What day is it?

All this "hibernating" lately, I don't know what day it is! I feel like I have been on vacation! I am open today!!!! I hope I get a little traffic. I have some new goodies that are fabulous! I also have some sales going on- stop in, pick up a treat at the bakery and get out of the house!

Here we go with another snow day- Mommy and Wilson "working" together at the Gallerage. I am open right now, but I don't plan on staying open until 6:00- it just doesn't make sense in this weather. so I will have an early day and go home watch Oprah.

Turning a new leaf?

I had my yearly Doctor's appointment this past Monday. As usual the topic of losing weight came up. My Doc, who is very "new age" and alternative when possible, prescribed a book! It is called The China Study, written by T. Colin Campbell- a former Cornell Prof. It is a fascinating read- I highly recommend it. After reading the intro I was all about a "whole food diet" with only 5% animal protein! In my head, this is a doable idea. In my kitchen it is a bit harder to fathom. My plan is to do 2 days a week vegan- that seems to be manageable. So I have the wheat berries simmering on the stove for my salad for lunch, and the whole wheat veggie lasagna ready for dinner- (made with soy cheese). I did really enjoy the Irish oatmeal for breakfast, although Wilson wanted a few mini chocolate chips sprinkled on it before he would eat it. I guess I can't expect him to be as excited about this new healthier way of eating over night. Time to go chop some vegetables, soy milk anyone?

What is going on???

It has been a slow week! I have had Wilson to keep me company- winter break is no break for a mommy! Keeping him occupied and still getting some work done is always a challenge. I tend to turn to the computer (my version of the "electronic babysitter") when things get rough! That, and he LIKES to shovel- it has been a good week for shoveling.

On a budget!

My husband has put me on a strict budget. Tough times call for creative thinking, and rolling lots of coinage! I have many little receptacles that I dump change in. Over the period of about 5 years a large tray on my dresser has been my favorite. This tray is big and piled high with "spare" change. The need for a dye job and hair cut has forced me to attack my tray! I rolled $158.00! My roots are getting done!
I also found some lost treasure under all that change! Earrings that had gone missing, rubber bands, sewing needles, movie tickets, hair clips, old smarties, chapstick, satin ribbon, receipts, beach glass, lucky stones, clothing tags, buttons, and a number of "important" names and phone numbers of people I don't remember- sorry I didn't call! Anyway- I can get my hair done, and I have some "mad money" left over.

My Wooden Heart!

I was given a bag of these plywood cut-out hearts. They were screaming "Paint Me"! I love them. This one is almost finished and I have 2 more in the works. They are HAPPY HEARTS!
I will be at the Gallerage today hanging some new artwork, and getting a delivery of the most FABULOUS body products! I have been using a sugar scrub by Kash Iraggi for a week now, and I my skin feels incredible- I also smell pretty good! The Balance Aromatherapy products are highly recommended!

going to the post office

I finished this order for champaign flutes- I think the look great. Now the worry begins. I need to pack them up and ship them to Florida. I always worry about glassware getting there in one piece. Almost everything I do is "breakable", but stemware just seems to be a bit more fragile. Lots od bubble wrap and peanuts!
