Mini Update

by - Monday, November 21, 2016

I have been so quiet, I know. On here & social media -- I've been terribly busy with work and since I am closing my store at the end of the year, I decided to try a fair yesterday which - sadly - was just a waste of a Sunday for me. So disappointed. :(

All week & weekend I have been running on zero sleep, zero energy and ended up cuddled in bed at 8pm and out like a light bulb. Ever have those days?

Of course, as every Monday rolls around I go "Yes, I'll start back working out today"... well you and I both know very well THAT didn't happen. I did however find myself back into the kitchen, which is so exciting for me !

I finally finished the Nativity Scene this weekend -- and it was possibly one of the worst, stressed, emotional feelings. I decided this year I would create it using a desk. Of course, great idea ! I had everything planned out in my head. Now, getting down to it, the paper wouldn't stay, the "flame bulb" kept shutting off, and then I opened my figurines to find one of the wise men completely broken. *tear*... and during all that, I was filming for the blog and either my battery was so low that the camera shut off or I just didn't press record? I don't know... but I was a mess.

In the end... it's still not 100% but it's still nice. And my wise man? Well, lets just say he looks like quite the badass with a wicked face scar!
