Inspiration for Your Day

Taken at the zoo by me

Go Confidently in the Direction of your Dreams!
Live the Life You've Imagined.

I love this quote! I need to remind myself of the direction to take to make my dreams come true. What are you doing to make your dreams come true? I would love to hear all about them in the comments. I think it would inspire all of us to learn of each others dreams. I also think that when you tell others of your dreams it helps them come true. I think this works for goals as well, so feel free to list those as well because sometimes they can be the same.

Happy Mothers Day

I have 5 sisters and 4 of us are mom's, so Happy Mother's Day to them and to my mom! She's not big on pictures I don't have any pictures to share. Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's! For all you do daily, weekly, monthly that you're children will never realize until you are a mother. (Yes I realize that some of your children will never be mother's!)

I know I didn't realize all that my mom did/continues to do all the time for me until I became a mom. I love you mom and thank you for all that you do for your 5 daughters!

I'd like to do something new... to me anyway. I love quotes, I collect them in a little book. I've been trying to find a way to incorporate them into my work but so far I haven't figured out a unique way to do it for me. So I thought I would at least start sharing them with you here. Maybe it will remind me not to forget about my favorites and start getting inspired to be creative with them. So without further ado I give you 'The Quote of the Week'
'The beautiful is everywhere.'
Fernand Leger

I took this picture at the Desert Botanical Gardens.

Goals for the month of May

Just something pretty to look at, it has nothing to do with this post!

I've been reading the Modish Biz Tips and I've decided to participate in the monthly goal. I have learned so much from reading this blog. Jena is awesome! So here goes: 1. Hire help! 2. Get a handle on the packaging area. 3. 3 more wholesale orders 4. Write press release for local media for upcoming article in Modern Bride 5. Finish recipes that go with new pendants (Garden Charms) 6. Find new supplier for recycled fine silver and gold. (I've been trying to go completely green with everything I use, maybe this will be the month I can get it done for good.)
7. 5 new designs ready for castor. I know there is many more things to add to the list of goals but most of them are personal so I will save those for another blog post. I have been writing my goals for a while but I really like the idea of writing them down for me to be more accountable because now I have to see them and tell people so now I really have to strive to complete them.

If you have a business or are looking at starting one you need to be reading this blog. I hope you're having a good week.

Introducing...a new addition to my family

Okay so maybe that wasn't fair because its a new addition to my family of growing charms not my actual human family! Sorry about that. =)
These new charms we're inspired/requested from my sister Holly for her new godchild on his baptism. These are perfect for the new mom for a baby shower or for christenings as well. They feature the new baby's monogram on one charm and the date of birth or baptism/christening on the other. And just for another personal touch the boy monogram charm has a tiny sailboat on the back and the girl monogram has a princess crown on the back. If this is for a baptism/christening I will add a cross to the back of the date charm.

Well its been a crazy week so back to work! I hope you all had a lovely productive week and here's to a wonderful weekend as well.
