Yes I Did

change the title of my blog. I thought my new title describes my blog better than my business name. My life no longer evolves around a business and thought I would make this a tribute to that change in my life. I am loving my life now that I dont have deadlines to make and no longer have the stress of owning a business. Most of all, I am loving being able to spend time with my family,something I havent been able to do for years. I feel like I have missed out on alot.I guess the important thing is the new memories being made and not thinking about the times I missed out cuz I was busy or tired from running my business.Of course there were advantages to owning my own business but the disadvantages really out weigh the advantages.In the beginning I was so excited.In the end,not so much.I am very proud of myself for doing it for nine years. When businesses were coming and going all the time,I hung in there.I can honestly say I am glad I proved I could run a business. If I ever had the chance to do it again,I probably wouldn't but if I did I would definately do alot of things differently.

Just had to

I just had to post this. It is just the cutest thing.It will definately put a smile on your face.

As if I didnt-

have enough to do,I took up another hobby,beading. My 10 year old niece has been making jewelry. So when we went shopping over the weekend she helped me pick out beads, wire and tools to get started.By the time I bought everything I could have bought 2 bracelets that were already made.I guess that would be defeating the purpose,the thrill of seeing what you can make and watching it come together.I have to admit,it is pretty fun.So fun,that when I went to WalMart yesterday,I had to check out the bead section. UhOh, this is going to be addicting. We had a beading party Sunday night.My niece Allyson made the bracelet with the red beads and I made the bracelet with the blue beads. The trickiest part is getting the bracelet at the right length to fit your wrist.I think I will try making earrings next. Of course I will have to go on a all new shopping trip to buy the things I need to make those.Any excuse to shop!
