I Love My New Blog Design

After a few months of debating to have my blog made over I finally decided to give it a go. I'm so happy I did. I love my new blog design. It's simple but elegant and cute all at once. Madeline did such an awesome job that I might have to order some more custom items later. If you want to give your blog a make over check out Madeline's blog at or click on the pic. You'll be glad you did. You can also see some of her past work on her blog as well.

A Spider Told Me To Snap Out Of It

How was everyone's weekend? Did your team win in the Super Bowl? Mine didn't! BOOO!

For those who follow my blog you know that I haven't been in a great mood. I still don't know why. On Saturday my mom needed some help with Facebook so my daughter was kind enough to help her. So my daughter and my mom are in the other room and all of a sudden my daughter comes running to my bedroom yelling at the top of her lungs. "Mom you need to see this awesome spider!" What?! My daughter hates everything buggy so I thought this odd. So off I go to investigate. She was right. It was the most awesome spider ever. It was just a regular ole' daddy long legs but it was huge! The spider web was the biggest web I've seen in a very long time. Goes to show how long it's been since anyone has been in that room.

I couldn't stop staring at this spider. All of a sudden I had this odd feeling this spider was there for a reason. It honestly felt like Spidey was trying to tell me something. Something like "Get off your ass and start doing something!" Or "Life is passing you by, snap out of it!" Or even " If a spider like me can make a home in this little corner and be happy why aren't you happy about this huge space that you get to live in? Seriously?! How selfish are you?" Hmm, Spidey has a point.

So yes, I feel much better now thanks to Spidey. I wonder, did God put that spider there or am I over thinking this? I'll stick to God put Spidey there to give me a slight push. Thanks you God! And of course thank you Spidey for being God's messenger.

What happen to Spidey you ask? I let Spider be and is probably making another web somewhere. I haven't seen Spidey since that day, that moment actually. Which makes me wonder even more. Hmmm

Thank you everyone who sent me words of encouragement. I am blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and God bless.

So Unmotivated!

For the last few weeks I've been in such an unmotivated mood. I wake up in the morning and feel like there's nothing I can do to make my day good. I haven't made anything in weeks. My Etsy shops are suffering because of it. I turned 40 last week and I wonder if that's my reason for my depressing state.

My husband however did take me to Las Vegas this past weekend for our anniversary and we had a blast. We saw The Blue Man Group and that was the best show I've seen in years. What an awesome show. We gambled and lost of course. But we were ok with that. Isn't that what Vegas is all about? Those 4 days in Vegas was the most fun I've had in months. I even laughed a lot. The penthouse suite was sooo awesome. Thanks honey!

But then we got home and BAM depression all over again. So I determined it's not that I'm 40. I think I'm actually ok with that. So what is it? Is it because we're still living with my parents so they wont be alone and think that we(me, my husband and daughter) should be in our own place? Is it because we have no privacy? Is it because my parents ask so many damn questions that is none of their business? Is it because my daughter is starting high school next year or because my dog wakes me up 3 times a night to do her business? Or is it life in general?

Whatever it is I hope I get over this soon. I really hate this feeling.
