Oh My!!

I didn't post yesterday and am I late today or what!!!  I was spring cleaning yesterday.  Everything in my room has been aired out, washed, vacuumed, wiped down, polished and put back.  I totally forgot about posting.  But now both my son's room and my room are ready for the spring.

I have been selling nicely on Zazzle.  Business cards seem to be in demand.  I think I will try and get something on today.  Even if it is a partial upload and finish other products later.  I got to keep the creativity going!

We have family visiting this weekend. It will be nice!  Enjoy your weekend and see you Monday!

Going to be an Egg-celent Day!

Today I am filling plastic eggs for an egg hunt.  My son's class will be having a Spring Celebration next week.  He is super excited. I am also starting to price items for the yard sale.  There are so much items, it will take a month to price everything!  The yard sale is a big deal around here.  We have had people come every year and it is there favorite yard sale!

My son got me an easel and paints for my birthday.  I can not wait to get some painting in too!  I have been doing well on zazzle even though I haven't posted anything new.  The days just seem to go by too fast, too many things going on.  Got to change that.

A day to recover...

Ate so much on Sunday, needed a day to recover.  Plus my son caught a cold and I am getting it too.  This was my cake.
It was delicious.  I tried making roses on the top. Ate too much pizza too! 

Ready to tackle the day today.  Loads of laundry, errands for school supplies, bills, projects etc.  Going to be a busy day.  All while nursing a slight head cold. You know it is yard sale prep time....

Cake Time!

My birthday is on Sunday but starting my cake today. Bake the layers, tomorrow ice it and refrigerate until Sunday!  I make a pudding icing and if it sits for 24 hours it is even more delicious! I also want to wish my brother a Happy Birthday today!
Our birthdays are 3 days apart and we always compromised on cakes, his chocolate and mine vanilla!

Snowing already.  School has started but have a feeling they will dismiss early and my son won't have school.  We are on watch now.

Have a great weekend!

Had a great day yesterday!

Here is my little one all decked out for yesterday!
He makes me smile!  He is a little Irish.

Wind was wicked yesterday.  Out of the blue gust came roaring in.  Thought something hit the house be no evidence of anything. Maybe creaking in the wind! 

I have been selling quite a bit of business cards lately.  I like that! I hope one day I actually see one of my designs on a business card on my travels.  That would be awesome!  Still getting ready for the yard sale.  I have my closet yet to scavenge.  I know I will find quite a bit hidden in the depths!  The clothes already have been sorted and picked through, the boxes in the back have not.  That will be an undertaking!

Today I am working on taxes.  Got to get that done even though I know the outcome, payment to be sent out. *sigh*  Then I have some errands to run.  All within 3hrs while my son is at school.  I will be zooming around!!

A difference a day makes!

After such an interesting weekend, yesterday turned out to be promising.  I found a job posting that is just up my alley. Even though I would love Zazzle to become a main source of income, I don't think it will in the time that I need it to.  Maybe as I grow my products but I do need work and this job fits the bill.  Trying not to get my hopes up but needed something to look forward to after such a tough weekend. It is even got my family excited and they need a distraction now as well.

Happy St Patrick's Day!  Will be baking some Irish soda bread soon.  My son will be all in green today, he is a little Irish you know!

I am going to keep good thoughts all day!
