SUccesS happens When you Show Up

Look up! If you want success. Show up. Something
that just does not happen with my blog pages is me actually
showing up to write them.
Achieving success usually happens when we are looking up
paying attention and showing up expecting great things to happen.
No one has been successful doing nothing. Most everyone anyways.
Take time to reinvent what makes us happy is key to
learning what is not working, what could work better,
and how to improve things. No need to head all the way
Back to square one. Start where you have left off and see what
can help.
I have no clue, this is where writers block and road blocks have
prevented my success from building up.
rambling seems to help, may seem like rambling to you
but to me it is brainstorming for ideas of what direction
to go with what i have started and not finished.
was it burn out or just realizing things did not work the way
I thought they would or was it that i just plain did not like
the entire projects that had been started...not sure.
Aries loves starting projects and never finishing them.
That is my sign, we are also great leaders. At this point,
leading is at the bottom of my list until i figure out my actual
direction and next step!
When you believe in yourself others will believe in you and follow.
Got that. Enthusiasm makes things lots more fun. I will be enthused
when i get back to what i love doing again. currently being overwhelmed
life in general slowed me down, a lot. Life happens. Just realized this week
that even when life happens, we must make ourselves happy before we can continue
to make others happy. Art makes me happy. Treasure hunting and adventures make me happy.
 I need to make more art and go on more adventures. Life may happen, but we can choose to make Life happen with happiness.

welcome welcome!

Decided to take the plunge and rent my own little booth at
the local flea market mall filled with treasures!
just East a few miles from The World's Largest Truck Stop
sits The West Kimberly Mall, a hidden gem in Davenport, Iowa.
open 7 days a week!
I called my booth The Painted Chair Shop Booth #6034
and can be found on a more active Facebook page
The Painted Chair Shop there too!
Even have a website created right here from Blogger
While i love being a traveling Gypsy and of course we
should all treat ourselves like princesses, I am guessing
The Painted Chair Shop seemed appropriate for a
name to sell painted chairs and things.
We will see how it all goes!
Oh! even better? Who Doesn't need a few extra dollars
deposited in their Paypal account every now and then?
Try signing up currently for as low as 8 dollars
with me and my team at Abby and Anna's! You could earn
commissions on sales as well as on your downline, or in other
words your people you sign up under you are your downline!
Please do message me at and put
abby sign up in the title so i can find your request!
if you have any questions just ask! Thanks. :)

Christmas is on its way. 
My personal belief is that the spirit of giving should be all year long.

sales vs vine videos

so we all know i love
treasure hunting at thrift stores
estate sales and little shops
on unbeaten paths along the back roads of the midwest...there is something new though besides still learning how to add
a pay now button and order form to my blog page...which is even more work..still i have other outlets for that..and will get to it..for an artist, i when i see new things or think of them, like creating and writing a sequel ending to It's a wonderful life like i believe needs to be done
my next venture includes learning to make a vine video.. so thats next!

Christmas decorating..

Soon i will have a forest of trees indoors. I have always have been fascinated with trees year round for decorating. This is the only time of year the family lets me get away with it all. Cannot help but feel a little bit guilty for going a little overboard, but then remind myself that life is short and we should never feel bad for doing things that truly make us happy. This makes me happy. Helping others also makes me happy. It is a good feelimg when we can smile, be blessed and help bless others too. I like to think that happens when I set out each day to do good things in life. Smile and make someones day, you never know how important and big that small gesture may be to them. While it may be a really small house, i try to make the best of the tiny spaces to make a home, and that is big. Happy Holidays!
