3+ Year Break

Well, I can honestly say that is has been awhile. Over three years to be exact.

There have been a lot of changes including additions to the family (only furballs), love, heartache and all the good stuff in between.

I am going to try and get back into the swing of things (even though I don't think I was ever in the swing of things) and hope to show you my new adventures in life.

Slacking And Waiting

Slacking, something I excel at! I know last week (?) I was talking about putting new styles up at discounted prices. Well I started by discounting certain ones in my shop first, I had pictures taken of all the new ones too so there's not a ton left to do besides listing. Well that's where the problem comes in! It's so easy but I hate it sometimes, I'm not 100% happy with my photos since I don't have my regular set up and computer where I edit the photos. I'm going to blame that on the fact that I'm not getting them on. It also doesn't help I've been working a lot more at my other job because they let one of the girls go and didn't have a replacement.
Another thing holding me back is working on the house. Not sure if I told you or not but we didn't close on the 1st :( so now I have to wait until they get everything all together and then we can close. The good news is they let me in early and I started cleaning and prepping for painting and sanding the floors so hopefully it won't take to long after I do move in. We will see. Wish me luck!!
I should have some photos of my thrifting goodies up soon so keep an eye out!

Out with the old in with the new!

That's always seemed to be a good motto to live by.
I recently found out the supplier I use for certain plugs will be discontinuing a lot of styles I use. I am taking this opprotunity to revamp my shop. I have already started to discount the styles that will no longer be carried and may even discount them more in the future depending on how fast they go. Once moved into the new place I'm going to focus on many new styles of plugs that have been lurking in my head for quite some time now.
Go check out what I have and see what's on sale! I will also be adding a bunch more within the next couple of days (hopefully along with some new vintage goodies!).
It's looking like August is going to be a SALE MONTH! Who knows what I'll uncover and want to sell once I unpack my trailer.

Ever wonder where old home movies on reels go???

I BUY THEM!!! I got a ton of goodies today including some old home movies on reels, some owls, film canisters, seahorses and a ton more! It was raining when I went out to the estate sales so not as many people were out at them (it was perfect!). I'll probably be running around all day tomorrow going to more but heres a peek at some of my goodies I got today

I'm not going to lie, my blog needs a massive facelift along with my etsy. I have been meaning to do this for quite sometime but never got around to it.

Living with my parents at the moment is...well frustrating to say the least.
I have a tiny space in the garage where I do my work and it seems to be getting smaller and smaller with each week while someone (usually one of my brothers) puts things on or near my work space or parks a golf cart closer and closer to it. I really should have rented out a studio this month! But there's not much longer until we have our own place so I can manage.

There has been a nice heat wave going through our area this week too. I am actually enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. I have been riding bikes A LOT more than I used to and it's great, I'm trying to get toned up and be a little healthier than I used to be.

I've also been looking at paint colors for the new place! It's so close and once we get in the cleaning, painting and sanding will begin and I want to be prepared.

My camera is down at the moment and I still have to make a new photobox (waiting on the supplies to show for cheap or free, I'm planning on making an awesome heavy duty one) so nothing new to show you at the moment except for what I had photographed before I moved out of my apartment, those will be going up today!

Some other shop news is about my plugs. I will be discontinuing certain styles because the supplies will no longer be avalible to me, good thing I stocked up! I will be having a very large plug sale in Aug I'm juist not positive when yet (depends when I get the house all set up and moved in). With that news I will leave you with a photo of one of my new items!

Great News!!!

Okay so I know I haven't been on here lately, I blame the craziness that has been going on all around me! I almost have everything packed and ready to move. My apartment is full of boxes, it's depressing. We haven't been home a lot except to sleep (one of the reasons being that my apartment is so depressing!) Milo has play groups throughout the week and that gets us up super early! Then it's a lot of running around, cleaning the new place, packing and cleaning up the old place (finally shampooed the carpets! Almost in move out condition).
I have some super fantastic news!!! I got a house! It's amazing too this is the first and only one where I'm not nervous about buying. With all the other houses it just didn't feel right and this one defiantly does! It does need a new roof but I think we will wait until next year for that other than that it needs a super cleaning and paint. It's a 2 bedroom and 900 square feet so a good size, walk up attic and 1.5 bath (with the other bathroom being in the basement). The garage is AMAZING! It's insane and I believe I'm going to be doing a lot of upholstery in there. Everything is locked in so it's mine for sure!! And the neighborhood is soooo nice! We won't be closing until August 1st so that's a bummer but it will be worth it. Because of this awesome news I am having a sale in my shop! 35% off everything!! Not sure how long it will be on so if you've been eying something grab it now!

Still house hunting. Either I'm to cheap or the banks are dumb...I'm going with the banks are dumb.
Prices are still going down and there's more and more houses coming on and they think putting a house (that's super run down and possibly won't be able to qualify for a loan) up for $50,000 is a good price. I understand they need to make their money back but I don't see how these houses will ever sell for anything above $25,000 and that's pushing it. I'm sure if I keep going I'll get a great deal but I've been in far to many houses! It's actually pretty interesting and with each house I get more of an idea of what I want (it changes periodically).
On a different note, we finally have awesome weather! Pretty sure we'll be going out on a trolly ride today if we get enough done beforehand. The boxes in my place keep piling up!!! And we're getting rid of more and more. I'll probably be ready to move by mid month.
Milo had his first T-ball game yesterday! They did way better than I expected them to, the last practice everyone was kind of all over the place :/ So we'll be working on grounders today too!
Lady has a vet appointment tomorrow. She's been having trouble using her litter box so I'm pretty sure she has a urinary track infection and hopefully that's it and she's just not being territorial (don't think that's it because she pees in random spots, her new one is the bathroom sink UGH!). We're also finally getting her spayed but that's on the 30th of this month, same day I have to be out of my apartment....lets just say this month is going to be insane.
