It's Been A While

Hello everyone! I know, it's been forever since I've blogged...and really been around. Lots and lots has been going on the past five or so months. Right now I will give you sort of the cliff notes version of whats been going on. And then fingers crossed that I will be back around shortly to go more in depth on a few things.

First off I got a job! Yay me!.....sort of why I disappeared. While I'm not using degree I love that I'm working with dogs. You all know I love animals, especially dogs. It's a great company, small which I like. For you fellow dog loving Chicagoans you should check it out, it's called Canine Social Club. Or anyone can check it out really.
sshhh they're finally relaxing

Sadly I am no longer a leader or member of the Promotional Frenzy team on etsy, as most of you have probably noticed. It truly is a great team. I learned a whole lot while I was there and am glad I got to know so many people on the team. Never would I have imagined I would be talking to people from all over the U.S, Canada, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and many more places all at the same time. SO many good times were had. And they have a kick ass leader Janet, check out her her rings! I learned sooo much from her about the crafting world and online world. She helped me out a lot and my shop wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for her.

Ok enough of that lol it's making me emotional. What else, what else.

I no longer have my turtles who I loved. They were getting very big and messy. They now live in a man made pond with plenty of space and food. It's heated in the winter and has a pump going all year long. So I know they have a great home. That still didn't make it easy to say good bye to them, but it's better for them.
good bye...yes I was crying

I went on a vacation to North Carolina. After four years of my cousin living out there I finally went in her last year there. But of course with my luck it was in the 50s and 60s while I was there. It was the coldest it had been in years for that time of year. I had a lot of fun and it was nice to visit with family that I haven't seen in over a year. But while I was gone my snake Sammie who I had for 9 1/2 years passed away.
awesome pier...but was damaged in the hurricane

I have decided that I am for sure doing a craft show. I don't know when yet...but I am. I have been working to build up my stock. It's taking a lot of time because I don't quite have a whole lot of time to dedicate to working on things for it. But I am building my inventory. It's scary but exciting all at the same time.

Ok I need to get to bad. But I will be back to fill you in and show you progress on things. I really really am hoping to be around more. Ok I just downloaded the blogger app. So now I really don't have an excuse. lol.

Oh and p.s I joined a gym, have a new boyfriend and bought have two button quails that are living in my room. But I'll save all that for another day.
