Show and Tell?

I love participating in show and tell. However this week I hit the wall. I have been burning my candle at both ends and stretching myself way out there. I have not made one thing all week. While sitting still and doing absolutely nothing, I did make some descions though. I cant be in everything that comes along. In addition to this I have my day job and a pet sitting business as well. So, I have decided whats working and what isnt. Make Mine Pink and my website are my main focus. I also will be in the new lollishops. I have been in the beta phase and I really like it. I will keep a few things at the antique mall and market that. I have a few other online malls that are going to be deleted. And etsy as well. Etsy is just not my venue. It works wonderful for some, but not so much for me. I think this is a very good thing. So even if I didnt get anything made phsycially, I did make something mentally:)

I have a pet sitting job this week. This guy is Marley. I love,love,love this dog. Him and his owner live out in the desert though. I have to go out there after dark and there are coyotes! I run in the house. LOL These are some pictures from Marleys house. It is very beautiful though.

This is my Grand daughter Mya and her BFF Savannah.(These pictures are for Shell, my bunny friend. LOL) This is at a small mall area near my house. Mya is the shorter little one:) So, this is my show and tell for this week. Have a wonderful holiday this week my friends. Hugs, gail

Hi Gail,

Your grand daughter is adorable, and so is her BFF! They look so happy.
I just got on etsy, and am going to try a little while longer before deciding if it works for me.!

Have a happy Thanksgiving week!

Hi Gail,

I was just thinking of you and thought I would stop by to say hello. I know exactly what you mean about not having something to Show and Tell. I had no time to work on my S & T for this week. This whole move thing was rough,but hopefully soon I will have a new home. Anyway I looove your pretty granddaughter and her pretty friend. So cute! And I admire that you are watching that beautiful dog in the desert. Hope you are doing well and also April.
Have a great day pink sis!

Aren't grandchildren the best? SO
much fun. That looks like a fun plaza to sit and have a coffee at. Glad you were able to make the business decisions, sometimes we need the quiet to hear ourselves.

Hi Gail! Great pictures. Show and Tell is just that, show and tell. It can be about anything. Yours was wonderful!

Hi Gail,

Your grandaughter is a cutie!! I just adore my two little ones! Never knew it would be so much fun to be a granny~

I'm glad you had time to sit quietly and think . . we all need to do that sometimes. Glad you have a clear direction for where you want to go.

Blessings to you during this Thanksgiving season!

Hi Gail,
Decision-making can sometimes be very trying...even harder than creating physical many things to weigh and knowing that only you can decide what is best for your situation. Your post is lovely. The bunny is so cute and funny and your little granddaughter is just beautiful and happy! Aren't little ones wonderful?! May you and your family be blessed this thanksgiving day!!

Marie said...

Hi Gail,
I hit a snag. Hope this does not post twice. The girls are really cute, but your grand daughter is the cutest. :O) Making decisions is a big accomplishment. Good for you.

Lilli Blue said...

Wow Gail I hear you loud and clear. I think the wall hit me this week. I am doing the same thing. I am figuring out what works and what does not.Life is meant to be enjoyed. I have been doing so much it lost it's joy.
That is why it is so important for me to write a business plan.
it will give me focus.
love the girls sweet as can be.

Your granddaughters are the sweetest ever. I love the huge bunny statue, Shell is going to flip. Sounds like you did quite a bit of soul searching this weekend. I think you made some good decisions.


Cottage Flair said...

Sounds like it was still a productive week for you. The girls are adorable. Good luck with your new decisions.

Craft Diva said...

awww...cute granddaughter, and cute marley. he looks worth going out into the desert for, gail.

i totally understand your week. i have been there before and i believe that there is nothing so productive as making those core decisions that propel you in the right direction. good for you.

happy thanksgiving, sweetie.

Shell said...

Hi cuteness! Ok, first your granddaughter is just adorable! Second I LOVE THOSE BUNNIES!!! I want them for my yard!!! Everyone would definately think I was a crazy bunny lady. hee,hee.

Glad that you were able to think and take a minute to make some decisons. You know I can really relate. We really can't do everything. It's just impossible. We must instead do what works and what we love best.

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for you.

Happy Thanksgiving Gail ! What a pair of sweet girls.

You DID get something done and it is good to realize that we do not have to do EVERYTHING, we can choose what is best for us.

If I had some of those "cacti", I would not have squirrel issues because I could hang the feeders on them!!!!

Hi Gail, I have often found that when I get stretched to the limit, it brings on a great time of clarity and focus as to what we want in our future. It's like we have to get to the breaking point before we slow down and focus.
Your granddaughter is a cutie! Love Marley too!

Cindy - Angel Wings Cottage said...
