Everything Changes

So I bet you're all wondering, "What happened to the job?"

Frankly, so am I. 

I was told on Wednesday that I was too tall for cheesemaking and the owner of the dairy didn't want to take risks with my back.  I was allowed to finish out the week and that was that.


In the meantime, I have closed my shop for good - a decision I'm going to stick with. 

We're trying to sell the building, Alan has a full-time job, in addition to selling bread at the Farmers Market (more often that will be my task for Saturday mornings) and I'm still actively looking for work.

The second-hand business was fun while it lasted, but it's time to move on.

I will continue with the blogging, though!

In fact, I've just been signed on as a contributing editor over at Vintage Indie (thank you Gabreial!).  I'll be posting DIY projects a couple times a month.  I'll re-issue a few oldies but goodies from the archives here, but I will also be sending out as many original projects as I can. I'll let you know when my posts appear.

Thanks for all your congratulations and kind comments.  I really appreciated them.  And feel just a little silly that it didn't work out.

Ah, well, that job just did not have your name on it--something better will come to pass! Glad you are still blogging and how nice to be a contributing editor (is HGTV seeing this?? Do I see a show in your future!!)

Sorry you can't be a cheesemaker and I am sure that milk maid is also out of the question due to your height, but their loss is our gain. Welcome back and congrats on the Vintage Indie gig.

Thanks you two!

And Tara - I would also take a book deal... ;)
