Whew! Just got done with paperwork backed up to the first of March. Why do I let it go so long! Probably because it's not my favorite thing to do, but it does feel good to have a clean desk - at home anyway. I have a day off from the regular job today, which is nice. I woke up this morning with thoughts of all I wanted to get done, and thanking God that I have a home to do it all in, unlike so many people, especially in Japan right now. My heart really goes out to those people. Please see my jewelry website at http://www.bzoriginals.Etsy.com as 10% of all sales this weekend is going to the good people of Japan. Wish I could do more, but... remember that paperwork I was just talking about?
I took today off to catch up on so many things I need to do at home. I awoke and my mind started clicking away at my list, and then, I thought about what the people in Japan would be doing today and all at once, all I have to get done isn't that important. Like so many people, I watch what is going on overseas daily. My heart goes out to them time and time and again. Such a series of tragedies for one country to endure. And while I sit in my warm home, many there are crammed into shelters, don't know about their loved ones, or have no where to go at all. While I have been through some pretty tough times myself, and I know and believe that those times are what makes us a better person, it is still not something that I would wish on anyone at all... of any race or religion. So, in honor of Japan, today and through this weekend, 10% of all sales from my shop shall go to the people in Japan. Hopefully someday I will be in a position to do far more. So please visit my shop on Etsy and let me know that you care too.

At any rate, I started a blog for my original Etsy site Odyssey Creations back in 2009 and never did anything with it. I think it scared me. Too much public knowledge. But I think I am okay with sharing some information and would like to meet more people with the same kind of interest. So I posted on my Odyssey Creations blog tonight too http://www.OdysseyCreations.BlogSpot.com, actually probably a more personal note. But I hope you enjoy thoughts, my creations and if you want to comment, or leave a note, I'd love to hear from you!
