Family First....

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted...so sorry for that!  Life has been and continues to be a bit of a whirlwind.  I hope after the holidays it calms down because I need to catch up!  I normally don't share much about my personal life on here but I guess I feel I need to give you my excuse for not posting often and why the website doesn't have new product weekly which is the way I had hoped to have it. 

So my first priority before these things is taking care of my Mother, which I have been doing for a few years now.  But this year the amount of care she needed increased to everyday, all day so my priorities had to change.  I could no longer manage to keep the physical store open and now just try to have a few open houses a year.  I am happy that I had the website established as it is nice to still feed my creative side.  So I just get done what I can although I am not always satisfied with that, it's is just the way it has to be for now.  I was trying to add new product weekly but that has not been very easy to do lately so as my friend always says, It is what it is.  I know I will have no regrets later on in life for the sacrifices I make now even though some days are not always easy. 

Thank you to all of my local store customers for your continued support when I do open my doors for an open house or on a whim.  I always worry that no one will show up but you always do and with such nice comments which I appreciate.  And thank you to my web customers for finding my site in the big world of cyberspace.  I am always amazed how people have found the site and your nice comments as well.  I try to convey the same service and feeling online as I do in the actual brick and mortar store. 

I wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season filled with warmth and precious memories.

  1. You will NEVER EVER regret the days of taking care of your mom. My mom died 18 years ago at the age of 58. I took care of her for a year and one half. She had a nephrostomy tube that I changed the bandage on every night, even in the hospital...the nurses didn't want to "goof" up our system. Blessings to both of you!

    I just came across your business card and thought I would look you up! glad to see you are still creating :)
