What a wonderful busy time of year

Christmas, what a wonderful busy time of year. At this time of year we are all busy trying to get ready for the holidays. I hope you are all taking time for yourselves too. It is very important and if you have a chronic ailment it is even more important. I have started putting a timer next to where I am working to remind me to take breaks. I just get so involved in what I am doing I don’t think to stop.
With the winter weather it is hard for people who have chronic pain and once we do get involved we have a tendency to over do. Then we suffer. So if any of you out there are like me, please be kind to yourself. It does no one any good for you to work yourself to hard and then miss out on the fun because you are to sick to enjoy it.
I have been busy making cookies, brownies and creations to give. Wrapping packages and making list. Here is a picture of one of the things I have made this week. I have a BIL who loves his cookies, cakes, brownies, you name it. He likes to eat. He is having problems with his blood sugars so is limited to how many snacks he can have. So as a joke gift I made him this little snack jar. On the ribbon (polymer clay)I printed ‘Dave’s weekly snack jar’ there is brownies on top and candies (also polymer clay) around the outside. He will love it! And the whole family will get a good laugh.
Other things I have been making can be seen in my Flickr album.
I hope you all are having a peaceful and fun time getting ready for the big day.
Until next time.
Happy Crafty Day, CraftyLinda

Problem with wordpress and other musings

I am having trouble with this new format for word press. When I go in to the page for a new post. The part where I would write the post is under the side bar. So I can only see part of what I am typing. Is anyone else out there having problems? It is frustrating to say the least. So I have taken to writting my copy in my notepad and then coping it onto the post page. Which really isn’t a bad thing that way I can save it uncase something happens.

Anyway, I have been busy this morning baking. I made 6 dozen peanut butter, choc.chip, oatmeal cookies and a pan of brownies that I put marshmellows,choc,peanut butter and rice crispies on top. YUM. My husband has promised to stay out of them..LOL The really nice thing is that my DH said he would clean up the kitchen. What a sweet man I have.

That left me with time to get on the computer and look around. I found some really nice sites but I think I will wait and talk about them tomorrow. But I will leave you with some eye candy from Ma-belette, an increditable artist. Here is her flickr link. Hope you enjoy and I will see you tomorrow.


Interesting Websites

Hello everyone, I wanted to share a couple sites with you that might help you in getting your business

started or even just get organized. I hope these help you out. I belong to a newsletter list on working

at home. It is ran by Leslie Truex.

 This is a good blog if you

are looking for work that you can do from the comfort of your home. She has a lot of usefull information.

I got my newsletter yesterday and she had an article about a new blog she is doing called ‘Better living on the web’.

that shows you how to use web tools and tricks to make work, life and play easier. The first article is about

‘Entrepreneur assist’.;jsessionid=7FBDB6C523EFBB095B36948635A1F3D6 or

This is a site where they have a collection of free business

planning and productivity tools designed with entrepreneurs in mind. You have to sign up, but once you do they have templates, planners, and a

great library where you can download books like  ‘Advertising without and angency made easy’,

‘niche and get rich’  and  ‘prefect business’ and everything is free.

There are articles about google, and wordpress just to name a few. I think it is a gold mine of information.


How much do you know about how you can use google search page? Like did you know you can use it as a calulator? This article

talks about 5


hidden functions, and most accessible from the main search box.

Here’s the link:

I hope these links help you, I haven’t had time to look into all the things that are offered but did bookmark

them to take a better look later.
