So just moments before my nightly ritual of getting some much needed relax time. Off to soak in the warm water, but not without my clipboard of work information of coarse. To make up yet again another schedule that I already know will fail and I wont stick to. Why i feel the need to constantly create these list and schedules I do not know, i think in a way i feel like im accomplishing something by doing it. Well it only counts if i actually follow it ! One of these days I just might let that sink in !
Kids are wound out of their heads again , They are missing out on the magic of Christmas so far and I really want to get that kicked in for them this weekend. With such short time left to enjoy the magic as it is. Thats like the largest memories of my child hood is how magical our mother always made Christmas. No matter where we were, or how poor we might have been , we didnt realize it, all we knew was that Christmas was the most magical time of year , and we started counting down for it in like October ! Now it seems like its 2 weeks away from Christmas before it even dawns on me that its really truly coming up and fast. I put our tree up the first week of november trying to capture some magic , and its made it as far as having lights on it. where have the past 6 weeks gone !!!!
Ok , I hear the footsteps coming thats the signal for me to go get myself in the bath and regroup ! This blog will service some inspiration for myself if nothing else, if you actually read and dont mind ,drop a note, every little letter helps :)

Anyway , i thought it would also be neat to have a place to show through photo's more about me for those who might be interested. My photo's will very insanely as it is all in what the mood is.
For a while I had taken the interest in photography and wanted to do it as a profession , but , I also realize that there are people cut out for it and those who are not. I have wound up with taking decent photo's for our family albums but this satisfies me , my wood working keeps me busy enough for five of me , I long to have the chance to just shoot pictures for fun , something other then product photo's but when the chance arises I'll be sure to share them :) Here is my flickr :) Hope to have you add me !

First Myth - You have no boss , you are your own boss , therefore what you says goes.
Fact - You do have a boss, you have multiple bosses. Every customer/client you have is your boss. You are there to provide services or products to these people in a timely fashion and high quality. You have emails to answer, phones to answer , and you have an obligation to them.
2nd Myth, You set your own hours, work when you want to .
Fact. This is partially true. However, your hours are far more extensive then just 9 - 5 monday through friday most of the time. Myself personally , I work 7 days a week sometimes 19 hours a day. I have deadlines to meet and I can not take a day off to just go randomly shop, kick back relax, hang out with friends or any of those other 10 million things family and friends thinks I should justify a day off for.
3rd Myth , you have to be knocking out some serious cash because everything you make goes in your pocket.
fact. dont i wish ! I have material cost, extra electric , water etc that I use to make these things. I have tools to buy , replace, fix . I lose my tush on shipping at times especially when forced to overnight a package because I took a day off to help someone or per someones request when I knew I had a deadline to make
Speaking of deadlines , I have ones to make so this is all for now :)

A few days went by and Lainey was the center of attention by all in the house. She rarely had time to sleep as she was always in the arms of one of the boys , They of course were really good about taking turns in the beginning but as time progressed and each one started to fall in love with her even more , well , then came the terrible idea of each one of them having their own kitten. Voila ,Welcome Carly and Freddy , named of course by Jayden and Justin two of the biggest icarly fans !

And here's the three I'm looking to spend some good down time with
There are many more of these in different sizes and colors . i can just picture my boys wall lined with these and i drool at the thought of organization !!! If you'd like to see more of these click here
If I had thought to do this over the years, and there were such things as blogs when I was totally wanting to journal my life, it would be insane to sit back and read through all of the events that I have been through. It kind of saddens me to think there are probably many moments I would enjoy reading word for word about again , then , on the other hand just as there is always evil to accompany good , there would be a ton of which I'd never care to read another single letter about so I guess it is for the best , and as they say everything happens for a reason yaddy yaddy.
So , if your reading this , be prepared for this to not be a blog as written by a journalist or a news caster , entertainment , comedian or any other person of interest, but maybe you'll find that to be a good thing, a step away from a society normal. Til next post ... Peace out

for those who do not use online shipping I highly recommend it , the money I save by using paypal online shipping is fantastic ! Lowering my shipping rates for customers with the online discount plus the free delivery confirmation . The free delivery confirmation number saves .70 per package alone. This adds up as you can imagine when your shipping 1 to 10 packages a day , some days more . I highly recommend Usps's scale for accurate package weights. I purchased mine from Amazon , it was much cheaper and arrived faster then if i had ordered it through usps itself I also order all of my boxes from usps , they are free, free shipping , and this saves a lot as well . Purchasing boxes from places like lowes runs your bill up fairly fast as well. Thanks for reading , I hope my rambling helps someone out there ! ~Cathy
So a quick run down on the person behind the blogging and the ones who influence her daily life. Im Cathy, a wood worker , mom of 6 , grandmother of 2 with a 3rd on the way sometime in Feb 2012 . I make mostly personalized wooden name puzzles right now as there seems to be a much higher demand for them then anything else i make. I hope to get a few new designs more geared for home decor etc soon.
I hope to keep this blog going and that it will grow to be a useful tool as well as a smile maker from time to time
