The skinny end of the ties I made into headbands. The 2 buttons are so the headband can be adjusted and stays better on your head.
I wont be going back to work until July 24. Trying to stay busy. Here are some hats that I have added some umph too.
Boy how time has flown by. I have been working on crowns made from the big end of mens ties. Here is are a few pictures of the process and the end results.
Staying busy during quarantine. I turned several ties I had on hand into headbands. Below are a few of the ties. Picture 1 the ties are cut. Pictures 2, 3 and 4 are the bands I sewed at one end. Picture 5 the finished product.

Several weeks ago I finished clearing out and organizing my art studio. Here are some pictures.
March I was put on furlough and of course it was jarring but I have accomplished alot around my home. I have also learned a few things.
1. From now on I am going to buy 2 of alot of things that I had stopped when I was thinking of a more simple/ minimalist life. 2 or 4 toilet paper packages, Kleenex, wipes etc.
2. I experimented with cooking and I really love avocados.
3. I need to become a better gardener.
4. Stock piling nonperishable food isnt a bad idea.
5. I enjoy being home.
I hope everyone is safe and healthy.
Today I was informed that Thursday will be my last day at work until May.
I am trying to stay positive even though my emotions have run the gamut since receiving the news.
I have made and written out a game plan so this time off will be used wisely and it will also help me not panic and fall into a depression. My plan includes my normal daily meditation and exercise to a new to do list.
And I know I am not the only one facing this. I have been thru worse and survived. We all will be stronger, not just America but the whole world.
Stay strong and send out positive vibes everyone.
In trying to live a more simple and healthy life I have been eating better. I am also following more of how Europeans eat, how Americans use to eat and how I ate when I was growing up. Simple but well rounded meal that included a meat, vegetable and a nod to the French cheese and always dessert!
