Things have been a bit crazy

Been taking a little bit of a break. Things have been hectic. Finished a whole bunch of hats. I think I bit off more than I could chew since they caused a bit of stress.

I’ve been keeping myself busy with ChaCha, which by the way is hiring again. To sign up to become a guide, go to http://becomeaguide.chacha.com and use the email address delilahbrat@gmail.com when signing up.

It’s actually a cool job to have, answering text messages people send in. I love it because I learn a TON of interesting facts every day. It actually does pay, and you can work however many hours you want. Since I’m doing the stay-at-home-mom thing, I work a good amount of hours per week. Even doing a few questions here and there can give you a little extra money, even if it’s just to go out on the weekend without having to choose between that and the following week’s lunch.

I really recommend it, especially in this economy, where some people are either between jobs, been laid off, or just having a hard time finding work. It is good for extra money, or if you want to do it full time, it’s a great way to give yourself a little bit more income until you get back on your feet.

Help support the American Heart Associations Jump Rope for the heart.

My daughter’s school is participating in this program to raise funds for the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for the Heart. Her school will qualify for free physical education equipment based on what is raised, to get the kids more active and try to help cut down on childhood obesity.  I am very big on charities (when I put something up on Ebay, I choose to donate proceeds to depression and bipolar support, to raise awareness.  My biggest goal is to eventually participate in Habitat for Humanity), it’s very important to me, and I’m proud to get my daughter involved and interested in helping others, especially at her age. If you would like to make a donation, please visit: http://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=284661&lis=1&kntae284661=BEED648E7FCA4BF7BAE804644ACFE46F&supId=246556696 .

It would be greatly appreciated, as heart disease is the number one killer, and it’s important to be able to get as much information out there to people to try to prevent it. Not only that, but if her school can qualify for phys ed equipment that would be awesome, because the more active children are, the lower the risk of childhood obesity.

MORE HAT PICS COMING SOON!!!!! Working on a few things right now that my family wanted, so I’m going to wait until I finish that to take pictures of everything I have done so far.

I know it has been a while

A whole bunch has been going n- between a pipe freezing and bursting into our “living room” (it’s actually in the basement, but where we spend most of the time as livingrooms with hardwood floors and babies don’t mix).

So, we’ve been trying to get things organized and it has been crazy. I lost some yarn in the fiasco. I think they removed 100 gallons of water from the carpet (between using a special vacuum, a dehumidifier, and fans), this week they finally started putting the ceiling back together, and Wednesday, the carpet will be installed. Then all kinds of stress with be over.

I’m going through some of my yarns that did make it (not the yarns I’m using for my website, mind you) and putting some up on Ebay. So far I relisted the pretty princess hat http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=180325783119

Now, when I list, a percentage of the sales goes to a charity of my choice.  I have chosen to give 25% of the final sale prices to support Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance.

It is something near and dear to my heart, and I want to be able to help those who need the important support it takes to help cope and understand Bipolar disorder and depression.

I’ve decided on top of the hats I plan to sell on my site (once all this stress goes away, which should be soon), I will continue to sell single hats on Ebay to continue donating the proceeds of my sales.

I promise, I’ll be more active soon. It’s just been lots of things going on, that have just kept piling up.
