Busy day today...went to the gym and went up 10 lbs. in weight training! Yay! I will look like Holly Hunter on "Saving Grace" television show before I know It! I have been working out at my local gym for a year after cracking my 7th bone! I was diagnosed with osteoporosis about 7 years ago and pretty much ignored it except for taking magnisium/calcium tablets daily...I learned another way to control it is by lifting weights... so I joined the gym. I have gone in the past and I really do enjoy going and lifting weights so it was not a hardship for me. But when I saw how Holly's arms were so well defined and frankly buffed I said "I want to look like that!" She is only a few years younger than me and if she can do can I!

I also closed one of my etsy shops...Cootiequeen and combined my vintage/retro merchandise with my handcrafted goodies. Running two shops was too much for me and frankly confusing for my customers. Being a libra, I just couldn't decide what I wanted to call my shop...therefore ending up with two names and two shops. I did decide to call my business...junkstylediva for my online shop and when I sell at flea markets and eventually a brick and mortar shop. I will tag my handcrafted goodies Ingebirds...that way customers know what is my handmade item and what is made by someone else...but that is a bit down the road. But being a libra I could change my mind tomorrow!

Tonight I meet with some other local crafters/artists at Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Chico. We are the etsy Chico Team so look for us under that tag name if you want to buy locally and you live in the Northern California area. It's our first meeting and I am looking forward to it. Hopefully we can brainstorm and come up with new ways to advertise our creations. I will keep you posted. Meanwhile these photos are some of the items I added to my etsy shop.

I pump iron too, and you're right, you're never too old to start.
