Good morning! I'm up and my attitude is much better today! I have chosen to see the good, look at the new possibilities and am trying not to focus on what we're losing or 'leaving behind'. In 72 hours we'll be sitting on the train on our way to Toronto.... Continue reading

*** I look tired. No I don't... I look exhausted. Which I am. Besides exhausted I'm terrified, I'm sad, I'm nervous, I'm already missing my people and we're not even gone yet. My anxiety is through the roof right now and I'm absolutely "over-stressing" about all the "what ifs" in... Continue reading

*** In the last 72 hours i've posted all of our furniture on Kijiji in the *FREE* album, and thankfully now it's ALL gone! Well, except one little night table this morning which I dragged to the curb, but I'm assuming it'll be gone tonight! I was quoted $250.00 to... Continue reading

*** I am speeding through the "Stressed out & Sleep Deprived" lanes at about 220kmph. Probably not a good thing at this point. Dallas moved out yesterday which broke my heart a little bit again, I know, "I shouldn't be upset", but I still am. He's my baby. Someone shared... Continue reading

Let it be known that I am only letting myself buy purple fabrics. My stash has completely used up pretty much every single purple fabric, and with my business, I can't have that! Tonight I received an email from FabricSpark and saw some new pretties that were PURPLE!! So I... Continue reading

*** Refunded in full! I'll never do business here again. Even if I weren't moving half-way across the country I still wouldn't deal with them again though. We went in to find a pair of frames we did not ok and did not order. They were downright ugly and right... Continue reading

**** I am having the absolute WORST luck with an eyewear company whom shall remain unnamed until this afternoon. This is their last chance to make things right and if they don't make things right for me I'm going to lose my cool with them. We purchased a pair of... Continue reading

Yes, it will be plenty, but since we need 2 smaller sets or 1 larger set, and tax (13-15%) I'm trying to give myself a half decent budget. No Target here anymore, plus it sucked. LOL!! We didn't get it nearly as good as it is in the USA.
It's not that I'm "too good" for $ store dishes, but I try not to purchase much from the dollar store as many items have found toxic levels and lead and other chemicals in them. So it makes me nervous to purchase something that we'll be eating off of day in and day out that we're not 100% sure is safe to use...

When we move we're not bringing our dishes with us... they need replaced and I don't love them. They're super heavy and half of what we have is chipped, it's time to part ways. So I'm on the hunt for new diningware! I love this style... it's so pretty and... Continue reading

*** Like today... Moving 2200 km away from my family and friends is really hard. Especially today. When my sister comes over to bring me boxes and sits on the couch and sighs, it breaks my heart. When Maria asks me if "anyone will come visit us at Christmas this... Continue reading

*** There is so much going on here that's "in progress" in relating to our upcoming move, but not a lot of sewing projects "in progress" for my "Work in Progress" Wednesday post! I did complete this ruffled wristlet today which is a custom order. I'm finding that my sewing... Continue reading

I haven't played along with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for a while, so I thought I'd join in today! Here we go! Weather: It's grey, gloomy, especially humid, rainy, and calling for thunderstorms this afternoon with more rain tonight. Not so lovely, but that's ok... Continue reading

If you saw our furniture you'd understand... LOL! I've honestly and truly needed new furniture for a few years now, but we made do as we weren't sure what we were doing. But it's been very used & abused, at this point it's not even worth giving away.
19. A little out of this offer, but that's amazing!!
