I could use your votes on Blockhead Radio Live

I would love for you to vote for my clutch in the Artisan's Challenge. I think my clutch is unique because it is made from a nice thick vinyl placemat. The placemat provides a waterproof lining for the clutch. The outer layer of the clutch is a pretty, cotton, feather fabric. I have added a snap closure with a decorative vintage button.

If you are so inclined, I would love for you to vote for my item. Voting continues through April 6.

thank you.

To have me make you your own clutch

A beautiful email I received

Just got this today and thought I would share.

How to Dance in the Rain

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate hi s wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman t old me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health.

He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.

He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?'

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.'

I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, 'That is the kind of love I want in my life.'

True love is neither physical, nor romantic.

True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message. This one I thought I could share with you. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

I hope you share this with someone you care about. I just did.
'Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.'

Finally added a new pillow

It may not seem like a big deal but actually finding time to create a new pillow has been a challenge. This time of year finds me collecting receipts, calculating business expenses, inventory costs and the like for the dreaded IRS.

Of course it would be easier if I used an automated accounting system and actually recorded to it daily but that wouldn't give me the adrenalin rush that scrounging around for paperwork gives me. I still would rather record in a paper ledger than online. Not sure why but that is how we did it in accounting class way back when.

Well must run. Off to find more free advertising space.....

I hate desperate spammers

To my spammers, and there are many of you on the various sites on which I participate:

I know we are all here to further our careers but I find it troubling when I am left tons of comments for me to view your sites and sign up for your services before you have even taken a peek at my shops. I am not looking for any get rich quick schemes. If that is your angle, than I am not your gal. If you have useful pointers on how I can improve what I am doing, I may listen. Isn't the first rule of marketing Know Your Audience? Spamming any newcomer or oldie here isn't going to earn you any long term customers, but then again that isn't what you want, is it? You want a quick buck. I guess your new role model will me Bernie Madoff.
