Be Brave and Have Courage!

I love this quote! I used to watch this movie with my sister-in-law Pam a lot and it was our last movie we watched together!  So this post is dedicated to Pam! Sorry, everyone, there is not much more I can say about this because if you knew her you would understand she was beyond amazing.

Dreams or Nightmares... Parents Edition

If that quote wasn't the truth.  You see I am what you would call a very dark dreamer.  I remember my dreams for a while after I wake and I write them down till I start to forget. Which seriously some of the best stories come from what you dreamt in the past.  But lately, my dreams have been even darker than usual. As most know I am a writer and I normally lean towards ghost and monsters in my writing. Even my own personal drawings in the book's lean toward the darker mythical side.  But seriously I think my dreams have been in overdrive lately. I decided to read up on what dreams are supposed to mean and according to quite a few articles, it's my fears for the future playing out in my dreams... Only if my dreams knew the half of it. That's where I have a problem.  Why? Because the other night I was watching a video game playthrough with my daughter and later that night I dreamt I was fighting off the characters of said game with dual handed swords while search

Looking For A JOB

So let me make this clear to start I lost my job on January 30th of this year. Why did I lose my job you may ask? Well because I was full time and the company restructured to get rid of us hard working full timers.  Which sucks too because I followed policy and rules and was a cheerleader for the company.  I was such a cheerleader I cheered myself right out the door. I was Lucky I got a small severance and some unemployment. But here it is July 16th and I still have not found a job. Yes, I am being critical of finding a good job because guess what I worked for a huge corporation before and my soul got sucked from me. No, I am not being funny I am being serious.  The company I worked for previously for going on just over eleven years did not believe in a work-life balance.  Well, let me rephrase that unless you were someone who kissed the managements booty you were not given or allowed to have a work-life balance. Now I can freelance which I am setting everything up for and other stuff

A Brief Interlude!

I know I know I said I wouldn't be gone again and really I am not... No, seriously I am finishing stocking  THE CRAZY STORE !  I am on hour I think 9 of working through the stock and box 17.  I have to get the store finished by the end of this weekend so I can have a Christmas in July sale followed by the dreaded back to school sale and pop up!

My youngest has been hanging out with her friends as well and my boy has been playing on Fortnite none stop since yesterdays season switch up happened.

Christmas In July!

I was asked the question, "Do you know why people and companies celebrate Christmas in July?" To be honest Christmas in July has always intrigued me and I thought it was for a few reasons and after doing a little research I come to find out I was not too far off on some of what I thought I knew. However, I was also wrong about some of what I knew as well. So let me fill you in on a few of the reasons that popped repeatedly when I was researching. The first reason actually has to do with the real Christmas. See for us crafters who like making a bunch of homemade Christmas gifts July is our six-month warning if you have a bunch to make. This time of year if you go into certain crafting stores such as Joannes, Micheals and Hobby Lobby you can find sections that have some select Christmas stuff out already. Especially in the fabric and yarn sections you can see that there are holiday prints and colors starting to make an appearance. Also yes besides my gift store I have I
