UNPLUG; GOOD THINGS HAPPEN!

Sometimes you really need to “un-plug” for a while. Haven’t done much posting lately, after the gem show I took two weeks off to see my grandsons for their 8th birthday!  And we worked on the new house in Florida; ripping up carpet and putting tile, cleaning, yard work – the usual. I brought my…

April Showers Bring New Beginnings!

April Showers Bring New Beginnings! As I sit here writing this, listening to the April showers outside my window, I can’t help but think how fast time goes by. The last time I wrote my newsletter in this room, there was snow on the ground and I was packing up and headed south! We spend…

Marching into my “new” self!

This winter was an awesome experience! I traveled all over Florida, making business connections, doing shows on the beach in the sunshine, and spending some of my time with family and friends. I will slowly be relocating my business, and the last few months have been the beginning steps. I also spent a lot of…
