Out with the old in with the new

Stop me now...I thought I would do some research of ebay by buying some things. I got a little carried away. I love everything I purchased. My favorite are the Victorian ladies on the Christmas patterns. They were used in the 20's to wrap candy boxes....I love them!!!!!! Stop buying Start selling....I know I know. Like the title says out with the old in with the new. Why do I like the old so much and have such a problem parting with it?????

This is a picture of the albums I finished last year---did I just say I finished them?????? Yes, and that is huge for as many classes I have taken and projects I have started I don't finish them. So, this feels good I can move on to new things.
Today I also took pictures of my swaps that I sent out. I will share these later as not to wreck any surprises. The vintage heart shop hosted by Dolly.was really fun to put together. I just tried to do the linky link thing and if that works that is another accomplishment for the week. I just have to remember to have the sites addresses near me when I go to post.
OK transitions into the new year.....a lot slower than I like. Everytime I feel better and get back into the groove I start to feel whoozy. Anyway this week is, car inspected, resume changing and the never ending search for work. The computer is great, but not having actual contact with people is frustrating.
Next week I have jury duty......I will also be doing a job search there during lunch to save on gas. I tested myself typing. I thought I was pretty good, but I just about qualify for something in the judicial world of jobs--but, it's worth a shot.

Geralyn sweet chick, your blog looks familiar but I can't remember ever visiting. Hmmmm.... Well, I am thrilled that you came by and visited with me today, honey.

I HATE flying so when we retired I told hubs that never again will I fly. If I can't get there by car I ain't going, chickadee!

Nice meeting you......

Hi Geralyn, Unfortunately I am not as good as I should be about making over dirty laundry. I need to schedule my priorities. How do you find out about swaps? I always come across them too late. It is something I would definitely love to get involved with. Hope your job search is fruitful, it seems a bit scary out there. Best of luck, Pam

Isn't Ebay just the best. I can spend a whole day browsing for everything under the sun. It is just like window shopping...without the physical exhaustion...mental exhaustion maybe. Love all your creations.
