New Experiences

This past weekend I did a 3 day show at the state fairgrounds.  I have been extremely stressed about this since I have never done something of this size before.  Well, I am happy to report that it went very well.  Some things could have been done better, and you always learn from every experience but I am happy with the results.

Best of all, I have met some awesome people.  I also got to add to my jewelry collection, I purchased two pieces from other artists.  Yes, I not only like to make it but love to buy and wear it!

The next few months I will be focusing on creating a new website look and listing more online.  I welcome any and all suggestions to make this better!  I am also going to be trying to get a good system in place to incorporate all aspects of my day, kids, work, house, etc, so when I have some good tips or ideas I will share!

Hope you all have a good week!

It's Monday, it's the first day back to the normal routine after spring break, and it's my birthday.  I have been reflecting alot today and the changes I have made,  the things I want to do, and the way I role model for my kids.  Last week, we had a shooting in our school system.  The parents are angry, I understand that, but there is a contingent that are trying to get the principal fired.  They say she knew and didn't do anything about it.  So far, everything is hearsay, but what I know to be fact is the child that did the shooting was expelled.  He was kicked out of the school.  What more could she have done?  What exactly do people want these days? 

Everyday, we have opportunities to talk to our children, friends, etc...  Everyday, I enforce the thoughts that your actions are your actions to my kids, whether it be hanging up their clothes or breaking something in the house, or lying to their parents.  Yes, I get the but she ......, or I did it because........, and I always stop and say, you are the only one responsible for your actions, period.

So, I will leave you with this thought, treat each day as it is your last, treat every person the way you would like to be treated and always take ownership of your actions!
