Projects

Filed under: Blogging,Hobbies,Television,Website — Amy @ 5:30 pm

I’ve been working on a few little projects lately, which have been eating up most of my spare time.

For one thing, I’m planning another overhaul of this website. Changing operating systems, servers, etc. The new site is just about ready to launch and I like it, but more importantly it will make things easier on me in the future. I’m leaving EE and going back to WordPress, which is not the easiest thing to do, but I think the benefits will outweigh the pain in the butt that the migration has been.

Also, I’m making bows. Lots and lots of hair bows. And handmade cards. I’ve entered my first craft fair, the Nutcracker Craft Faire here in Homer. I keep hearing people talk about it, so I thought I’d give it a shot and maybe make a little money for Christmas gifts. At least, I was hoping that would be the case, but I’m finding that crafting is so expensive that I’m going to have to sell a lot of bows and cards to make any profit at all.

On the bright side, the craft work is giving me something to do with my hands while Jens and I catch up on Lost in the evenings. I hate being idle while watching TV. We just finished Season 5 so I guess we should start looking for a new series to start when we get through Season 6. Any suggestions?

    Look for craft supplies online cheaper to cut down your overall cost. My friend and I are going to try making mums and mum braids next year so I will be doing some ribbon shopping online too.

    Zephra, if you’re looking for ribbon online, try http://www.giftsintl-us.com/ – they seem to have good prices and reasonable shipping if you don’t need it right away. Also http://www.theribbonspot.com has ribbon that you can buy by the yard. It’s not as cheap as Gifts Int’l but sometimes you don’t need 25 yards in each color/pattern.

About Me

Hi. I'm Amy. I started this website in 2005 as a place to deposit my journal and photos. It has gone through a few incarnations and masquerades as a family site, but since I'm the only one who contributes to it, it's really all about ME, ME, ME.
