It’s been a long time again — and it’s just flown by. Work has been very hectic. We’re in the middle of upgrading to a new site and everything has been revamped– the look and feel and the software and backend hardware. The time frame is just painful so I’ve worked a few weekends (fairly short hours, not too bad) and evenings. Although, not as much now as it was just a month or so ago. It’s getting to crunch time though and we’re all feeling the pressure.
In other news, Brian and I are getting the house ready to sell. We recently got the basement waterproofed and the one room has nice white plastic walls now and is pretty much empty. Looks so much better! Also got the driveway re-sealed.
I’ve also been working on some new crafts. In September, I learned how to use my sewing machine and made pillow cases for the pillows on the couch, which look really nice. I have a pattern to make a cool bird mobile, which I’m keeping in my back pocked for that someday. Also, I started making some more jewelry. Recall I made the necklaces and earrings the girls wore for the wedding. I took a class with my co-worker Joni and now am setting up shop! I have three on there, with another ready to go. I’ve got some materials to make a light box which will allow me to take better pictures of my jewelry, so I’m waiting to put the fourth up there for when I have that done. So I haven’t sold anything yet, but that’s okay… I’m enjoying myself tremendously and I kind of want to have a good number up there and have a “grand opening” sale. Here’s my shop: http://www.artfire.com/users/hilaryrose
Soon Brian and I will combine computer rooms and computers, and get rid of my desktop that I’ve had for 5-6 or so years. It’s getting cranky. Then we’ll turn the other spare room into a second bedroom for house selling. We want to put the house up by February. I’m sooo ready to move!
