The 411. . .

Hey, y'all! : )

Just wanted to touch base with the few of you, that read my blog.

Firstly, as of today I have lost 28.6 lbs!! YAY me!!

I still have more I want to lose, but seriously, I already feel like a new person.

I've gone down 2 dress sizes and some of my shoes have even gotten too big!

How weird is that?!

I feel more focused, more patient, more determined and just more alive than I've felt in a long, long time.

I'm not just going through the motions, anymore.

Don't get me wrong, I still have bad days but I recover from them so much more quickly than before.

Life is good. : )

My booth at the antique/collectible store opens next Thursday and I'm still excited but I am getting more nervous by the day. I don't know why, I just hope people like my stuff, I guess! : )

I'm doing this more as a hobby than anything, it's just something I truly enjoy.

It's actually stress relieving to me.
It's like I don't have a care in the world, when I am working on something.

I guess you could call it, "creative therapy"? : )

We are starting off small and just have random things from around our home and few things I've made or refinished, thus far.

I do have a few more projects waiting in the wings, though.

Currently, I am redoing an end table and have the paint in my hair today to prove it! LOL

I really want to make my booth something fun and something that people will remember (in a good way, of course).

I did move some stuff in last weekend and met my "neighboring" booths, they are both women and both of them are new at this as well, and seem to have the same mix of emotions that I do.

It's been fun to see the whole store coming together.

One of the old vendors gave me some information about a few of the upcoming auctions and I've never been to one so, I am excited about the prospect of that.

Have you ever been to auction? If so, how did you like it?
Any advice for an auction newbie?

I'm really excited to see what this adventure holds for us, and am so glad we decided to take this chance.

If you made it this far, bless you.

We've been some busy bees and thank you for taking the time to keep up with us and by the looks of my neglected Google reader, y'all have been busy too!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
