2014, Bringing in the New Year!

2014

As the year ends I try to recap on the events that passed by all to quickly.  And if it hasn’t been a year of computer failure I get to add photos.  It’s funny how yesterday’s portraits are what remind us today of what flew by.

January started off with my first showing at Dallas Market and the outpour of support as usual was amazing!  In February I started seeing my first book on shelves in Hobby Lobby and Barnes & Noble!  March I sold a house flip and bought a sweet piece of Texas property next to Round Top to start building a dream home.  (That will be another few months from now by the way).  I also bought a new house to flip in Smithville and will be showcasing the mess of pictures of before and afters in my next post!  With the new house, came a dilapidated shed that I was able to restore and create a new studio space in my own backyard! I survived Round Top twice and was blessed, blessed, blessed!  I hosted my first few women’s ministry events and learned about myself and how to serve others.  We’ve made it to June now and I got to get on the road with my little sister and explore as we made it up to the Amazing Old Glory Antiques Fair!  I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful people that entered my life and the beautiful Holly Kuhn.  And to boot all the amazing customers that stood in line to buy my book at the book signing.  Unfortunately, on the way home we lost the water pump in the truck and made the trip an adventure as we explored Pueblo, CO.  I made it home in time to return with the truck and trailer and do my second Dallas Market.  Bought my first John Deere for the property and a barbed wire fence.  In July my hubby and I were camp counselors for a whole long week at our church camp and a bunch of teenagers.  (I’m glad I survived to tell you about it)!  We did make it back to the beautiful CO and drove to the top of Mt. Evans and it was scary!  Left my name at the Cadillac Ranch and slept at the bottom of the Palo Duro Canyon!  Did I mention I’m still working on the flip house!  By now We’ve moved in my friends!  After all this adventure I bought my first kayak and cruised Rockport with the waves and the fish.  Yes, I’m making jewelry and stamping cards and creating in between all these lines your reading!  Did I mention I’ve got a teenager now too, that I’m homeschooling!  I made some great new friends in business and in life.  And right before the Year ended I started working for a very talented woman in Round Top and growing as usual.  Despite the sanding, the long days, the short nights and the many things I probably missed……….I AM BLESSED.

I look forward to a new year.  For an opportunity to see new things, make new things and to serve while doing it.  As always, God is Good!

2014 Has come to an end.

So, I know it’s February and I’m just now getting this out but what a year it has been!  Ok so a year and some months.  Let me start with God is Good.  Although we endured some trials and a few obstacles that we overcame.  We survived the Bastrop fires by 200 yards in Bastrop and miles close to us in Smithville.  I wrote my first book on jewelry design and it will be on shelves this March!  I finally had my wrist surgery and when they said worse case scenario I meet all the criteria.  Worst case, but I’m recovered now!   I meet the talented and amazing Jo Packham of Where Women Create!  Pinch me Please!  I had the opportunity to participate in the Bastrop Extreme Home Makeover and work with many talented designers. Got my motorcycle license and had my first ride out to Blue Hills pre-show (not good for antique shopping FYI)! Also doing a live interview about my business with Emily Henderson of HGTV.  To top it off I meet Willie Nelson on a sunny day!  As we approach another year and another Roundtop Antiques Fair I hope you can come celebrate life’s adventures with me!  I’m up for a new year and new journeys.  I just hope an organized craft room is in the future and time time time to CREATE!!

Thank you for all who stand by me, behind me and beside me!

HERES TO A NEW YEAR!
