Fleece Jacket low price size XL

Fleece Jacket Sweat Shirt women's 18/20 XL

Navy Blue with Red accents, zipper, rhinestone emblem, pockets in front.

NEW with Tags, retail price $18.99

I purchased these items from someone who makes them herself and I thought it was a steel!. I wore it this weekend and it is made from very sof fleece and looks fantastics. The rhinestone flower design on the front is an elegant touch. My neighbor just picked up one for herself and her daughter, and I just got an order for 2 more. I do recommend this fleece jacket with zipper sweatshirt in Navy Blue with Red trim.

Here is an auction I have for the item starting at 9.00! It retails for 18.99.

Great Quote I want to share

" God Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference ".

This is a great quote that was given to me to hang up by a very close co-worker with who I worked with for many years. She was a fantastic individual who was wise, gave excellent advise that helped many people at work deal with the stress we all go through. I miss her now that she retired and most of all I miss her wonderful quotes.

Great Quote I had to share

"God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot Change,the Courage to Change the things I can and the Wisdom to know the difference."

This is a great quote that was given to me by a very close co-worker of mine who knew the frustrations of the job that we both had. She tried to teach me to take things one day at time and know which battles to put aside. I really miss her now that she retired and I will miss her great wisdom and wonderful quotes that she shared with me that got me throught the most stressful days.

My liitle helpers

Starting a side business is pretty difficult especially when you are already working full time and have a family of 4 to take care of. My kids have taken a great interest in helping me sell my products and hopefully get the business going so that it will be easier to pay the bills. My older son is in middle school and loves photography. He has decided to help me with the picture taking and editing. My younger one is also very curious and has been asking how he can help.My husband mails the items out when I have to get to work before the Post Office opens. It is so rewarding when the family helps out. Making ends meet these days is very difficult and I want to be able to make a few extra money. With all the hard work and the family with me I am up for the challenge and am staying positive. I feel blessed!

Great Day

Today was great. Took the kids to the Halloween Walk near us and although it was freezing outside we had fun. Walk was a short one since the weather was not so great but the indoor activities at the nature center was fun.

Later stopped off a great new store and picked up some nice clothes will be selling a few of the great sweaters that I just think people will adore. Have never seen such soft fleece sweatshirts that this store has.

Stress and Burnout happens in all fields and business!

I read this great article today about people who have complete burnout from their job or business even when they are successful! How can having money and a great business in this economy cause people to be stressed. I would think that it would be the complete opposite. It appears that the article states that those individulas who are successful in their field become bored when they reach their goals. They have the thrill of achieving the dream and once that is scrathced off their list they tend to become stressed out.

Stress solutions:

It's important to manage your stress. People may use their addiction to work as a an excuse to avoid other things in their life such as family, friends, etc. We all need Social Support, Forgiving self and others, Relaxation Skills such as deep breathing and positive imagery as well as hobbies and taking care of yourself.

To help you if you feel burned out:



Learn new skills


Set new goals for yourself

Change your Behaviors

Remember, attaining a dream takes work. Emotional difficulties can be a sign that you need to change your behaviors to attain your dreams. Change is good!

Halloween activities in NYC

I am looking forward to some of the Halloween activities in the NY area. I will be going to the Halloween walk in Marine Park this Saturday, hopefull the rain will stay away :) This is a yearly tradition for my family we get dressed up and walk through a maze of fun, scares and activities at Marine Park in Brooklyn. I wouldnt recommend it for kids under 5 since there are a few masked volunteers jumping out of the bushes that may be too frightening for little kids.

Also, in Brooklyn there is the wonderful Verazzano Botanical Garden where you have the yearly costume contest for pets. Very cute and lots of fun.

In Long Island's Adventureland in a few weeks we will go trick or treating as well as spending the day riding the rides and having a blast! This too is a tradition and have been going there for almost 8 years!

Have a great day!
