Life Changes and Big News

The Creative Goddess, New Jewelry Line


I’ve been writing off and on for over a year now about some big life changes my husband and I are going through.

It’s been pretty nerve wracking to tell truth. I haven’t been able to talk to very many people at all about it.

I still can’t say too much about it but I can tell you about one of the outcomes of those life changes.

I found myself one day asking Warren what he would like to do if he didn’t work his “regular” job and he replied with, “I want to work for you. I want to work for The Creative Goddess.”

That set our minds to working while the big changes were continuing to brew in our life.

We started experimenting, talking and planning.

A little here and a little there.

We have begun to combine his love of metal working and my love of jewelry and are gearing up with our own line of jewelry elements. Of course we started with my own goddess image that he created for me when I started my very first blog five years ago. The image above is one of our first pieces.

There are still tweaks that need to be made, mad scientist experiments to conduct and lots of pieces to create but we are on our way.

I’m so excited that we will be working together, creating together and building a business together.

So here is to the next phase of our life.

Here is to lots of creativity, work we love and even some travel.

Here is to living our dreams.
