At My Warehouse

This is the busiest time of the year for my company. We are so grateful for all the designers and bead shops who buy their components from us.



A key member of my staff had to attend to a family emergency out of state this week, which left us very shorthanded. That means I needed to help fill orders in addition to all my other daily tasks. That's why you haven't heard much from me lately.
There hasn't been a moment to spare. 





Do you wear something special on busy days to cheer yourself along? I certainly do! The black jeans I am wearing are by French Dressing Jeans. The short black boots are by Franco Sarto via T.J.Maxx.






This beautiful tunic blouse is new from Body Language by Connie. She has a great eye for finding high-quality pieces at a very reasonable price.

I also got these two fabulous bracelets from Jewels of the Vineyard this week. I love the modern look and comfortable fit of these bracelets! They never get in the way when I am working and they don't make noise.






This is a tiny portion of the orders we packaged and shipped during just one hour this week. All those priority boxes and much more will be out the door by the end of the day. My staff is really amazing!





I respect all of my employees so much! It is very impressive that they can do the tedious work of pulling thousands of tiny items for orders every day and so rarely make a mistake. Regina, my vice-president, has a mind like a computer! She sends thousands of packages to clients all over the world and yet remembers unique instructions from repeat clients. Amazingly that is just one small part of her responsibilities.






Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Jewels of the Vineyard

I have been wanting a leather cuff or bracelet for the longest time, but they all seemed too masculine for my taste.


You can just imagine how excited I was when Cheryl Thompson, the designer of Jewels of the Vinyard contacted me.


She creates handcrafted fine leather bracelets which are the most elegant I've ever seen. Her company is Jewels of the Vineyard in the Napa Valley. Cheryl uses leather from Spain, Greece and Italy and beads from around the globe. All the bracelets are designed and handmade in her workshop. Cheryl says, “I create jewelry to express the beauty of the person who has chosen my work to wear.  Be Beautiful!”
