So today, I'm unpacking. Same old stuff every day. Seems like the same old boxes too. Seems even like it will never end.
Suddenly I decide I've had enough and whip out 1lbs of jalapenos. Next thing I know I'm looking at 7 jars of Hot Jalapeno Jelly cooling on my counter. *Gigglin* Cracks me up when out of absolutely nowhere I NEED to drop what I'm doing and bake or do crafty crap. Why, it's a wonder I ever get anything finished!
I still haven't found my printer. So I keep hoping nothing sells in my etsy shop since I can't print shipping labels. Bad, huh?
HHHmmmm my hands are on fire after handling all those peppers. Wish I would have found my gloves. That'll teach me! And you! Pay attention when I tell you- Jalapenos=Gloves! This stuff would make a great lip plumper! My whole house smelled like sweet jalapenos all day. :)
So now Hubby's home. We had the vegan equivilant of tacos. They sure hit the spot.
My Mom goes in for knee surgery tomorrow. I know she'll be okay but she's had bad experiences with surgeries before so she gets pretty stressed out. But she should be able to walk and move more comfortably after all this is done. I miss her. I miss my family. I miss Ohio.
I'm going back to cuddle up with my silky Dragon comforter my Hubby bought for me 8 years ago. I love it toooooo much!
I'll try and write more tomorrow

Sorry about the abrupt ending. When Hubby says bedtime, it's not something you pass up ;)
Soooo right now I'm mostly doing glass tile jewelry. I have however sold a few of my polymer Steampunk Dragons! I love making those!
Soon I'll be making more creepy and unique stuff to add.
This month and part of last month, everything has been on hold. We moved! When Hubby retired we had to leave military housing. I found a beautiful place on the lake. I can't tell you how badly I want to see the water in the spring!
We rented it "as is". We've actually done quite a bit to it. And we did add to the contract that if she decided to sell the house we have the right to be the first to know and to submit our offer. It's a real diamond in the rough. It needs updating more than anything else. Badly. It was built in 1979 and there it has stayed. We were told that she does intend to sell but only when the market improves.
Well, I suppose I should go and make us some breakfast =)

Good thing I warned you by stating not to expect any wwaayyy back in my first posting!
Alot has happened in the last few months. I've pretty much stopped making bears to sell. Economy is so bad I can't even get my least expensive bears to sell. Right now I'm doing a mix of things that I'm still selling on etsy. I closed my artfire account. I never had any sales there which was really saddening. I even closed up my website. I was just really tired of paying for a site I wasn't making any money from. Etsy at least is always affordable no matter how bad sales maybe.
I do understand that there are a large number of people out there that don't care for the subject matter in my jewelry and other crafts, and that's okay.
Hubby retired from the military after 20 years. He's happy to be a civilian these days. Funny tho, he works at the same place he did when he was enlisted.
OOps bed time! I'll have to finish this tomorrow!
