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,…

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…

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…

FEBRUARY IS ALL ABOUT LOVE!!

FEBRUARY IS ALL ABOUT LOVE!!! And I am LOVING IT!!! This month represents VALENTINES DAY, and thoughts of love are every where! So naturally I am in high gear wire wrapping heart shaped stones I cut over the summer months. Guys are out shopping for their gals, and visa versa. Some people say it is…

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…

MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!

 MAY; SEASONS CHANGE AGAIN!  Well, here spring is not the only season change, May starts our "down time". Things get a little quieter, a little slower, and a lot hotter! I still have four markets a week for May, but that's instead of 5 or 6. The snowbirds have all gone home, so traffic is…

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…
