Just checking in

I started this Blog then forgot about it.
Evidently, I would be only writing to myself- no one ever seems to read it. Or if they do, they don't ever leave a message.
Since I started this Blog I have lost a dear sister. She died on May1st. She was a Kidney Dialysis patient . She had been on Dialysis 3 times a week for the past 3 years. It was hard seeing her go through all the pain and the loss of a quality life. I miss her so very much.
I am busy with all my crafts that I sell on my 3 e-commerce sites---eBay, Etsy, and Ecrater.
They say a blog helps with promotion, but if no one ever visits it- I don't see how it can help much.


  1. Bettye,

    Sorry to hear about your sister. I myself am extremely close with mine, and that would tear me apart.

    On a lighter note, what other types of arts and crafts do you do other than the cups (which I love by the way). I read the post saying no one seems to read it, and wanted to let you know that I did!! lol

  2. Hey Crystal, I can't believe someone actually found my blog and left me a message.
    I created this thing the best I could and then just left it since I have no idea how to manage it. My sister said it is just a journal for me to write my thought and show my crafts- which is what I actually wanted to do.

    I do all kinds of arts and crafts. You can go to my Etsy Store- ( and see lots of things.
    Etsy is a handcrafted site. I love selling there. But we have to promote ourselves. That is one reason why I did this blog.

    I also sell on eBay, and (

    Do you have a blog? If so send me the link please. You can attach it to my blog if you wish. I would love to see yours. Maybe you can send me some pointers on making mine look a little less generic.
    Thanks again for your visit.
    Hope to hear from you again.

  3. You've been blog tagged! Check out my latest post for more information. I look forward to learning more about you.

  4. Just wanted to say I am sorry to hear about your sister. This must be a difficult time for you.

    I was blog-tagged along with you -- so this is what brought me here to your site. I know what you mean about writing to yourself since I hardly ever get comments on mine since I started in April. But I suppose as time goes by things will change.

    Good luck.

  5. I am so very sorry for your loss and pain. I think your working on your crafts and blogging will help you, perhaps you could write about something that your sister loved or enjoyed or would want for you.

  6. Just added you to my blog. I also wonder if anyone reads these. All I know is my family reads mine and I guess that should good enough. Sorry about your sister. Its terrible to lose a loved one.
    Put some pictures on your blog, I love to see what others are making and doing.

  7. so sorry for your loss. I truly believe that when people pass on they hover over us as guardian angels. You will have her with you forever. I'm sure she will come through in your creations.

    Be gentle with yourself! Take care, Jodi
