My Name Change

I hope this does not confuse all my friends, but I decided to change my blog name.  I think my new name tells a little more about me and I can also talk about tatting plus music.  I don't think my other name told you much about me--we all have thoughts, right?  :)   I had some creative juices flowing yesterday and made this little muslin gift bag.  I trimmed it in vintage laces and made my own flower and tatted center.  I needed something new to add to my Etsy, so we'll see how everyone likes it.  

My next project is to work on an angel for Alzheimer's.  I want to be able to contribute to the Alzheimer's Association and I can give part of the sale of the angel to them.  So, that's another idea that has to be developed.  I am always trying to create and learn.

Don't Know What To Do Next

You know, there are so many options and directions to go in every day, aren't they?  Sometimes, I feel very scatterbrained because I don't know what to do next.  I can't believe that when I was young, I was bored sometimes.  What is "bored"?  I don't even know that word anymore.  Here I am working on this blog, but I should be getting ready for work, working on my crafts for my upcoming craft show, cleaning my house (now that is at the bottom of my "to do" list).  It is really hard for me to concentrate on one thing at a time.  Do you all feel this way, too?  I sure hope so, because I need company.

This past week the assisted living home where I work was featured on a local lifestyle show every day of the week, and I had to be on there two of the days.  I was really stressed out about that.  One day, I played the keyboards for our "Elmcroft Jazz Trio"and the other day I talked about "Crafts for Seniors."  They both went well, but still it is live TV.  No pre-recorded segments.

If you want to see the segments, just copy and paste the following link, go to "Shows" and then to "3 Plus You", and then search the videos on the left hand side for "Elmcroft Jazz Trio" and "Crafts For Seniors."  I especially like the craft one because two of our residents that I really love joined me on there.  They are so special.
