Good Monday Morning and New Offerings

So far my 5 days off in a row hasn't been very productive. Grrrr... I have today and then tomorrow, which is the BFF gathering. So that means I need to get my behind busy. I did manage to finish some really cute Valentine yo yo mats that are for sale on my selling blog. Which reminds me I will be adding some new wood goods today for your viewing pleasure. This is just a sampling...

Remember my new resolutions? Well, I have stuck to one of them so far. LOL. The paying off my debt one. Did you really think I could keep them all? You all know me too well. Which leads me to hang my head again. I bought some more fabric from a gal on Facebook. These are just plain solids. They remind me of colors Amish would use in their quilts. And lucky for me I picked up an Amish quilting book last year. Ha so it doesn't count this year for breaking a resolution. Wow! I got off track here. Back to paying off my debt. If you haven't read this book I suggest it if you need some help with debt.

I have managed to pay off two bills so far. Go me!!!!! I am working hard at whittling away my debt. When I get my taxes done I want to pay off a couple more. HOWEVER, I will be creating some new ones. (sigh) My son needs braces. I just need to find a different orthodontist then the one my daughter goes too. But I won't get into that. Of course the new year starts for my insurance so anytime I use it I have to pay my deductible of $2000 first. Who has that kind of cash lying around??? Certainly not me. Hence paying down my debt. DUH! Then of course I will be done paying for my car in August, but now things are starting to break on it. I need to fix the passenger window so it goes up and down. It's only been broke about 1 1/2 years. And now whenever you go down the road you can't hear anything because my driver side door is leaking air. So that means I have to sing louder because my music is up louder and that just ain't pretty. LOL. I'm sure the people I pass can hear me. It's either the hinge or seal going bad. When it rains it pours right? I just jinxed myself didn't I?

Sorry about the short post, but I have things I need to get done today. Not sure how I will fit it all in, but I'm gonna try. I will hopefully have some things to show you tomorrow that I have whipped up. I have some great ideas. Or at least I think so. LOL. So have a great day and stay warm if you have been having cold temperatures like we have. Nothing like having your nose hairs freeze when you go outside. LOL.

On your way to debt free one debt at a time. Good for you. Be proud. I think that is one of the hardest things to do. Only one window in my Jeep works. Good thing the air still works on those hot summer days. The back tailgate & window will not open so it makes it hard to get bags in at walmart. I get my work out. I hope your window & door will soon be fixed. Your sings are nice. Blessings!

It is slow going, but it's going... keep it up!!!
