A House, a Tiny-home, and a Trailer

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I have thought about this a lot, like everyone. I would love a house that my family or friends could live in or stay in if they were in town. I would love to have my own Tiny home for myself for my permanent residence. Finally, I would like a trailer hitch to a 6-cylinder SUV for nationwide travel. I think that would make me completely content.

Let’s start with the house. I have friends and family that travel, and some that can’t afford to live alone. I would love to have at least two temporary spaces for the travelers. One could be an Airbnb and the other just family. I would like four rooms and a full basement. The basement could have a private door for that rental. One of the other four would be the spare room for guests. I could let one relative live rent-free with the condition of upkeep on Airbnb.

The Tiny-home would be on the land and I could stay there. I would have a crafting space/office/dining space. I would want a shower, patio, and space for a guest to sleep. I may have a shed for crafting to but only room for one. I would want a bike trail nearby for outdoor rides. I also want a space to sell my crafts, like a lemonade stand.

Now we are going to talk about the trailer. I could use the trailer instead of the tiny home but I want to travel and give to people around the country who are in need. I want all the same amenities as the tiny-home but more stable storage. I will need a rack for my bike and the pop-out patio. I hope there is room for at least one more person. I want this to feel like a home away from home.

I think to some this may sound a bit greedy but if I only had the trailer for me, the other two could go to family members so they will never be without a place to stay. I remember being unhoused but I don’t think that it would be asking for too much to take care of my family with the money I won and provide housing for them. I hope this prompts you to think outside of the box.

Elevated Denver

One of my current roles is as an Advisory Board Member to Elevated Denver, a new nonprofit in Denver dedicated to finding new solutions to our homelessness crisis. We are focused on humanizing the issue and testing new solutions driven by diverse stakeholders and our homeless neighbors. We are working on Season 2 of the podcast, where you can hear from our unhoused neighbors and local experts, as well as hear about bright spots in the system of support. We are also doing research to understand how clients engage with and move through the system, what needs are and are not being met, and where they are getting stuck. Together these will help inform new solutions. The end goal is a more effective and responsive system that meets peoples’ needs so they can move into stable housing more efficiently.  

I believe in this work and I hope you will consider supporting Elevated Denver for Colorado Gives Day: https://www.coloradogives.org/story/Elevateden.

Sheila Miller

Sheila was one of the kindest, most caring, and loving people that I know. She was at the top of her game as a crafter and was inspiring. She would give without thought to whoever asked. Her spirit and what she gave to this world should be instilled in everyone.

Sheila loved a clean house. She loved Scubby Doo as her best friend and he loved her back. Sheila cleaned her house on binges. She would spend 2-3 days non-stop cleaning until she couldn’t clean anymore. Then she would rest for a few days. She loved to cook for others, and we enjoyed some of her Menudo and tamales. She had that neighborhood mother mentality. If she was cooking, creating, or whatever, you were going to be a part of it.

Scubby was her protector. Although he loved women of all shapes and sizes, he would get mad and bark at you, if you even looked like you were taking her away. If possible he would smell you from head to toe. He was an awesome companion for her and they belonged together.

As a friend, we would talk on messenger for hours at a time. She befriended my family, especially my mom, site unseen. My mom grabbed a shelf to keep all the wonderful things that Sheila made for her and welcomed more. I was inspired to boost my craft skills to be almost as good as her but I don’t think that will happen. I was blessed to receive gifts from her and be someone that she loved. I will miss her kindness and her love as my friend and sister.

May she rest in peace.

Juneteenth Festival

Here are a couple of the things I sold at the festival. Most of them are under my products page.

Ella Blast

This is an 8×11 print of an actual art piece that was collage, acrylic, and stitched. This is a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. I think of her voice being strong enough to blast into space for everyone to enjoy.

$15.00

Leaf Hat Lady Card

This is a digital sketch printed on a card. The card is 4×6. It comes with an envelope.

$5.00

I learned a lot from this event. You need to keep cash whether you want it or not. Always carry business cards. Also, set up a clear inventory sheet to keep track of sales. Get a better organizing way to display your items. Have a separate storage container for your items. A co-artist suggestion, “freeze a bottle of water the night before”, I thought that was helpful too. Then remember that everyone has their own selling style.

The Change of Life

I just turned 51. I now have hypertension. I need a single purpose to take me through the end of my years. I am a creator. I like to write, do art, and sewing. I have been helping people over the years with technology, resources, and basic comprehension of things that they need to do to keep their life going smoothly. I have went through substance use conditions and behavioral health struggles. Now that I am working on internal and external healing. What should I do at this milestone?

I have been trying to de service by giving back to the homeless community and sitting on boards to help with conditions that others struggle with. I have provided my story as a testament and still want to share my continuous struggle with others to let them know that they can get better. I have 4 years of clean time in my recovery and constantly focus on my behavioral health to keep myself balanced. I have gotten trained to work as a person with lived experienced and I am not sure if this is still the direction I need to continue with.

I have been apart of two different creative venues. I am a member of a community art studio. I am following steps to improve my art adventures and can become a professional artist on this line activities. I really would like to be seen as a creative and be respected as a worthy person for people to my art. I enjoy the challenges that I have been over coming. This could be an awesome career to pursue.

When I started my recovery and abstinence of drug use, I joined a writing group for people who have hard times. This group offered a safe space and allowed me to remove all the remorse and hurt into a form of writing. Then I started writing my stories, learning new writing styles, and making friends. Ultimately, I took a few extra workshops and found that I could write pretty good. I have published some poems and stories. I have a few stories that I would like to turn into a book. I could work on a writing career.

I had bought a sewing machine and I was sewing pouches, mending clothes, and making bowl cozies. My machine broke and so I decided to purchase a new one. I got in touch with my dad and decided to go visit him. He was 88 and I wanted closure before it was to late to show I loved him. The following 6 months we talked a couple of times a week. Some days were just fixing his TV over and over again. I bought him things that he said he asked his niece for but didn’t get. I also sewed him things because I had become better at sewing. The pandemic hit and changed everything. He was sick on Monday and I got a call on Saturday from a cousin saying that he was gone. He had gotten a respiratory illness on Wednesday, Pneumonia on Friday, then he was gone, incinerated and I was hurt. I started grieve but my friends mom had died, an old friend’s dad had just died first, then, more deaths followed. I was making masks, helping people grieve and I got overwhelmed. Sewing started soothing me. I made more masks for friends and family. Mending blankets, pants, and curtains for friends. I also decided that I was going to start up-cycling. I can now do so basic clothing patterns, bag/purse patterns, and quilts. I sew for therapy mostly but I would like to sell some of my items too. I would like to have a work from home biz with my creative items.

So I am using this blog like a diary, an outlet of my hopes and dreams. I am sharing things that interest me and new stuff that I have learned. I like sharing my struggles, adventures, and my life.
