Hello to all! It has been a whirlwind week.. that just flew by. I have opened a new store called For the Love of Tana I hope you come and browse for a bit. I only have a few items listed at the moment but over the next few days I will be adding lots of new items so check back often. Hope you have a wonderful new week.

Where does the time go.... This blog was originally going to be about my adventure of being a single parent of a handicapped child, working full time and going back to school. It was a long bumpy road but, I graduated, found what I thought was the perfect job...and my daughter grew up.

Things have changed drastically since I was last here. That perfect job I thought I had... turned out not to be so perfect... and slowly one by one all the people I worked with originally gave notice and left... I don't know why I stayed on so long, every time someone left I was assigned part of their duties since they were not replacing the people that were leaving... This job was really wrecking havoc on my life, my health... I was getting sick all the time.. I wasn't sleeping well and my hair started to fall out by the handfuls... there were a few other things but it was time leave. .. I excepted a new job... gave notice.... last day at old job was March 3rd 2014. Heard from new job Feb 24 2014 that contract was not going to be renewed and there actually was no job... so sorry...

My question is... if this is supposed to be a bad thing? A wrong turn...? A run of bad luck? Why am I secretly over joyed... That whole week leading up to March 3rd I could have asked for my old job back, they were not hiring anyone to replace me... but every time (it wasn't many) I thought about it.. I felt ill.

Over the last week I have really evaluated what is important to me and loosing my health over a stupid job is not worth it... It is time for change and getting back to what is important. Spending time with family and friends.. It's time to start my own business doing what I love. Sewing, crafting and vintage patterns.

More to come in the next couple of weeks.

PR Weekend and jetleg

You know how sometimes, you are not really sure you should do something and then you do actually end up doing it and it turns out to be one of the best things that you could have done. Well I had debated for months about doing this. So much so, that I waited till the last minute to sign up, waited till the last minute to pack... i was totally unprepared. I have to say it was one of the most restorative vacations that I have ever been on.

I ate at fabulous restaurants with wonderful new friends

Had a wonderful catered dinner.

shared a laugh or two...

Learned a valuable lesson about reading directions... and eye safety....
If you can not read the warning on that bottle of Clear Care... it states 'Do not rinse lens with Clear Care prior to insertion' There are warnings all over that bottle... Friday morning, guess where this went? Exactly where they told me not to put it... :) my excuse... I had been up for almost two days and was tired and jet legged... I know how to make a good first impression... lets move along...

I went to 'school' and saw some wonderful garments and learned some great tricks with knits...

Added to my stash and was seranaded.

This photo, I see, is missing my Jalie tie top pattern... and an embarrassing amount of trim... elastic, stretch lace, petersham ribbon... I could open my own store and still have enough for me.

And the piece de resistance... vintage clothes up close and personal.. Wow...

I am still jetlegged.. but had a wonderful time and can not wait to go back to Montreal sometime very soon.

who knew

you are lightcyan

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Dummies 101

Well I told you I was computer illiterate. See that post for Wardrobe Refashion........ down there... you don't have far to go, I have not done much blogging lately... I Well my original post saved as a draft on April 24, 2007 actually posted on that same day.... Go figure. :):) I thought, since I am so bright, that since I revised it Oct. 08, 2007 it would post on 10.08.2007 duh.. So now it looks out of context LOLO

Well I am still in school but I am full time now and I am only working three days a week, so maybe sometime soon I will be able to get back to sewing and crafting. I am keeping my fingers crossed anyways..

Over heard...

Over the last couple of weeks there have been many ads on the radio for the Opera Romeo et Juliette. Actually we have been bombarded with them. Well I went to pick my daughter up from school the other day and she was not in a very good mood. So I asked her what was troubling her and She goes....

"We had assembly today and all we got is that awful singing You like. Damn!! I thought Oprah was coming to town and I was going to be on TV!"

Mind you, my daughter is only eleven and I should be washing her mouth out with soap for the swear word but I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath.

Kids say the darnedest things...
