social medias a weird thing
the other day i read something about how its designed for people to compare each other against one another as opposed to truly connecting people. its changed and does anyone else notice this?
these days i post things online to no one in particular. ravings of a lunatic, the subway comedian, soap box and megaphone. i forgot how to sell things and that meant i forgot how to project this idealized image to the public which guided me towards a self i planned based on commissions. is that weird? am i a weirdo? probably huh. anyway i wanted to make some stuff cos im tired of posting old stuff that hasnt sold, probably no one will ever buy it by now. sheesh. but i dont want to have to sell the things i want to make. like altering an old dress into a skirt, or finishing small details on old projects i found while organizing my sewing supplies.
also my blog layout is so old. i dont remember how i coded the whole thing but i do remember doing that and learning the basics. ugh what a nightmare. i dont really like any of the templates i found and i havent retired this blog so i guess im going to need to update it.

Ive re-organized my room furniture so many times already argh!!! Still not sure about this new arrangement... It feels more private but am I maximizing the light? I wanted to arrange it so that I can use the little sofa I found to study on but now its in the darker area of the room, which feels super cosy, and I can see out the window via the mirror, but is this the right spot for the sofa? I don't know!!!! What I did do is move the desk to have direct sunlight, which is obviously needed... I think I need another sofa. TWO sofas. Yes, one for my dark cosy craft area, and another for my study area.

Kirks Folly Jewelry from Rhode Island

I only recently found out about Kirks Folly line of jewelry

Opened in 1979, it was literally the last jewelry manufacturer based in Providence Rhode Island and it closed Nov 1, 2014.

It looks like it was high end at one point but I think it was sold on TV in america before the ladies retired. Great thread on its closing, many sad fans and bits of info: http://community.qvc.com/t5/Jewelry/Kirks-Folly-closing-their-doors-It-s-over/td-p/1298245

Looking through some of the charm pieces, I have some of the exact charms I bought off Rhode Island sellers. Finally learned who one of the big name brand manufacturer the re-sellers allude to!

Its good stuff. The vintage pieces are amazing of course.

This is the kind of stuff I want to make. Or at least able to make. The pieces are so beautiful!!!

KIRKS FOLLY
I haven't been keeping up with posting items for sale online!

Wasn't I always writing about motivation.

I need to move house. Find some people to hang out with. Muster up some of that missing spark.

I'm getting older and I realize now that not having any plans for life might have not been the best plan because I need to go to the dentist quite severely and I don't have any money to go.

Aside from financial problems causing all the problems, there isn't really much else to report.

It's Your Life Handmade. Better with a buddy! Two bums under a bridge. Yin and Yang.  Missing my other half.
