Sad but Happy

I just got home from putting my 16 year old daughter on a plane to London, England!
She will be there for 2 days then off to France for 10 days and then to Italy for the final 5 days then returning home!
I am so happy she has the opportunity to do this but OH MY is this hard! Fortunately I know one of the other parents pretty well and have had almost 9 months to became acquainted with the other students and parents. But this is going to be very, very difficult!
I am left with my 12 year old son (who seems to need constant interaction) and my wonderful husband (who is having an even more difficult time letting his daughter go than I am!)
I will let you know how it goes. I have a feeling that the next 19 days will be like none other!

Another Step in Success

I know it has been a while since my last post - I am going to get better at this!
As you know, I knit purses, create unique pieces of jewelry and make glass lampwork beads. Well, I am fortunate to say that all three of those endeavors have been going quite well. As of today, (well, technically tomorrow since they are closed Mondays) I will be selling my lampwork beads out of a local bead shop!

They have been gracious enough to give me a case to display and sell my little creations. I am so excited.

There is so much more to do!!! It is amazing how BIG that case is!

I also will be doing a local gallery walk fair in a great small town around here so that should be fun and I have a couple orders for my freeform purses.

I think that God is looking out for me and keeping me occupied since our daughter leaves for Europe in less than a week and will be gone for almost 3 weeks! I am excited for her, but also a little apprehensive. I think it has something to do with control issues and that parent thing!

Well off I go and hope that all is well with everyone out there in bloggerland. I haven't even checked in with anyone else's blogs lately either. Barbra Joan was so sweet and sent me an email to check up on me. Bloggers are great!

Will post again soon!
