Since life has changed a bit for more; with more going on etc. I wanted to keep my etsy shop up and going, but can't list all the time, but am shooting for just listings things on Mondays or maybe even once a month. We will see how it goes...playing it by ear. :)
Today I listed...
T-shirts in S,M,L & XL
Some graphic packs...great if you want to make your own pillows, tea towels, etc. at home. These are not for commercial use; just home and if you give someone a gift.

Plus the French style graphics
There are two things I look forward to when I wake up and that is baking & art.
Although I am finishing up my master's degree in eduation ~ it is all well and good, but teaching doesn't bring quite the sparkle to my eye as the other two do. Let me explain my epiphany.
While we were on our little vacation we stopped into a little spice shop. Which was lovely by the way. I watched the owner going about her business, and chatted with her about the whys, and how comes she chose to start a spice business. This woman had a twinkle in her eye, pure passion about what she was doing. She was an investment banker before, and all the while loved food more than anything, especially spices. She devoured all she could about the knowledge of spices and what they do, how they work, and what they are good for. The passion about what she was doing spilled out all over the place and you could tell she was in her happy spot in life. I left there feeling inspired to make my eyes twinkle like that.
At 50 my life is pretty smooth; I'm chasing after a personal goal for myself ~ the degree~ and all the while love to do so many diferent things. I ask myself the question...do you want to be a classroom teacher? Eh, it would be okay, but not really that dream I have dreamed. But if you asked me the question of what in life besides love...makes my heart skip a beat...it would be art & baking. Those two things make me twinkle. Someday in my life, maybe in the near future I will be able to bundle up all the things I love to do into one and not have the stresses of finishing school looming about. It is temporary and will be well worth it. But I am longing for a laid back feeling of devouring that one special thing around me that lights me up like a Christmas tree.
So tell me....What might your passions be? Are you living them out? Are you twinkling?
Today my sweet darling turns 25 years old!! I cannot believe it; but it is true. I was 25 years old when she was born. It is amazing how time breezes by. I love you my daughter with all my heart and soul. You light up my life, inspire me, and make me smile like nobody else. Have the most precious day!!
Since we are apart and I can't bake you your favorite birthday cake I will send you a pretend one. :)
Do you have one of these sitting on your counter like always or from time to time?
