I must say that it feels like an eternity since I last posted on here. I have been consumed with finals and then the start of a very difficult online course. I generally get to do some real-time internet use after Isabella goes to sleep, so that is usually spent doing my homework which is due at 2am. I have otherwise done a few crafts and quite a bit of cheap shopping to organize all my craft stuff I keep bringing home. I need another hobby, or we need to move. I just love to craft, but have little space. I have a lot of photos I will be uploading about what I have been up to this past couple weeks. Speaking of shopping, is everyone getting up bring and early to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving? I have never done that. Can you believe that? Well, for good reason. I have always worked that day. But now that I don't have a job, which is very sad for me not to work that day, I am able to. Where I worked we would have hundreds and hundreds of people lined up outside to get in. It was a sports and outdoor retail store. Like Dicks, if you have them in your area. The company closed in June after filling for chapter 11 and then being bought out by a liquidation company. Dicks actually is slowly coming over to the Northwest using all of the old vacant Joes stores. Anywho, I am excited to get some shopping done that day. I have my boyfriend and step-dad to buy for. But, if the price is good, I might buy myself something special. Nordstrom, here we come :)
I am a stay-at-home to a toddler girl. I recently lost my job and am used to working and being busy and I have been slowly learning how to occupy my time without loosing my mind and that is by crafting. I love to craft but it sure does cost you money. Dear craft store, why do you cost so much money? My goal is to do what I love to do, craft, and do it cheaply without it looking cheap. I frequently visit estate sales and re-sell stores and after searching for hours, I can come home with some pretty neat things, for crafts and home. I hope to get better at saving money, and enjoying my hobby without breaking the bank.
