Let’s Change The World.

If it is possible for something to go wrong, or even impossible, it will go wrong. There’s just been some setbacks in getting my store up and running. But I suppose that it’s expected in the beginning. I know I get over excited and start my website and start promoting long before I should – so I hope that you don’t get too bored of waiting on me.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. I’ve gotten everything I need outside of more supplies and tools (which is very important). But I’m on a limited budget, unfortunately and sometimes I have to wait to get items that I need. But once I have my store running I will have money allocated for shipping etc. So there wont be any worries there.


I don’t know how I just found this out – but the store – Bamboo, Beads & Bling ( ) offers FREE workshops – and lots of them! There are almost THIRTY different workshops available. I’m going to check this out in more detail because I am so close to this store that I could be at every single one! *laughs* They will be sick of me. I need to see if you need money for supplies (which I would think you would – but you never know). Either way it’s really great! They are located in the heart of Victoria’s Chinatown (which is the oldest Chinatown in Canada) on Fisgard St.

Here is a list of the October Workshops! Maybe I’ll see you there!

  • 10/05/19 ( 10am – 12:30pm ) Knotty Class
  • 10/05/19 ( 1pm – 3pm ) Making Malas
  • 10/05/19 ( 3:30pm – 4:30pm ) Stretchy Bracelet
  • 10/19/19 ( 10am – 11:30am ) Intro To Earrings
  • 10/19/19 ( 12pm – 2pm ) Cascade Earrings
  • 10/19/19 ( 2:30pm – 4pm ) Herringbone Earrings
  • 10/26/19 (10am – 1pm ) Woven Bracelet
  • 10/26/19 ( 1:30pm – 4pm ) Advanced Earring Class

So as I said all things can and will go wrong. And I meant it. I got sick this past week. Just a cough and cold but because my lungs are still so scarred from when I had endocarditis – I’m having a hard time breathing or doing much of anything. So I’m just trying to relax and hopefully get over this sooner than later. It’s hard enough when I’m not sick. *laughs*

I was supposed to have tax returns and GST checks mailed to me, but they somehow were sent to an address from years ago, don’t ask me how. So I have been dealing with that as well. Gotta love government issues. Takes hours to get a hold of a person when you call in. Anyway these were allocated towards part of my business and so now that is another reason to fall behind. So once again I’m sorry that it’s taking forever. Some of it is my fault, some of it is beyond my control. But I’m working on fixing it all as we speak. And get better at the same time…

On another topic, does anyone know about the Extinction Rebellion? I know a lot of people don’t agree that climate change is a problem, but a man who works in my building who actually wrote a great song that I will post below, has been talking to me about this and went to one of their meetings so I guess that next week they are blocking the bridge by my house (again). I might go check it out this time.

Anyway here is the song he wrote for Greta Thunberg and Climate Change called “Let’s Change The World”.

Chris is a great guy and a great musician who has really found his place wanting to fight for climate change. That – I will support! Please subscribe to his YouTube Channel – Plastic Ocean and share his song with all of your friends, family etc.

That’s about all I have to say for now. I know I’m a little all over the place today – must be my cold. *laughs*

Stay Strong, Stay Safe.
