Found a fellow grandma..........while I love the young ones and all their babies (I did the whole stay at home scene with my five kids) it is nice to meet a fellow grandma and share grandkids stories.... all it shows is that life flies by so fast, so enjoy every minute and kiss your children often.....hugs too....
And if you are a fellow grandma, check out Grandma Bonnie's Closet.....and lets share stories.

But if you had to ask me what I like about her shop, I would have to point out that she has the most amazing converse shoes.........for babies............they are absolutely unbelievable.....I truly wish I had a baby girl to give them to.......
So there is plenty of food in the fridge, doing laundry today....will take in the summer chairs and table from the deck.....and then plan to go upstairs and be creative....got to get ready for Valentines day and am in a "heart" mood. Listening to Billy Joel on my Ipod right now.....so he's putting me in the mood....will feature my items here first before putting them on Etsy for the New Year.
So have a relaxing day too.....and wait for the snow!

So went a little surfing, found some ideas and here I am - a new look. Hope you like it.....I like change.....and now that I am off.....I will be working on some new ideas for 2011....stay tuned....meantime, if you like what you see - please let me know....
starting with a drink to toast each other and way on to the soup, main dish, and even dessert.....came home stuffed since we usually dont eat that much....but it was delicious....
So today we are both back on track and I am not weighing in tomorrow because I do know it wont be to my liking....but I guess special occasions deserve special things.....many happy years of marriage and five children, and six grandchildren later.....he still lights up my life.....my love, my best friend.......

So when another colleague came over to me this afternoon with an attitude and a nasty disposition, I did not retaliate or even get upset. I let her rant and rave and then quietly told her my side and then instructed her to go to administration if she had any further issues. I told my boss what happened and she instructed me to document it and attach it to her file.
Life is too short to fight, hug and kiss your children, your family, your parents....we are not here long, so enjoy every minute.
On a happier note, I came home today and checked my computer and found that a piece of my jewelry was featured in the ETSY TREASURY, so please check it out. and dont forget to find me on Facebook and "like" my jewelry page. You can never have too many "likes".
I dont want to be morbid but this line of thinking is coming from the thought that there is still so much I want to do and I can seem to get a handle of the time frame. Do I retire soon? and if I do, what do I do with my life. I love making jewelry and right now it seems I squeeze it in between my daily life. Will I have more time for it after I retire? Well in four days I will be on winter break for school. I plan to ...or I plan to try to.....set up a specific time during the day to stay in my shop and work on creativity....and if this works, maybe when I retire I will be able to devote more time to it.
Its a plan.....maybe a New Year's Resolution.....what do you say?
