I'm baaaack❣️❣️❣️ 2020 Let's Do This 🥰

I'm Angela. Many know me as #NJTomboy  #TomboyAroundTown or #OffBeatAng I think my life is ordinary. However, my mind? Not so much. I love to #peoplewatch #placewatch #thingwatch and #naturewatch About a year ago, December 2018, I started a journey and shared verbally with friends. Because my mind conjures up things at wild times; day or night, I started sharing on social media. That way I'm not waking people up. I use to share with my Mom, all times of day and night. Since her passing, I realized I was left with these roaming thoughts, and no real ways to release them....but that's neither here or there.

Hop on over to my IG page @tomboyaroundtown There I'll share many photos of what I've been up to, recently. As soon as I'm re-aclimated to this page, I'll start bloggin again as well. So much has happened. So.... Let's begin❣️❣️❣️


Shining The Glitter Light On Crafting's Sweetheart Cathie Fillian

This is my friend, Cathie Fillian:

Cathie is 1/2 of the Dynamic Super Crafting Duo: Cathie & Steve:

Cathie & Steve spent 4+ years developing & creating this AH-Mazing Plaid Product: Hot Glue Helpers

Hot Glue Helpers became an instant success due to the hard work, dedication, and sassy marketing skills of Cathie & Steve & Plaid Products:

This is AdTech. They know Cathie. In fact they had a presence on the show Cathie & Steve Produced: Craft Wars!

As you can see AdTech's Product that they introduced on FaceBook is/was scheduled to be released Spring 2013. Can you see a resemblance? I can.

I implore you to support my friend Cathie, & Stevie's Plaid Product...not AdTech. I know things like this happen every day, but we, consumers, must take a stand.

Thank You.

That Girl Ang

Update: I wrote this 2/20/13....never published it. smh again. Sorry Cathy & Steve.

L is for LATELY. It's been a LONG time.... I shouldn't have left you...

It's been quite a while since I last post. I must apologize. I've been so very busy with the I had a severe case of creative block! Seriously, I just couldn't sit down long enough to get the inspirational juices flowing. I've since forced myself through... Hopefully, I'll have lots to post in the near future...but for now, I will leave you with a pictorial of some of the things I have created or encountered over the past year...

Fall 2010, I traveled to Minnesota to the Junk Bonanza. It was absolutely amazing. My dream/goal is to one day create an event like that here on the east coast... I know it will take time. But, trust, it is a indeed a work in process.

My daughter, the Tomboy Princess, has grown up and become quite the bracelet maker. I've taken her to craft/fleamarket affairs where she has stolen the show.

Because of my creative block...I've been dealing with vintage items...on a really small scale. The economy is bad and folks aren't buying...but they are great prices. To feel that creative void, I've been curbside shopping...and on occasion, thrifting. Lord knows I don't need anymore stuff...but I'd hate to see it go to the landfills. From time to time, I'll post some items here...or on the Usable Art Blog.

I've been secretly... planning a trip to Paris to go flemarketing. Well this is another one of those dreams/goals... Maybe one day, I can host trips myself.... however, I don't see that happening for a while.

Finally, I have an idea for a TV show and a book... they are in the very beginning stages... quite frankly, I don't even know how to begin... so, I just started writing in my journal.... I will keep you posted here... perhaps may ask questions as I need guidance and or directions.

Oh, I also have something else in the wraps...can't share now... to early.. but I'm so psyched about the possibilities. *fingers crossed*

Update: I wrote this 12/22/11 and never posted it.🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏿‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️
