Mom is on total bed rest until baby is born.  She needs to carry that baby at least another five weeks for it to have a fighting chance.  Fingers are crossed.

I'm in pretzel mode for her!  (everything is crossed)

I sent more resumes today and made another video, this one for the glitter tats exclusively.  I need to do one for henna too, but I need to gather my photos for that.  Oh, and I did one exclusively for body painting too.  It's so fun!
Link for you video?  It is certainly cheap and easy enough.  I have been trying to make the set format meet my needs, but this is fine for now.

I like it, your work is fantastic.  Some things I learned about this program.  You can create more visual interest if your pictures are varied in size and shape.  It handles pretty large images, like 1200 x 1200.  Play around with that, it's fun.  Also, I like editing in Picnik.  Because they are closing the site in April, all the advanced features are free until then.

Praying for the best Sandi!

Decorating actually was pretty fun.  They did something different this year and draped miles of multicolored fabric to create the big tent look .vs. the streamers they've done in the past.  My booth lost its uniform look when they ran out of the balloons I was using...and I let Jax have quite a bit of creative input this morning  ;D

Andy has some sort of a stomach bug, or at least he did last night.  :(

A lot has gone on since I've been here last.

Good luck with everything Larissa. You totally amaze me.
Wellness vibes, prayers for Mom and baby. Like some of you I had my son early (6weeks) and he is about to be a Dad himself next month. Positive thoughts!!!♥

Hope your wound has healed Matt. Sounds like it was pretty bad. glad to know you didn't blow away!

Gina, I remember temps like that growing up where I did. That wind blowing in off Lake Superior, lots of lake effect snow too. BRRR! can't say I miss that all that much. I do miss winter activities though. I loved snowshoeing, ice skating or just going for a walk in the crunchy snow.

As for me, I took time off from my store at the beginning of the month. Got stuff done at home, played with my glue gun and made stuff for the store. My husband is actively looking for a job since he had to close his business. We are trying not to move but if we have to we'd like to go back to Chicago. We'll see what happens.

Good luck with the job hunting for your hubby, Teresa.  I know how hard it is...  Paul has been hardly working for almost 2 years.

Today, I did the marketing, washed the floors, did the laundry, and made blueberry jam.  Am going to get ready to have company for a birthday dinner now!

Theresa- good luck job hunting!  I know that it isn't easy :(

Andy and I worked our butts off at the carnival and had fun!  My IL's drove up to hang out with the kids at the carnival and everyone had a good time!    I'm now thinking about just curling up with a book, my feet hurt!

Hi all,
I went to a Tom Rush concert last night, it was wonderful.  Many of you are probably too you to have any idea who he is.  I also made a new video for YouTube.  Today, I did a flea market trying to sell some of the antiques left over from my parents' shop.  It was kind of slow.

Good morning.  Today I have to go to the store and then want to finish a special order to get it out of my hair and we will have to see what happens after that.  So many little things seem to take up so much of my days lately

Sorry you are sick. Take a break and find a warm blanket for a bit and feel better soon!
