Relearning Etsy and Twitter

Faith - a faux glass mosaic

Just what the title of this post says, that is what I am doing this week. My husband has managed to fix all that was making my computer act wonky. Much if it was my fault.. you see, whenever a box would pop up asking me to update whatever new file needed updating.. like.. anti-virus protection.. I would click "no" because I lack patience. ha. This, you see.. is not what you need to be doing in order to keep your computer virus-free. So, my computer was very, very sick, to say the least.

It caused me to abort my facebook page, curb my email use, etc. I just hated to get on my computer. But, now folks, I am back. I have gotten into the habit of doing without my computer, that now I don't even think about it, but I hope to get back into the swing of things.

I am going to spend some time today and visit your blogs, see what is new in your lives. I also created a twitter account. If you are on twitter, please follow me at
KJPM Now, I just need to remember how to get a twitter button.

Oh, and last but not least - I finally opened my Etsy Store - Yesterday! Now, I have to re-learn how to put my Etsy shop on my side bar... I literally forgot how to do everything, I have been out of the game for so long! That Faith piece above was my last listing last night. I hope to list new items every Monday...I think what I am going to do is have a to-do list for everyday.. so, I don't overwhelm myself or feel like I am not doing enough.. or doing too much.. Did that make sense?
Balance.. that is what I am aiming for!

Take Care, folks... see you soon!

Welcome back! I have that same impatience problem. I will try to take the time to update tonight just to be safe not sorry. Love the new piece. Hope you and the girls have been enjoying the spring.

It's great to see you back on Etsy! I just hearted your store! It looks beautiful! I've really slowed down on Twitter. Just too many other things to try to keep up on.

Oh, that happened to me too. Worse, I had to spend to have it fixed. Glad to know that your husband fixed it.

Have a great day!

I'm SO glad to hear from you! I've missed you, too!! My blogging (at least my personal blogs) has been waning recently as well. I have been blogging a TON for the SC Etsy Street Team, though...which keeps me busy. I'm THRILLED to hear you have your shop re-opened...I'm going there now! How are you and the family?

Hi Kristin!

'Faith' is one of my favourite words and you captured it beautifully in the mosaic!!

I am going to check out your new store now!

Love your FAITH art work. I know what you mean about forgetting since it has been some time. I have to do things all the time to remember. I'm sure it will all come back to you.

I really like your art pieces in the shop. I am partial to the florals and that tree painting. I'm thinking those over... :)

Welcome back to the internet! My laptop died a sudden death last year, even though I was clicking "yes" to all those virus update messages.

Here's hoping your computer stays healthy... and I love the mosaics you're doing! So cute! :-)
