Here it goes!

I have decided to take a big leap of faith.  I have always wanted to sell the scrapbooks, cards, journals, picture frames, gift baskets, etc that I enhance (I won't say make, since I don't actually start out with nothing).  I have always dreamed of having my own little shop.  Since I don't have the money to start it and no bank will probably give me a loan (thanks college loans!), I am going to do craft fairs.  I am extremely nervous about it.  However, Amanda has given me some good tips.  I won't actually do anything until Labor Day weekend, but I am trying to prepare now, since I will have NO time once school starts.  I found a website that will let me design (using one of their designs) and print business cards for FREE!! All I am paying for is the shipping.  I am pretty stoked about that!  My mom has a bunch of stuff she bought and doesn't use and told me I can have what I want, that is a huge help, supplying your stuff is the most expensive.  Anyway, all good luck wishes are appreciated and keep your fingers crossed I get stuff made and it sells.  I am attaching a picture of the business card, let me know what you think...I didn't delete any of my info, those of you that read this blog, already know my info.

Summer, Surgery, Vacation

Ok, so it has been awhile, sorry Stephanie...I'm just not as good as you. So, school ended, we hade cheer camp at Miss State and then I had foot surgery, good timing right. I have needed to have this surgery for awhile now, but I just have not had enough time to recover from it, so I decided this summer would work. The surgery was fine, but I have the adorable little boots that I have to wear with the surgical socks they attach to my feet brand new each week, precious I tell you, precious. The "boots" are black and the "socks" are white!! I seriously look like I am riding the short bus. Anyway I am 2 weeks down and I have about 4 to go, I am not sure if I have to wear these boots for the next four or what. I get the stitches out on this Friday, and I hope that means I won't have to wear the socks after that, I HATE to sleep with things on my feet, and I HATE wearing socks in the summer. I will say that normally people only do one foot at the time, but the doctor said I was a good candidate to do them both at the same time, honestly, I don't know if I would have done the other if I had to wait. However, I am not suppose to be on my feet very much at all, and that has been very difficult, it has cut into my shopping time...lol.

Vacation countdown is 4 weeks!!! I am very excited about it! We are going to Florida where Tim's parents rented a gorgeous house on a private beach for a week. I dread the drive, simply becuase I get so ancey, but it will be well worth it and Tim and I keep each other entertained. I am going to try and find the picture of the house and I will post it.

Birthday countdown is 2 weeks!! Yay, I think. Actually, I am not looking forward to this birthday, I will be headed on the downward slope to 30!!! I am just trying not to think about it.
