Oh, has it been a month?


So, ch-ch-ch-ch-chaynges.

I quit my job. For those of you who hadn't heard the gossip yet.
Basically, I was working at head office for a direct marketing company, and had to re-assess. I had worked from home for 5 years before that, and although I was earning a whole $200 more a month at the job I was keeping less.

And my house just fell apart.

So, I've set up shop at the Penetanguishene and Midland Farmers markets, I've got www.littlescotia.ca and www.VintageWitch.com on the go, plus,

I'm a Watkins Independent Associate again!

I love the products, but quit when my youngest was little. I felt like something had to give. However, now with all the experience learned working from the INSIDE of a direct marketing company, I"m working my business full time. And it's fabulous.

I finally got down to gettin' to know my new sewing machine. She is SAWEEEET. Fast, though. Zero-to-HOLY-MOLY in .5 seconds. I can't wait to get down to some new dollies. Oh la la.

I've also been baking like a mad woman. With Watkins products, ofcourse. Peddling my wares at the farmers markets. Biscotti, little gingerbread cookies, petite banana breads. Cinnamon spice cookies.

I need a bigger kitchen. And a sewing room.

It's on my wish list.

Sounds great!! I wish I lived closer, I love farmers markets, we have one here but it is just sad, lol! Only about 4 vendors and no crafty stuff :(
I also wish for a big kitchen and a craft room!!!

Well, although my kitchen is a pretty good size, I manage to fill it up pretty quick!

I don't exactly have a craft room... I have alot of boxes that I get into, spread all over the kitchen table, and then pick up again when I'm done. I would LOVE a space where I could just leave everything out that I"m working on. It would make sewing easier, with the amount of kidlet interruptions there are in a day!

Nice to see you are reading :)
