I'm back....

For those of you who follow my Cottage Blog, this is old news but it certainly bares repeating here.


After 27 years of public service employment, I have retired to a life of leisure extreme budgeting and the opportunity to do what I truly love...

C.R.E.A.T.E.

I know, know, lucky me.  And as if that wasn't enough, I just re-did my craft studio so it's all ready for me to start playing...er, working in there now.


I thought I'd share a few pictures of my creative mess today and share the finished project tomorrow.



Feel free to pinch me at any time!

I wish you a happy retirement. I am retired also, I know what you mean about running a tight budget. It's takes getting use to. You'll miss your co-workers more than the work. I did cry the 1st day, because I didn't have a job.lol. Smiles to you,Susie(She Junks)

I am so happy for you. That must feel amazing to be retired. I bet you will have a lot of time to make some pretty crafty things. :)

I wish you many days of creative fun (and I'll try not to be jealous).

Every time I reorganize my craft space, I can't find anything!

I also retired this year.. Originally to watch my grandson full time.. But they moved away.. Now I spend my time crafting.. I love it!! Although I really miss my daughter and grandson!
I have to say if I had to chose It would be watching my grandson hands down.. Well I do hope you enjoy your time.. Can't wait to see your creations..

Hugs, Linda
