No its Monday! Gah!
The best way to get thru a bad Monday at the office is to stay home!
So I did! But now it feels like Sunday all over again… that means tomorrow will feel like a Monday! Fudge!
You just can’t win!
Hey anybody out there from Iowa?!? We are looking at a college in Storm Lake!
Do you know of it?
So yeah caught up on college stuff for about a second today and then tonight I played in craft space.
I made these rocks:
I gave these match boxes a facelift:
And I started this project:
I am copying a mixed media artist online that I adore! I changed it up and used gears and no thread yet. But its such a fun thing to do!
Now I have to rewatch her video to finish it! I love her style!
Besides all that it seems to be calm before the storm! Something is happening at work and its not good! Scary!
I will let you know as soon as I know. Yikes!
Next Saturday is a craft fair and my girlfriend gonna take some stuff to sell. She gets 10%! So I hope I sell a lot of rocks!
As promised here is the page I love the most:
He is just so handsome in that pic.
Last night I watched a scary movie and started a Halloween glue book
Loving the colors of fall even though it is back to HOT here! Ugh!
Have a great day!
I have officially lost my mind! I mean seriously!
Like this is fun?
So I glued some pages of a catalogue together then fingerpainted on different colors and now…. I am gluing on images I cut out of magazines.
Sounds like someone is reverting!
But its mindless, free, keeps me occupied and strangly satisfying.
Last night I used a photo of Clooney and I loved it. Will share soon. He is so handsome in that pic!
I have no idea what this means. I honestly feel like this stuff, kind of creative, kind of childs play is saving my soul.
My thankless soul sucking job is anything but enjoyable. I keep thinking 4 more years.
Do you always seem to be counting the days? I think I might be a little whack people!?!
Thank goodness for even the slightest distraction!
So today I am minding my own business working in my craft space:
With Gracie overlooking my work:
Until she got bored with me:
Then she looked outside and wondered what in the heck is all that gray stuff!
Ain’t it great!?!
It was nice hanging out with my crafts on a cloudy day. I still have a few Alpaca ones I need to finish up:
Isn’t that cute! Thats real Alpaca fiber. These cards take way too long!
Anyway! About the $300.00!
I got a letter in the mail today from my Attorney! OMG talk about a panic when I saw that return address!
But I pulled up my big girl britches and opened it and BAM… I got a refund from Chase!
I think I know where it came from. A few years ago they sent me a thing for taxes. Pay this much and your mortgage won’t go up… I paid it but they increased my mortgage anyway! I just kept my mouth shut and head down… Now I got 300.00 to help me out.
Now I hope I dont have to send it to Trustee but the note from atty did not say to!
So on that note! I got to celebrate tonight!
As you can see I don’t spend $ on wine to be sure. 😎🌺👍
Have a great evening!! Cheers!
Hi there! Lets talk trash!
Ok no trash talk about the morons I work with. Whoops my bad!
We can talk about trash as in Junk Journals. Go look them up, so pretty what some crafters do.
I did this at work over a few lunch breaks. Its not really a junk journal because its just old book pages and not junk mail, etc.
You get the jist, its just a handmade notebook and I love making them. Its so relaxing.
I also painted (washed) some page flowers to use. Its gettiing arty here at work too!
Speaking of work… Its my Friday off and I have to work it! It really helped my last paycheck! I need the cash so badly right now!
Thankfully I have plenty of food for the next couple of weeks (mostly).
I have college apps looming. My kid is retaking the ACT too so that costs. Oh and more tutoring for that. Was there a line item for all this when I made out my budget 4 years ago, cause I missed it?!
I have everything I need this weekend to stay home and have fun.
I have food, medicine, WINE and my Gracie!
Its all good! We got this!
First of all HELLO!
Secondly I know how fortunate I an to have medical insurance at all these days. Especially with an expensive chronic illness!!!
But this is still gonna leave a mark! Mine went from nada to $91.29 a month.
I GET IT, I KNOW! ITS STILL CHEAP! But I can still feel the pain.
Good thing I dont have more than 1 dependent!
It seems like EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING has increased but my income in so long.
I do get a 2% increase in January. 2% of nuthin is still nuthin. And now that has been wiped out! Thank you!
Its a good thing I have been in training the last few years to be Po cause that is exactly what I will be for the rest of my life🌸
