This is my first blog, on this newly created blog of mine. It is Thanksgiving Day, I'm watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and drinking my coffee and blogging!
I started this blog because there are sometimes when I just want to tell my stamping lady friends what is going on in my life.
This is a much needed day off for me. I go to school full time to become a medical assistant. It is not somethign I planned for in my life, but after two elbow surgeries and a hand surgery, I knew I could never go back to having to use my arms all day. I was an office manager that worked about 50-60 hrs a week and was on the computer almost all day long. My arms are shot.
When I first went out of work is when I discovered stamping. I was so bored, and I just bought some stamps so I thought I would try to make some cards by myself. I fell in love with the craft. I have always been a crafty lady, but I never really found the one thing that I could really express my creativity until now! I just love making cards! I have so many, I have no idea what to do with them all, lol! I started going to craft fairs. I made about $70 this year over the price of the tables. I guess the economy is just so bad no one wants to buy. Last year I made $120 so I was a little disappointed. Oh well.
I think I am rambling here. I don't know. All I know is, even though I enjoy my peace and quiet, I miss my son. He is with his father. I got divorced in August and it has been quite the task getting acclamated to the changes of single life. I didn't know I had so much yard upkeep!!! LOL! I hired a friend to help me because I just couldn't do it with my arms and all. Of course, I had to pay him to help me as he did do some manual labor for me. Money, money, money! How can we live without it!!! lol
Gee, I am rambling. I guess I have more to say than I initially thought. So maybe this will be another stress reliever for me, well, when I have the time. It is nice to relax. Ok, I think I will leave more for another day.
For now, have a great thanksgiving, and stamp on!!!!
