My second day blogging 2/27/2011

well my first blog didn't turn out so well, I didn't have one person look at it, so not sure why I am doing it a second it a second day but who knows I may gey a peeker.
I went and did lots of shopping yesterday got new valances for the kitchen and got them hung hung up curtains in my bedroom, and the bathroom took down the nasty blinds in those rooms down that were here wehn I moved in. now I just gotta find some cool shades for the living room and my grand duahgters room the inside of the house will be complete.
I went to a boutique type place yesterday got a very cool wicker rocker for my back porch for $15.00 now I'm looking around for a wicker table to put next to it. it just needs a little painting and it will be fantastic. I just love wicker outside furniture. I also have a metal glider that I used as a child, I remember sitting out on the proch with my granddad on it all the time, it just needs some paint and it will also be great can't wait to put it out in the back yard.
My daughter is here visiting her daughter, for the reason the visits haven't went very well lately. My grand daughter is mean to her mother in the sence she acts up very badley while she is here. I do not have that problem. That is another thing I need to figue out. I so hope today is a better day. I just want to lay around do some cross stitch and watch NASCAR.
I am hoping the person who has this old much love needed cabinet goes down on his price  by 5 bucks so I can buy it. I want to reburbish it. If so I will post a pic of the finished product.Now I gotta learn to use a electric sander, but I hear it isn't hard. lol  Hoping to do some things and resell them for some extra money since I got my hours lowered at work I need the extra cash. I would rather do some side jobs in my home so I can be home with my grand daughter instead of getting another outside job.
feel free to check out my sites www.youravon.com/bvan-riper and http://www.brendavr.etsy.com/ for some fantastic items.
 well thats the blog for today.
Have a Great day all

My first time Blogging 2/26/2011

well seems as though everyone is blogging these days, I really have no idea about the subject but thought hey I'm game. I really have no special skills to write about, I love to cross stitch, I love the show crimminal minds and the Hgtv shows like Cash and Cari and design on a dime. My dream is to open a second hand thrift store. I love going to these second hand stores and I love yard sales. I am a independent AVON rep.(www.youravon.com/bvan-riper)  I have 2 adult children a daughter 23 and a son 22. and a beautiful almost 5 year old red headed grand daughter. I live in Monroe, Mi where I was born and raised. I have lived in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Arizona.
ok so now what to blog about. I am a memeber of the moms business network group this is a group of very nice woman some who have made a successful home business for themselves some like me, who are trying to make a go at a home business. I am a single grandparent raising my grand daughter while working outside the home 25 hours a week.
She was born with clubbed feet has had many surgeries on her feet, wears orthodics in her shoes and braces at night, goes to the U of M every other month, and next tuesday starts physical therapy twice a week.
This is the reason I need a work at home business or my own business to be able to spend more time with her. The days are very busy for me.
My son and I do occasionally sells things on ebay and craigslist and this summer Iam hoping to get old cheap furnitiure refurbish it and resell it, I just a month ago moved from a apt to a house that I love , has a big back yard and a basement so will have a little room for refurbishing.
well going shopping for new curtains, so I will close for now please tell me what you think of my first time blog,
