She's Baaaaack

Forgive me!! 
I seem to have fallen off the edge of the earth
just before Christmastime. 
Well, I won't claim to have returned,
but I'm going to try. 

I'm working on clearing out my home.

knick knacks, collections,
"useless" nostalgia,
had-to-have-its, things, stuff, and the like. 
We're switching two of the kids' rooms around,
painting them as well.
How's that going?
Just note that I have no photos.

My house is a mess,
with a capital "M".
A sty.

And, because I didn't have enough on
my plate, I started a business!
Oh, yes!
I'm selling all my glorious treasures
on my Etsy shop -
full time now,
although the pay is certainly not so.
Perhaps it's the getting-started breaks.
That's what I'm telling myself.

I've changed the name of my little shop, too.
From "Restless Fingers" to
(insert drum roll here...)
"Compass Jannock".

No.  It doesn't have je ne sais quoi,
but it's quirky
and has meaning.
Jannock is an old, old word
that means
pleasant; outspoken; honest; genuine; straightforward; generous.
I like that.
I want to be that, to emulate that.
So I also choose Compass.

My talent is clearly not with naming businesses,
This isn't likely to prove memorable.
My first choice was Knackatory,
but that was taken.
C'est la vie.

Well, I suppose these piles won't organize themselves...

About Me

My photo
As long as I'm on this journey, rambling through life's exhilarating highs and trudging heavily amongst it's incapacitating lows, I might as well share whatever may be gleaned from my little bits of wisdom and my many missteps. No room for judgment from this broken mama. I'm writing from my heart: raw, open, messy, but saved. And I'm still thanking God!
