I’m full of energy and ready to start this day!  I have so much to do and so little time.  Let’s get started!

First, let’s talk about the videos I uploaded yesterday.  I finally did my Sewing Machine video.  That was my most requested video ever!  I also included my Fabric Stash in that video because many have been asking to see that too.

Talking about things from the past… I don’t do well with that.  It makes me think of what life was for me back then and I just do like to revisit it.  Obviously, the sewing machine is an emotional topic for me because it was my grandmother’s.  But even the fabric is hard for me to deal with because it brings me back to that time in my life when I bought all that fabric and I have much to hate about that time of my life too.  For one, I was over medicated during that time and it angers me to no end that I ever let the doctors do that to me.  It was a band-aid, no different than the booze.  I had manic episodes due to the medication, hence buying all that fabric then quitting my business immediately after. Stuff like that.

You will be able to tell by my face that it was hard for me when you watch  my Tag Along with Me – Dollar Tree Haul video which I recorded shortly after.  I had to get out of the house.  I was a mental mess from just having recorded the sewing machine and the fabric.  It’s quite obvious by my face that I had been crying, and I cried in the car too.  Just a mess.

This is not a pity party. I’m not looking for words of kindness and I certainly don’t want messages saying to cheer up or that I’m being too hard on myself. So sick of that! LOL  I have the right to be angry, to feel sad, to cry, to suffer with regrets… all that.  Don’t take that away from me.

Today I hope to list some fabric on ebay.  I miss my trips to Marden’s!  Maybe flannels?  Or I might repeat the batiks?  I’m thinking flannels.  UGH!  I don’t know. lol

Oh, my Paper Bead auctions are live!  Please go check them out!

Other than listing fabric on ebay, I have a Youtube Earnings Update video to record!  I will hopefully get that done today. If not, then tomorrow.  I know there are some waiting not-so-patiently for that video. lol  And maybe I can start wrapping up the Quilt Block Party.  I’ve decided I’d like to embellish some of the block.  I might actually turn this into another whole series using the blocks that I made.  I do believe that’s what I’ll do! Do love that idea!

And I’m anxious to do another Can I “blank” This Shit video.  I don’t know if it will be painting or sewing, but I have both projects planned, so they will both get done at some point.  I also have a Random Facts on my list and an Upcycled Fashions video.  It never ends! lol

Have a great Friday! Darlene xoxo
