Thank you all for your help and good wishes to get this thing off the ground. I had my first sale and I am working on 2 custom orders of circles and eyes.

I have decided to divide my time even between charity crafting and my Etsy store. Let's see how long this will work out. I am trying to post one new item every day or at least every other day. I can feel Gary's approval - but then again, he supported me in everything I did. He was a wonderful man. It is hard to grasp that he is gone over 7 months already.

I still miss you very much. I love you sweetheart.

Yes, I did it. I opened my Etsy Store. As of this minute I have only 1 item listed - but then again, I just started this afternoon. That will be my job - getting all my listing into the shop.

I can just see Gary sitting in heaven grinning - SHE FINALLY DID IT - YEAH !!!!! He always said I should sell my stuff. Thank you Sweetheart, I love you.

The name of my shop is:

Stop by and check it out. Please give me a chance to stock it first though. Opening Special is FREE SHIPPING within the USA.

It really is 2010 - at least that's what the calendar says.

Yesterday was the 4th of January. To celebrate Gary's freedom we went to IHOP, our favorite breakfast place. I ordered, what we always did - Kitchen Sink and coffee. It is an omelet with everything but the kitchen sink in it - and it is good) We used to order it from the senior menu (smaller portions, smaller price) - but it is not on there anymore. So we just ordered it regular. I had a coupon 2 for 1 - We were even sitting in the same booth we were normally sitting. All of the sudden, the tears came. Without looking at the clock I knew that it was 10:30 - the time they disconnected the machines 7 months ago. I KNOW that eventual it will get better (at least I hope so) I can already go longer periods without crying, and then sometimes, I can't find an end. I miss Gary so very much. Talking to him every night helps.

I am getting ready to open my Etsy store. I've been crocheting up a storm so I can have some inventory. I still have not made friends with my sewing machine - that's still on the agenda. Soon.
