Lucille Ball Postage Stamp Rummikub Pendant

Every once in awhile I'll be at the post office and see a sheet of stamps I can't resist. The one that started this a couple of years ago was the Chinese New Year stamps. I'd already been buying Chinese New Year casino chips so why not this? I display the sheet on the front of a cigar box (another one of my semi-collections.)

Now that I'm making resin jewelry, it seems a natural match with my stamps. So first up is my Lucille Ball 34 cent stamp on a Rummikub tile. Check it out in our Etsy store HERE.

Out With The Old In With The New (Year)

First off, I don't do New Year's resolutions. If there is something in your life that needs to be resolved, do it right away. Do NOT wait for a New Year.

I have set my mind to getting back into the whole Etsybloggers swing of things. That means monthly blogs, the subject to be determined by the Etsybloggers. First one of the year:

1) Now that 2009 has come to a close, what will you remember most about last year?

2) Now that 2010 is here, what do you have planned/look forward to/hope to accomplish this year?

I don't know what I'll remember most about last year, memory has become fleeting. I know in the future I'll remember things but not be sure which year it happened.

The good stuff, I adopted AC. I saw Snowball, my sweet little kitty I had to leave behind when I left LA. It was fortunate too because '09 was also the year she died. I got into contact with Tom again, one of the people in my life I was closest too but lost touch with when I came to Las Vegas.

I came back to the strip after 2 years working in locals casinos. For the most part, tourists come to the casino to have fun, locals come to complain.

As far as what I want to accomplish this year? Again, I don't make these decisions by the year. I will continue to work on eating healthy, exercising, enjoying my crafts and my kitties. And one big one, it's on a note in my bathroom where I can see it everyday "Keep Your Mouth Shut."
