i don't even know where to begin....

Well that there was a nice little blog hiatus eh? Sorry about that!! The last 2 weeks have been kind of a  whirlwind and time kept escaping me each day not leaving much time for blogging.  Last week, we had to jet down to Connecticut to attend the funeral of a close friend. A beautiful and loving friend who lost a very hard very long battle with ALS. She was so very young, a mere 45 years young. 2 beautiful children, 6th and 8th graders - Both are the strongest and most respectful kids I've ever known.  Their Mom will live on in each of them and we are all so grateful for that.

This past weekend, I went down to visit my parents since we'll be heading back to CT for Thanksgiving next month- Joe's 25th high school reunion is that weekend as well.  It was nice to see my parents. My father was excited to talk to me about his new pick up truck that he got recently, and also his very first iPhone.  The same model, the 5s, that I have, so there was lots of app swapping and teach and learning of things like FaceTime.  :)

My mom and I had a nice relaxing afternoon and evening, watched Twister, and ate lots of gelato in our jammies. My Grandpa was doing well, at 87 years old, still as sarcastic and funny, and full of life and always cracking jokes. LOVE that!

Now I'm back and getting back into the swing of things. Prepping for next months Open House, so that's why you're seeing a LOT of jewelry land in my stores the last few weeks.  This week I'm prepping to do another webinar, How to Set up an Etsy Jewelry store, for Jewelry Making Daily. If you have missed previous live webinars, this one is scheduled for Thursday Oct 30,  at 1pm est.  Sign up HERE.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
