Balance with Buckeye's

Yes, you read right. Balance with buckeye's. A catchy phrase if you ask me. I intend on disappearing to my living room with hot tea and a pile of buckeye's as big as my stomach can take.

If you have never had buckeye's do make sure to add them to your holiday eating list. Chocolate and peanut butter never tasted so good. So, how does this topic get into a blog written by a jewelry designer? I think in my other life I may have been sweets taster.

Balance is so important, especially with the upcoming holidays. Hustle and bustle about but remember to do it with balance...and buckeye's. In my travels to our local library I keep picking up books on balance and I never seem to find time to read them. Something about a toddler in the house that sometimes doesn't nap that keeps me so busy I forget about the books.

Speaking of toddlers, my little one needs his monkey that is getting dried in the dryer. So, off I go to deliver a favorite bedtime friend. Blessings to you all and I hope you have had a Thanksgiving to be thankful for. Remember to look ahead with a heart filled with optimism.

Wow! I hear squealing...better run!!

News!! New Site Design!!

Elation! I have been working once again with up and coming web designer Melinda H. and we are very near putting the finishing touches on my website.

I can't say that zencart has been my most favorite thing to work with. We have considered at times ditching the whole site and starting fresh but alas, we may not have to. Simplicity is key. Black, grey, white, gradients, slide show and more....I think we may have just found the answer to dressing up a template.

Trying to think outside of the box when your working in boxes, literally...well, it's a challenge. I am admittedly not a coder, so please everyone a round of applause and a big pat on the back to Melinda for her patience!

I am still taking new pictures and resizing so the site is faster and the pictures are cleaner looking. I hope you all take a moment to peek in and send me an email with suggestions or comments.
