Everything is on Hold

As of right now, everything is on hold.

I haven’t had the money to fix my computer or buy a new one. We’re in the process of getting things ready to move out of our current home in the near future and I’ve put all of my craft work on hold. To be honest, I don’t know when I will be able to begin making things again. Things have been rough the last few weeks and we’re doing what we can to stay afloat.

I can’t wait to until things are back to normal.

Anyways, I probably won’t be posting as much until I can begin focusing on the blog again, which I hope is very soon. I’m sure I will post here and there but they will be small posts as they will be from my phone.

Stop in a say hi if ya want…hit me up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or just head over to my contact page.

My plans got smashed by a single bolt of lightning.

Maybe it just wasn’t time yet.

Until then…

NEYIWA! Thank You!

Struggling To Find A Way

As October closes in and things keep falling apart, I’m struggling to find a way to continue with my plan to open my online shop.

I got the power supply needed to fix my computer but another issue has reared its ugly head; a few capacitors on the motherboard seem to have blown, which leaves me with a few options: fix it myself, take it to someone, or just buy a new one.

Either way I don’t have the money for it and, sadly, I don’t think I will have it going by October.

In the meantime, I’m continuing my beading and jewelry making on the side until I can get my computer up and running. However, I’m going to wait until closer to October to decide if I want to change the date. I want to hold off as long as I can in case I get things working again. I’m hoping to at least have things running before the end of the year.

The universe is putting a lot of pressure on my family right now, and though I don’t understand why, I’m going to try as hard as I can to keep my head up. I know that we will overcome it.

But dang, universe…!

As always, thanks for checking out the blog and I hope things will get straightened out and I can stop whining about it. I just needed to vent a little and writing makes me feel better.

Catch up with me on Facebook, Instagram, or the form on the contact page.

NEYIWA! Thank you!

Nature Strikes in the Middle of the Night!

There’s nothing like a huge explosion jolting you awake at 2 in the morning when nature strikes.

In that state, your not truly aware of what’s going on and there’s a million things rushing through your mind in that split second; bomb, car crash, gas line…

But the first thing I did was rush into the living room where Eli was sleeping to make sure he was OK.
