Just keep at it!


I wanted to share this with those of you starting or trying to keep a personal business going….

This is about perseverance and patience…

This woman has been on Ebay for years, when they started the business it was her and her Dad and he passed away suddenly a few years ago and just devastated her world…slowly she came back…while others got on the band wagon…

here are some of her newest creations…


$_57 (1)

$_57 (2) b

Sweet little vintage card images on fiberboard cut perfect, just the right amount of glitter …they are to hang on a tree… approx. 4x4 inches …She finally is using images we can all relate to….she used to use Victorian type images…but the vintage children’s images from the 50’s and 60’s  are the biggest hits….:) 

These two items sold for are you ready???  $102.00 and $75.00 respectively!  She has many many more with active bidding up in this price now…



Here is a brand new auction, they all start about 6.99…

This one is about to end….

$_57 (2)

it is currently at $74.00….I am just amazed that people will spend that kind of money on one ornament that is paper, wood and glitter and brand new…

I am so happy for her!  But now, I can’t afford them! :)

Cath Kidston…we need to talk….


Hi everyone….well, I am starting to feel like a real person again….

I thought since I was up I would look at Cath Kidston’s site for what’s new…and of course there is SO much I would love to have in my home…so bright and cheerful…here are a few of the items…

11.00 each

11.00 each


plastic type plate  10.00 each

24.00 each

24.00 for each set..

40.00 3 piece

This just gave me shivers it is SO cute!  Are you ready?

this 3 piece set is 42.00 !



for the necklace  and bracelet of resin button…59.00

This is an adult dress….I would never wear it, but it is adorable…



114.00 dollars…..


For my phone….40.00


104.00  Can you tell what my favorite pattern is????


and last but not least a plastic ruler for 12.00….

OK…now I love Cath Kidston….so I tried to figure out how much an order would be for 4 mugs, 4 plates, 4 three piece cup sets, I phone case and a ruler….

A whopping 232.00 !!!!!!!!!!

I sure don’t have this kind of money hanging around, how about you?  I didn’t even look at shipping…lol

Why does it have to be so much????  Plastic, ceramic, shoes?  I know it is HER brand….how in the world she keeps going in this economy is a mystery to me….the Christmas items were a much better deal…

So go have fun and fill up an imaginary cart…..they are free!’

Enough already!


I am down for the count….again or I guess still….

Went to the doctor yesterday and I have walking pneumonia! 

Two different anti-biotics and a major cough syrup….a bunch of lymph node in my face and neck blew up….  this is the pits…still waiting on the blood work….

Still sick apparently from back in December….got a flu shot, but I guess they are saying this is a virus, not a flu….all of the doctors in my group are out sick!


Hopefully in 10 days or so I will be better….until then….please keep in your prayers, this is not fun….:(
