This weather is was 50 degrees yesterday morning and rain, today it's 19 and snow and by tomorrow night they are saying snow and temps around zero with wind chills at 10-16 below. WTH I say my rug rats are freezing!!! They look at me and I know they are saying "tell me again why you got me a hair cut and cut all my hair off?"

Any whoo...I did some painting yesterday and like I said I need to take mor pics because I only took one before pic and that's it. I have spray painted some owls white and they turned out way cute!!! I have 2 more to do so I'll get a before pic of them to post. I also have been painting some wood hangers I got in some bright colors. They are turning out really cut too. I also painted a small mirror. I'm trying to get ready for the winter woolen workshop coming up in February. It's a sat and sun show $10 to get in it covers both days and all the processed go to the historical society. It will be an awesome event because there will be all kinds of demos going on you will see people quilting, spinning yarn, rug hooking, rug punch, punch needle, felting and hand stitching. There also will be people teaching classes both days. You can see the schedule on bethsmainstreetfolkart/ or go to her blog to get more info.
I am super excited about this show it processed go to a good cause and the people that do this show are amazing if you or someone you know are wanting to learn some kind of handwork this is the place to come because the knowledge of the people at this show is endless. I hope to see everyone there I am going to put all the details on my side bar tonighti hope everyone stays warm over the next few days I'm helping the bee lady move again so I will be trying to do the same.

it's been a week...

so one of the major things that has happened is i quit my job last friday. i just walked out i had had enough. it's been a long time comin i haven't been happy for awhile and i am sick of retail and especially retail management. of coarse i'm kinda freakin out now because it wasn't planned i just did it on a whim but the good thing is my other half is supporting me 100%. we are going to have to change our life style and cut back in order to make ends meet but i feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
i'm hoping to have more time to do some of the things i love and i have a lot of ideas brewing in my head. one of my high school friends has a booth at the big antique store in town (treasure mart) and she said i could put some stuff in her booth so i'm doin my spring claening and gettin rid of some stuff. i know (one of my friends said) it's not spring but because of all my years in retail we do the spring cleaning in jan so now thats when i always do it at home. i want to take more pictures and set up displays and get my photography better i also want to learn a few new things so i will have a lot to keep my busy because one of my rooms looks like a hoarders closet i have way to many clothes.
i have been looking for a new job and hope i don't have to go back to retail but if i do it will not be as a store manager and i hope it will be a different kind of retail. 'm not gunna lie i'm scared to death what if i can't find anything jobs are so hard to come by these days but i'm having faith and staying positive.
my friends told me the other day that i've hit my reset button that i'm at a point in my life where i'm ready for a change and i've taken the leap and hit the button. so anyway this is the major thing that's goin on in my life right now as more changes come i will keep everyone posted but for right now i'm enjoyin some time off and the little guys are lovin me being home with them.
i hope everything is goin good with all of you out there in blogland.
