How are you doing tonight? Things here are going well.
If you didn't already know, I have been selling Avon for almost 2 years. Things have been kinda slow. So what I recently decided to do was take my business to a new level by opening my own online shop. I created my own website through Avon. It is really neat.
The address is: www.youravon.com/plobato
You have to do a couple of things. First, register. On the "shop" link you can register. Please do. Next, SHOP! Take a peek at the different brochures there. Avon has a new men's catalog. So take a peek! Next, if you live far away, choose to ship direct for your order. Then, you have to enter my phone number so I get the credit for it that way. 303-359-2540.
I am new at this online shopping business from a merchant's point of view. So bear with me as I go thru the motions in the beginning. If you have any questions or concerns, do let me know. Have fun shopping! Christmas is coming!
I appreciate your time! I look forward to doing business with you in the future!

I went to the store today and bought supplies for the new December block I am making. A picture of it would not upload here. It is a December Flip It by Lizzie Kate.
I haven't stitched in a long time. I tried to do a halloween piece but never finished it. So I am hoping that by starting this new piece I will get it done. I want to get it done by Christmas for sure, but my ultimate goal is to get it done by December 1st. Today is November 1st. I have one month.
I like to stitch. It keeps my hands busy and my mind focused on stuff that is not bad.
Things on the home front are going well. My daughter starts basketball practice today. She will be playing in sports now til the end of the year. She plays basketball till March and then starts volleyball right after that. She is getting over a broken pinky so I hope that she doesn't suffer any injuries during this season. But, I really hope she just has a good time. She has new coaches this year! They look like great coaches too so I am excited for the season.

Your Japanese name should be
You can be compared with
autumn, the way the autumn weather changes, is
how your feelings change. You have these mood
swings you can't control; one moment you're
happy, the next you're feeling almost
depressed. You're probably sensitive and

I decided NOT to take out all of the stitches from the pillowcase. I am going to leave them as is. It doesn't look perfect on the backside, but I did my best. So I am going to finish it sooner then I planned on. I have about a weeks left work on it. I will keep updated photos on what it looks like here.
For now, here is the sun! She is really shining brightly. I need that now. Her name is Capri as in Capri sun! Get it! So there she is, Capri!

It is not going to look professionally done, but you can safely say it is not machine made. You can tell it is hand made.
I found some flour sacks at Walmart. So I have patterns to add to them too. So I have new projects on the horizon.
I have been feeling weird lately. Not too bad. I am not complaining. I just have not had the laughs. I have felt kind of somber lately. Not depressed, just not happy.
I think I will feel better once I get some of my cross stitching pieces done. They will hopefully look nice. I cannot do anything perfectly. But, I try.
This will be a busy weekend without Elena. She has youth group all weekend. There is a movie marathon and it lasts all weekend. I will be free this evening. I will be able to work on my sun piece and the pillowcase. Yay!

The first picture is a picture of what I have worked on this evening. I finished the leaves.
This next picture should be the dogs that I want to complete.
This one should be of a logo that I am working on as a surprise gift. So I can't go into much detail here.
Then, I have started to work on my little doggies. So here it is.
This picture should be the pillowcase from a higher view. I want to show the whole thing if I can.
Using this new camera is not as easy as it looks. It has a real easy point and shoot setting which I use normally. But, there are ways you can adjust the lighting so the pictures come out better. I don't know how to do that yet. I am trying to learn how to take a basic picture still. Part of me is not really happy with the camera. I don't know why. I feel like I should have gotten something better. But, for the money it isn't that bad. It uses a Carl Zeiss lens. I have to look up on the web who this guy is so I can see what is so special about Carl Zeiss anyway.
Mom isn't feeling well. The doctor talks about doing a hip replacement on the good hiop and that makes her skin crawl. So she doesn't want anything to do with it now. It is hard to see her in such pain. I wonder what she would be if she were not so ill.
I have an allergy attacking me or something. It has left my nose running. I feel miserable. I am taking medicine but it is not really helping. I don't know if that is causing these weird manic symptoms or what. I just know that I am glad I can confine myself to the basement and not have to worry about dealing with the general public. I can't stand people now. I don't know why.
I wish I knew more to add to this stupid blog. I can do it! I know I can. I just have to figure out how to do it on this site. I want to include fun stuff, but I don't know what kind of fun stuff I want to add yet. I am still thinking about it.
For now, this will have to do. I will have to be happy with this. Hopefully, the next time I report here I will feel better.

I plan on using this for xstitching news. I also want to use this as a way to let go of some of the things that bother me during the day.
We will see what happens. My only concern is letting this out on the internet. I have to be careful of what I say.
