Yeah! It's Friday.
So the Martha thing hasn't lived up to its hype yet. I knew not to get my hopes up. I just wish I could get more sales. But, I also see all the fabulous things that all the creative people on Etsy make and think, "Hey. Someone ought to buy these. " It is a shame to see all the talent that is out there and know that it is not being appreciated.


Spoiler Warning.....NOT

Sorry, not much to spoil this week. This is what happened...crazy weirdness and not a single scene with Sawyer.

More hotness. Killer arm warmers in my favorite two colors!

What do you think of this killer purse?
Just finished this about an hour ago.
I love it.
Don't know if I can sell it.
I guess I'll give it a shot. I can always keep it if it doesn't sell.

Tired, Sick, Want to Scream

You know, I can take a lot of things coming through my email box. I have read and deleted thousands of worthless emails. And, I have been offended before. I love Jesus. I don't have to send your email out just to certify that. But, today's offense, by yet another of my coworkers, makes me want to respond right back to them. But I don't dare of course. Might make someone mad. I have to work with these people! Well, today, I got another Hillary bashing email. Now, even if I didn't support her, I would be offended. Have I got a hateful, name calling email about any other candidate? Of course NOT! Why do we, especially in the south, feel it is okay to downgrade a strong woman? I am offended. I am offended. I am offended. What else can I say.

Ebay Kicked Me Off Today

We got up this morning and had an email from ebay saying they had removed my listing. I was trying ebay out, one last ditch effort to get it sold. It IS almost Spring you know. Anyway, apparently it is illegal to use the word "like" in the listing title. I really think they searched and found the etsy comment in the description and bumped me off because of that. What do you think? I should have never even bothered. Like I should have told them that like I was a teenager in the 80s and I like talk like that like all the time. Remember the Valley Girls. I always wanted to be a Zappa!

Monday, Monday, Monday

Yes, I am just continuing with this blog, and my two jobs. I am starting to feel like Etsy is a job. I wish I could do it full time. There are so many things I would like to make. So many things I would like to try. Just don't have time. I haven't used my sewing machine in so long. I am sure it misses me. Have I told you about my sewing machine? Of course not. It was my mothers. She bought it when she was in college at a discount. It is a fabulous baby blue Singer. I love it. I have not used many other machines in my life. Just in Home Ec back when they used to have Home Ec. I love it and I don't know if I could ever learn to use any other one!

Made it in a treasury.

Still Thinking About Lost

Okay, can't get that image of Sawyer out of my head if you know what I mean. Looking for a sale on Etsy today. Just one. If there is anyone out there in the middle of the snow storm in the East, you need what I got!

Lost ...spoiler warning!

Okay, there have been complains sooooo... I am covering up the spoiler below. I love Lost, but I would hate to be told what was going on. Anyway, I can't stand to wait for it!

OMG Kate is a kidnapper too. Is Claire the person that gets killed? Will someone please kill Ben already? What do you think.

Etsy Seller Red Raider 14: American Idol Night

Etsy Seller Red Raider 14: American Idol Night

American Idol Night

Hey, I made my first trade today. It was actually exciting that I could get something I wanted and that someone else wanted something I make. If you look at my sold items it is pretty crazy that there are five identical items out of six.

So, anyway, I was knitting through all of the Idol tonight, but I think the people who went home were about right. I would have picked someone else besides Colton, but he still wouldn't have been around much longer. Anyone else think that we could just fast forward to the top 12 right now. Anyone else have trouble telling the difference between all the young blonde girls? Just wondering.

Today's Craziness

It has been a long year. I'm talking school year. I teach fourth and fifth grades in a very small rural school. Now, when I say very small, I know some people probably think I mean just a few thousand people. No, small to me, since I started the fifth grade myself, is about ten kids per class. My school has a total population of about 130 students, in grades PK to 12. OKay, do you believe me. My fourth grade class started out as the smallest in the school and has now dwindled down to just four students. Luckily, they are all fun, interesting kids.

Now to the crafts. I started watching and shopping etsy last fall, mainly because of some of my favorite sellers from ebay. Poppy and Turtle. I will talk more about my inspirations later. So, I said, I can do this. I am always making stuff, and then it just lays around the house or I end up giving it to someone. So I started making things with the intent of selling them and started my own store. So far, I have sold five items. I am hoping for more though.

Oh, but there has been more to my year. I will talk more about it another day. I wrote a novel in a month. Yes. I wrote over 50,000 words in the month of November, and many of my students wrote novels too!

Let me know if you see and read this. In other words, is there anyone out there?
