Precious! A friend indeed!

I want to learn to knit someday :)
Love and prayers,


Hi Joanne,
I know it's been a long time since I've been in contact, but you've been posting again and I felt like I should say, Hi! You inspired me with the charm bracelet post, I've always felt a connection with you and the charm bracelet. My parents gave me one when I was ten.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't been in contact sooner. Everything is fine, I decided to close the shop because my lease was up and I didn't want to commit for another three years. It was fun, but time for me to move on.

I'm back to graphic design and enjoying it. I've started a blog ( and am trying to figure out how to work from home!

I'm glad you're enjoying Colorado, it looks lovely!


She is a doll baby! :) My Daisy DOES dig. A lot. But she's a backyard dog. I wish she were calm enough to let inside but she's a wild woman!
