Good Monday Morning and threading needles

Good Morning

I am running in circles catching up *smile*


Tell me I am not the only one that has bent needles? 
that must be a sign of using them so much !

But you see this needle see that thread! I use small eyed 
needles to close items up and to do handstitching, so threading 
them became a challenging task for me, I normally have 10 threaded at
a time. When I run out, I thread 10 more

we finally got to go get me some new specs
on Saturday, it had been 5 years since my last update on glasses
Yep I got regular bifocals, I did not want to risk getting used to
no lines and it hampering with my production


No my face is not behind them in this photo
a bit too early and to be honest with you
This is my full time job
So on any given day of the week, you will find me in my
jammies, no makeup and most generally not a hair style
I would want to share with folks online *GRIN*

But I am so thrilled that I can see now, I did not realize how
scratched my other glasses were, not to mention I could not
see a thing out of them!! or at least I strained to see


for those signed up for my Blog sale newsletter
Be watching today, I am running so far behind with what
I intended to have done, but I have counters and tables
full of items started, what I will do is send those signed up
a Special coupon code to use for one week in my etsy shop
details will be in the Newsletter


This will give me the chance to do the normal 10 days 
to ship on orders, so I can turn my attention to finishing
all these new little Elves I have promised to get done
that way I can get a schedule down and get myself back to
the normal mode of production and work on orders as well.
NOW that I can see Better 


For a couple of Months my left eye has been swollen up
and like a faucet just dripping all day long.
I had not mentioned this before, but out of concern 
and the fact that my allergies normally bother both 
if that is the problem. We went to get these old eyes checked!

Yes I have the beginnings of cataracts in both eyes but
I am good to go for a few more years on those *MAYBE*
or should I say hopefully !!
Instead my eye issue is caused by my High Blood pressure
*I wanted to give that eye doctor a Fat eye myself*
well yes my blood pressure was up that day! 
we drove an over an hour to get my eyes checked and
the eye doctor was out on an emergency UGH
if they would of been in, I would of gotten my exam and 
got glasses within an hour there for a fraction of the cost!!

So we drove back and I had to pay three times as much to
get my eyes checked with this local doctor, I freaked out!!
sure my BP was up I was stressed about what the problem 
could be? And I knew if I got glasses there it would 
take over two weeks for them to mail them to me??
{so we opted to take my script to another place}
where my glasses could be done the same day !!

By the way when I got home my BP was normal!
Let's just say I won't be going back to this over rated
place again, he was lacking the skills of kindness
or thoughtfulness!! I hate going to an office and 
the minute you walk in you can tell, they are overrated!
And really don't give a darn about their profession
they are there to channel folks in and out and over charge!

OK stepping off of this podium :) before I have to drag 
the old blood pressure cuff out LOL!


Look what came in my mail box this weekend
Isn't she precious, I played along on Facebook with 
Kat Kosch of Kats Country Prims
on her birthday as she shared posts all day 
and I guessed the right answer at the end of that day
and Won this Adorable Annie as a prize
I love my Annie, thank you Kat!!


Don't forget to sign up for my current blog giveaway

Ok back to my work table, I have boxes to pack and
shipping to do
Wishing you a Wonderful day

What a household of hormonal females this week

WHAT a title, did I get your attention


This is the only hen I have laying right now
OR WAS!!! 
She is broody *sigh* 
I just went and pushed her out of the nest to eat, I am
sure when I go back out she will be up there again
This has been going on all week long 
My two young ones should start laying by the end
of this month ........ the other one, hubby calls her 
Chicken soup *GRIN* cause she may be a meal 
*** just kidding, I love my chickens***


and Shelby and Rango are driving me a bit nutty
this week also, I guess with the cooler weather
every noise they hear bothers them, they come in
from outside all wound up and running everywhere


Even Sprout is Moody GEE!!

Me I am fine, well maybe not LOL, cause the Animals 
are driving me CRAZY



I have a brand new Giveaway

Working, and yes for those waiting I am a bit late
on my blog sale, Too late :)

Miss Lilly styling 


and her new experience with Jeans and socks on
apparently she does not like Winter clothing anymore

Guess I have to get up from here and put clothes on UGH
Have to run boxes to the post office
Have a GREAT day
