To better sleep like I had today

As I prepare to say goodbye to my current job, I am saddened by all the people I will miss. However, I know I must do for me, and my reasons for going are better off for me and my family. We all must make choices and I am happy with this one, as is my family.

So an end to now but on to better. I am not my job, it is just what I do. I have to remind myself of this sometimes, well a lot ha ha. As we all are who we are, not what job we have. I have been blessed with many people in my life, including those I have met here. I will treasure the friendships I have made and the people who have helped me so much! You will be missed as much as I am. I am also so blessed to be able to leave a full time well paying job to chase dreams and live with more simplicity (or try to be more simple lol)

August Tag Swap

Here are some tags I made for a swap I joined in August! :D The swap was hosted by pinkscrapper99 and the theme was pretty woman with a twist of using acrylic paint somewhere on the tag. I chose Clara Barton and the base paint of white and the red cross is acrylic paint.

for the future

So things will be changing here. you will still be able to find me here if you are looking but I am starting a new blog as well for more paper arts, stamping and journaling. I think it will be a good flow for me. I hope. I will still be sewing and quilting. And probably posting other things here as well. This is my bloggie after all :d I am looking forward to many big changes that I can hopefully push myself towards! :D I appreciate all who visit me and comment and share. There is such a great and sharing community online for creativity, it is always amazing.

So I really like change, normally, it is good for you.

I was very depressed well not like VERY but way more than normal for me, so i had a really tough, stressful week and the last two days especially. So really crapdoodle. BUT I have made some tough decisions that I HAVE to stick with. I have been in WAY worse situations and etc than what I ma right now and I can persevere, but I also know because of all that and all my experience I am worth more than what I am right now, as in, my situation, if that makes vague sense :D SO decisions, change, I can do this and I can be better and I can be more happy and I can make my talents work for me! I am worth more than how I ma treated at my job! I am worth enough to leave it! I can find something else that is more fulfilling in being a better environment creatively and can allow me to bloom as a person, artist and business owner. Please send me all the positive thoughts you can!

A bit of everywhere

So I really have been all over the place, I guess. I have done a lot of shopping, always fun right lol. SO I also had to do some rearranigng in the art craft area, the dining room, :). I also of course had to play with some of the new things I got. Plus this has been my four day work week, on my last day right now actually. Thoiught I would post quickly while it was still semi quiet before I go and wake everyone up. I have done a bit of sewing and some designing for some sewing. I finished up these two blocks for the SKHQB2, this is the last month for this bee. I have my DQS9 all sketched out and osme fabrics picked out, I need to start on it this week. I also have a quilt for a co worker I need to get completed so they can ship it off for a Christmas gift for their first grand-daughter. SOO sheesh now that I get all this down in writing here, I feel overwhelmed lol. But there is still plenty of time to get it done. I am just super tired and need to make myself go to bed early when I get off work in the AM, to make sure I get plenty of good sleep!

I also have been doing some art journaling and working on some ne wmini albums form tutorials I have been watching on youtube. I also put some videos up on youtube, now that is super scary lol. I never thought I would get hooked to youtube, but i have and i am loving it and learning so much! :D So on that note, I have got a long list of ideas for gifts this holiday season and just ideas I want to try. Alot of it a mix of scrapbooking, mixed media, journaling stuff.

I can not upload pictures fmor work...that stinks. I thought I woul dbe able to get them from my flickr site but it is not happening so no pictures this time around.

SO next time I will share some pictures with you guys. :D Hope you all had a great weekend!
