Working At Home

It's been a while since my last post; and honestly I didn't think I'd be able to post properly today.  I burnt my left hand while making pancakes this morning and had to wrap it up with honey and bandages to wait for it to heal a little.  Believe me, it'll hurt more tonight and tomorrow as the real healing sets in.

Yesterday, I was off to volunteer work in the morning and then came home and washed up a bit, tidied up the lounge and made the bed. 
It was nice to get away from the unit complex for a bit as I'm really getting very  tired of my neighbour.  She not a very nice person at all; and while I was out, her friends' kids got into my pot plants out the front and threw the little silver stones everywhere, so I had to go and pick them all up and put them back; something the parents should either should have done or their kids should have been made to do.  But in all honesty, my neighbour doesn't have much respect for her landlord as she doesn't keep her place, the back yard or the car port tidy.  He has been by and seen it, but I don't know what he thinks of how she keeps it.  However, there's nowhere for her daughter to play in the backyard as there's a large crate there, a mattress and a large dining room table in the middle of the yard, and no space for her little girl to play.  Normally when people have children, they invest in swing sets, see-saws and other outdoor toys for them to play on, and they want to keep an eye on them; but not this one.  So, I'm not sure what's going to happen next.

Anyway, Crafty Pegs is going well.  I found myself some Dolly Pegs and have been working on some designs.  I glued some magnets onto the backs of pegs where one side worked out but the other side didn't... and now I have Magna-Pegs, and the Cool Pencils have a great opinion level amongst people I've told them about.  However, I have no orders coming in; which is a bit of a concern.  But this does give me time to work on my pegs so I can put up set of pegs for sale online and get people to buy them if they wish at any time.  So far, I have 4 lots of pegs all wrapped up ready to post off, there's pencils all painted up ready to be personalised, about 8 Magna-Pegs ready to be sold and sent off in the mail and 2 Dolly Pegs all done up and a gold Dolly Peg to have a design painted onto it.... so I'm working hard on this.  
I've also been handing out business cards all over the place and have some at the Logan Art Gallery for anyone to take too.  I just hope this takes off soon.  But on the other side of the coin, it's only been going for about 3 weeks, so I keep on working hard and I'll be okay and word will get around faster once some good, positive feedback is reported on my site. 

This coming week is busy.  I have Craft Group tomorrow, washing everything on Tuesday, shopping on Wednesday... then Thursday and Friday I'm organising myself  to get to Mum and Dad's place again to work on getting Dad's lawn back to what it was.  I'll be working on trying to get their plants watered - even though the place will dry out quicker than the desert again no matter what I do.
Then, on Saturday, it's the AFL Grand Final Day... on this day, I'm not leaving the house.  I'm going to leave the television going all afternoon up nice and loud to listen to the game all day and work on my craft while eating popcorn as my team got into the finals!  Yes!  The Hawthorne Hawks are playing!  I hope they win!  They really need another win!  Go the Mighty Fighting Hawks! Until my next post, take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.
