Hi Friends ♥♥♥

Hi everyone,

Yes, I am still here.  It has been a grueling 2 months and it's not over yet!

We have been in the process of moving to a GREAT location; Dana Point, California, within walking distance to the beach and the weather is so Awesome here!!! 

We moved from the High Desert of California, approximately 100 miles away so distance wise it was not a long move but if you have ever moved all of your household before you know what I'm going thru - "H.E.L.L." 

It doesn't matter if you just moved next door when it comes to moving your "STUFF", it is exhausting, stressful, and basically one of the most overwhelming things you can do.  We have not moved for 10 years so we have  accumulated quite a bit of "STUFF", which during this move I discovered just what items of "STUFF" held their undying importance to me from over the years. 

We downsized,  so fitting everything into a space half the size that we moved from has been a most incredible feat!  Even though I had 3 garage sales, listings on Craig's List, Gave away a lot of "STUFF" What was left over still did not fit into one 26ft U-Haul Moving truck!  AMAZING!  So during this overwhelming, exhausting move I did entertain 4 different melt downs.  I truly thought I could not get thru this another day, but with the love and support of family and friends we managed to do it.  So, two trips with 2  different U-Haul trucks, we are now close to being 100% settled.

The garage is filled with boxes of things we just could not let go.  Items that I need for my online stores as well as my husband's treasures he could not part with, we will work thru all of that soon.  I just have my studio to completely set up and then I am done and will be able to walk about the house with a big sigh of relief.

Thank you for sticking with me, I have missed my stores, (still in vacation mode) on etsy, artfire, ecrater, zibbet, etc.  But I shall be up and running soon.  My Etsy Shop " The Queen's Royal Coach" is open for business,  however, I do need to get busy on my Fall Line of Jewelry, which needless to say, I am so far behind!

Have a great day everyone!!  I will do my best to get back on track and make regular postings, I am so excited to be living here at the beach,  I have this new surge of energy and I am ready to get things in order and back on schedule.

JUNE was a Whirlwind Month!

Dr. Shawn Mollenhauer
OK, Summer is clearly in full force and lots of things going on.  June was a special month for our family.  Our son, Shawn graduated from UC RIVERSIDE and received his doctorate in musicology.  He currently teaches at the University in Denver and will be adding to his employment record with other job offerings I am sure!  Yay, CONGRATULATIONS Shawn, or I should say, Congratulations Dr. Mollenhauer!  We are so proud of you, it has been a long and arduous road, but you made it and you did it on your own! 

My husband Michael conducted seminars this month, which I help him with, however he is the expert and he does the speaking I am just the cheerleader and help with set up and book orders.

Racing with our grandson Cole Cabrera.  We love going to his races.  He is so awesome, so talented. We are looking for sponsors for this up and coming NASCAR racer.  He really is Great, take a look at his accomplishments, read his web page and Call us!

Then there is just everyday life.  But, I was able to finish a couple of pieces of jewelry and I will post them for all to see.

AND then--of course, there is the Casey Anthony Trial!  OMG, I have been consumed with it!   If you have not followed this trial you have seriously missed out on the most incredible story told.  You can't make this up!  Better than any book or movie out there!  So, so tragic that it is a true life event.  It is so incredibly unbelievable!  In fact, as I sit here updating my blog I am listening to closing statements.  I wonder just how long it will take the jury in deliberations?

Just a touch of Humor for a FRIDAY

So Sorry! Really!!! ♥♥♥

I have been so neglectful! Not that I haven't thought about you, just consumed with life and trying to stay one step ahead of all  the madness.  I can see that no matter how hard I try...It is IMPOSSIBLE to stay ahead of most things, "Life Just Happens" and you have to be flexible and go along with it and try to smile along the way!

Please forgive me.

Can You BELIEVE IT? It's March...WOW!!!

March, March, March.  It is amazing to me, I feel dazed and confused about this being the month of MARCH, where is all the time going?

I can see that the weather here is going to be a little crazy again in the high desert of Southern California where I live, but then, I will welcome any type of weather that DOES NOT include wind.  I hate wind. 

I have been trying to find a place to move to that does not have wind.  Saying that, I have to admit,  for this past year we have not had as much wind as in the past.  This area is famous for it!  It involves winds as high as 60 miles per hour and it can go on for days and guess what happens then?  Well, Sand is flying everywhere, you of course can't open the windows in your house and be sure and watch out for those lovely dust particles which eyes seem to attract.   AND if you have allergies, forget it, you will be miserable-guaranteed.

Anyway, at this point I do not think we are going to have winds, we'll let me make sure about that; I'm going to check  Oh My Gosh!  I am so excited!  So, the lows are going to be in the mid-high 30's at night and the highs in the mid-upper 60's during the day and NO WIND!  Awesome!

Welcome March Madness!

Hi Everyone! ♥♥♥

No Excuses, it is what it is, My life is Crazy ♥♥♥

I did manage in the middle of the insanity to make a NEW Bracelet.  I would love to know what you think.  It is very Sweet and "Springtime".  I Love Daisies, always have so I have added this one to my favorites list.  Simple and Sweet;  Looks great on your wrist, fits nice, not droopy, but NOT snug either.  I would have to say it hangs just right!

This Beautiful Bracelet is available in my Etsy Store right now.

Have a Great Evening and Long Holiday Weekend!  ♥♥♥

Gold Color is Popular

Good Morning!  Yes, it has been a while.  I hope that you are all Safe and Warm, the weather this year is unbelievable most everywhere.

I created this Gold Color Keychain/Purse Charm yesterday, I hope you like it.  The Gold Color shows up a little darker in the Photo than it actually is in person but it is still pretty.

Back Later!   ♥♥♥

I will be back tomorrow to post.  I think I will share with you some of my "Favorites" starting with Fragrances.  I have been on a quest,  again,  for a new fragrance.  I found one the other day and I have most definitely added it to my "Favorites List", so YUMMY! 

Have a Good Night.....

Happy New Year Everyone ♥♥♥

Well here we are the beginning, the first, the only day 1 of 2011. Wow, what in the world happened to 2010? My head is whirling, my memory must really be gone, and don't even talk to me about another year of aging!

So, I have decided to welcome 2011 with all the gusto of a constant party surrounded with friends and family and enjoying every minute that I can! :0)

Done with the "Guilt thing" so I did not make any New Year’s Resolutions, life is just too crazy with never ending changes so there ya go, I will truly take it one day at a time. I do have a wish list: I hope to spend more time designing; jewelry, clothing, handbags; I hope to spend more time with family; I hope to be brave enough to overcome any and all obstacles in my path; I hope to stay healthy and gain more wisdom; I hope that any and all changes and adventures will truly make me a stronger person; I hope that I can continue to Laugh and embrace whatever NEWNESS comes my way; I hope to really get the tolerance and patience thing down and be loved for my gentleness and kindness; I hope to be a better friend;

So far, doing great today, sure it's ONLY 1:11pm (PST) but hey; it is a NEW BEGINNING right?

The Prime Rib is in the Oven the Potatoes are nearly baked, dessert is tempting me; it is ready and available to partake. My sister and Brother-In-Law are on their way over and we will be having what we call “LINNER” around 2:00 p.m.

It will be a nice relaxing, fun day, just the four of us old people, “COOL Old People”, eating, and reflecting on the past I suppose, enjoying a luscious beverage or two, possibly watch a movie later on.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE “It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin, I cannot get enough of that movie, or perhaps we will watch, “Wolfman” I found this to be a most awesome movie the 2nd time around and of course, ANTHONY HOPKINS, does it get any better than him and his acting? I do have a crush on him!

So good friends, I wanted to share a little of my 2011 thoughts and wish you all a “HAPPY NEW YEAR”, may you love your life, have the best of health and prosperity in this new world that we live in.

Hugs to all! ♥♥♥
