Got lost somewhere along the way.

One of these days I will get back to daily blogging...so where have I been the last 3 weeks...um around. I had a craft show on the 16th & 17th (which did very well for me actually) so I spent the week leading up to it trying to gets stuff finished. Then in the midst of that week, my laptop started acting funny. Turns out the video card was starting to go!!! That was NOT cool, so $300 later it's off to the computer hospital to get fixed. Hopefully it'll be back in the next few days. I really miss MY laptop. While I am grateful for the use of my sister's desktop and my husbands old laptop; neither one is MY laptop and it's driving me nuts. I have made several new items but don't want to upload pics into a computer that's not mine, so I am holding off for now.
At my craft show I sold off all the remaining barbie outfits and several of the cakes and desserts. I have another show on the 6th, so I am already planning more. I also created a couple of monogram ornaments that I am hoping to sell as custom order pieces. They are simple but I think really lovely. I am also trying to find a decently priced chocolate scented fragrance oil. Last month I did a few pieces of Barbie desserts that were scented like cinnamon spice cakes. I'd LOVE to do some chocolate items too!
Um let's see what else...I've been reading up a storm...I think I've read atleast 15 books in the last 2 monthes. I'll try to review them at a later date.

Oooh I've also been working out Monday through Thursday for the last 2 weeks. Today was actually day 2 of week 3! I feel great and have actually already lost about 2 pounds! =D I feel really great after my workouts and am actually enjoying them too. (for the most part! ;-D)

My latest project to play with has been turning the bottle brush trees sold for Christmas displays into more realistic trees using lycopodium or Princess Pine. It took me about 7 hours, but I completely a 2 inch tree, and 8 inch tree and have a 5.5 inch tree 3 quarters of the way ocmpleted. It's a tedious, time-consuming and messy process, but they trees lok so amazing when they are finished! I promise to post pics as soon as my laptop comes home!

Thanks for reading along with where I disappeared to and what I've been doing! Until next time!


  1. So glad to hear that things are going well. Not good about the laptop, I think Id die without mine, so I know how you feel! I hope you get it back asap. Congrats on the commitment to working out - thats so great! Keep it up.

  2. What would we do without our computers! I know what you mean about writing the blog though I seem to be a hopeless case, I keep promising myself I will find something to write about at least once a week but it just doesn't work out.
    Glad to hear the workout is going well, I enjoy Tai Chi workout every day.

  3. Yay, It's great to have you back - even if for a little while. I go through MIA spells myself (as you know)
    Glad the workout routine is going good for you!!!
    Can't wait to see the pics you upload :)

  4. wow- you've been busy girl- good for you! Congrats on the exercising and weight loss :) I'm trying to bet back at it too- not going as easy for me! I can't wait to see what you've been working on! I get sad when my laptop is not working right, so I can relate to your woes right now- hope it gets fixed soon! I don't know how long your blog has looked like this- but it sure is pretty!! I really love your header (is that the right word??)
