And now I’ll do whats best for me

Just because something is simple, does not mean its going to  be easy.

Change, for example, is never easy for me.

But sometimes you have to. You have to just put your foot down, and say “enough!”

October is going to bring some big changes for me, making them is what’s best for me.

It started with removing the 2 people I had put on my phone plan that were not paying their share $50 a month, over 2 and 3 years! Well yes it added up ($100 times 24 and/or more months) and yes I’m friggin stupid for putting them on in the first place, but I thought that’s what you did helped friends out with whatever you could. I was used. Neither one of these people texted me, or did anything for that matter to keep up their end of the friendship. I was a door mat. Both could go ahead and buy their smokes, weed and booze, yet could not cough up the money to cover the cell bill.

And I suffered sometimes giving up food to cover the bill.

I put up with it never saying one word, so it is no ones fault but my own that I allowed this to carry on for so longer.

And neither, now with their new numbers, texted to give me that number.

Friends? No definitely not!

Now of course I didn’t even just shut them off I gave them both 2 weeks notice that I would do it, and not a word on it.

I bet good money all they could think was “Damn that sucks free rides are great!”

But still not a word from them, and I’m done reaching out. I’m done being a doormat, a free ride, a rainy day friend.

I am better than that. I deserve better than that.

I’m going to carry this over to everyone in my life. if you want me in your life, reach out to me 1st for once.

Otherwise, you are never going to hear from me again.

Gamer Girl

This is the phase I use when people ask about my daughter.

She’s a “Gamer Girl”.

Soon to be 20 years old, she is part of a generation of Tech Savvy online gamers.

Of course she’s so much more than just this,

but she and her friends, yes you Kat! (lol)  are the inspiration for this bangle set.

Not currently in my etsy store (sold out so fast!), it is always available made to order.

I love this stacking style of bangles and charms. But even more so the uniqueness if these custom made charms, so unlike anything you’ll ever find in the mall.

But why stop there?

Gamers often have gear, they have gadgets!

Between my 3 kids the costs run into the Thousands! And there’s dozens of gadgets/games and gear to go with that.

So, because of that I was also inspired to make…

(yup that’s right I can sew too!)

This custom printed cotton Retro Nintendo Controller “Gadget Bag”.

This lil clippy bag is water resident (a serious must for costly things!), fully lined, and heavily padded (that ipod is made of glass ya know!?). Its little size is deceiving (approx. 8x5in). This bag holds gadgets of many sizes, or makes for the perfect essentials bag (phone/keys/wallet/chapstik).

Of course, this is me pictured below, but this happens to be my 13 year old sons gadget bag.

So go ahead…

Toss it loose in your tote or book bag. Clip it to your belt loop on the go, or  just carry it like a clutch.
