Goals

You know time doesn't wait for anyone and I want to be able to set goals for myself but at times it seems very hard to do. I have decided long time ago that setting goals for myself would not be the thing to do. Mainly because of fear of not reaching those goals and being disappointed and giving up. In the past I have set goals and never reached them and became very disappointed and eventually I did give up. I am not saying that people shouldn't set goals for themselves. It probably isn’t very realistic for a person who is currently making $20,000 a year to set a goal of making $1,000,000 next year. Ok that is a bit unrealistic but there have been people have gone from rags to riches so I should say that is unrealistic. But it is important that the goals you set are YOUR goals and not those of someone else. I see this so many times when people set their goals in comparison to someone else life. Competing is never a good thing to do. Especially when you are competing with a…

Old and New Items

I just listed some new items on Etsy and on my Website. Stop on by and take a look. Some of the old items that were just recently listed have been temporarily discontinued during the warm summer months due to possible melting issues but they are back now that the weather is getting cooler and less chance of any melting problems.

Old New Item

BathTime Soap Jelly

This is just the coolest soap ever. It has the consistency of a jelly but soft and it is made out of soap. It has so many good stuff in it. Very gentle and it feels great and kids will love this too. This can be scented any way you like and it will be made to order. This does have a preservative added to make it last a little longer. It can be placed in the fridge or in a cool area. If placed in the fridge, you may want to take it out at least an hour prior to using so it won't be so cold. This jelly should last you up to 4 weeks. But you will definitely use this up before then. It is so much fun to use. A color sponge is inc…

A Special Thank You

School Book Report

Ok this is just too funny not to post!!!

Students at a local school were assigned to read 2 books, "Titanic" & "My
Life"
by Bill Clinton.


One student turned in the following book report, with the proposition that
they were nearly identical stories!

His cool professor gave him an A+ for this report.

Titanic:.... cost - $29.99
Clinton :..... cost - $29.99


Titanic:..... Over 3 hours to read
Clinton :..... Over 3 hours to read

Titanic:.... . The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and
subsequent catastrophe.
Clinton :..... The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and
subsequent catastrophe.

Titanic:..... Jack is a starving artist.
Clinton :..... Bill is a bullshit artist.

Titanic:.... In one scene, Jack enjoys a good cigar.
Clinton :..... Ditto for Bill.

Titanic:..... During the ordeal, Rose's dress gets ruined.
Clinton :..... Ditto for Monica.

Titanic:..... Jack teaches Rose to spit.
Clinton :..... Let's not go the…

A Woman Should Have

Saw this poem by Maya Angelou and just have to share it with all the woman. This is a very inspiring poem and very uplifting. Enjoy!

A Poem by

Maya Angelou, for Random House


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own,

even if she never wants to or needs to...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

something perfect to wear if the employer,

or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ..

a youth she's content to leave behind....



A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .....

a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .

one friend who always makes her laugh... and one who lets her cry..

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ....

a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...

eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,

and a recipe for a meal,

that will…

To realize
The value of a sister
Ask someone
Who doesn't have one

To realize
The value of ten years:
Ask a newly
Divorced couple.

To realize
The value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize
The value of one year:
Ask a student who
Has failed a final exam.

To realize
The value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize
The value of one month:
Ask a mother
who has given birth to
A premature baby.

To realize
The value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize
The value of one minute:
Ask a person
Who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
The value of one-second:
Ask a person
Who has survived an accident.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure it even more when
you can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend or family member:

My Latest Purchase From Etsy

Image
Midnight Creations

Yes I am at it again! I made another purchase from Etsy and from one of my favorite Sellers Midnight Creations. She has some awesome handbags at reasonable prices. I just couldn't decide what I wanted because everything she has was so colorful and bright and the selection was hard for me to decide. But I narrowed it down to a cute little writslet. Love the colors and it is perfect for just carrying a few things around instead of carrying a large handbag. But I had decided to give this cute little wristlet to my mother for her birthday on Sept 14th. So this will give me an excuse to come back for something else for myself. LOL But it was very hard to part with but I know I will be able to find something at this shop.

So I highly recommend you stop by their shop at Midnight Creations
