Remember ~ Our Brick and Mortar Shop is Open for your Visit...

Hi Folks!  Been away for a while here.  I hope to post on a more regular fashion, but life, as you well know, seems to distract me into other direction.  Focus... is the word for me.
  Anyone interested in visiting our Brick and Mortar shop here, will find lots of new delights.  We just received our annual stock of the 2011 Witches Calendars, and Date Books, the famous and well loved Witche's Almanc's are in now too, and a new calendar published by the Llewelyn folks... A beautiful Faerie Magick Calendar.  They are the same price as last year... Yay! only 13.99.  I didn't order as many this year, so we are on a first come first served basis.  Better drop by and pick one up at least for yourself.  They also make a perfect gift for that 'hard to buy for person' in your life.  With the holidays coming up, it's not too early to start your Yule shopping now, before the crazy rush.
  I have created some new pins, that would make a great, one of a kind gift, that says...'I love you enough to buy American Handmade rather than a big box import.

 This little "Guardian Angel Pin", really fits the I Love You status, don't you think?  You can find her in our Brick and Mortar- Sacred Sparks or in our Art Fire shop.  Click on the title and you will be taken to our shop.  
This is a short post for today... but watch for my next tale about...  the 'Chickens' moving in at Sacred Sparks. 
Be Well ~ Be Aware ~ Be Prepared...  Till later.... Linda

When dial-up and slow speed is a persons lot, you can guess that Internet work happens at the pace allowed. As artists and homesteaders living in the depressed state of Michigan, I find I don't get to this Blog as often as I'd like. I have been working on many projects and can happily say, I have compiled our income taxes for 2009. WooHoo! Now all we have to do is buy Turbo Tax small business program and that work is DONE! It will be a first for me, I usually drag my feet and procrastinate until, in a panic I'm pulling the midnight oil to get it done by April 15th. I really don't like those kind of panics, one little bit. It is so liberating to be free of that burden.

So now what? Well, I've already started on finishing jewelry pieces from last December. They are at my buffing bench as I type. Then I will finish some felt and button flowers and little heart pins, for Valentines Day. My beading bench is full of unfinished projects as well. I could go in circles in the studio, but I know that is an unproductive approach. Staying focused is the name of the game in accomplishment. Other projects that are tugging at me is Precious Metal Clay and Polymer Resin ideas that are floating around in my head. The ideas never end.

All of these thoughts leads me to feel blessed and thankful. Yes, we live on the edge here. As artists earning a living in a depressed state, you can imagine the belt tightening we've been doing. But, we still feel blessed to be where we are, geographically, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Money is only a tool, and when you don't have one tool, you look for something else that will get the job done. That's called resourcefulness. When we are called to be resourceful we get creative.

My hope is that everyone can see a great year ahead of them. A year of promise that comes from unexpected places, and full of new opportunities and happiness coming from the small blessings in our lives. We all have them, we just need to see them when they are presented to us. So here we go folks, down the path of 2010. Put on your journey boots, grab your pack of plans, dreams and goals and lets get moving! Who knows what will evolve with hard work and some good old positive thinking. Let's turn a hardship into a lesson, and seek wisdom, understanding and a whole new approach through the difficulty.
