It has been over a year since I have posted on this blog. I have been incredibly busy, which is a blessing since I have had my share of health problems along with the usual Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis problems. A lot of these problems started after the first of the year and are still continuing. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel since I’m in pain therapy at one of the best pain clinics in the state of Ohio.

My shop on Etsy has taken off and has kept me so busy that I have not had any real time off since last Christmas! I’m going to slow down as much as possible next month so I can get some much needed sewing and quilting done. I’m also hoping I will be out of pain by then (fingers crossed).

I’m always adding new pieces of jewelry and I hope you will take the time to stop by and check out my shop. If you find something you would like, just mention that you read this blog and I will give you a special discount. My Etsy shop is located at:

Once I build up my jewelry collection, I’m planning on adding some of my original handmade bags and quilted items. You will see some of the bags I have made in the past 10 years at the top of this blog.

FREE SHIPPING!

There are three birthdays in my family this month. Mine was yesterday; my beautiful granddaughter’s is on September 18th; my son-in-law’s is on September 27th. Because of this, I’m offering FREE SHIPPING for anything that is purchased from my shop on Etsy all month long! Even though I’m still running 10% off everything every Wednesday and Thursday, you will save more money if you use the FREE SHIPPING coupon instead for U.S. domestic shipping only. I wish I could offer the free shipping for International orders but shipping prices are just too high. However, if any of you from a different country want to buy something from me this month, I will take off whatever the shipping rate is in the U.S. You will still save more money this way! Most of my shipping rates begin at $5.00 and go up to $20.00 (this is for the baby quilts) in the U.S. For more information, please go to:

Remodeled Bathroom!

A few years ago, the tile around our tub was collapsing and falling apart. So, I found a great tile design online, printed it out for my husband, and he put new tile up around our tub and on other sections of the bathroom walls. He and I decided that the new tile should go all the way up the wall until it hit the ceiling. We are tall people, especially our son who is almost 6’4 and when we showered, the old tile was barely past the tops of our heads. When the water hit us, it just sprayed all over the wall above where the tile stopped. That caused the wall and tile to buckle. That’s why when he put up the new tile, we decided that to keep this from happening again, it had to go all the way up the wall around the tub. He did such a beautiful job and with the

tile design, I found that we had to buy a clear glass shower door. It not only shows off the beautiful tiled wall but it also opens up our small bathroom!
