Our daughter went to Florida in June. She was accepted at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale but then the financial crisis hit and because she did not qualify for any financial assistance school has been put on hold at least for now. She just got offered her dream job though working for a high end retail store in West Palm Beach - she starts in a little over a week as Assistant Fashion Director! More on this later, after she starts the job and can give me all the details.
A special thank you is order to my husband, Jim, for allowing me this time to adjust and find my way in our new world. This is the first time in our married life (and we will have been married 24 years this May) that we have not had kids at home. We are empty nesters for the first time! What an adjustment that has been for us. We are enjoying rediscovering each other and focusing on our life together. What a joy it has been. We miss Jackie terribly but are so proud of her accomplishments and know that she would not have had those opportunities if she had stayed here in rural Teller County!
Sales from my etsy store have been slow lately but I pray that if I throw myself into creating lots of beautiful fibers the sales will follow. I have been thinking that regular sales and specials might help to increase sales volume. So please keep checking my store for sales and specials - I'm slashing prices on some handspun yarns to make room for more yarns and fibers. Please remember that all your purchases help to keep our animals fed and well cared for and every purchase is appreciated more than you can imagine! Thank you all for your support!
I need a photo in this post - I like to look at photos and I think others do, too. So here is my red tri miniature Australian Shredder...I mean Shepherd...Annie, as a puppy and last weekend, doing her daily rounds of the ranch. She helps daily with the chores and thoroughly enjoys her job.
