It’s Been A While

It’s been a while since my last blog post. I mean, not a really long time, but longer than I had planned. 
I’ll try not to let it happen again but I’m sure I will.

I have trouble writing blog post when things are not comfortable in the world around me. I like to blog positive, happy or fun post. 
Oh, I have a lot to say about the things going on in the world today but I try to stay away from political topics or bad news. We get enough of that on TV. 

I also had a pretty busy week last week so I was never in a quiet frame to write a post. 
As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have been crocheting “ear savers”. They are these little bands that fit around the back of your head with a button on each end. Medical workers use them to hold their mask on without having to put the masks around their ears. They have been wearing mask so much that their ears are sore. These are a big relief to them. 

There is business in my town called “Morgans Shoes and Bootery’. They also are a big supplier of professional scrubs. This is where most medical workers and others buy their uniform scrubs. This means they are probably in need for ear savers too. My handmade ear savers are a big hit and they sell out quick. They have been ordering 50 at time from me. I can have them ready usually within 3 days. 

I also had a couple of job interviews last week. Both interviews went well and they seemed to like me. 
One already denied me and I am currently waiting back from the other. My search continues. 
With all the craziness going on right now, a lot of businesses have put a freeze on hiring. Hopefully things will get better. I’m tired of being home all the time. However, I love all the quality time I get to have with my husband. 


  1. Those are really cool. Oh I have so much to say about our country’s mess but I too shall keep my mouth shut. Good luck with your job search, the right thing will come your way. Hugs!

  2. I don't use the mask that goes around my ears, but IF I DID I would definitely want the ear savers. The mask just feels very uncomfortable hooked behind my ears. BTW it is good to see the alert for your blog. We have been thinking of you guys and hope your time at the beach was/is good.

  3. It's great that you are making the ear savers for the medical field. I like how you made the card for them.

  4. Sounds like a great idea for those sore ears.

  5. These crocheted ear savers are so cute!

  6. Catching up with you in the wee hours of this morning! The ear savers are amazing! You ROCK!
