Thrift Store Find, Writing, and all that Jazz

I've been really into up-cycling, re-purposing, and making handmade items. If you don't know or haven't checked out my Etsy site yet, please take a moment and visit. I've been working on handmade items on and off for the past year, but with working full-time, going to school, and having a family, I haven't had a chance to create new items.
 
 Original: Purple / Re-purposed: Gold & Black

I've been really into the 1920s lately. When I saw this mirror, I just had to have it!

What do you think of my thrift store find? 
 
Update on Books: 
While it's been a crazy roller-coaster ride, I did finish the children's book I've been working on - which will be released the fall of this year, just in time for Halloween. I've also started writing a relationship book and I'm hoping to have that complete in a few months (fingers crossed)!

What about the THIRD book of the Goddess of Night Series?

I'll be honest, I have been staring at the blank pages for the third book in my Goddess of Night Series, Transcend - at least I have a title, right? The past few years...oh my gosh...years...have been so crazy with moving, work, the kids extra-curricular activities and trying to squeeze in date nights. Since school is done - for now, and that's another topic I'll write about later - and I've gotten use to everyone's crazy schedule, I can now say that I've gotten my own schedule back on track. I even have a 2 year monthly calendar (specifically for writing) where I write down exactly what I need to do each day, to make sure I reach my deadlines!
 
I've decided that 2015 is the year to get serious and have fun. I have a good, no great, feeling about it. Just call me optimistic. I take my son, Ray, to acting class twice a week. It's about a 40 minute drive from where we live, so during those drives, I'll listen to some of my favorite songs. The one's that inspire me to write. I'm definitely getting back in zone and I'm very excited about that. 
 
Stay tuned for my next post in a few days!
 
Ta-ta,
Ley
