Wow it's been an exciting week to say the least in my world. This week had a meeting with the printers . We are designing my logo, getting flyer's designed, business cards, and art cards done. Those I think excite me the most. Fran said should get some pictures of the studio and quilts that they could use and one might consider hiring a photographer. Well guess what that very night at a birthday party I met one. Can you say thinking the stars are all lining up for me. So the next day Brad emailed me , check out his web site  and yes going to have him come in and take some shots. It's funny how things work out. That was my Tuesday, on Monday I decided that I would book more classes and take a couple more days off work. Thought my families would complain when I gave them my new holiday schedule and everyone was fine with the additional three days off. Mind you I gave 3 months notice for one day and seven months notice for the days taking in December. Why did it take me 15 yrs to discover one could take time off work ? I swear for the last 15 years my family has only ever taken ten days for holidays a year.  Okay you have to know  both Rodney and I are self employed so it's a juggling act to take time off when  two companies are involved. Anyways booked more classes and am doing the happy dance cause learning has always excited me. So in June taking an extra day of classes with Deloa Jones. You can see her crazy at I love what she can do with feathers.

charity quilt for guild

On Wednesday finished binding on a charity quilt for the guild. Wanted it completed so I could show off my quilting skills . Okay just remember this is only my sixth quilt on the new machine.And with each quilt getting better and better. At my guild meeting last night the ladies loved what was done and I also brought Mr Bones to show off . Today will finish another charity quilt if time allows. So there you have it to date been crazy busy just the way I like it.

Now to net work more and get my name out there so that one can start building clients. Now to start dealing with building my web site so that every thing will be ready for our Grand opening. Mark your Calendar for July 22 - 24 !  Figure that's the best date for Loopy D's to hit the ground running. Most of my classes will be under my belt. Our family is back from holidays well rested, stampede will have been over so one will need a BBQ  to attend. Okay still working on what we will be doing but have started collecting some killer door prizes. ( Can you say money going out faster than coming in ) Idea's would be great so feedback is always welcome.
So there you have it all wrapped up in a bow a view into my small world now into the mix one has to add eight daycare kids, one Jack Russel, one university student , husband that is home one week gone the next for work. Notice the list starting with the ones that make the most work down to the one person in my life that makes it worth working from home. All my adventures would not be possible if I did not have Rodney by my side. Crazy man sees my vision and is on board for the crazy even after 29 years. I'm the dreamer, he's the one that keeps me grounded.
Now your goal for this week is to make some suggestions , tell me what you would like to be offered as services . In general would love to hear your feedback.  Chat Later got to head to the Longarm and do some real work. Enjoy your day.

    I remember that time so well. It is so exciting and strangely scarey at the same time. Enjoy the rush and I'll see you at your open house.



  2. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
    you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
