Day 34

Well everything is back to normal in my household! Crazyness everywhere, I bet it's less crazy in the Dugger House!

I find that after a vacation, or after my daughter come's home from vacationing that it's so hard to get back into the swing of things! So the next few days there will be some yelling matches, some grounding, some crying and I'm sure laughing. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things!

This morning started out cloudy and didn't look like it was going to be too nice out, but a few hrs later and here we are- it's sunny out! The campground across the street and every neighbor around are all outside working on their yards! Smell that....??..... Fire! My favorite summertime smell. I guess that means we should be working on our yard to, right?! 

I want to plant a bit of a garden, with veggies in it- not sure how well this will work, but we will see! I will be sure to keep people informed of my 'mis' adventure! (cause I know nothing about gardening) lol  I want to do flowers too! I guess I should find out when everyone plants around here, make sure I dont do it too early or too late! Wish me luck! If you have any tips for me, I welcome them!

Day 31

I am happy to say I've made a few sales, still waiting to hear back from a few people to see which one's they want- A friend of mine gave me the idea of putting some pairs of earrings up on Etsy, so I think I just may do that!

Slowly people are coming to the FB page for the blog, that makes me happy to see! This way I can keep my jewelry business seperate from this! <3


I forgot what it's like to be alone in my own home! It is so's almost eerie!  I find that I look forward to having time to myself, but then when I am finally alone for a few days I dont know what to do with myself! haha I could do so much, and the idea's run through my head- but it always ends up that I do nothing....cause I can!  The other weird part is when no one is here, I dont really care to watch any why is that?!??!

Saturday when Kira was getting some of her stuff ready to go, she asked if she could use my ipod- I said she could....While waiting for her grandparents to come, she was sitting a listening to the music, after a few minutes she comes into the kitchen and tell's me she cant find a song she is looking for. I then told her I dont have it....

Kira replies "well can you dl it on the computer, and then put it on here before I go?" I then had to tell her that I dont dl music on the computer at home- I dont have what I need to do it on this computer (and usually I just sync my ipod with my friends/family- lol) ...So she's give's me this look- and said to me "Well what's the point of having an ipod then!?" ROFL  Yep, she is growing up! The song she was looking for- one of her favorites right now- (the video ...well it's weird- but yea)


                    DAY 31

Day 30

Well here we are! Day 30- the beginning of the next batch of earrings <3 This first month feels like it went by really fast! Thankyou everyone for the support and the comments, they keep me going most days!

I am still waiting for more earrings to be purchased before I do the giveaways! I know I have one pair sold, and am waiting to hear back from the few that commented under the post. As soon as half are sold, I will commence the giveaway of earings!  Remember the only thing you have to do to be able to win the earrings is follow this blog, pretty simple huh!
Today I created another page on Facebook- Earrings a Day on FB CLICK HERE! This is a way to stay connected, I also want to have related pages, groups and blogs on it- so other people who are raising money for a certain cause also!  I think it's a great way to get people to see other's page and have a part if they wish! If I had money I'd be donating too them all, but unfortuanately I cannot- so for now this is the least I can do!

Day 29

Wow! One whole month-One whole batch done!! First.......

Today's Earrings <3
Silver earrings (LF/NF); Square beads.


Here is a photo of the first batch of earrigns <3

This is how I am doing the first batch (hopefully everything will work out smoothly)!

At some point tonight, I  will put a status update on my Facebook Page  SUMTHING PURDY FB PAGE  The first 15 people to comment on the photo will be the people who are purchasing the earrings they want, for a price of $10.00 a pair. 

After the first half are sold, I then will be giving away the rest of the earrings, with the option of a donation.

The goal for me is after a few months to have more followers and people involved with my blog! I want to be able to choose winners from my blog followers only! So the first few earrings that are being given away in the first two batches will be given to my blog followers! So far the odds are looking good for my current followers! lol So make sure to follow the blog and share with others!!!

Do not forget to vote for your choice of a charity ( I can't remember but I think you can vote daily) if that's not the case, then make sure you at least get your one vote in!

I am very excited! Thankyou everyone :o)

Day 28

One more day, One more Day!!! Wahoo! Now I got to go through my earrings because I didn't hang them in order....that should take a good half an hr! 

I will share a few photo's with you from this afternoon, my daughter decided to make a hat for the dog (unfortunately I didnt' get photo's of the first hat she made).

Putting her hat on her....

Bella is our Pom-Chi <3 and she's almost 1yr old...and act's like she's 5months old! I say all the time that having a dog is a LOT harder than having a child! I mean of course because raising a human is a little more important, but still it's good prep for becoming a parent! It was easier for me with my daughter than this dog! Some days I'm ready to pull my hair out!

Day 26

I've noticed that it's relatively quiet on FB yesterday and today- I wonder why....Any insights into this question??  It's so easy to get sidetracked with one little thing! I've been working on networking and my FB page, but have neglected  my Etsy shop! This week I am going to add some items to my shop, and visit my groups more this week!
I love that saying and Dr.Seuss! <3  Tomorrow I will do an entry on my regular blog and show some of the things I've been working on.

Day 23

Sorry that I've been MIA everyone, I just am not feeling better yet! My daughter doesn't have a fever but has a really bad cough and it's been a week for her! I'm not near a week but, am still fighting with a fever....except for right now because I took tylonol! Just long enough to be able to do a few things and get this typed up!

I've actually never realized how lucky I have been. Kira is 9 and this is the first time I've been alone with her and it including myself being extremly sick! Yesterday was my breaking point- I lost it about four seperate times and just bawled my eyes out! I've not cried yet today though! LoL (came close a few times though).

I must admit though that when I brought the dog outside today I was pretty happy to see most the snow has melted away!! I think spring is here, well at least in BC that is! lol
