay or not. It's times like these I wish etsy got more traffic!

Repurposed from a sewing pattern.

I just made this this morning. Before it was a flower it was a McCall's dress pattern from 1990. As in a sewing pattern! How cool is that! It has over 30 layers of the dress pattern and I darkened the papers with liquid chalk ink. It also has been lightly stiffened to help it keep shape.
Ain't it purdy?! :) It's also for sale.

I need an assistant!

I love making stuff for my Etsy shop but I absolutely loathe all the time it takes to make great photos of the items, then all the photo editing and getting them to the proper size, write descriptions, file categories, and all that listing jazz.

Like now I have a dozen or so rag style stockings I need to get listed and a bunch of other Christmas themed items I've made over the past few months. (I want to list now so that they will expire just after Christmas).

Anyway, I put my creations away after I make them. So in order to list them I have to drag it all back out, set a stage, etc. It takes too many hours logged in front of the computer to get it all listed.

I wish I had an assistant to do the listings so that I could just enjoy being creative. lol

Words you can live by

I thought some of my bloggy friends might like these following statements. =)

*Man's way leads to a hopeless end--God's way leads to endless hope.

*A lot of kneeling will keep you in good standing.

*He who kneels before God can stand before anyone.

*In the sentence of life, the devil may be a comma--but never let him be the period.

*Don't put a question mark where God puts a period.

*When praying, don't give God instructions, just report for duty.

*We don't change God's message-- His message changes us.
