How does a kid go from BMX bike tricks
I don't really wonder about that. I guess its all part of growing up and just plain growing.
Take me. I know how to do a multitude of what some people call crafts. Actually, I made quite a bit of money at it about l0-15 years ago participating in local craft shows. Jewelry was always in demand. And that whole country craft era brought lots of sales too. I may do that again someday. Maybe that's why I have a hard time destashing.
I am still beading, still participating in the BJP, still have to be nosey and see what everyone is doing. But I have lots of other interests too. I plan to dye/paint a couple of jackets. I am researching dyes now. I used to use Rit but maybe there is something better now. I have accumulated some fabric paints for that same project. And don't forget CQ. I used to do it years ago. I am amazed at how many CQers there are on the internet. I wish I had continued honing my skills all these years and wonder why I ever put it aside.
Things in my life are on a more even keil now. Even though my daughter and grandsons temporarily live here, I don't feel the responsibility to be sure everyone is fed everyday, or to do their laundry or any other thing for that matter. I look after Terry and I which is what two people our age are meant to do. Its a freeing feeling. You might remember this was won of my New Year Intentions. Guess I am following through.
So, for today, I am making dinner for everyone with help when requested. (My kitchen is small). Later, I will be beading...quiet time for me.
