Stay Positive

Stay Positive

Today’s thought and goal for the week, “Stay Positive” and do not give up. Life is a testament. It comes with happiness and sorrow, the good with the bad. In life, it is so easy to let negativity in, to doubt and to give up. I want to remind everyone not to give up, stay positive and continue to fight.

I hope these words will inspire you as it has inspires me. Have a great week.

Tops Garbage Pail Kids Upcycled Change Purse, Coin Pouch, Zippered Wallet, Vinyl Case

Do you remember Garbage Pail Kid Cards? This is telling my age, but in 1985, I was 6 years old and a huge fan. My sister and I were eager to collect additional cards. For 25 cents, you received outrageous sticker cards and a stick of gum. Recently, I came across two 2014 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Card wrappers and had to upcycle it into a Garbage Pail Kids Card Change Purse.  This change purse is perfect for bringing nostalgic memories of the 80’s to your everyday life. Use this change purse for change, money, credit cards or bus cards. Want more details? Visit Chew On This Or That Etsy Store or drop a comment below
My favorite cards from my childhood were Messy Tessie and Hairy Carrie. Messy Tessie featured a girl with boogies dripping down her nose. It’s similar to that embarrassing sneeze that came out more than expected. Hairy Carrie, feature a hairy cave woman dragging a man by the hair and dragging him back to her cave. Oh the control and dominance. She’s taking control and grabbing what she wants.
What was your favorite Garbage Pail Kids Card?

I’ll Be Brief–I need an Intern

iwannagrowoldwi_iwannagrowol1a

Yesterday, my sister and I were talking about interns, and I realized that I definitely need one. The intern will get to do lots of work, lesson my work load and  hopefully alleviate my stress. I will have the hard responsibility of having fun and crafting.

Intern Needed

Job Info – Intern will do all the work I that I need done and they will hear a lot of  “thank you”, “that’s not quite right”, “please do it again, but this way”, “don’t throw that out, it can still be saved”. My intern will be responsible of photographing, editing and uploading my items into the corresponding social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, WordPress Blog and my Etsy Store..

Skills Needed– Intern must know how to use a computer and a tablet. Typing is a necessity, meaning the intern must know how to touch type or use QWERTY, and not two fingers as if texting on a phone. Funny, I never thought this was important .

Unfortunately, this is a work of Fiction
