I have been busy again

First of all, I would like to say that a sweet chick gave me a call on Saturday, Connie at Living Beautifully. Although I have never met Connie, she sounds just like her posts, sweet, kind, gentle, and caring about blogging friends. Her call brightened my day. Thank you Sweet Connie.

Now I have been busy trying to keep my mind off the latest saga of my sister trying to hurt me, but she didn't do it. I found this mirror at Goodwill for $3.99 and looked at it and thought about how it would look white and use it temporarily for my bedroom dresser until I can afford or find an old round mirror. It took 2 coats of primer and paint and the pictures don't do it justice. I really like it, but there are 4 little areas that had the mirrors missing, so they've been measured and Al will get them for me. I did like the brown and gold, but I didn't need a mirror for my living room. It's really pretty in person and I always have fun painting. It's the one thing that I can do standing up straight.

I found some more things for my blog store, but won't set it up until I have enough things to keep it going like Amy does. My prices will be reasonable and I will be selling things that I make or redo if they are not big. I do make squash scrapbooks and I will be selling those for $15 and my journals for $10. If I get around to beading cards again, they will sell for $6.00, a lot of work for little pay. I have a box full of linens with embroidery designs on them, one is blue that will go well with some blue ware I found. I do hope to sell to help pay for some of my co-pays for the surgeries I will be having.
One of the surgeries will be breast reduction and that is being set up right now. I have to have my mammorgram and the doctor ordered an MRI on my neck for next week. My daughter is happy that they are finally going to do it, because she knows how much I have suffered with them.
Not sure if I told you all, but last year my bad cholesterol was over 2000 and with diet and medicine, it is now at 143. I was shocked, but very happy.
I will try and come back on Thursday night, because Good Friday, we don't do anything, but remember why Christ died for our sins. On Easter Sunday, Al will come and have dinner with me. My son and family will be going to his mil's for Easter, so it's just us, but it gives us time to discuss things about our relationship, which we are hoping to re-build someday.
Well I have got to make 96 kiss roses so I need to get started. I will try and visit blogs tomorrow, between making roses and wrapper candy for bouquets. Wish me luck that my thumb doesn't trigger lock on my again. Love, Hugs, Prayers, and many Blessings for a wonderful Easter.

Connie and Ele, thanks for the compliments. I love re-doing things, especially if they are old or odd. At one time I wanted to go full retro, but there are so many that are doing it that I wanted to be different. Hope you all have a Blessed Easter. Love Ya, Pat
