Leaving for the 2010 GHEA convention!

Hi Readers!

My family and I are packed and ready for our departure tomorrow afternoon. We're going to the 2010 Georgia Home Educators Association convention in Atlanta! I am SO excited. This trip will be a lot of fun for my family, as we're staying in a hotel up there for the duration of the convention. In a suite. With indoor pool. *oh yeah*. :D

The primary reason we are going is because we are running booth 105 in the exhibit hall! I am selling my handcrafted fine glass and swarovski crystal jewelry, and my two brothers Mark and Steven are selling their padded, duct tape swords, spears, battle axes, and a completely enthralling e-book with instructions on how to make each item! Woohoo! We are so excited. The jewelry takes up most of the booth, but the boys will have a square table in the corner. Mama and the boys and I created some eye-catching fabric signs to hang on the wall behind us. The boys' is brown, with duct tape letters saying "WARFARE BY DUCT TAPE" and mine is a light pink with darker pink fabric letters saying "Jewels by Julia". I will be taking my camera and hope to post pictures of the booth from the hotel room. :D So check back for that!

But before I sign off, I have one plea. Could you please pray for us? We hope that our merchandise will sell very well, because it would be such a blessing for our family, and all the hard work we've put into this effort will be worth it. :) Thank you.



  1. I will most assuredly be praying for your trip and that you will have excellent business! :D I hope you have a blessed and fun time together with your family my dear friend! :D

    Love you so travels! :D

  2. Hey Julia! I'll look forward to seeing you there on Saturday. I have school to do on Friday, so I can't come then. I hope everything goes well for you! :)

  7. I will be praying for you. I know what it is to work hard and wonder if it will bw worth it. I hope that there are a lot of people who what to buy from you. Maybe, if I publish my book soon, I will come and sell it at the convention next year next to you :)

  9. It was great to meet you at the GHEA Convention! I love my new earrings and when I went to the county fair today people were asking me where I got them. Hope you get some extra business! God bless you!

    P.S." My younger brother is REALLY enjoying your brothers' how-to book on duct tape weapons. He has made nearly half a dozen of everything in it except the helmets!"

  10. Very uplifting blog. Love your sweet posts & amazing music. Never lose your sweetness; work to keep it all your life. Do not let this world or other people and their issues cause you to lose any of your light. It's a purposeful journey to go this direction, but so worthy. Love & blessings back to you sweetheart!!
