Thursday Chat – Dating Messages, Quilt Block Party Revisited, Plans for Today

chat-thursday

Happy Thursday!

It’s kind of hard to believe it’s already Thursday. This week flew by.  And it’s almost cold.  I think many would have their heat on today.  I’ll just enjoy the coldness and the grayness. I’m even drinking a hot coffee, not iced coffee. What a perfect day!

Once again, I was a busy girl yesterday.  You know why? Workaholic.  I can’t even imagine going through life not enjoying your work. And for so many, that’s the way life is.  How on earth does anyone survive that?

I embellished one of my old Quilt Block Party blocks.  Remember those? If you’ve been with me for a while I’m sure you do!  My only regret is that I did not get crazy enough with the embellishing.  I held back because I have 20 blocks to get through.  I think I’ll be embellishing more and I may hit the first block with more lace and buttons and some hand stitching too.  I want the blocks to be very crazy and totally funkified!

Then I sat down last night and read the messages I got on the dating site. Too freaking funny!  I’d say all but just maybe one or two of those guys are scammers.  Does not matter to me at all.  Gives me plenty of content! lol

Today, I really hope to record Fan Mail Friday so I will have that ready for tomorrow.  And I have a new quilt block I’d like to try out.  And gee wiz, I need to knock out an upcycled fashion!  I think I’m in the mood for that today. Must be in the right mood.

And there’s always fabric to cut.

Still not sure if I’ll be offering this batch on eBay or on this website.  eBay is good for publicity, but often times I sell out in just a few hours so that does not give me much publicity at all.  That’s a lot of fees for just two hours of hosting my fabric.  Yet it’s so convenient and I’m willing to pay for that convenience.  Still thinking about it.

Have a great Thursday!  Darlene xoxo

Wednesday Chat – ZC Update, Dating Plans, Chevron Block, Plans for Today

chat-wednesday

Happy hump day everyone!

It was a week ago today that Skylar left.  It feels like I have not seen her for a month.

Yesterday I was a very busy girl.  First, I recorded an 8 Month Zero Carb Update and explained that even though I was not eating this way to lose weight, I ended up losing weight. And that pretty much shocked me because I eat a ton of meat. But the ZCers swear that calorie count does not matter. I believe them now. lol

Then I ran to Roger’s for more meat and milk. While there, I discussed my Dating Series plans with you!  I have lots of decisions to make. It will be fun to see if I ever go on an actual date.  I highly doubt it. lol

I also knocked out another quilt block. This one is a Chevron 4 Patch made with Half Square Triangles.  I really love the possibilities with this one! Be sure you watch the end to see all the different designs you can create by turning the blocks in different directions. So fun!

Today I’d like to embellish one or two of my old Quilt Block Party blocks.  And I still have to come up with an Upcycled Fashion.  Those scare me! Just very hard to do something when you don’t know what you are doing. LOL

Looks like I won’t be going out today. At least I don’t have any plans to.  I love when I can just stay home.  My mother has her personal aide coming today so I can’t record during that time. But it will give me time to cut fabric.  I can also work on paper beads during that down time.  I will find a way to keep myself busy.  I love the new personal aide so much!  She is a lifesaver!

Have a great Wednesday!  Darlene xoxo

Tuesday Chat – Wonky 4 Patch, New Schedule, Tons of Fabric, Plans for Today

chat-tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday was a busy day!  I went to Marden’s with Sandy Pro before noon and we picked out 80 different prints of fabric!!!  Yes, 80!  It was 285 yards worth.  I went back later in the day to pick it all up and that was a workout!  Even after it was cut, it completely overloaded the shopping cart.  I did not have my camera so did not take a pick of the cart, but you can see it all on the bed here.

Today I will start cutting for Fabric Friday.  I planned on two lots for each of the next two Fabric Fridays, but then they had some new fabric that just can in with very small prints so I stocked up on that too.  I might offer three prints each week. Not sure yet.

As for videos yesterday, I read my new video schedule.  And I got many asking why the dating series is not on there.  Simple reason… I have not started that yet.  But I will start soon.  I seriously doubt that I’ll ever get a date because it will be very hard to get someone to agree to date on camera.  And I have no interest in dating for the sake of dating.  NO interest! lol  This is all for my channel and only for my channel.  I plan on starting out by reading my dating profile to you and then we can at least see if anyone replies.  It will be fun and I think funny!

I also uploaded a new easy quilt block.  But I totally screwed up the presentation at the end.  It’s something new I’m trying and I realized when I went to bed that I did it wrong.  I think I’ll do better next time.  I’m sure there are some easier tools to show how the completed quilt might look, but I don’t like the online tools I’ve used so far, so I kind of created my own tool. lol  I’ll get better at it.

Today I will cut fabric and also pick out clothing for a new upcycled fashion.  I have no clue what I want to make. The other videos on my short list are the ZC update (so NOT looking forward to that one due to the hate, lol) and my dating profile.  I hope to have all those done by the end of the week.

And I’m still looking for someone to post coupon deals or online deals on my blog.  This is a commission gig. You must know how to use wordpress and you obviously must know how to match up coupon deals. If interested, email me at peanutgallery@darlenemichaud.com.

Have a great Tuesday!  Darlene xoxo

Monday Chat – Doodle Reload, Busy Yesterday, Fabric Shopping Today, More

chat-monday

Happy Monday everyone!

Yesterday was a long day for me.  I had to cut and cut and cut fabric. Then I had to get 30 orders printed out and ready to mail.  This took me all day and into the night!  I did not plan this well at all. lol  But I got it done. All the fabric orders are waiting for the mail carrier.  He better do his job the right way! lol

If I’m going to increase the amount of fabric listings, I for sure need to shop for fabric earlier in the week so I can get all the cutting done before I list the fabric.  I plan on shopping for today for the upcoming Fabric Friday. Not sure what I’ll get for yardage. Still need to figure that out.

Since I was so super busy yesterday, I did not have time to record anything.  I was so bummed!  I was able to put up a Doodle Reload for your viewing pleasure. I’m still bringing all my old doodles to my main channel and I have a lot more to go. So those are good for when I simply can’t record. They are still a bit of work since I need to swap out the music and take new pics. I also have some editing to do because I didn’t know what I was doing 2 years ago. That’s why the lighting is always so terrible on those doodles.  I had no clue how to use my camera.

Dating series. Yes, it’s happening.  Not sure I’ll ever go on an actual date, but I’m working on my profile and need to take some pics.  When that is done we can at least have fun seeing if anyone at all replies other than scam artists. This is not a new idea.  I see that I joined match.com back in January!  I think it will be impossible to get someone to agree to going on a date for the sake of youtube.  And trust me when I say I have zero interest in dating other than for content for my channel.  If I can’t record, I’m staying home. lol

On the agenda for today… fabric shopping and hopefully with Sandy Pro.  She does not work until this afternoon so if I get out of the house early enough, she expressed interest in going with me.

I also want to do a quilt block tutorial.  I skipped yesterday and was so sad!  Must start an upcycled fashions video. Something easy.

Oh, I also need to change my schedule and print that out.  And I always like to go over it with you just so you can get an idea of what’s to come.  And I have a ZC update on the way too.  Stay tuned!

Have a great Monday!  Darlene xoxo
