So, on to the more fun things....I've got a number of photos so I'll keep the chatter short....
Monday ~ videotape was made with interviews from me and the family for Remarkable Moms 2014 Celebration ~ top secret until the big party on May 10th.
My sweet girls provided yummy snacks for Dasha and Jamie in appreciation for their hard work, and they presented me with these beautiful flowers as a remembrance of the day.
Tuesday and Wednesday were spent working on the latest in jewelry and catching up on my Design Challenges for Alchemy of Objects ~
Spent the day on Saturday with dear friend Sandra at the 22nd Street Antique Mall ~

As for me in this new week, we will be celebrating our sweet Shotzie's birthday on Sunday with a celebration at one of our favorite Tucson resorts. It's also a celebration of her amazing accomplishments as a 10 year member of MAC cosmetics. She's in Los Angeles this week on business, and we're so happy that she has this opportunity, but it's bittersweet as she comes home late Friday night ~ her actual birthday. Mom's not used to having her chicks away on their Special Day!
It's also back to the Hive for the next two weeks, without interruption ~ preparing for my Spring Trunk Show...
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go ~ sending you love and blessings for a most wonderful week!
