In this blog I wish to share postcards from my collection with others, as there are many different catagories of postcards. I also will share what I am currently selling on Ebay. I like selling, buying and trading postcards. The Plus in the title is for the handcraft items I make and collect. Also for all the ephemera I collect.
Due to health issues I have been neglecting my blog and since I have started the New Year with Journaling this would also be a good place to write. While reading my emails some from friends, others from crafty and creative business people I get new ideas. Today an article about 2018 popped my interest. It said to pick a word that would be encouraging for the year. Well I was thinking of HEALTH, HEALTHY WELLNESS but decided to pick a phrase that was in one of our doctors reports. It was AGE RELATED. Everytime there is some problem, usually minor,we now say it is Age Related. I will be 76 and need to face Hip Replacement (maybe) and working on diet for Heitus Hernia.
But I pass the days with hand embroidery and now working with Essential Oils which feel good on my hips. I wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Not selling much on eBay but planning on using my boxes of ephemera in making JUNK JOURNALS
I am rather behind with blogging. It has been a summer with forest fires with evacuations. Then I started Physical Therapy as I learned from xrays that I have advanced osteoarthritis of the hips. It is in both hips and is quite painful. I will be seeing an Orthopedic specialist in a few months. But I still craft and go to sewing class and try to stay active.
I went out this morning to feed the cats, check the water bowls for all the visiting animals, then sat on the deck with a cup of coffee. Sewing class at the senior center was on my mind so I gathered my embroidery projects set off down the road to a wonderful gathering of sewists. When I came home I ate lunch and then napped. I now sit by the water cooler reading emails and checking my eBay Auctions. Several of my listings that are on mentioned on twitter have the hashtag #ChristmasinJuly. It is 97 outside not exactly December weather. But it does make for lovely mornings and after dinner evenings.
Won some covers and am waiting to receive them in the mail. I will now be researching Twin Bridges, Montana.
