The Penny Worthy Project is my response to tightening our belts. Gas is so expensive, food is too, everything seems to cost more theses days. How are you getting by? Do you sell on Etsy? Ebay? Thrift shop regularly? How are you getting by on less when everything costs more? Are you creating art, sewing or painting to let your soul breathe? I'd love to know! Leave a comment or a link to your blog post to join in and tell the world how you are making it.
Well I can't believe it's almost the solstice, seems like just yesterday the days were short and cold, and now here we are on the cusp of full blown summer. The days are maxing out up here around 19-20 hours of sunlight and almost constant twilight, minus the vampires. This can be very taxing on a person if you don't regiment yourself and get some sleep, I used to feel that if it was light out I wanted/needed to be up. I've learned as an adult(?) that I do in fact need sleep and to go to bed, I can only be fueled up and ready to tackle a day if I sleep. Here's to summer solstice and sleep, hurrah!
I spent a good part of the week sick or very close to sick with a nasty summer cold, so glad it's over. I was still a productive little mama and made two kinds of beautiful, delicious and thrifty jelly. Behold:
Wild Rose Jelly.
I went school clothes shopping after I was feeling better and we scored lots of nice boys shirts. A dollar a piece, can't beat that!
Some of the jewelry I bought last week is fixing to become new pieces, I think I'm going to knit a cuff and affix something like this:
to it. Or should I sew a bracelet? Something I'm tossing around. What do you think?
Peace and Love--
