Hey Ya'll!!!

Thanks for all the comments on my last post, everybody!!  I woke Lita up from her "nap" so she could pick the winner of the earring giveaway...I threw all the names on the floor...she just looked at them at first, but finally picked one up and it was [insert drumroll here] ~ DANA!!!  Yay!!  Congratulations, Dana!  You won those awesome earrings from my last post!!  Send me an e-mail with your mailing address and I'll have them on their way to you in two shakes of a lamb's tail!  I know you will enjoy them!!

The weather was awesome today!!  60 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!  So, Wayne and I took advantage of it and went on a hike!  We came across these beautiful horses, grazing in a field.  They were so friendly and sweet!  This one kept nudging my head and rubbing his nose on my face ~ I fell in love!
And then we came across this awesome tree "hugging a rock"...and it made me wonder...what was there first?  The tree, or the rock?  What do you think?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!  And I'll leave you with some words of wisdom...
 don't forget to brush your teeth!

love & peace always ~ Kathy

I wonder what you see…
when you look at me.
If you’re my friend, I’ll know it…
because your eyes will surely show it. ~ Written today by me

Happy New Year!!

Hello, hello!!  [more about this photo in a bit] I hope everybody had a wonderful Holiday Season!!!  I sure did and I'm sure glad it's over!  I think this was the busiest [as far as commitments] holiday season I've ever had!  We literally were invited to something every day [two things one day] for five days in a row!  Whew...I was wiped out by New Year's Eve and I fell asleep 1/2 an hour before Lady Gaga performed!  Did any of you see her?  Was it epic?  I'm sure it was entertaining, nonetheless. 

I've been busy making new things, buying new beads and trying new styles.  I'm also trying several new networking/marketing techniques to see if I can jump start my jewelry sales again.  There is just so much competition out there and staying on top of it all and ahead of the game is much more work than it was five years ago.  But, I'm determined!!  The show must go on!!!  And, with that said, I'm giving a pair of these away:
I love the winged hearts!  Perfect for Valentine's Day!  And so adorable!!  All you have to do to win a pair is comment on this post.  Lita will be picking a winner sometime Friday...good luck!

So, I bet you're wondering about that photo with the Peace Sign and my feet!?  I took it yesterday at a place in South Carolina called "Bald Knob" ~ it's a gorgeous place, but over the years all of the rock has been covered [literally] with graffiti ~  it's kinda sad, really, but at least most of the painting and writing is meaningful and pretty.  I used this photo for my very first day of 2012.  I'm going to take one photo every day for the whole year and they are titled "From Where I Stand".  I also started a Flickr Group called "365 Days of What Life Is All About" ~ I would LOVE for you to join it!!  And don't worry if you are not able to post a photo every single day, it's just fun seeing everyone's creativity.  And speaking of "creativity", I guess I need to see about fixing something for dinner!

So Happy New Year Ya'll!!!  2012 is going to be the best year ever!  I can feel it!!

love & peace always ~ Kathy

In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want. ~ Irish Toast
