Thank You for the Birthday Wishes!

Awwww. I am blown away by all the sweet comments I got on the Birthday post my mom put on here! Thank you all so much! It really made my day to read them. I wish I could reply to each one individually but I unfortunately am so short on free time right now that I can't. So I'm issuing a corporate "THANKS!!" to everyone, and it comes from the bottom of my heart! :)

Well, I was hoping to hide for the rest of my days, filled with guilt for not posting since before Thanksgiving... but Mom blew my cover and hijacked my blog, so now I have to say something. (Ha-ha!) :)

Well, next month (The first weekend in May) will find me up in Atlanta at the Georgia Home Educators Association (GHEA) Convention, running a booth selling my handcrafted jewelry. As you may well imagine, I've been as busy as a bee... no, busier than that... :D ... making jewelry for my booth. What came as a surprise to me was the sudden and unforeseen projects that jumped into first place in the middle of my work schedule.
I thought about keeping it a surprise until they were all done... but I just have to tell you! So here goes... I'm writing jewelry instruction e-Books! One on how to create earrings, one for bracelets, and one about necklaces! I'll even give you a sneak peek at the cover for the first one...

What do you think? Isn't it adorable? I took the photo myself and designed the whole thing. (and the inside is even better!!) :)

So that's all for now. I probably will not be able to post again until after the convention, and to let you know when my new website is up and running to sell the e-Books from. Until then, ta-ta-for-now!

It's a Big Day and We Need Your Help!!

This is Julia's mom, Mrs. Gloria, and I need your help!

This Sunday, April 10th is Julia's birthday!!

She is turning 20!

Please leave a comment or email her (if you have her address) and wish her a very happy birthday. 

She is feeling rather down about turning 20 so I need your help to cheer her up.  She said she feels old but she is really just beginning a wonderful life.  Any encouraging, uplifting words would be greatly appreciated. 

We want to make this a special event and hearing from her friends will mean so much to Julia.

You can leave comments or email starting now through Sunday, April 10th.

Yes, I hacked her blog but good parents have the passwords!!  :)

Blessings and thank you!!
Mrs. Gloria for Julia's family
