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…

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!…

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…

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…

JULY IS ROCKIN’ IN THE WORKSHOP!!!!!

July is jumpin' and the workshop is a rockin'! It may be hot outside, but my shop is nice and cool! I am truly in my "happy place"! It feels great to finally be working on all those projects and ideas that have been swirling around in my head for so long! There's  no stopping…

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…

FEBRUARY; LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

Did I really just say February? Wow, how time flies! Well, we are mid-winter and mid-season here in Florida, and things are rockin'! The weather has been a bit selfish, with terrible winds, and way more rain than we should get this time of year! But I guess we can't complain, after all, we don't…

SEPTEMBER IS FULL OF ACTIVITY!

Did you know September has more craft fairs than any other month? I know my schedule is so full of different activities; I don’t know if I am coming or going! Work, personal, social, physical – you name it and it’s on the calendar for September! I am excited to tell you all that I…
