I did get this uploaded...
I do like it! I just have a few more products with this image and I can move to the next.
Today I am at the school so I will not have too much time to finish. Then my son is off for the rest of the week. We shall see what I get done!

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!

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.

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....

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!

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!!

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!

I will try and post everyday but may be needed elsewhere to help out some family issues. It can be draining when so much happens at once. Me, well just some small hiccups, but added to the worry of everyone else they feel like part of a big bad luck spree. Everything will be fine, may not go they way we want but it will be fine.

It is gluten free fish stick night! First time we are trying the brand Ian's. I hope they are good! I have been snapping some picture of wildlife when I can. I have a few canvases stored away and I have a feeling I am getting an easel and more paints for my birthday, think I will be able to paint some interesting things!
New Zazzle items will be coming soon, I promise. I will get one on next week. I have been selling nicely so that is a big boost to get me back in the game!
Enjoy the weekend!

I built a dvd cabinet last night so today I will sort and put my son's dvds in his new holder. Then disassemble and remove an old tv cabinet stand that is in his room now. That will give him much more room to play. I hope to make a trip to the hardware store to get some shelving for his wall. I want to finish his room updating before I move to other projects. We have this big yard sale coming up....and we have a cellar full of stuff ready to price. I am filling another box just by going through my office drawers, haven't hit the closet yet. It is nice to clear out old things and have space!

Since I haven't had a chance to work on artwork, I have been writing down my ideas so I do not forget them. There are some nice pictures I took that I would love to get on Zazzle also. Wish I was more organized with my time. I will get there, never give up! Oh, I also have to get my taxes done...That will be this weekend. Then birthdays are coming up (my brothers and mine) and Easter. Wow, busy busy!!

So I did not get anything done I wanted to yesterday. Try and catch up today. At least it was sunny and nice yesterday, today cloudy. Tomorrow will be sunny and maybe in the 50's! I might be able to get a walk outside in. That was one of my resolutions for the year was to get back walking. Weather put a damper on that so far.
I have been taking some nice photos of the wildlife in our yard. I am hoping to get some artwork made from them. Once things get back to normal (like that will happen) or at least somewhat normal!!

I did get my gluten free pizzas made Friday. First time making a broccoli pizza. It was good!

Off topic, I have always struggled with dry skin, sensitive skin etc. Because I have a severe sensitivity to gluten, I can't use moisturizers with oat, wheat and some other products. The ones that I can use really do nothing. I have been hearing things about pure coconut oil and how that helps your skin. I didn't want to try it because I am not fond of coconut. I have tried in the past to give it a fair chance but I don't like the taste and not to fond of the smell. After seeing the red patches on my face and the dry flaky areas around my nose and using so much concealer to try and hide it, I broke down and bought a jar of coconut oil. Well, OMG!! I don't normally go crazy for something but the coconut oil is amazing! I have used it for three weeks so far. I originally said, "I will give it a month and if nothing happens then I will just have to live with my skin". In two days there was a drastic reduction in the redness on my face and in less then a week I no longer need concealer, even under my eyes! My eyes had somewhat dark circles under them. They are gone. The redness that was around my nose and up parts of my cheeks are gone. I no longer have flaky skin around the nose. I can go without makeup *gasp*. Just some eyeliner and mascara. That is amazing! I can't remember when that was even possible in the past. This is a link to the brand I bought at Amazon. If you tried everything but nothing works I would recommend giving this a try. I use it before bed and when I wake up. The nice thing is that it's one ingredient, no chemicals or preservatives and really is inexpensive. A little goes a long way.
Ok, now back on topic. I have two gluten free pizzas to make today, one broccoli and one cheese. The laundry monster has struck again so will be living in the laundry room this morning. I also have to make a green colored snack for my son today for "Green eggs and ham" book reading. I also have some really nice photos of birds I took a few weeks ago. I think I might try posting on my other Zazzle store that I set up for my photography.
Have a great weekend and warm weather is on the way!

Well school let out early yesterday which meant my son did not have school yesterday. He was thrilled and begged for me to sleigh ride with him. So for a few hours we sledded down the yard. I am sure feeling it today! He really enjoyed it and you know what, so did I!
Needless to say I did not get any zazzle done, did make a few sales though. I think the best thing to do is go with the flow. I will be a lot more relaxed if I do and not stressing myself out.
I have a feeling that there will be a delay for school today. It is Dr Seuss week and today it is dress wacky day. I have to give my son a faux hawk, dress him in wacky clothes, already sewed a Cat in the Hat stuffy to a shirt and give him a cat nose. Should be fun! Now the evening is a different story. There are several scenarios of weather reported, a couple of inches, over a foot or nothing....we shall see.
I did clear a lot of items out of the upstairs down to the staging area of yard sale items. I can't wait. It is a long and tough day but worth it!
** School Closed for the day. Still have significant ice on roadways. All my plans have changed. Looks like just a bit of snow tonight. Is spring going to show up?

I did not get to zazzle yesterday. After getting my son off to school and tackling only a portion of his room, the day just got away from me. If he has school tomorrow then definitely I will be able to get to some zazzling. This is a tough time, our yard sale is a big deal in the neighborhood so we like to be ready and start almost two months ahead of time to get ready. The road in front of the house and the side streets are usually packed with cars!!
Keeping an eye on my phone to see if there is school or not!

Well today I plan on doing small uploads of my new zazzle image. Instead of one big one I will do it in pieces. Hopefully I can get this one image done! I have been selling nicely. I recently sold 450 keychains! I was so surprised and happy!
I am also starting to gather and price items for our yard sale. I know it is 2 months away but we have so much stuff that if we don't start now then we will be struggling and stressing out when the time comes. We are getting a following for our yard sales, I believe it is our 4th year in a row!!
