Updated blog with FREE homeschool links

I just updated my blog with free homeschool links. I went through more than 10 years of links and deleted any links that were dead or sold or had iffy pop-ups.  I don't have as many resources as I used to have, but they are all good, and they still pretty much cover anything you will need from Kindergarten through college prep.

The name of the blog is

Free Home Education for African Americans  

Don't get mad though... anyone can use it... It is just now targeted toward the new growth in population of black homeschoolers... as a black homeschool veteran, I feel like I can attend to the needs of this new homeschool demographic and I named my blog appropriately so people know where to see help.


Store spaces and websites

Recently I found out that one of my vintage booths (my first and original one) is closing due to a new owner, and possible supermarket in the spot.  Fortunately, I had already diversified and am happy to announce that I am not only in an antiques store, but I very nice design center. 

With that said: 

Furnishings and home accessories found at:
Our Antigue and vintage store booths HER can be found in the following locations
Ebay Store for Art, costumes, and related items: http://www.ebay.com/usr/ahermitt
Etsy store for costume and related items: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ahermitt



It is time for a re-mix or rebranding of sorts.

I have neglected this, my main blog and tried combining my main blog and my homeschooling blog, since I was done homeschooling. That has been awkward.  I will be separating the personal and homeschooling stuff again as I am focusing on my homeschool book over there, and managing all of my business stuff over here, and... I dunno.  I am working it out. But in doing all that, I have taken my eye off the homeschooling stuff when it seems most sorely needed.

Here you will basically find my starter page which will reach out the all the other items... sounds separate, but in my brain, it will all be more cohesive.

til next time.


January 1, 2017

Well.  I have been very busy this year. Some of the things that happened are:

  • Getting to spend a good portion of the last year and the year before in NYC with my husband (job related- which was also an excellent opportunity to work on my book)
  • Adding to my costuming business (with my daughter)
  • Getting my vintage booth up and going
  • Co-chair on the board of a community theatre.

It's amazing how much you can find yourself doing when you don't have "a job".

I used to dismiss people who were into more than one business... I thought it meant they lacked focus and could not find success in one thing.  Now I know better.  To do well in this current economy, diversifying is key.

A whole year has passed and a lot of work has transpired

I have spent the past year working on my homeschooling book, which is still in progress.  I have also costumed a half dozen shows in the last 16 months.  Most recently, I have opened a store (vintage booth at a bigger store) to sell my vintage furniture and accessory finds, many of which I will be painting.  Art lives!

Another exciting thing that happened this year is that hubby's job relocated us to NYC (officially).  We got an apartment, but kept our ATL house.  He's mostly in NY and I'm mostly in ATL, but we manage to spend 10 days a month together.  There's a season for everything, and now is the season for this adventure.

So, surely you can see why I haven't been blogging... I haven't been writing for websites because they pretty much stopped paying.  The most recent call for writers I responded to wanted to pay like $4.00 per article to start.. puffftttt...  slave labor.

BTW, Here is a photo of my 'store'
