Wowie! My creative brain is about to explode with all the ideas I'm comiong up with for new merchandise for online shopping and to sell at Sawdust Specialties & More (check them out on FaceBook) here in Leesburg, VA. So many ideas, so little time! Have you ever noticed that one idea leads to another, then another and before you know it, you have like 3 projects going on at once and your office/studio is a mess, filled with tid bits of creative musings and you're SO excited to work on all of these wonderful inspirations but don't know which to do first, which is why you do one thing, like put a coat of paint on one project, then start on the next while the paint dries, etc. That's how it begins and as crazy as it sounds.....isn't it wonderful? There is always a method to my madness and definitely  madness to my methods! As soon as I get things organized and finished, I'll post some pics. I love having a great day - hope you are too! {{{hugs}}}

Weirdness Beyond Normal Weirdness

Ok, this is so weird! I've been putzing around here, trying to figure out how to manage a blog, adding favorite web sites, blogs, buttons, etc and had several windows open at once. All of a sudden, the internet started opening more and more windows of this one website, over and over and over - it was the internet gone wild!(isn't there some cheesy movie about that? No wait, that's another.....nevermind) Anyway, after a frantic attempt at cancelling the extras, I managed to get rid of them using the task manager. I swear, as the last page closed, I heard a haunting "I'll be back". I think I'll go up and see what the rest of the family is doing right now. 'C ya!

Well, here I am, making another attempt at blogging something worth reading. I never realized how boring my life had become until I tried to find interesting things to write about it. It Actually isn't that boring, just selectively interesting. I've been spending time trying to figure out this entire new social networking stuff. It seems that the capabilities of it are astounding, but I've yet to exactly determine how to use it to my best advantage. there's Face Book, Twitter, this Blog, then you can link this to that and that to this other thing and that's when I lose it! Guess I'll just have to spend more time studying it. At this rate, I'll finally have it all figured out just in time for them to introduce all new versions and it'll be back to the old drawing board for me!

I've really been trying to read other folks' Face Books and blogs to see how they have put together their businesses. I've always wanted to be a "purveyor of junque" and figure that this is the best time of my life to finally make that dream a reality. I refinish furniture as well as take cast offs and old thing-a-ma-gigs and give them new life, either restoring them to their original form and use or, better yet, making some completely new item with a new function out of them. Often, I use decorative painting to highlight these home decor items, along with faux finishes and distressing to furniture. I love the visual history of old time-worn items, shabby chic and romantic looking, they just make my heart happy!

I have been a vendor at a local shop for several years now, and am in the midst of expanding my line of offerings. I also sell on eBay once in a while, but would really like to have my own web site to sell from. I have absolutely no idea how to make a logo or a nice artistic page design (been trying to get my graphic artist talented daughter to help), so seriously, if anybody has any pointers, I would really appreciate them!

Guess that about wraps things up for now. I hope that you've enjoyed reading a little bit about me and my life and look forward to sharing your thoughts and lives too! Take care and thanks for stopping by!
