The Gypsy Moi.

If anyone knows about any jobs in Asheville NC, I would love to hear about them. I am well experienced at customer service, love engaging customers and love being creative. I could be an, I WOULD be an asset.

Update on trying to move to N.C......not going to happen any time soon unfortunately. Still, one CAN have pipe dreams, eh?

Feeling a wee bit jaded, some stress going on at home on the work front. THIS TOO SHALL PASS....

We Can All Breathe Now

Phew, it is over for another year!

I hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday, I know we did. Very relaxing, doing whatever we wanted, and guilt free!

Ok, so this one could use some work.

Again, just pulling together a few bits and pieces, I threw this together. I do not have a fireplace mantle, so the top of an unused and ugly fish tank will have to do. I am here to tell you that polishing all my silver took for evaaaaaaa.

Not as good as the 'professional' one, but not bad for just using what I had on hand!

Bloggers metamorphasis

I think that my blog is going to turn out to be of a stream of consciousness more than anything else! I was looking at a fav blog of mine, "Just Something I Made", and went back a year to view posts. Cathe Holden, the blogger/creator, creative muse, all around very clever person, has changed her focus a couple of times. It is so cool to watch someone evolve. I have the feeling that I am going to follow a similar path. This old steam train is a bit slow getting going, but weeee watch me when fed enough coal and I start to really roll!

Time for work, will write more when I get back. (I feel a roll coming on).

Stopped at the Dollar Tree on my way home from work. I swear you can always find something useful there! I got two rolls of red crepe paper for making Valentine's rosettes, a really cool fold able storage box made from plastic, and a pack of 15 note cards in really nice colours, some of the blank cards are scalloped and the rest are plain. You can never have too many blank cards in your stash, to embellish.

OK so I think I have the posting part of a blog down, next I need to take some great pics so I can give you a visual aspect as well as verbal.

I hope I haven't made someone cross by posting this lovely picture. I must remember to save the links so I can give the creator credit, hehe.

Dreary Saturday.

Bleh, another wintry day here in Florida (which means it is raining and windy). Snow in England though, so things could be worse. Thank heavens for my studio and lovely pink goodness to brighten things up! I am already over Christmas and moving on to creating beauty for Valentines Day. I will be sharing pictures of some of my projects shortly.

For some reason this Christmas seems really unexciting. I don't feel that 'holiday bustle' in the air. Is it just me or does anyone else sense that? I was hoping to have my son here for Christmas on his leave from the Army, but he has gone home to Los Angeles, so that could well be the reason for my lack of Christmas enthusiasm.

Just to let you know, this is my first attempt at a full blown blog, so bare with me if things are not quite right at first! My inspiration comes from all that I see on the web and the beauteous artwork of The Background Fairy, to whom I am so thankful for the look of my blog.
