Classes and Meet & Greets and Jewelry Needs – Oh My!

Well the bad news is that the time factor I wrote about in my last post hasn’t changed. More time has not been added to my days. I guess time really is a limited construct in this dimension. Sigh…

The good news is that several classes, open workshops, and a Meet & Greet have been scheduled for the month of October at my bead-shop partner’s location in San Marcos.  Erin, Sue, and Tommy at GBM Bead Mall in San Marcos have been so kind and enthusiastic, they are a pleasure to work with!

Last Saturday I spent a few hours at the store meeting jewelry makers from every level and walk of life. We shared stories and ideas, and had a wonderful time. The one theme that kept recurring was that of caring and resilience. It seemed that almost everyone that I spoke with had something difficult in their life, and that creating jewelry was one of the things that was helping them to move forward and keep their heart open. It really brought home the whole “Jewelry Therapy” idea that I’ve been working on.

Energy management is another thing that has been on my mind. My daughter started a new job a couple of days ago and she is being trained by the person who is vacating the position. There was a lot of frenetic energy around her during her first day of training, and she arrived at the house after work with a migrane headache – her first one ever. I offered Reiki*, which she gladly accepted, and we were able to get the headache to dissolve quickly. As she rested after the session I created a protective necklace of Labradorite and Tourmalinated Quartz to shield her aura. Her next day at work was more difficult than day one, and yet she was able to make the most of the day, and not get a horrible headache in spite of what was going on around her. It felt really good to know that she is learning energy management techniques, and that I could be a support to her in her process. That’s what it’s all about for me! Oh, and the necklace was really pretty, too…

I’m really looking forward to all the happenings in October – it’s going to be fun. Check everything out on the “Class Offerings” page. Hope to see you in October at GBM!

Brightest Blessings,

Getting Ready For School

I’ve been plugging away at creating classes and partnering up with a local bead shop to provide some wonderful events to would-be jewelry makers, and it’s been taking up quite a bit of time. I’m kinda resentful about the time factor. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to do, and it really pisses me off!

I know, I know “Welcome to my life,” you say as you giggle…

Well… it still isn’t fair! I’m having too much fun, and all of a sudden it’s time to call it a night.

I kinda feel like the kid at the amusement park who just didn’t get to go on all the rides, and is really not happy with the park closing.

The good news, of course, is that I’m really jazzed and I’m doing what I love.

I just want more! I want to give more! And I’m excited that I get to start doing this again. It’s been a long time.

Right now I’m taking a break from creating some of the class handouts to finally put up a blog post – as I think I’ve mentioned before, building this new habit of blogging  hasn’t that easy for me, but the good news is, it’s getting a little easier. New things have a way of doing that. Remember using your first cellphone? Yeah… it’s old hat now, huh. That’s what I’m hoping for here, too.

Brightest Blessings,
