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!


  1. Happy Birthday! Have a super-duper day!

    Love Briony Katie

  2. Ahhh!! I didn't get to leave you a birthday comment! *sad face* I guess I'll just have to say... Happy Belated Birthday, Julia!!! I hope you had an amazing day. :)

    Oh my goodness... that e-book sounds amazing!! Great job on designing the cover.... it's SO pretty! :)

    Anyway, it was so good to hear from you. I really miss your updates, but I know you're quite busy. ;) Hope you're doing well, dear friend!

    ~ Much Love,
    Lindsay <3

  3. Hope you had a wonderful birthday and glad to see you posting again. I'm looking forward to stopping at your both at GHEA. I still wear my beautiful earrings that I bought last year!


  4. That is beautiful! I'm going to tell my friends about this one (and it would make a great gift for one of my sisters).

  5. Oh, how exciting Julia!! The cover is so beautiful. Great work!!

    Love you,

  6. Hey Julia! It was so great to see you today! I really hope that you start up blogging again soon. I miss your posts <3
