Long time, no newsletter. My last one was in June
2011. A lot has changed since then. I have often in the last
year or so thought to start the newsletters up again but I just let
it go. Now, thanks to a back problem, I have the time to write again.
Several people have told me how much they liked my writing and encouraged
me to start again. I finally listened.
I have spent the last two days re-reading my newsletters
as I update the website. I am a little afraid that I won't be as good,
as I was in a very different state of mind then. I will do my best
to keep them informative and fun.
This one is just a "hello again" and to
see how many addresses on my list are still active. I will create
a full newsletter by the next dark moon
For those that don't know me, the reason I stopped
writing is because I suffered a devastating loss. My boyfriend of
18 years, Brian, decided he couldn't take life any longer and committed
suicide on August 30, 2011. That day was also my dad's 70th B-day.
To me the worst thing ever imaginable is two people
in love and one of them dies. And then it happened to me. It took
me months to get anywhere close to feeling normal again. My family
was great and supportive. And I survived. My next newsletter will
feature how I got through it, and how to help yourself or someone
you know through it.
The surprising thing is that less than a year from
that date, I had a new person in my life. I resisted at first. Its
too soon. But our paths kept crossing and after a few strong signs
from the Goddess, I gave in and started a new relationship. He brought
music back into my life. I thought I was doing ok but I wasn't. He
showed me how to enjoy life again. He is one of the people who encouraged
me to start writing again. And he grills ribs to perfection!
My sister, who you might remember almost died in March
of 2011, is doing great. She has fully recovered and her business
is thriving. She now has her delicious food available for purchase
in a few health food stores in the area.
I am still housecleaning but at a reduced schedule
now as I did something to my back at a one day show in May. I am seeing
a chiropractor and there is improvement but my housecleaning days
are numbered. So I am updating my websites and those of my clients.
Looking for new clients too so if you need a website or know someone
who does, please let them know about me.
Oh yeah, I also had to declare bankruptcy. I was thinking
about this before Brian died, and even told him about it. He had lots
of money and could have paid my debt easily. But he assured me I was
taken care of. Well, I wasn't. I got squat. Then the credit card companies
started playing games with my credit even though I was never late
and add to that the loss of the help I had from Brian....led me to
no other option. I had to include Enchanted Moon Web Design as I had
a business credit card. So I still do web work, just not under that
Infinite Flame Magickal Gel Candles Half Off
Even before all the above happened, things were not
going smoothly at Infinite Flame. It got harder for Alicia and I to
get together to make candles and she seemed to lose interest in it
all together. She didn't even ask about show sales when I did them.
Then after my sister's surgery and Brian's death, I wasn't up to making
candles. I still did shows (thank you to everyone who was so supportive).
After another year of no interest from her, Infinite Flame became
my company. Soooo.....all Infinite Flame
Magickal Gel Candles are now half off!. All $12 candles are now
$6. The Samhain/Halloween candle was $13,
now $6.50. The Seasons and Holiday
sets are $20 each. While supply lasts.
I will be at Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt Clemens
again July 18, 19, and 20. Our Holistic Show is with the Garage Sale
so we will be on one side of the show area. I am informed that that
there will be no divide between the shows so you'll just have to look
for me there. There should be signs directing to which door is best
to enter through. I will have the candles there and I sold quite a
few at the last show. Order yours through the site before then to
be sure you get them. If you are in the area, you can place the order
and then pick them up at the show and I will refund the shipping cost.
Just send me an email so I don't ship them out.
I have been working on the Jewelry
section and will update the Pendulum section
after the show. I am hoping to make more jewelry by the show dates.
My line of soaps are now online too. I finally got
the website up and running. Visit Naked-Soaps.com
to check them out. The shopping cart is the same as Infinite Flame
so orders from both sites are combined into one order to save shipping
