Etsy will be showcasing my shop, this weekend.
Sunday, September 25th, 2011.
To celebrate, this beautiful flower hair clip as been marked down to only $9.00.
For a limited time only.
You can pick one up here.
For the last couple of years I have been building a business. It all started when one of our daughters wore a hair piece I had made, especially for her.
A personal friend of ours, Martino Cartier, noticed it. He generously invited me to set up my products in both of his salons.
My handmade products began to sell immediately.
I went on to start this blog, and then married it together with an Etsy shop.
Then I realize, I am right where I am suppose to be! I don't wish for anything different.
Celebrate with me, if you so choose!
Pick up a daisy, or two, for your loved ones! Here
"Why a red daisy?", you might ask.
Well, red is the color of Love.

Has anyone else had a week full of "trying to get back into the routine" mishaps???
Back to school.
Back to daily routine.
Back to early dinner time.
Back to regular bed time.
(but not for mom & dad)
Hmmmm, looking forward to the weekend. Fall is in the air here in New Jersey, and inspiration is flowing........
Thinking about making our porch a living space. I like this one!
What a pretty approach to a stylish light source....... love it!
Thinking about how to decorate our front door for the season. This one is festive.
Thinking also about baking an apple pie.............we'll see!
We'll see how the weekend ends up, but it is good to have goals right?
What are you planning for the weekend? Does the Fall weather make you want to spend more time outside?

"Will any of this matter in 10 years?"
The conversation was average. Two women talked about family, life, children, and going back to school details. It was an every day, normal moment.
Then a golden nugget of truth hit like a boulder.
She said, "Sometimes I have to ask myself if any of this will matter in 10 years." She described how the practice of asking that question helped her weed through the messy details, and focus on what is really important.
Drama....... you know the kind :o)
Lost library books.
There are things that can upset the day, the schedule, the life, so much that any peace we might have had goes right out the window. Why? Our future is not affected by them.
Following your dream.
Conquering a battle.
Overcoming a difficulty.
Victory in conflict.
Rising above circumstances.
Holding your peace in life.
These things matter! They matter today, and they are monumental in paving the road to our future, both one, ten, and fifty years from now!
Thanks for the wisdom, Mom!
