Howdy! Before we get started, you might want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine here, as I tend to ramble a bit...First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the reason for this blog in the first place. You see, I have another blog called, "365 Days Of The Year." Four years ago, I started it as a challenge to post a photo a day on it for a year, and I did! When my year was up, I thought I could just drop it, but I found I missed it. So, instead of the pressure of taking a "picture worthy picture" every day, I just started to post random thoughts and stories of my family and friends, with an occasional picture. After each year, I would have the entire year made into a hard cover book, to some day give to our son Landon. I also have a handbag business that I do on the side from my full time childcare business. Occasionally, I would post on my blog, things about purses or shows/expos that I was doing and it just didn't feel right. It was business and my blog was for family, friends, and my place to go to vent or just tell my little stories. I would also post a bit about business on facebook and that didn't feel right either. Now, I have started to dip my toes in a little crafty stuff. Nothing major, but a little something here and there and I needed a place to put it along with my purses that felt right. That place is here. Here I will post things about purses, re-purposing, flea marketing, or maybe just take you along on a few road trips with me. Wherever it takes us, I hope the trip is as much fun for you as it is for me. Ready to ride?

I know. I know. The length of that purse site link is insane! But, when I created it, I couldn't think of anything short and cute that wasn't already taken, like... "The Swedish Cowgirl." Ha! By the way, I am 1/2 Swedish. On the other side it's a bit Heinz 57. English, Dutch, German, Irish, Chinese and Indian! My dad's side was the wild side! So, it is what it is. I am what I am.

Who's The King Of Delivery?

I have been ordering purses like crazy to gear up for the big Wheaton Craft Fair, so my UPS and Fed Ex guys are getting quite the workout. Normally, when the UPS/FED EX  guys drop off my packages, they just open the door and set them inside. I have told them to do this, as the dc kids and I are usually on the other end of the house, and there's really no reason for me to be there. If I know both of them are going to be making deliveries, I move the boxes out of the way after the first drop off to make room for the next guy. Today the first guy to drop off just left one small box. (I won't say who, to protect their innocence. ha!)  So I didn't bother to move it. I just left it there. While I was serving the dc kids dinner, I heard the next guy arrive, but I just kept on with the dinner service. After I got everyone fed, cleaned up and in bed for their naps, I went to check out my goodies. Well....this actually made me laugh. Guess one of those guys wants me to know who's KING of the deliveries! I'm just glad my little box on the bottom didn't have any breakables in it!
