JUNE; TIME TO BREATHE

AHHH, just breathe slowly in and out- long, deep, slow breaths. Get centered, focus. Now we can RELAX! Well, not really, lol. June is the start of my summer, slow-down time, so yes- I do get to relax more. There's not a chaotic, hectic schedule, so I have time for meditation, yoga, going to the…

OCTOBER BRINGS EXCITING CHANGE!

I am continuing to implement more exciting changes in my newsletter and in my business! I was always so bad with change- but  the only constant IS change! So I have learned to embrace it! Face the dragon-  when you embrace it, things work out; its the resisting that holds you back. So I mentioned last…

AUGUST, TIME FOR SOME R & R

In August so many people decide to go on vacation, and this year I am one of them! I will be taking this month off from any markets or shows. I will probably still make some inventory, but not as much as last month or next month! I am going to be driving up to CT!…

JULY; I MUST BE A REAL FLORIDIAN, BECAUSE I AM LOVING IT!!!

I must admit, I never thought I would say I love summer in Florida, but boy do I!!! Don't get me wrong; I LOVE my job- the fast paced, hustle and bustle of season is exhilarating, and exhausting! But I love it, the people, the interaction, the crazy schedule, the fabulous sales- it's ALL GOOD!…

JUNE; THE SERENITY OF SUMMER

June does start our serene, summer months in SWFL- I've talked about this before. Most people are gone now, just the locals remain and the occasional tourist or visitor. The farmers markets that I have been frequenting close for season, very few remain open all year. So this means I have plenty of quality time…

DECEMBER – MAKING WISHES COME TRUE!!!

Did your wishes come true this year? Well mine have, mostly anyway!

It's important to acknowledge our accomplishments and our blessings. This month, December, can sometimes be about…

JUNE – CHANGE OVER TO SUMMERTIME!

JUNE – CHANGE OVER TO SUMMERTIME! June brings yet another "change of season", we transition into the quieter months; our real "down" time. The days get longer, and the afternoons really heat up! June is the beginning of our rainy season, so each afternoon (hopefully after 3pm) we can see some pretty wild thunderstorms roll…

APRIL IS A REAL GEM!

  APRIL IS A REAL GEM! April has a birthstone of a DIAMOND! How can you not LOVE a month that revolves around diamonds? Remember, diamonds are a girl's best friend! I have diamond impregnated grinding wheels and diamond sintered saw blades, so I like to tell people I don't wear my diamonds, I wear them…
