A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

There aint no bugs on me

I was watching the dog flea commercial where the golden retriever or lab puppy sings I aint got no bugs on me. So I had to go get my golden retriever. He is so sweet. He isnt a large Golden Retriever but its still a bit much when a 75 pound dog wants to climb on the sofa and sit in your lap. After two years my cat has yet to get aquainted with the dogs. My older cats that are now gone use to look at the dogs like they were nuts trying to chase them. Kind of wish singapore was like that. He is a big old sweety peety. He has his little stuffy dog he carries with him. I wonder if he knows he is sitting on my foot LOL.

Well as for the work thing... I didnt get that job from the previous post. I probably said something stupid. Anyway today I got a call from another car dealership. The office manager asked if I could come in today for an interview. So I ran home got changed and off I went to another interview this week. It was quite obvious I got the job. I start April 30th.
This one had less hours but the other one had to many hours so it is perfect. Soon they will be moving closer to where I live.

I love those type of jobs cause you get paid for reading!

Another day

Well its another day and on three weeks of the new job. And I get a summons to the office. After a bunch of blah blah blah blah and thinking to myself yep to good to be true your gonna loose your job. But instead they cut back my hours. Great I says. I have more time on my hand as it is. Any who I went home and applied for a part time job at a car dealership. In less then 20 mins I got a phone call for an interview! Keeping fingers cross. Well the things that are going for me I know two people that work there and so I had a reference. Also I had the experience. I came prepared with questions that applied to the job. Both of those impress the interviewees. Also since I have worked at the dealership for that exact hours they were impressed that I would work every Saturday.
Now the bad side, its far, I have a second job and I was one of the last to apply for the job.

A bit of funny... when a episode of Little house on the prairie is called FRED. What you get is one drunk goat that you dont want to bend over in front of or you will be flying in the air.

What I got working for to day and what I been working on

Good Morning,

As I always say whats good about a morning? Then I answer myself only thing good about a morning is if you sleep right thru it. But the mum called the cell phone and so Elton John's tiny dancer woke me up (that's my ring tone)

Anyway its a good day ahead. I am going to run to the consignment shop ... alright its a true blue thrift shop where all clothes are a dollar. YES 1! dollar and I am going to find some fat jeans. Then I am going to run to the dollar store (see the running theme so far LOL) and buy some popcorn bags and buckets and white daisies and if I have any money left over by some of that fancy black and white yarn they have.

I am now washing a ton of skinny jeans I bought from recent trips to that store. They are to be turned into bum bags will eventually find its way into my shop! That is if I can figure it out. I don't think it will be that hard. I have lots of resources and lots of ideas. Now if I could only find a $20 in one of those pockets!

What I got cooking for craft projects (I don't know why but I really hate that word craft)

  • A ribbon purse (still have to put the beads on it)
  • A Messenger bag that turned into a camera bag (I have to line it and put the zipper in it)
  • 3 mini purses, I have to line and put beaded handles on
  • an animal print wreath, Its 1/4 done.
  • The cotton candy granny square blanket

What I do have finished is a scarf (which I wont put up for sale till the weather begins to turn a little colder) and a purty knitted purse. After my haunts all over Lexington (which is my dogs name too) I will take pictures! Maybe LOL.

Well now its good afternoon,

Well I am back from my haunts. It started out not to be such a good treasure hunt. The first thrift store did not have any fat jeans so I bought some loose some weight jeans to motivate somebody. I also bought two shirts to make purses. I was tempted to buy a couple of sweaters but held off.

Then I went to the flea market which really was not on the agenda of todoos, but it was on the way and I wanted to see if Nancy was there. She was not, but the had the cutest doxies. I wanted everyone of them! I went home with none. I take that back they don't have the cutest doxies, the cutest doxie is rubbing his back on the carpet and trying to get under the area rug... Lifts eye brow at that one! Then I went to walmart and returned that journal. got a couple of the pop corn boxes, I want more of them but I was on a budget. They are more like popcorn tubs shaped in an old timey way. I got six balls of that fancy yarn. I got two frames that are flat that I will staple screening on and make paper with. They have a word for what the screen is called (if anybody is interested in the paper making process I have a couple books on sale on how to do it at half.com) I bought one foam core board for the purse I will eventually make.

This purse, its going to be something else. I been collecting pieces for it for a while. I saw it on Crafts Coast to Coast. So far I got the Gesso, paint and paint brushes. Today I got the fabric and the foam board and the pattern (see below). Next I will need the interfacing. Yeah know I forgot what the handle was made out of. I need to re-watch that episode!

Then I went to the other thrift store. Here is where I scored. Four pair of jeans, fat jeans! I also found a purse that would be perfect to cut up and make a pattern out of. Yeah I am talking about the purse up above. Imagine four pairs of jeans for four bucks. That's a week worth of clothes! I can wear jeans at my work.

Well now I gotta go tidy up house and maybe take some pictures. For ebay and for blogger.com
