Life is like a box of choclates

I never really understood the line from Forrest Gump: "Life is like a box of choclates.  You never know what you are going to get."  Moslty due to the fact that there is usually a card inside that tells you what you are exactly going to get.   Read the card.

But lately I am finding that I kind of understand.  Things haven't been working the way I want them to dispite reading the card (i.e. following the directions, or doing what I am suposed to).  For instance, blogger is not quite working properly lately, there is a looming postal strike in Canada which would greatly impact the Etsy business, the metal work and pastel food colouring aren't quite working well. 

But hey, why get wrapped up in sour lemons ..lets add some sugar and get to making lemonade.  I am trying puzzles for the Etsy store.  I honestly can't wait!  I was hoping to have more colours to work with but it seems for now that I'll have green, yellow, orange, red, purple and blue:

Those are the only colours that I can reliably create.  I think they look awesome so lets work with that.  I also need to expand the teethers.   Hopefully I'll have some good news to post!


  1. Chocolate and lemonade sound good!

  2. Ha, I've always thought the same thing about that quote. "But they tell you exactly what you're going to get!"

    I love those colors! Your new products sound fun.
