What's on your BUCKET LIST?

I remember after seeing the movie, "The Bucket List" that I really needed to make that list. Well life tends to get in the way and time passes. I also remember thinking that my parents probably never made such a list. They missed out on so many things. I know that my Dad would have loved to have visited Ireland to see where his ancestors came from, and Normandy, France to see the resting place for all of the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom back in WWII. I know that my Mom would have loved to see Germany, where her Mother was from. And I know that in the years before she passed away, she would have loved to have been able to SEE. She became blind in the last 5 years of her life.

But today is not about the things that never happened; it's about the things that I have wanted to do and never thought for one minute would ever happen. But first, I want to reveal what's on my BUCKET LIST - not in any particular order and I'll reveal the things that I can check off!!!

  1. TRAVEL - the Holyland, Tuscany, Provence, England, Ireland (I would really love to live here someday), Fiji and Bora Bora, every state in the USA (I've been to 41)

  2. OWN MY OWN BUSINESS . . . check

  3. BE A GRANDMOTHER - plenty of time for this Kellan

  4. BE PUBLISHED . . . more to come on that


  6. HAVE MY OWN DOT.COM . . . hmmmmmmmm

  7. ALWAYS BE IN LOVE - 28+ years and counting

I know there are so many more that I could come up with, but I surely don't want to lose you. So #6 mentioned that I wanted to have my own DOT.COM. Well, as of tomorrow, I can check that off my list. For the past month or so, my sweet friend Sara has been designing and developing a website for me. What will be different here than from ETSY? Probably not much, but you'll definitely see more new and exciting product. The prices may drop a smidge as I won't have the fee's that ETSY charges :) That's great news, huh? You won't have to "sign up" to have an ETSY account. All you'll need is a PayPal Account for checkout. While I will still keep my ETSY site open for awhile, it will become more streamlined and significantly less product than it does now. So without further ado . . .

If all goes smooth, the site will be up and running on Monday, August 1. At, you'll be able to access not only my new shopping site, my blog is connected so you can pop right over and see what I'm up to. And let me tell, you'll want to stay tuned as there is some amazing news coming up. You'll also be able to find out about special events, sales, and just general information from moi!

So let's get this celebration started. From August 1-15, take 25% off your entire order. Prices are already adjusted, so shop to your hearts content.
