So as you may have guessed, that also means my birthday is approaching. In about two weeks. I used to enjoy having birthdays - fall is my favorite time of year, and the color is always peaking and making the day beautiful. BUT - now that I'm PAST the 5-0 point, well - they just seem to come and go. Hubby doesn't make a big deal (he probably wouldn't even if I wanted him to), and my mom's in Florida, so really, no cause for celebration. This year though - I think we're going to take a color tour. I was told that I would make some new contacts and find some new possibilities for my business by going on a trip by one of the newer psychics at the bookstore a few weeks ago, and she seems to be pretty spot on accurate much of the time. I also want to check out a bead store I heard about in Gaylord - which is a few hours north - the perfect place for leaf peeping. There's also a nice sporting goods store on the way (something for the hubby to do), and a Michigan micro-brewery restaurant that is quite popular. I think it's going to be a fun trip - as long as the weather cooperates.
Back on the bead and jewelry topic: I totally re-did my booth at The Grand-dale Shoppe yesterday. I added a new link photo on the right, but here's another one - should have used flash, but we did realize yesterday that even though the purple is perfect for me, it is a bit dark. So here's hoping sales are good enough to move to a larger, whiter booth in the future!
