2012 was full of change – big change. In life, we anticipate certain events as we grow older; but I doubt that we completely comprehend their impact until they actually happen. It has taken some time for me to adjust to a life that is different from what it has been for the nine years that I’ve been here. The upside of it all is that I can now envision a life that is somewhat different than what had become my normal. And, that’s a good thing. If you follow me, you know I don’t really do well with change – I think the universe knows it too, so it decided to give me to a huge challenge in 2012! All right, all right – I now understand that change is all part of life and in so doing, I am learning to go with the flow of things - at least a bit more than before.
This year, I am looking forward to lots of new jewelry coming out of the studio. For years, rocks, gemstones and magical glass have fueled me; and, these days, their energy seems to be far stronger than ever. I am taking that as a good thing – the gifts of Mother Nature are the things that excite me and bring me peace at the same time. It has been and continues to be a pure joy to share this energy with all of you over the years. With that in mind, I am sending thoughts for all things good in 2013 to all of you out there. This year, more than ever before, I am committed to saying “yes” in my life while embracing glorious new possibilities and adventures. I do hope you’ll join me in that thinking. We’ll have a great time together, won’t we?
