New Beginnings!

This time last year I was just beginning Chemo. I was scared and intrigued at the same time. What can I say, I am curious by nature.
I knew it would not be fun, I knew I would be really sick and weak, but I did not believe this would be the end of me!
 I feel like I have a new lease on life! I feel like I need to make up for the year I missed! I have put myself into my work full force and I am loving it! My husband not so much because the house is a mess. Oh well! That's life with kids! No reason he can't do a little cleaning around here if he doesn't like it ;)
 I had an amazing show this weekend! Sold a ton of stuff including the Fleur De Lis necklace just above. I sold a lot of my breast cancer pieces, all purchased by one terrific lady! I was also the winner of the best dressed table! I will get the pics up this week, but if you can't wait you can see them on my Facebook page. I am hoping to find the time to photograph and list some things today, but with the kids it's hard to have a steady schedule. I try, but things get bumped a lot! I have last week's shipping to do and I have a ton of stuff to list! My new website should be ready soon and I need to get some awesome pics to put up so I can start using it!
 I am hoping to hear from Shopbevel about these earrings. Hoping they were one of the winners for the Gypsy Soul challenge. That would be so awesome! I am planning two other submissions to them this week as well as some other stuff! So much to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

love your work..
one thing about going through something like you did this last year..it puts things into perspective..i'm sure being a house cleaner was not something you aspired to in your dreams..running house is a team effort..everyone needs to get on board, and you need to do things that make you happy.
