Busy as usual

So my first two weeks of school went pretty well in my opinion.  I have been busy working hard to get homework done.  I took a lot of hard classes this semester, which I am regreting, but atleast I am getting them out of the way.

As soon as all this rain stops, I will be taking pictures of bracelets and posting new bracelets on the site.  Its pretty much been raining off and on for a week now, and with me at school or work, there is a limited time I am home that I can take pictures outside.  Lets hope it will be by the end of next week.

So I know I kept saying I was going to try to keep in touch, well, this time I am.  I don't care if its a hey whats up, or just a little blurb, I will be writting more,

I am trying to figure out who I am still, and school starts back on Tuesday (for me).  I really thought I wanted to major in business, but then I really thought about wanting to be a writer again.  So the best way would be to start blogging, whether about Peppy and Belle or everyday life.  Lets see if I still have the 13 year old dreamer in me again, because if shes still in there, that would be great.

Since the last time I updated, a lot of things in my life have changed.  My parents are moving.  I pretty much get the basement of their house, and it will be my own office.  But its kinda bittersweet, because we lived in that trailer for 11 years, and this neighborhood is my home.  But I will be staying with my boyfriend, which is next to my old trailer so I wont be too far away from my home.

I still die everyday that my princess Marbles has left me.  That was one of the hardest things Ive had to go through, losing a pet that I had for 11 years, and since the day she was born.  I still think about her everyday, and tell her I love her everyday.  

About 3 weeks ago I was given a kitten.  I didn't plan on getting any more cats, but this kitten looks just like the first cat I ever had.  Mackenzie was a Himalayan, and one of the best cats I ever had.  She is the grandmother to two of my currently living cats, and was Marble's grandmother also.  But JT is more Siamese I believe, but he is gorgeous.  He is about 9 weeks old, and had been so much fun to have around.

Thats about it for this time, see you guys around.

Rest In Peace, Princess.

My beautiful Princess Marbles died last week, on Tuesday April 24.  She was diabetic, and had a bad reaction to the insulin.  She was still breathing but not responsive when I found her, so we rushed her to the Vet where they told me that she was brain dead, and her heart was going to give out.  I got a few minutes to say goodbye to my angel, and the Vet put her to sleep in my arms, at least she didn't die alone.  She looked so peaceful after she was gone, she was so sick for a while.

I had my cat since the day she was born.  she was 11 years old when she passed.  She was a beautiful princess.  So proper, playful, lovable, and sweet.  I miss her so much.  It has been a very hard week for me, obviously.

I love you Princess, I will never forget you.  Rest In Peace, sweetheart.

My week days simply just go by too fast.  luckily, its almost spring!  I can't wait for warmer weather, longer days to sit outside and just enjoy the outside life instead of being stuck in a house all day long.  Its been a warm winter, though, so I can't complain too much.

I just bought myself 3 new pairs of pants from thaitee.  Honestly, its all I could afford at the moment!  I will be buying more from her soon, I just love her stuff.  Here are the treasures that I just purchased:

I have been busy with a load of homework, and adding new items to the shop.  I can't wait for this semester to be over!

At Hardees, Sundays are the middle of my work week, although, I only work three days, but that doesnt matter.  sundays, however, are my favorite work day, for a many reasons.  One, I get to go into work an hour later to open up the store.  This gives me an extra ghour of sleep, although waking up at 4 am is almost as bad as waking up at 3 am.  Two, I love my customers, and I always get to take my lunch break with two of my favorite customers :)  Al comes in everyday, and he is a quiet guy, but Maggie only comes in twice a week, and Sunday is one of them.  I've known them both for the past 6 years I've worked at Hardees, and they both came with me to the store I am at now, from the old store that I use to work at.  Finally, the third reason I love Sundays is...ONE MORE DAY OF WAKING UP WAY BEFORE THE SUN COMES UP.  Not that I get to sleep in late durring the week (I get up at 7 a.m. to get the kids ready), but atleast the sun is up before I am!

Hope everyone is doing well :)  My shop has been booming latley, almost as if I hadn't gone away for 4 monthes, but I've been doing a good job at balancing my work, job, etsy store abd having time for my kids, boyfriend and pets.

Have a wonderful week guys!

A week

My shop has been reopen for a week, and I am still working on it A LOT.  But I have had a few sales, which I am excited about.  I can't wait to be as successful as I was before I closed.

It's almost time for midterms again at school, which isn't as exciting, but I can't wait for this semester to be over.  Even though its only my second semester, it is extremely hard, and I find myself wondering what I got myself into.  But I passed a test that the professor said we would all fail, so it gives me hope that I might make it through alright.  Just need to work a little harder than I did last semester.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

New Look!

I just updated my blogs looks, it's a lot better looking now than it was before.  I opened my shop back up 3 days ago, and while I haven't had a sale yet, I am happy to be back in business.  I am still in the process of listing items, but that just takes time.

I made a website for Peppy and Belle!  Visit it here and let me know what you think.  As always, suggestions are welcome!

Well its getting late, and time t go to sleep.  Have a good night everyone.

As part of reopening Peppy and Belle's Jewelry, in college I am taking a business class.  Although I started my Etsy site out of boredom/ as a hobby, I really learned from this that I want to really have my own business.  Reading this Intro to Business book is interesting, because I thought I taught myself alot, but I am realizing that there is ALOT to learn.

Otherwise, reopening of Peppy and Belle is going as planned.  30 more days!  I can't wait to open it back up, but don't want to open early, for I have ALOT on my plate already.

Hopefully I will update again before my grand reopening.  If anyone has any tips, please feel free to share them with me!

Went away for a while

So, I went away for a while.  Obviously.  But I do plan on being back soon, really soon.  My goal is to be back up and running by my Birthday (Feb 17) so keeping my fingers crossed!  I've missed my shop so much in the time I've been away.  Heres yo a new start to Peppy and Belles Jewelry!

Also, I will be looking for advertisement space.  Willing to trade a free link for a free link.  Also, I may be buying one or two spaces.  Let me know if your selling.  I sell hemp jewelry and supplies.   is the best way to reach me.
