IT’S FEBRUARY! Spring is just around the corner!

One month closer to warm sunshine, blue skies, and beautiful flowers everywhere!
I am SOOOOO ready!
Who’s with me???


Soooo, you may have noticed, I ducked out for a few days… Nope, I didn’t lose my blogging vibe again BUT… I did get another vibe going…
I’ve decided that I’m definitely going to sell my handmade crafts or if I’m being all fancy-schmancy, my artisan creations. I’ve lined up my testers/models for honest reviews/feedback and I’ve secured my Etsy name, which of course, no brainer here, Magical Mystical Mimi. Don’t go there just yet. It’s empty. I’m working on my inventory but when I’ve got things headed that way you’ll be the first to know. I’m SO excited!

Two words:  SHAMELESS SELF- PROMOTION. Ha!


I set myself up on a schedule because I will be making a variety of things so something different for each day of the week.
Tuesdays are for Christmas projects and today’s project is Christmas ornaments. I made quite a few last year for family and friends and I sold a couple of sets so I thought I would continue with those.

This set was one of the favorites, especially for the littles. They loved singing the Rudolph song while hanging the ornaments on the tree.
Rudolph’s nose is more glittery than shiny but no one seemed to mind.
So tonight I’m working on another set just a little bit different.
Here’s the exciting progress at the moment. Of course, when they’re finished I’ll update.


I’ve been watching that crazy weather going on out east and thinking of you bloggers tucked away in that little corner of the country. Holy smokes! I hope you’ve all remained safe n’ sound! From the sound of those winds out there you needed sandbags tied to your waists! Geesh. Here’s to Fuxatawney Phil NOT seeing his shadow!

I hope everyone has been staying healthy and far away from that Covid ho, Rona. She just really needs to find herself another corner!

Oh! And to my football fans out there! Holy shit! Who saw the Chiefs going down??? NOT ME but hey, kudos to the Bengals. I think this Superbowl is going to be one heck of a game, and the half-time show with Eminem and Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar? Holy hell. It’s my, “you can take the girl outta’ Detroit but you can’t take Detroit outta’ the girl” moment fo’ sho.

In other football news, in other football news?? I’ve never written so much about football in my life! Anyway. Raise your hand if you think Tom Brady has really retired from football??? I think this is another I’m going to retire for a moment then I’ll come out of retirement for a couple of billion dollars in a few years. 

Okay. I’m out. So much left to do before I give in to the call of my comfy bed.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –


Be kind ~ Be thankful ~ Be loving
Be you!

WEDNESDAY CRAFTINGHalloween

MEANWHILE….

So apparently I just like to break all of those “build your audience, build your followers” build a fucking bear rules of blogging. However, as most of you know. I’m not nor have I ever been, a rule follower. I follow the law and anything baking that smells like it should go directly onto my fat ass.

I’ll keep this post short so you don’t end up muddling thru a shitty, everyday version of  War & Peace. But hey! How ’bout this handbag made from a War and Peace book?! I love it.
No big mystery as to why I’ve been away. Sometimes life is just meh.

♦The highlight of my week thus far has been driving in snow, rain and whipping winds to arrive early at my dental appt. and being told AFTER AN HOUR of sitting there that they’ve overbooked. Ugh. I rescheduled.

♦No idea what’s happening with the Cohen confessions. Don’t care.

♦In the craft corner, its been all about crochet.

♦In the weather dept. it’s just nutso! A little bit of everything.

♦HULU pick of the week – Manifest. – Great show. Always keeps me on the edge of my seat.

♦Finished 2 books, Gone Girl and The Giver. Currently reading, The Lightworker’s Source (again.) Need to update my GoodReads acct.

♦Anybody else having issues with Facebook because mine is acting really wonky.
That’s it for this rainy day post. What’s happening in your corners of the world? Raise your hand if you’re ready for spring!

OH SNAP! – #9

As you may have guessed, I’ve been gone for a bit.
I had a minor hurts like a son-of-a-bitch surgery and “Blake & Miranda” graciously allowed me to recoup at their place.
It was a wonderful mini vacay filled with amazing people, great food, homeschooling from hell and lots of love and laughter.
Omg, this just makes me laugh so much…
All in all, I’d say the mini vacay was…
Happy Monday, folks!
For those of you in the deep freeze and snow in the east, be safe and stay warm!
For everyone else, none of you get to bitch about your weather unless it’s as extreme or beyond extreme, as the weather in the east.

I won’t pretend to know all of the ins and outs of the government shut down.
I will simply say that I am grateful it is over and that my brother and his family and other families like his will now be receiving back pay and paychecks once again.

Endless thanks to those who don’t get paid enough as it is but continued to keep us safe despite no income.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 6:45am
Temp – 27 degrees F/highs in the 40’s today
Mood – Pretty good for someone who’s been awake since 3am
Bitch, bitch, bitch – That crazy weather in Michigan! 

Best thing – Knowing my family is safe and warm back in the mitten.
Be well.
