Original Things

Original things for original people.

Five Months

I am very sorry for not posting.  But things have been crazy.  In June, I had my gall bladder removed.  Which understandable, I was very busy trying to get things done before the big day.  Things like getting a haircut, getting the order for Koda’s Kountry, paying all of my bills advance, and filling my car with gas.

At the time, I didn’t know of how much time I needed for healing.  My doctor told me that I cannot drive for a week because that was where the incisions was going to be.  But after that, I do not know.  I had spoken people who had it and all of their recovery time is different.  So I decided to take a week off, not worry about Original Things and anything else.  Just think of that week as a mini holiday, without the fruity cocktail.  Just rest and heal.  Do not push yourself or else, my healing was going to be extended.  Well that didn’t happen.

To start with, my surgery had a slight complication.   A couple of hours later after I was discharged, I started bleeding again where I was rushed into the ER.  It was one hell of a night.

As to the mini-holiday, I honestly wished that I had that fruity cocktail.  By Day 2, despite the pain, I was stir crazy.  I ended up finishing up a couple of pages in my art journal.  Like this one.

I also made a couple of handbound journals which I need to stop because I have at least a dozen that needs to be decorated.

I also did some practise on watercolor. Practising my watercolor pencils and new techniques.  I got a handle of using both Distress Markers and Stampin’ Up makers, but those pencils are harder to use.  Earlier this year, I made a coloring book for my bf’s daughter.  I had extra coloring pages so I thought what the heck, why not use them as practise.  It would be fun practising on Winnie the Pooh.  The only problem that I had was these pages were printed on an inkjet printer because that is all I had.  Even after heating setting it, the ink ran made the pages muddy.  And right now, I am not planning to buy a laser printer.


Unfortunately things didn’t stop there.  I had to deal some personal issues which I do not wish to talk about here.  And unfortunately, I am still dealing with them.

I am back in the craft sale business, my first sale is in Bentley on November 7th and another one on December 5th, I am completely panicking.  My big concern the things that I hopefully sell in the November sale will have to be replace within a month.  I can make a hat in two days, a scarf in 2 two weeks and a dishcloth in a day.  Right now, I am trying to finishing up my handbound books and albums which I am hoping they will sell.  I am trying to make enough to I don’t have to replace them during that month.

But my big concern is figuring out the prices.  How much do I charged for these things.

Here are a few things that I will be selling
