sometimes bad things aren’t so bad

As some of you might know I have been having computer problems and haven’t been on as much as I like or want to be.  But in a way it has been a good thing.  I cleaned up my clays today.  Which is something I have been meaning to do for a while.  I have this habit of not wrapping them when I have small pieces left. I would just put them in a divided container.  But now they are all wrapped and put in containers.  The ones that are really small I will use to make a chop cane.  I usually do small items so these have to be real small or odd colored for me not to save them for something else first.  I have them all in order by color.  I don’t know how long that will last but it is a start. 
I miss not being able to check out all the sites but hopefully soon I will be back up running smoothly.  Right now I am on dail up so that I can at least get on line. And I am using MSN and seem to be having problems all the time. But that is slow and as you know ties up the phone lines so I can only get in here at night usually.  And some nights I just can’t stay up.
I miss all my friends please be patience with me.  I will be back.
Our 2009 has been very snowy.  With a little freezing rain thrown in for good measure.  We are having a snow storm right now and have about 8″ on the ground with more to come.  We are cozy and have lots of food etc. so we will be fine, don’t know how much this one will bring.
Last week we were without elec. for a few hours. (8-9)  Just long enough for it to get really cold and have to sit around in candle light.  The candle light wasn’t bad, kind of romanic for this two old couple. hehe
I see there is a lot of talk going around about the new law that is going into effect Feb. 10th.  I don’t usually made and sell things for children so it is not going to hit me as hard as some.  But I am jumping on the band wagon and writting lots of letter to my state reps. and congressman.  Hopfully we can get some things done about this before it gets any worse.

If any of you know of any address that people can write to please email me and I will try to get them posted.  Thanks.

Ya’ll have a great day and don’t forget to stop by my other site.

Enough is Enough

I live in Mich and we have had the loooongest winter we have had in a long time.  We no sooner get all the snow gone and we get hit again.  We now have 6″ on the ground and were under another winter storm watch had could bring another 8-12″.  My DH just came in and said we are no longing under that warning.  Hurray!!!!!I am ready to go out and buy a full spectrum light-bulb just so I can get the sun light that I so desperately need.I have been going through winter depression!  Hopefully things will change soon and we will see Spring…

Things are looking up as far as my clay.  I had sent out some letters this week through some of the groups I am on and got back a letter from a lady asking me to bring some of my stuff in to her store to sell.  That makes me feel really good.  Don’t know how it will turn out but just getting my stuff out in the public is a help.  So now I have two places locally that I sell thru.  With different things in each one.

Also I am getting ready to teach a class.  And hopefully that will be the start of something bigger too.  I don’t have any room at my home to have a class so I am looking into some place that might let me use their extra room.

I have been really business getting ready for my class.  I have to go 45 miles to a store (Micheal’s) that sells polymer clay, so I haven’t had time to look around online but hopefully I will be able to post to my faves over the week-end.
