Buttpads Requested

Well I did it took the plunge and strapped 8 wheels to my feet and skated ( okay acutally I sat on the side lines) but if my kids would of let me I would of had a pillow strapped to my butt and went skating something about a 38 year old on skates after not doing it for 20 years SCARY. So instead I worked on a few new projects and a blanket that I have been crochetting for Dante for 1 month now ( he will be 18 years old by the time its done ) just kidding. I had an exciting time down in KK land ( aka basement) and did a few new projects they will be posted here soon but also on www.kerleyskreations.etsy.com with in the week.

Its a Monday

Well, I have been reading and reading and so busy creating that I decided to start blogging again and letting everyone know the who, what, when, where and why's of my life.

I interview today at Red Robin for a management position lets hope it happens if it does not we move on August 1st to Saudi Arabia to live with Klark my wonderful and very supportive hubby who knows I have a paper and craft addiction :)

So I opened up shop about a month ago been doing really well about 1 sale every day which is good I hear but I need to increase sales so I am off to try to figure out how to do that part of life.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful and blessed day and stay strong.

Spring is finally starting in Michigan I noticed new growth in my flower bed last week the tulips are coming yeah yeah yeah .. daffodils as well so I am excited can't wait to go pick some from the yard.

Blessings all

A long time coming

Well,today is a long time coming, i have been with a cold now for 3 weeks ugh. the kids are doing well and growing I think by leaps and bounds its so hard to believe that soon cailtin will be 15 year old where has the time gone.

I started a new business online about 3 weeks ago and I am excited about it in the least hard to believe its been three weeks since my etsy store opened

I am in the process of making new items or new things for me which is exciting and hoping that they are a hit like I THINK THEY ARE. Its been 4 months since Klark left we are still in Michigan and looking at where life is going to take us soon. I am hoping its closer to where klark can be at home.

I recently started getting into blogging so i hope that I can continue it soon ..
