When the news broke about Arnold and Maria’s split I read where Maria Shriver said that she was going through a transition and had no idea what she was going to do next. I really did feel for her but couldn’t help thinking – “but you have money, lots of money”. Wrong of me, I know.
On another note I was saddened to hear that Jenny from the block had split with Marc Anthony – who is starting to look hotter and hotter now that he’s been paired with Jada on “Hawthorne”. But there’s still hope for everybody, it ain’t over til it’s over right?
Bet you didn’t even know I cared about such things. Well I don’t really, but how else to segue into my own tale of trial, tribulation and yes…transition.
Lets see in the past 2.5 months I’ve:
- Been unemployed
- Started a new job – 100 miles away from home
- Lived in a hotel
- Suffered through my Mom having a second stroke , followed by pneumonia
- Moved into a new place
- Had a very large pine tree fall on said new place and lost use of half of the new place (including the kitchen)
So of course with all of that to occupy me ( you try packing up a 3 story 7 bedroom home while working in another city an dspending weekend sleeping in a hospital chair) I have been totally unable to accomplish what I promised myself I’d get done this summer:
1. Blog more
2. Launch my line of upcycled tees
3. Crochet and market a version of every single pattern in the Double stitch twins book
Well finally some breathing room. I still don’t have a kitchen but I do love my new house and enjoy the parts that I can. What with moving a hundred miles away I did not have access to my favorite model Sara, so I had to delay launching my t-shirt line. However, we were finally able to connect yesterday and I was able to post several new items today – including the Gypsy Duster from “Designs for the Crochet Fashionista”.
My tee shirts were inspired by the bag of concert tees that I had saved since the 80s and some newer ones from my husband’s days as a musician and tour manager. I thought that upcycled tees might be a logical next step for me and look forward to adding sports tees, vacation tees, and tees with irreverent sayings.
I’ve also added new baby items to my Etsy site. So much crochet, so little time. This will be a busy month!
