Not Much

I know it’s been a while since I’ve actually wrote something worthwhile. Well, I am still alive. I’ve just been working odd hours and lately I just want to go to bed after work. Saturdays I’m now working nearly 9 hours. For the past two weeks though I’ve had three days off in a row. On these days off my body just doesn’t want to do anything.

When it comes to life, I am dating. I’m dating someone I’ve honestly loved for a while. I adore him and I’m happy for the first time in a long time.

Everything Fall

Horror Pack

First I want to talk about something neat I came across while just randomly looking through things online. You all know I do love a great subscription box and the horror themed one I used to get just didn’t excite me. I think that’s mainly due to the fact I’m not a huge fan of current horror.

What can I say, I love what I grew up with.

Leading Up To That First Kiss

This week has just been one of those weeks when you want to hide under a rock. For me it has been anyways.

The one highlight of the week is the fact that I’ve been able to keep up with uploading on DA [LINK]. I know it sounds like a small thing, but it’s a major thing for me. I had a bad habit of editing pictures and just letting them sit on my hard drive and not uploading them until months later. That’s the main reason it took me so long to get my DA account up to date. Ugh.

The goal is to update every Friday, this is the first Friday since I set the goal. Haha. So I guess I shouldn’t celebrate until I’ve done it for a month.

I was going to work on a dress today, but honestly all I wanted to do was stay in bed. I woke up with a lovely ear ache. It’s not as bad as ones in the past, it’s just kind of like a dull tooth ache. It’s just really annoying.

Since it’s still winter there’s another snow storm coming in this weekend.

I want grass and flowers!

I still haven’t had any calls from all the jobs I’ve been filling applications out for. I think that’s kind of helped with my depression, the feeling that I can’t even get a job…I feel like a real winner. >_<

Something kind of awesome that’s happened this week, my niece is potty training! She’ll be three at the end of May and well her mother hasn’t taken the time really to do it – well to do much of anything with her.

She’s been great at it but she did have two accidents – she wasn’t pulling her pants down far enough. So now she just strips down…I guess that works so you’re not getting your clothes messed up. Haha.

The super funny thing is that her potty is sitting in the living room. So any time she has to use it and I’m walking through or standing in the living room she puts her hand up and tells me to leave. In the end though you’ll do whatever you can to potty train a kid.

Last week my older brother bought her some scented fingernail polish.

Pink – Watermelon, Yellow – Lemon, Orange – Orange, Green – Green Apple, Purple – Grape

I painted her fingernails last week when he gave it to her, and I had to paint her fingernails again today. The bad thing is the fingernail polish isn’t the fast drying kind – which is what a 2 year old needs. So she has spots of it missing on her fingernails.

The fingernail polish actually smells super good. Which I was surprised about because most “scented” things never smell like what they should.

Depending on how my cold is and how the weather goes I’m suppose to have a date Tuesday night.

Honestly I’m scared. I’m scared that I’ll become attached, I’m scared that I’ll fall for him. I know I’m not in control of any of those things, that’s the thing that scares me the most. I’m also fearing him getting here and me just letting him down. Considering the distance between us too…that’s a reason I’m scared to become attached and fall for him.

Distance sucks.

Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed talking to him a lot. We’re both interested in some of the same things. And he’s a really nice guy. I’m just scared of things I can’t control.

Got Me Twisted All Out Inside

New Hair Color

First: New hair color! ^_^ Okay so it’s not a new hair color for me to use, but it’s new considering how long it’s been since I’ve had it this color. I have to say it feels amazing to have this color back. ^_^ Tomorrow I’m going to have the sides shaved and maybe a little length taken off.

Oh and I have to buy a new nose ring. I have a nose ring in but it’s an old one. See I guess it got stuck on my shirt when I took it off…no idea where it went to.

Since the weekend I’ve been sick with a dang cold. It was like just within minutes I was sick. I am feeling better then I had been though. My nose and throat are the two main issues. My nose is just stuffy, my throat hurts.

Yesterday when I went out to get the hair dye and something else I did pick up some lemon green tea bags. So I’ve been having hot tea every day.

Apple Pie Cookies

Saturday I made apple pie cookies. The picture above is an example of what the ones I made look like. The following picture is the two my niece made.

Apple Pie Cookies

Even though I’ve been sick this week I’ve still been hard at work on a few things.

I did finally get something like a closet! Okay so really it’s a bookcase, but at least I have a place to put my clothes. So I started working on that over the weekend. I pretty much have all my clothing in the bookcase, now I just have to finish cleaning where my clothing was. I was also forced to get rid of a lot of clothing because of lack of space – but it was a good thing.

I’ve also been sewing on my Halloween costume. Today I finished the skirt and belt. Tomorrow I’m going to finish my top – which is just adding an additional strap to it. ^_^

And the major thing I’ve been looking forward to for months…MY ETSY SHOP! Right now I don’t really have a lot on there. A few tote bags, earrings, nothing major. I’ve just waiting to get some business going before I fill the shop with more items. If there’s anything you’d like to see in my shop, let me know! ^_^

I do have a side order of a set of navy earrings, patriotic scarf and patriotic tote bag to finish getting together. The Scarf is finished, but the earrings I messed up. I kind of forgot they were in the oven and well…they look dead. Haha. I’m going to do them tomorrow while I’m cutting out the pieces to the tote bag.

And if you want a custom tote bag, it does cost more then the ones I already have finished – because I have to buy the fabric and some cotton is $10/yard. For a custom tote bag I’ll have to charge $25 to $35 (shipping included).

Since I have my bank account all worked out this means I have a paypal – so I’m totally willing to do orders beyond the etsy shop. ^_^ Shipping is just going to cost a lot if you’re outside the US.

Also I should have my photo gallery finished up by the end of the week, so I’ll be posting that link. It’s just a photo gallery of all my concert pictures and so far all the pictures I’ve taken this year.

On the 26th I went to Cleveland to see Sundowner [LINK] with Jason and a few of his friends. When Jason had first mentioned I did take a listen to a song, what can I say I’m a sucker for acoustic music – as long as it’s good acoustic. And the show was at a venue I had never been to – Now That’s Class [LINK].

I had an awesome time at the song, even though I really only knew one song by heart. As usual I took a load of pictures so I had to share a few. I have the rest uploaded at my photo gallery, which is still under construction.

Yep, photo gallery. It will be so much easier to upload pictures on there and keep them up to date then it is the way I have pictures uploaded on here. My only question is what categories should I have? Right now I only have the Concert section up and done. I was considering making the main categories: Concerts, Nature, City, Countryside, Animals. There will be subcategories within those.

Aside from working quietly on the photo gallery I’ve also been busting my ass on my Halloween costume. Oh yeah! And I can finally share what I’m going to be. I’m going to be a belly dancer! ^_^ The idea sounded fun so I figured why not. I’ve made everything for my costume as well. Right now I’m in the middle of doing all the beading on the top. The colors are two shades of green and then blue. Right now I’m adding the blue beads to the top, then I have some clear ones I’m going to add on…and last of all is finishing/fixing the sequin work on the top. The other headache is the belt. On accident I put the hooks too close tot he edge so it doesn’t fit as it should.

I also have an apron I’ve been working on. The color combo is black, white & hot pink. It’s super cute and I think the person I’m making it for is going to love it. I have leftover fabric from the apron so I’m going to either make something like a tote bag or matching pot holders to go along with it all. I’m just not sure. I do have to re-cut one piece of the apron, but it won’t take that much fabric at all to re-cut what I messed up. I just didn’t measure the length right, but considering where I was cutting the fabric I’m surprised I wasn’t further off then I was.

I still have the goal of at least having an Etsy shop open by the end of the month. I haven’t given up on that yet, it’s just taking me a while to do it because I want to make sure the pictures for it are all great and everything runs smoothly with it. I also want to have a few envelopes on hand before I start selling so I don’t have to run out to stores to try to hunt them down.

This weekend started off with watching Jason and his friends play Magic [LINK]. People think I’m telling a lie when I say I like watching people play (even video games). I’ve always been a people watcher though.

After the gathering was over we cuddled and he had me watch the first episode of¬†Continuum [LINK]. Yeah, it was new to me since I don’t really watch any channel side from Food Network [LINK] anymore. But it was a good show, I’m just not really into shows with that kind of storyline I guess.

Sunday afternoon we watched ABC’s Of Death [LINK]. Loved it! It was the first time we both had seen it. I really can’t wait for 2 to come out…but that’s not until next year! =_=

We went out for a late lunch after, then he brought me home. I’m always bummed when I know it’s time for me to come home, but it just makes me excited to see him when I see him the next time. I do think it’s good that we don’t see each other every day. It makes the time we’re together even more special.
