Monday Chat – Mini Teddy Bear Quilt, PG Mail, Fabric Sent, Plans for Today

chat-monday

Happy Monday everyone!

Mondays are one of my favorite days of the week.  It’s the beginning of the work week for many, and although my days are all the same, I love the idea of starting off a fresh new week of work.  I know many hate Mondays because they go back to work.  If that’s the case for you, my goodness, get another job!  We spend way too many hours working during our lifetime. Might as well absolutely love what we do!

Enough working pep talk. lol

Yesterday, Skylar and I were quite busy.  We finished packing all the fabric and I got the notice that they were picked up by my mail carrier this morning.  Then we opened peanut gallery mail but that video is not uploaded yet. It’s not even close to being completely edited.  I must work on that all day and get it up as soon as I can because it’s mailbag monday and I want it up today!

It’s a good thing I recorded a Snippets video yesterday because that’s the only video I was able to knock out. Then youtube was having uploading issues (maybe super busy, I don’t know) and it took ALL NIGHT for my video to get published.  It’s finally there.  In it, you will see me finish a mini quilt for Skylar’s teddy bear!  It came out so cute!

We also went in the cellar to look at fabric and Skylar pulled stuff she’s like me to use to make her some tops and also a pair of palazzo pants.  I hope we can do that today.  I also must schedule some bead auctions to come out on July 1st.  Must do that today because scheduling auctions is time consuming yet I’m determined to have some up and running for the first of the month as usual.

What else… not too much else to say.  I need milk so I will at least be going out for that later.  Skylar has no interest in going out during this visit.  She even said no to Dollar Tree for today and shrugged when asked if she will at least go to the fireworks.  We have not been able to record any ride along videos like I planned.  Oh well, I must go with the flow.  I want her happy here and if she wants to stay home, I’m all for that.  Because… hermit. No need to twist my arm.

Have a great Monday!  Darlene xoxo

Sunday Chat – Fabric Packing Day, Peanut Gallery Mail, Other Stuff

chat-sunday

 

Happy Sunday!

I woke up so sleepy but got up anyway.  Just so tired of being sleepy!  I went to bed at a decent hour, I think.  Just a lousy sleeper.

We had a big day yesterday.  My mother asked to go for a ride so we took her out.  No camera.  My mother does not like cameras.  It was mega hot out there but cool enough in the car.  We just rode around town a bit, showed her the mill that burned, visited the cemetery, stuff like that.  We were out for maybe an hour.

Then I finished cutting the fabric and I listed the fabric on ebay last night.  I had 12 lots this time and sold out in about 3 hours.  Today, Skylar and I will get all those packaged and ready for my mail carrier to pick up tomorrow morning.  You can see the fabric listing here and you can also see Skylar video bombing me here.  I had no clue she was behind me until I edited. lol

Today we have a big day planned again.  If my mother wants to go for another ride, we will attempt that again.  She mentioned yesterday that she’d like to go out today, but I think the mini outing wore her out a bit.  She might change her mind for today but for sure we will take her out again.  And again, no camera. I’m am constantly asked to record my mother but she hates that and it’s stressful enough to get her out so I don’t want to add to that stress by putting a camera on her.

Skylar and I have the fabric to package up then we also have a Peanut Gallery package to open.  I plan on recording that today so I can have it ready for Mailbag Monday!  And I just realized that I still have not shown her all the wonderful buttons I got from the Peanut Gallery.  I must do that!  She will absolutely love looking through all those buttons. So will I.

Derrick is in Minneapolis for a few days for his job as an independent Auto Appraiser.  There was a hail storm that damaged many cars so he is there with two other appraisers to appraise the damage of over 300 cars.  This is his first time going out in the field like this.  Usually he appraises cars in and around Memphis, maybe 3 or 4 per day.  This gig is going to be around the clock work the entire time he’s there.  But it’s a huge chunk of income for him so it’s totally worth it.  Just so happy that he has jobs like this!

I guess that’s it!  I mentioned the buttons so Skylar is all anxious for that.  Told her we have some other stuff to do first.  Buttons can wait a bit. lol  And I might record a Snippets Video today just to be sure I have something for tonight.  I love having you as part of our day!

Have a great Sunday!  Darlene xoxo

Saturday Chat – Fire, Fabric, Beads, Mail. Just So Busy!

chat-saturday

Happy Saturday!

It’s another gray day in Sanford.  I have no clue about the temperature.  It has not been too hot but very humid lately, so it feels wicked hot!

Yesterday, I ran to Marden’s to pick up fabric for another ebay listing. These will be fat eights and I hope so much to have that listed tonight.  Not sure if I can manage it, but I will try my best.

Then Skylar and I ran to Hannaford and on the way home we saw that something big was on fire.  Turned out to be one of our old mills.  I have seen several of those mills burn down in my life.  It’s very sad for me to see old buildings destroyed by fire or even worse, torn down just because they are making room for new stuff. I just love old buildings.

The plans for today are as follows.  Cutting more fabric and getting the packs ready so I can list them on ebay. I also have to record and upload the video for that. Skylar and I also want to record a peanut gallery mail video and that will go up on Monday.  I need to record a Tipster Tuesday video to go up on Tuesday, but that could wait until tomorrow.  I like to have that ready ahead of time.  If Skylar naps, I need to jump on that.

I also have to work on Paper Bead auctions for July 1st.  If I don’t have enough lots, I might skip that for July and start back up in August. But I would love to have some up for July because Skylar would enjoy helping me get them ready for the mail after they sell.  So, I better get on that!  Then there’s always hair dyeing.  Got to get that done!

Have an awesome Saturday!  Darlene xoxo
