A new artisan support group starting soon.

Hello Everyone,

Since moving to SLO I have met so many wonderful people!  A customer named Donna came in the store when I first started there.  She was talking with me about starting a support group for local artisans.  We each have knowledge we can share to help each other grow our businesses.  I thought it was great!  I was elected to lead this group...hhmmmm....not sure how that happened.  Hey, I'm up for it.  Can't wait to have our first meeting.

Also more news about my jewelry line.  I just picked up 2 more jewelry reps who want to rep my line.  Moving right along.  I sure can't wait until I am so busy making jewelry I need to hire help;)

I hope this finds everyone well,

A place to call home.

Hi Everyone,

God is GREAT!!!
I am now a featured artist on http://www.crushcrushcouture.com/category/DE.html how exciting!
I also have a great place to call home.  I will be moving in this coming Monday. YIPPEE!!!!!
It's been one heck of a journey to say the least.

I was teaching a stringing class to a very nice older woman last week.  She stopped by the shop on Tuesday to see about a wire wrap class.  I mentioned to her I was looking for a 2 bedroom to rent.  She said she was staying at her son's house but was moving out.  Her son's very good friend shares the house because he's in the middle of a divorce.  So she spoke with her son to see if he would allow Alicia and I to move in.  He said yes and the best part is it's only $700 a month all utilities included.  The house is only 3 years old and in a great community.  There is a swimming pool and clubhouse too.  I couldn't believe it...I guess I should know by now that God has a plan and I should stop worrying so much.

The other good news is Alicia was just hired for a full time job working in a new restaurant.  Oh and she already has a boyfriend.  He is Jennifer's (my boss) son Caleb (29) and he's 6'6" tall.  They are 2 peas in pod;), 2 hippy kids...so cute.

I am so excited about starting my new life here.  Now it's time to hit all the boutiques to see if they would like to carry my jewelry line. There a ton of them in a 50 mile radius from San Luis Obispo.  Everything is going to be o.k. Thank you God!

I hope this finds everyone well,
