This one is for Momma and her friends in the Book Dept.

They all have been banned from Jumping in the Dumpster.....Okay my Momma and friends volunteer in the book dept. at her local comunity centers monthly junk sale. This sale was the high lite of the month in the small town where I grew up. Now my Mom and friends have been told they can't jump in the dumpster for goodies anymore. Darn I had so much fun hurling my Mom up and over and she came up with a great pair of flared jeans! I made my Mom a ribbon with "Dumpster Diva" written on it and the girls all wanted one. I am going to make t-shirts soon. These bumper stickers just came in! I have recently starting selling on etsy, but I will have to do my own .com store so I can sell t-shirts and bumper stickers if that what I feel like. I love to keep Momma amused! I have already researved, I just need to set up my templete and host!

What direction did I go....

One of My favorite Craft books, must have if you are learning to solder
I worked on a spoon and a another Tulle bracelete. This one is in case you didn't get a corsage for the prom. I lived in a small town and there were no florists. We were lucky if the boys left their hunting hats at home. I think both need one more embellishment. The spoon I am making to hang in the kitchen. Anyone know a clever french work for me to place or stamp on a charm to finish this off?

Do you focus on Just one thing,or do you go several directions all at once

Home from flying for a few days and I had a few more desigh ideas to try out. Just before I go to bed a new idea will hit me and I have to run and get that journal of mine. I only have two days off and so many things to try....sometimes my real job gets in the way of my creativity. What would you do? Pick just one new idea to try? Sleep in and just go to the movies? Try a bit of everything, I will probley do it this way. I always think I have time for everything! I let you know Thursday! Have a great week!

I made my first Sale today,actually two!

I had beginners frustration with ebay and then I slid a few things over to Etsy and to my surprize I sold a vintage doll. At the same time a doll sold on Ebay. Yippie!Now reinvest,pay my fees, and most of all give my first fruits of labor to the one who has blessed me with new talents and Idea's daily. What a great feeliing.
I was wrong in wanting to make big ticket sales, I had forgotten how much the hunt and finding a great price that won't break the bank feels. Thats what my store will be about, I was dreaming too big! I was humbled, but ever greatfull for it! Happy Shopping!

What to make today? Some favorite materials.

I started to post this morning but with a mild case of ADD-Manic-crafting-I ran off to the garage to pound away at silver and solder some items. Oh weekends, where you don't have to focuss and just fallow your whims.....Oh yeah, it was a phone called that drove me in a new direction. Some day I will learn better time managment. Do you all suffer from crafting to distraction disease?

What I am Reading Now

I just started getting "Porch" magazine and the images are so inspiring-I carry a camara everywhere now! You can purchase from Polly at Counting Your Blessings.
I have learned so much about blogging from Tara Freys "Blogging for Bliss".
My new hobby of soldering is expanding to silversmithing and working with vintage spoons. I love the stories and instructions in Stephanie Lee's "Semiprecious Salvage". I am hardly sleeping because the ideas keep flowing.Semiprecious Salvage: Creating Found Art Jewelry
