Now what's it gonna be...the computer or the car?

Will it get back to normal??  Got a minute...I gotta vent, well it's not really venting...I don't think :) LOL

My week just in the life of electronics...
First my laptop that I hang onto 24 hours a day, like a baby with a Binky...just went back into the shop! I know...{insert gasp}After about 4 days I got it back still not working well, now it's back in for 5 more or so days...{really?} Then my car's has been having trouble steering...yeah...little things like trouble banking turns, parking and just steering in general...remember that movie years ago called "HAL" I think it was...where the computer took over the house and anyone in it, yeah, that's my car!...{Wow} I know!!! and it was making horrible noises....LOL   Well, now it's been in the shop now for 5 days!!! Yikes!!! Expensive!!!!!'s cool, everything's gonna work out...

In the meantime I had bought myself an Apple you Apple people don't get up-set with me...I absolutely loved the graphics on those, I thought it would be great for the photo's and all on my shop...that's why I went that direction.  But after 2 weeks of trying to learn this Apple with Windows installed on it so I could toggle back and forth so to speak...I took it back today :(  {Aw}
I just can't get it down, it's not helping me with the business side of things. I'm having my old Dell wiped clean and putting in new updated versions of my old programs :) I already feel like a happy camper once again :)  {YaY!}

I guess I learned that I don't do change well :) My car's like 20 years computer's is newer than the car...but I do have a tendency to hang on :) Well, that's it! :) I have learned that you can live without your laptop! And your car...all you gotta do is use the other old Desktop PC and Swipe your husbands truck off and on... aw...There now...I feel much better!

Thanks for the Chat!

Updated the blog...I finally made it back!

Finally.....ha! I made it back here...
Its been forever...I can't believe all my time! 
So....not a writer!!

Well today...I worked on re-vamping my website...Now it has the "alittlescrappy" name on it too besides the "jammertail designs" now I don't feel like I left "alittlescrappy" out of the loop...
I'm just not making as much jewelry nowadays...
so, thought I should just re-vamp it to show both shops :)

The new site is sweet and short ... it takes you to both sites on Etsy....YAY  Then you can get to facebook and the blog here...with a little buttons at the bottom (not shown) in this picture here.
If anyone goes to check it out ... you'll have to let me know what you think and if it behaves alright with the browser you use.

Oh, speaking of Facebook...I just started a {new page} for "alittlescrappy"  I didn't know you could have more than {one}page with a {personal main site page}...I was looking around the rules to see, and a couple of weeks or so ago, I found out that you, now I'm just beginning that too. Stop on by and "like" me :)  It feels good to catch up on things...well at least computer things....hahaha....  Now I just need to do some housework....yikes!!!

Until next time............bye for now :)

Wow ... Christmas is almost here!

This season has found me sick and with a baddddd head cold sinus infection  :(
I can't believe how long this is taking to get over! I'm on my second does of Amox... this should solve it!
I hope :)
I've got some new boas that just came in ... YAY!  I will be putting on "alittlescrappy" , probably not until after this weekend though, as this is our early Christmas, when all the kids and us can get together time wise.
I've been busy working on some more Christmas Pendants for a friend ...  sorry these photo's are not the best in clarity...
I've just got to get back into my jewelry site ...
Here is a dream of mine ... that I will become a more faithful writer on my blog ... the time always seems so spent ... but, I'm going to try :)      
Merry Christmas to everyone!!!
Thank you to all who has been a reader here and those of you who also follow and have purchased from me in my shops! Thank you for being a blessing in my life! :)I truly appreciate it!
Have a wonderful Christmas!!! 
And may God bless you and he has me!Sally

A Pendant for my Grandson

I got the sweetest phone call the other day from my Grandson :) As you see there is this girl ... who is a friend, who is having a birthday soon and he wanted to know if I could make her a little bauble pendant type necklace with her name in it ... well, what could a Grandma say to that ... LOL

As I was getting things out and ready, I just couldn't believe how long it had been since I had just "whipped out something" YIKES .... I think it's been about a year or so since I've sat down to work with my jewelry products ... I just couldn't believe it!!!  Kind of nice to get back into it :)  Hopefully ... I won't wait that long again.

... here's the outcome!
Here's for you Siah xoxo  Grandma!!!

"10 Tuesday Treats" is a segment of a cute blog called Supermom, Alysha the owner of this blog is doing some re-vamping, with Tuesdays as a special time to show and or talk about shops listed on Etsy!  This first segment this last Tuesday was on Wooden Finds, and I felt so honored to have been one of the shops picked with my French stamped natural clothespins :)          

Alysha's blogging started off as a way to share life with her distant family members and now she just can't go without it! It's a "mommy-blog" she admits, but you can find spots about photography, crafts, recipes and more.  A very cute blog ... and now I'm a follower too  :)  Thanks for finding me Alysha!  Sally

Etsy Treasury - Little Millinery Shop

Etsy Treasury - by Noodle

Such a sweet treasury!!!  I love this, soft pastels yummy vintage and more!  Lots of fun items for making crafts and decorating ... beautiful flowers from 32NorthSupplies ... I'm may have to get some of these  :) !!!  A darling little pin cushion...oh so sweet from the ShabbyQueen!  Gorgeous threads and other sewing items listed by MillineryMiss and if you love sewing here's a picture  from LolasRoom ... how cool would this picture be hanging in your sewing or craft room.  Fun retro items like hats, and a hat box from Jackiedretroboutique and Breathecoutures and Carolmai's store

These items took me back to the younger days of my Mom ... she had hat boxes for all her hats stored up in her closet and shoe boxes stacked up with all her high heels ... not a stitch out of place, in an era of where hats were worn every Sunday to church with matching shoes, gloves and beautiful fur pieces!!!  Wow,I used to just look at Mom and think ... she is just gorgeous!  Right out of Vogue! 

I truly fell in love with this treasury ... I'm late getting this listed on my blog, time had gotten away from me, but still truly worth the visit to all these shops! 

I felt very honored to be included with this lovely group for my ribbon shown here that I carry in my shop at AlittleScrappy.  There are more shops listed here within this awesome treasury, besides the ones mentioned above ... take some time here to just enjoy, relax into an era when life went slower things were more simplistic :)  Go and visit them all and enjoy their beautiful items :) 

Now don't forget while your taking all this in ... to visit the creator of this treasury Noodles!  She has wonderful fun items :)  Here's a little preview from her profile ... "Our little nook at Etsy is like a tiny, dusty drift shop in a small, friendly town, shelves packed with strange and unusual items, retro oddities and vintage glamour vanities, along handmade arts and crafts."

Thank you Noodle!!! for your wonderful treasury of memories for me :)
