03/08/2013: Blizzard!    Saturday, March 9, 2013

Well, this was an absolutely crazy week! I always take Monday and Tuesday off to be with Mr. Virgo, but I usually get right back on here bright and early Wednesday morning. When I "quit" my job in December, I actually stayed on to do the clinical research, which is very part time. Wednesday was my day to go in and see patients so it was a 12 hour day. Thursday morning I took the Toyota in to have the tires changed. There was a shimmy in the front end that needed attention. The mechanic called me to say it needed new struts, shocks, brakes, oil change, and tires.

2/27/2013: To Pin or not to Pin...    Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I have had a Pinterest account almost since it started and for the most part, it just floats out there exposing my innermost dreams to the world. I love it and could become seriously obsessed with it, if given the time. I have been told by those whose opinion I hold in high regard that I should put my jewelry on my Pinterest page. Here's the flaw in that logic as I see it. If everyone uses Pinterest the way I do, they are out there cruising for ideas to make their own stuff.

2/15/2013: Motivation    Friday, February 15, 2013

What motivates you? If you are a creative person, putting your heart and soul into your art is a catharsis, of sorts. But what keeps you coming back for more? What keeps you sitting at your easel or workbench for 10 hours straight? For me, it's a way of paying it forward. I am closing in on my 60th birthday. I have been around the block a couple of times and have had some wonderful, and not so wonderful, experiences in my 60 short years on this planet. I have always been creative but I have not always been able to spend large chunks of time creating.

2/13/2013: Time's a' Wastin'!    Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Wow, tomorrow is Valentine's Day already! I swore...SWORE that I was not going to spend my two days off with Mr. Virgo on the computer and what did I do? Monday...connected with other like-minded business on Facebook all day. A great way to free advertise each other's businesses. OK, Monday is Mr. Virgo's day to rest and catch up on some zzzzz's on the couch so I could have sat and watched him sleep or be productive...good choice, I thought. Then yesterday, it just so happens that my contract renews on my phone just before Valentine's Day.

2/6/2013: Better Late Than Never!    Wednesday, February 6, 2013

I had a late start today. You ever have one of those days that you REALLY want to get a ton done because your attentions have been spent elsewhere and you REALLY need to catch up? Well, that was today. I woke up early. Really early. Like 4:30am early. TOO early! I was debating what I would work on first today and prematurely delighting in how much I was going to get done. I stretched. I yawned. I looked back at the clock and it was.......9:30am!!! As in...FIVE hourse later! No, no, no! This cannot be possible!
