I haven't been good at updating my blog in the past, or even doing anything interesting with it. I have so many ideas and projects running around in my brain it is hard to focus on any one of them. I want to have a cool blog. I want to contribute to the blogosphere in positive way. I want to connect with other people who think like me. Now that I know I am not alone, I am not a hoarder, or a nut because I am obsessed with upcycling. I have been doing it since before there was a name for it. I just liked taking what someone would consider trash, and making it into something beautiful, or maybe useful, or both. I still do.
In my other life I am a pharmacy technician. Kinda funny, because there is NOTHING creative about pharmacy. It is all cut and dry, black and white, no grey areas. Routine. So very opposite of the ceativity I want to express, and have wanted to express. It pays the bills. I got a raise when I changed jobs. I had worked for one company for many years, mostly as a floater, which I enjoyed because it afforded me some flexibility, since I also have another life as a caregiver for my best friend who lives with me. Then things started to change.the flexibility went away, wages were frozen, no more mileage. Slowly leaving started to creep into my mind. A hard thought after 28 years, most of my adult life. But I was no longer happy, and I felt I was no longer appreciated by them. So I left, and went to work for a temp agency, which I LOVE!! I have gotten nothing but compliments, a raise, mileage, and much better working conditions.
I am so much happier, I am glad I left, I needed to. I needed to let go of the past and move forward to my much happier and more creative future. I hope to share my journey to creative living here. Hopefully we can have fun on the way.
Oh, and did I mention, I sew barefoot...
