Good News/Bad News

First the bad news, on March 31 my boss informed me that I no longer had a job. It's a rather complicated explanation, so lets just say I was not let go due to anything I had done, it is just that they were forced to move their corporate office, 3 hours away, leaving me behind.

The good news is that I finally have some free time to do a few things I didn't have time for before. I have always wanted to start a little etsy shop and I have finally got one started. You can find a button there on the right that will take you to my shop. I have a few quilts to sell, along with a bunch of postcards. I have two boxes full of vintage patterns I know I'll never make again. But there is one item I have sold before and has always been popular, Christmas ornaments. I have started off with my most favorite, mini stockings.

I am not expecting to replace my full time job with selling a few items on etsy, but it is keeping me busy and a few extra dollars could help out.

I'm sorry to hear about the job. I guess there's a lot fo that going on these day. I hope the etsy shop works out well and at least keeps you out of trouble with all this newfound free time! LOL!

Sorry to hear about your job - seems like there continues to be a lot of changes and reorganizations going around. Keith's company just did a reorganization and his job changed but they were very anxious to keep him so we did OK. Hope it all works out OK for you.

Sorry to hear about the job loss but hope new doors open wide for you.
Any chance you might offer any of your cute baskets on etsy? Will keep checking!
