The Journey Begins Anew!



Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
There are a lot of changes going on. I struggled for a long time to figure out what to do. I wanted a business that encompasses everything I do rather than have multiple businesses. I didn't want to deal with the taxes, nor the administration of a site for each endeavor I undertake.

Thus, The Write Buttons is born.

I'm a writer and a sewer.

I also dabble in music and have plans for that eventually.

Tiny Samurai isn't going away, it's just taking on a new form.

I've purchased my new domain name for 88 cents tonight!

I'm just waiting for it to flip to active.

One thing? I've been scared of the logistics involved in shipping items. Other than the name issue, I had been letting this hold me back.

Well, no more! It's time I just jump in and see where I end up.

On the writing front, I'm working on a short documentary. It's taking up a lot of my time right now, but it will be done soon. It's for Digi60, which takes place next month! It's the story of a BC indigenous woman who overcame alcoholism through roller derby after escaping abuse. I'm so happy to be part of this amazing project!

I also recently rewrote a resume for a client on a short deadline.

Sewing wise, I have a little project I'm finishing up at home involving a couch cover for a new-to-me leather loveseat I got for free. It has a little seam issue that has required tape to repair. As it's the winter months, I'm making a cover for it out of fleece. The pattern happens to be Spongebob. I was never all that into the show when I was younger, but now I find it quite funny. I also got a good deal on the fabric, which is predominately my favourite colour ;)

Once that is done, it's time to get rolling.

With gratitude,
Rae-Rae a.k.a The Tiny Samurai

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
