Making Jewelry

           I enjoy making different types of jewelry. I love making earrings that dangle. Putting different types of beads together. I love the different colors. I don't pay attention to if it's off the wall or not. People have different taste so even if I don't like it to much someone out there does. At one point I didn't want to stop making silver earrings to make gold. But I did and I'm glad. Because I like the ones I have made.

            Donna's Little Angel Shop

       I have some jewelry in my shop and much more to come. I have made over three hundred pairs of earrings. I will be adding as soon as I get good pitchers. Please feel free to stop by anytime and take a look around. Most of my earrings are light so it will not pull on your ears. I do have a few that will and they will say so. I have silver as well as gold. I have necklaces and bracelets as well.

RC cars and Trucks

          Ok when grown men say they are going to play with their RCs. You think, "Grow up." But I have played with them. They are faster then the small child ones. To learn how to work them can take time just like any thing else. I have seen my boyfriend drive his gas powered truck off my one storie house. Back when I still lived there.

           Gas powered verses battery powered I'm on the fence about that. I had a  battery powered one and could that baby go. It was faster then the gas powered one. But I got mine from Hobby Town USA in Henrico,Va. That is were I got a different body for mine. Dave painted it for me and did upgrades as well. They fix the cars rite there in the store. But if you get a battery powered RC don't forget to get an extra battery. You don't want to have to wait for it to charge.

         Unlike the kids cheap ones these trucks and cars can take alot of hits and crashes. You can drive these over any survice. But don't take it in the water. If you are going to do that get one you can take in the water. Some people just can't wait to get out there and run them.

Helping Single Motherhood Group for Easter

His Frist Easter.
           Are you a single mother? This group is made up of newly single mothers learning to parent alone. I know first hand it is not an easy job. These women are still going through the shock of their kids fathers leaving them. Easter is coming vary soon. Suddenly Easter isn't going to be fun with no Easter baskets or Easter eggs. Easter is meant for kids to have fun. Look for eggs.

            I am trying to help this group of women give their kids a good Easter day. I am donating half of my income from Donna's Little Angel Shop. We would like to have a pick nick and Easter egg hunt for the kids at a park and if we can get enough donations get the kids Easter baskets. I for one would like to take a little pressure off these women.

            My little girl was turning five years old and my water get turned off. I had to take all my change and the little bit of money I had saved for her bike for her birthday. I was tense and upset at work. My boss wanted to know what was wrong but I was so upset I would burst into tears instead. He sent me home from work two hours early. I cried all the way home and at that time I walked. When I walked into the circle at the same time my friends dad was getting home. He ask me what was wrong. I told him. I couldn't get her her bike. He handed me $60.00 and told him witch three yards he wanted me to cut and he say I could do it any over the next weekend. I went that night and got her bike.  It took a little kindness from a gruffy old man who didn't like kids much.

Sick of hearing about hard times?


             So am I. I am tired of living through hard times. People can't find jobs. People who want to work can't find anything. I know someone who goes to work late everyday. He gets off early almost everyday. Somethings he doesn't even go to work at all. Me? I did have a job that I had to be their at six in the morning and still get off at 4 or 5 o'clock. I loved it. I was so mad that I got moved down to night shift. I enjoy working doing the day and having my night hours open.

               I do have a few shops online where I sell stuff I make. I look forward to sells. But I can't live off what I make. You always hear how people started a business out of there own homes. How did they find people to buy there product? I have twitter, facebook, myspace, and a whole bunch of ning sites. I do enjoy making stuff.

              I am sure I will find a good job soon. I am a hard worker. I am good with people. I have management skills. But in todays economy you have to know people. When you see a building going up check back often. Get your application in first thing. When you ask if they are hiring make sure you get an answer. Don't waste your time if they are accepting applications. Most of all stay positive. If they say no but thanks for appling. Has hard as it is smile, say thank you, and walk away. I know that is the hardest thing to do. But it's not the end of the world you will find something.
