JULY??? TIME FLIES FASTER EVERY YEAR!

Boy is that true! I can't believe this is July of 2019 already!! In less than three months I will have been living in Florida for FIVE YEARS!!! I still love it, a LOT has happened in those five years, but I still think this is where I'm supposed to be. I've learned a lot…

ROLLING THROUGH NOVEMBER

ROLLING THROUGH NOVEMBER… Rolling like a freight train! November is almost over already! I don't know about you, but I'll barely have time to gulp down my turkey, before I'm off to Tallahassee to start my December shows! Sometimes it really does seem as though life rolls on too fast, we say it a lot,…

SEPTEMBER- A RACE TO THE FINISH LINE!

That's sure what it feels like! All of a sudden you realize, there's only four more weeks left to summer break! In other words; season is just around the corner and I don't have enough inventory!!! It went by so fast! I'm not sure how, but between the visiting, the beach days, boating, going out…

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!…

JANUARY; WE BEGIN AGAIN!!!

And so we do, we begin a new year, another chapter, a new adventure! No one knows what this year holds- isn't that exciting?!! Anything is possible, and that's the way to look at life- glass half full, ya know. I am looking forward to my fourth season (third full season) of shows in Florida! I…

DECEMBER – MAKING WISHES COME TRUE!!!

Did your wishes come true this year? Well mine have, mostly anyway! Last month we said November was a good time to give thanks and be grateful for all we have, and for all the wishes that have come true. It's important to acknowledge our accomplishments and our blessings. This month, December, can sometimes be about…

NOVEMBER; FINDING AN “ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE”

NOVEMBER; FINDING AN "ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE!" November brings the start of our holiday season, and that gets us thinking about family, friends, life, and all things emotional. It can be a really rough time of the year for some. I always loved the holidays, and I never really understood how it could make you sad;…

AUGUST; A TIME TO CREATE AND PLAY!

I have really been having a good time! Most days I am happily in my workshop/office; cutting, polishing, wire wrapping, or working on the computer. I have cut up some nice materials. The creative side of me is rockin'! I have been wire wrapping some special pieces, including doublets! These are two stones wrapped into…

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…

NOVEMBER; FALL COLORS ARE DIFFERENT IN FLORIDA!

So, exactly how is it different? Well, we do have a change of season; the weather changes from boiling and wet to damn perfect! (yes I am rubbing it in!) People start planting the few things that didn't want to grow in the hot, hot, hot summer. The tides in the canals can get really low,…
