Opening weekend...

I have to come to realize what an undertaking this is...I've had apathy from my audience..I have had complete amazement and excitement. I'm very certain my ladder to climb has many rungs...but it will be a long time before I stop. Peace and Love.

A Creative Opus...written without edit..simple and true

I am finished with what I began about a month and a half ago. Tomorrow is opening day of our store. What do I hope to accomplish and why did I even begin such a big undertaking?? Because it should be done. This is not just a craft supply/ hippie shop. I am attempting to make an artistic meeting place in rural PA. I want to give everyone a chance to express themselves. To meet and share ideas. Granted it is still a business at heart..I think I have stated on more than one occasion. "I am full of ideas not money" but the shop is truly what people make of it. I am living in the unknown but I have to believe that even if just for awhile some art or music is sold and people leave with a smile on their face then this time in my life has been completely worth it. To be quite honest this began when we came into a reasonable amount of money -not a fortune- but enough. Granted we could have gotten a big tv or some other unnecessary luxury that would sit in our home and make us falsely content with ourselves...however we took a chance and made something not just for us but for everyone willing to participate. So I hope anyone who reads this and is able stops tomorrow at 1106 Philadelphia Ave, Northern Cambria, PA... and says hello and joins me in the endless creative possibilities...Much Peace and Respect

Crunch Day!!!!

Well- I have one more day before the store opens. I know what I need to do and when I need to do it. One more table to set and my creative dinner will be ready. I hope to see you there. Also here is a link to wonderful charity. I am setting up a donation box in the store today!! Keep the arts alive for everyone!!!!! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=129394200425659&ref=mf

Laundry Day

Today I am catching up on laundry..no big deal you may think but it is when you have laundry for four people that his been ignored for more than a few days. So as I listen to the not so gentle purr of my washing machine I have decided to come up with a list of my favorite music.......How exciting for us all.
Amanda Palmer -- Hoo-ray for her and The Dresden Dolls!! You dont have to like it but I certainly do.....Here's to artists that create for the sake of creating...
Radiohead...can do no wrong..we trekked to a different state..had sucky lawn seats.. and it was still one of the best concerts I have ever seen.
Nine Inch Nails..my two favorites--..
Tori Amos is a goddess...
Even though I question the current state of Smashing Pumpkins and Billy..they still helped to define me in my youth....Gish and Siamese Drean were like my own little secrets until Mellon Collie..then all the silly children jumped on that bandwagon...bitter-yes.
David Bowie can kick all your asses..and then charge ya for it...
..Tool, A perfect Circle, Marilyn Manson, REM, Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, White Stripes, I listen to everything..its hard to sit and gather them all together...--If life were like a TOOL video-- You would probably be on LSD Talking Heads..that is all have to say..All right the clean clothes have started to pile in my basket. Time to fold. I hope I have given you something new or reminded you of an old favorite. Peace to you and I am out.

Soapy Sales and such

I am attemting to clear out my soap supply for the winter..I wont be out at craft shows during the cold months, so I am trying to get rid of my soap now...anyway I have it all on my myspace site but the paypal carts I have set up do not seem to want to work correctly, any advice on paypal would be helpful because it is being a pain in my rear...if you just want to buy some soap check out www.myspace.com/margaretkcreations It is all first come-first served...at this point it is all incredibly cheap and if my pay-pal carts aren't working..then just drop me a line and we will work something out. Anyway I have wasted most of my day trying to figure it out, so I am removing myself from the computer and finding something constructive to do...sigh...
