I need a Dollar Dollar

Enjoy this

So, I am beginning a new experiment. Selling my crafts online.......... I have sold stuff online before. On eBay, I've sold toys, books, movies, and comics, a few handcrafted items - jewelry, blankets, bags, wine glass charms. I was even approached by a woman to sell my Wine Glass Charms in a new online hand craft only site. It was spotty but I had a few sales. I joined Etsy in 2008. No complaints, especially since I have yet to list anything there. But I recently learned about ShopLocket and decided to give it a go.

I have a bunch of things that I have been creating and now it's time for them to find new homes. I happily made each one from start to finish, and enjoyed every stitch. My new hobby is excellent for relaxing and keeping my hands busy (in all my free time - LOL), but all the things I have made are quietly waiting in a cubby to be claimed.

Please look at what I have to offer, share with your friends, let's help these lovely items find their homes. :)

No tornado.... No power..... No talking

So the power went out because of a severe storm that just ripped thru.  I mean the tree tops kissed the grass, severe wind and rain, then the power went out.

The oldest got bored and started blasting Determinate from Lemonade Mouth from her Kindle Fire, twins bouncing wildly around the house.  Nana reading, daddy reading, me.... Emailing and calling the power company for a estimated duration of this torture.

Now that the music is off, the kids are actually quiet.  Little man is now playing some educational preschool game on the kindle fire, the oldest is reading Nancy Drew (the first book in the series) on my Kindle. And the mini princess is milling about telling everyone she's angry.  

I keep hearing sirens outside.  But at least the rain stopped.   Power has been out for an hour now.....
Could totally nap.  Gonna start gathering my candles and flashlights, that usually gets the power to come back on.  

And why do so many people right in our community, like 2 streets over have power and our street doesn't???? All the lines are buried... Shouldn't we all be on the same grid?

Now dinner......... I figure we can grill something....... Or we can order in...... Where's that number?
Thanks Diane for the suggestion...... I am adding University Mall Theaters to the calendar! That's the one where you can catch Brad and Janet every Saturday night..... Not for the kiddos but tonnes of fun!

2013 Summer Movies for the Kiddos

Summer time means always having a boredom buster up your sleeve. Luckily most of the theaters in this area offer FREE or CHEAP movies for kids all summer long.  So I have put them all into one easy calendar. Click on the movie for details like ticket prices, run time and reviews by Common Sense Media.
So far ALL movies begin at 10AM (doors open 9:00/9:30). Let me know if you want me to add another theater. astralv54 (at)
Oh! I also added a few extra things going on around town, like live music and live animals at the library.
