Summer Heat, New Projects, Beginnings...

After weeks of cooler than normal weather, the thermostat hit 101 yesterday.  Those familiar with MS (multiple sclerosis) know that heat is our enemy.  I have to be very careful about my body core temperature, so summer is the season for hibernating indoors. Spring never seems to last long enough for me.

While I'm waiting for October, I've decided to keep busy with some indoor projects I've been putting off.  I started a blog for my art and sales.  It's called Moonflower Cottage, same name as my Etsy site.  I do not have any items for sale on either site at this time.  These are works in progress, but I am hoping to have them actively running within two months.

I'll be selling homemade cards, reclaimed items that I put my own spin on, possibly some original art, and some vintage items I've decided to part with.  I'll post a note here at Little Grey Gardens when I have added items to sell at the other sites.

This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, I just hadn't found the energy or motivation to get started.  It's a new beginning for me.

Good for you, Nita Jo - I'm happy you're sounding better. I have another friend with MS and know how the hot weather does for her.

Take care!!

What a wonderful venture! I would like to do some creating/selling too later on. It's on my to-do list! So any pointers you can give would be helpful. Can't wait to see what you offer!
