Been A Long Time...

Since I have posted. I really haven't been doing much. Just working and decorating for the holiday. I did quit my job at Joanns. It's a nice place to shop but working there is a totally different story. I was actually sick of looking at fabrics and craft items. I just came home from work one day after a long day at Joanns and closed the door to my craft room. It has been closed for over a month if not a little more. I finally opened the craft room door over the weekend. I just stood in the middle of room and just looked. I didn't realize how much stuff I have accumulated over time. I have enough stuff in there to do a few craft shows.  My hubby and son cleaned out the garage not to long ago. I have even more stuff out there. Its so amazing just seeing what a pack rat I have become. I did decide that I am going to do a craft show this spring. It will be my first one. I hope by deciding to do a show will get me out of my crafting rut. As you can also tell, I have been in a blogging rut also.I have been reading others blogs but just haven't  been commenting on any. I just feel like I am lost for words.

I really haven't done a whole lot in the past 2 months. I did get a new tattoo for my 42nd birthday on my lower arm.
It isnt anything fancy. Just a few scrolls with purple hearts. I just love purple.

If anyone needs a little seasonal cheering up. Just go to the bottom of my page. I thought I would add some spice to my holiday blog.

Merry Christmas and Prim Blessings,

Hi Patti, Nice to see you. Sorry Joanns burned you out. Hope you get some nice crafts made for spring. I just did my first show and it was fun.

Like your new tattoo.

Ya know I never did receive my giveaway win from you from October. I hope it didn't get lost in the mail.

Good to hear from you....My son's former girlfriend used to work at Joann's - didn't sound like fun....but, nothing about retail this time of year really is.....I can so relate to the packrat thing. Yesterday when I walked in from my son's therapy appt, I looked around and said "a crazy person lives here" - there's Halloween mixed with Christmas, mixed with even a few stray bunnies - and I haven't seen my countertop in days. Crazy I tell ya..... Hope you get out of your rut - we miss you here!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I loved working at the craft store unless I was behind the register, which was mainly my job. I just couldn't deal with rude holiday shoppers. I made it to December then quit. I wished I could have done stocking, but that job was "for the boys" and the register was "for the girls". I enjoyed the times I got to clean up and organize shelves, the OCD in me thought that was fun. :D

It's nice to see you posting, it's been a long time! I hope you are able to get your crafting mojo in gear for a show. That is a good goal to set.

Christmas blessings!
