Vick vs. PR

I watched the 60 minutes with Michael Vick the other night and I am a true lover of animals. I am very oipinionated and jus tingk that a PR firm tryin to hold back the tomatoes from being trown at him fotball season is a far cry from the lives of the innocent animals that he took. THey are your best friends and love you unconditionally. They dont he voices and need us to speak for them He might has well of committed a murder in my eyes, because my og glodie is like a person to me.She is my best friend. To do what he did and still recieve million dollar contracts and endorsements makes me sick. Those PR firms in support of him should think about the crimesthey condone in coaching him on how to lie on natioal tv. Think about the look in the animals inno=cent faces…. Im from PA and saddened at Phillys representation right now. Pittsburgh is he place to be always and forever!

Fear of Flying

Tonight I am restless, thinking about the business and our well deserved vacation this week. I have been up all night the past few nights reading, to try to tame the thoughts in my head that re circling around my aura. A lapop is a blessing, however it is a curse at the same time. It frees me from holding the thought I have in, but, keeps me up all night venting… As most of you know, I have just reeased the new fall line, put it on an incredible sale. Between Etsy, here, blogger and like 5 other social venues, I am finding myself wondering what is going on with the net while Im workig on the wreaths! I lay in bed, tossing and turning thinking about ideas that come through that I am studting in my mind from the anxiety of possibly not being able to remember those ideas in the morning. I think about random things as well, such as.. the dress that Michelle Obama wore at the inauguration made the artist an overnight success with people lined up around his block to recieve glimpses of his other designs. What can I do to get that discovery? That certain stroke of luck running wild digging me out of this (just above water) mode that is this harsh economy. I will turn once more andpossibly throw a leg over a blanket to think of Economic stimulous plans and how banks can fail and pay their executives top dollar and fly them around in corporate jets for private parties… and I dont have health insurance? I have been reading a lot lately, some is what I call Fundamental reading for pleasure purposes, and the other half of spare time has been developing internet media and design kills for a new business I am lauching soon in Web development and advertising. The Librarians now me by name as I stroll through their halls at least once a week. Then, Comes my trip this week, while I could not be more excited, nd anxious about seeing my family- experiencing the familiarity wit childhood friends and the comforts ofhomebase surroundings, I am distracted from my slumberess thought by listening to a loud jet engine pass over the house. This sound, so deafening that its hard not to think about anything else other hat the huge plan flying overhead… at 5 am?? I fly often, but everytime, I wonder what if? What if they lose my luggage again like they did on Christma Last year? What if the hurricane gets closer and we are delayed? What if it comes while we are there and cant get back in time for work??? zI know, I must sound loopy… itis 530 AM and I am still awake, babbling in my blog (which I love) about thoughts circling my path. Speaking of path, I just designed a website for my mom that you should all ceck out– its called YourSpiritualpathways.com- and its not quite where we want it to be, but certainly on its way. I think my lack of sleep has something to do with the tea I had earlier (: Thanks for keeping up with me- check out the wreaths if you get the chance… they are so fabulous! WWW.Wreathconnecton.com and feel free to comment if you would like- I could use some cushioning to me new fear of flying (:

Just finished NewMoon

Stephanie Meyers has you yearning for more in the end ofthe second book in the Twilight series. I enjoyed it just as much as the first although, I had to use my imagination bit more with this one, and it was off a slower start in the beginning. The book proves a jealous circustance for the three of the leadig characters Bella, Edward and acob. Whie in Twilight you can never imagine Jacob coming into play, he sure does in the second… at times you can really tell these books were written for tweens because the love that bella and Edward share is always so methodically calculated romantically, like you fantasize about when you are a girl in your adolesence. As an older woman reading these novels, I have a hard time completlely sinking into the romance as I know certain loves like theirs are very rare- let alone living in the non existant world of Vampires and werewolves. Lemmie tell ya tho, Stephanie Meyers Style is flawless in putting you in the scene at the moments that make the book what it is, and she defenitely captures them in New Moon by making you feel as if you are on the edge of your seat- waiting for the other shoe to fall. I am off to start Eclipse on Wednesday, which I am intending on reading on my flight to PA. I can’t wait! I was actually trying to think (while on the last page) of scandalously driving to Wal-Mart in the middle of the night to get it sooner, its driving me crazy to be left hanging!! Make sure you come to visit the wreath site at ww.wreathconnection.com, as all of our wreaths over here have just hit a hue sale! Real Low ShippingPrices too!

I methodical and memory filled gnious that you just simply cannot get enough of! Whole Bacon Roasts and the smell of Mountain pies cookin within the hot coals of the flames.

Feelings and Memories of A Northern Fall

I was just thinking about how quikly the days pass, and how much different it is in the fall with the kids in school and all. Here in Florida we do not have the privledge of seasons, and one of the things I miss the most about PA is that when seasons change there, the leaves turn this beautiful color of orange, red and yellow, and the wind that passes through makes this snarly hooing sound. Its so much fun as the energies of the first days of school come through the towns, all the kids with their new schools and supplies. The sound and smell of the school buses that had been on hiatus for the last few months, blend in with the smell of dead crumpled leaves that fly across the street. As the fall months pass by, the the trees only get prettier and prettier while football season runs its course. You hear the faint sound of highschool bands practicing their trumpets and drums through the surrounding woods, echoeing off of the mountains. Closer and closer it comes to Halloween where masquerade is ok, and children get to swim in the best kinds of candy! A secret society of children speak of “which houses are giving the best sweet goods” and the parents and tweens pass by on the street. Excitement of great scary movies and insane adrenaline rush make the blood circulate quickly waiting at home beside the freshly buttered popcorn. A mere month later, Thanksgiving approaches, gathering all kinds of friends and family to go around and enjoy delectable goods that can only be enjoyed once a year. Ensuing conversations of memories of that passing year, and everything to be thankful for. While all full and tired, you retreat to the couches to watch the years best football games, napping in and out of each quarter from all of the turkey. I love fall as it, as a seaason passed almost in the blink of an eye. here in Florida, they all try for the same concept, but most locals have a hard time understanding what the true feeling of fall is like. They miss out on the leaves gorgeous shine off of the cliffs the leaves give in the crisp cold air, as they are given palm trees and 90 degree heat. Most costumes for halloween are light and thin, so that children do not overheat, and complexes run so close together that a child finishes their trick or treating even before it gets dark. The heat proves exhausting. The chocolate melts as they walk, putting a flame under them to make it home to enjoy its solidity. You still get to enjoy haunted houses, as it doesnt matter where you are from and the boos and ahhs still run fluent. Disney right around the corner, hosts a Horror night expedition that is sure not to miss. Special effects and fake smoke covers the neighborhood of Universal Studios. A secret pass enables you skipping line privledges that ensure you are able to see every house and all of their themes. Masquerade a favorite still amongst adults, however most would rather sit at home with air on high, waiting to pass out candy instead. So the fall brings something different for everyone, something personal from every attatched memory. The new line just unveiled yesterday, is an product of the personal feeling that fall gives to me. Years and months pass and it seems my memories of up north never change, they just get more vivid, as the feelings of fall down in Florida are filled with beach visits and seashell themed dishware. I tried to bring the old ,charismatic colors that scream out their holiday, their season, and overall charm. The warm scents and festive coloring display the energy and passion you would expect from the above… first day of school, the adrenaline from all of the candy, and the crispness of the air passing by your nose. I chose the colors in representation of a Northern fall, yet a southern charm. I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the wreaths personal affects, as the feelings rub off in the pictures almost. make sure to visit, and look at the line at WWW.WreathConnection.Com

Halloween Wreaths this year-

Deep Dark Chocolate Potpourri DreamAs much as for fall in which we absolutely love, we made some space in the collection from our favorite holiday, Halloween, by throwing some unique oranges and yellows into the mix.

Making the Internet Work For You

How can a Small business blow up in a economy that is pulling for straws?

Turns out that our wallets aren’t the only things getting smaller these days. In an economy where the President himself is talking over issues with Beer instead of 5 star treatment, has to make us all raise an eyebrow or two. California is even thinking of raising the bar on a legal right to tax Marijuana in reform of making up the costs of the states expenditures. Really? Seriously?

Lately, I have been training myself on how to make the bigger money, in a world where even the highest o0f company advisers have no clue in which to turn. My first focus was to think of the things that people enjoy. I was heavily concentrated on the methods of relaxation, being that limited food, rental, real estate, car payment and various bill deadlines would have national and even international people of the world stressed, and feeling the pinches of a tense environment. Especially seeing as though hours at most companies have been extended to fulfill a goal in which used to be so easy to come by.

I had decided to create a product in which created relation aesthetically, and physically. I then determined the cost of what an idea would run. In realizing that this isn’t your mother’s decade anymore, I tutored myself on the whole mainstream media, and small business concept going international. International I had thought, in big red lights… as a passion for my products ensued, I found myself succumb by the fantasy of the multitudes of different countries and dialects I could reach with this product, which in all actuality is the symbol in which is everything that anyone who believes in Christ, knows the importance of this symbol, The Wreath.

An everyday, décor if you will, often times overlooked, and guaranteed not to know its history- A piece of wall décor initially meant just for Christmas- designed to reach new heights and be able to change some aspects of the world of design and conceptual visionary as we know it. So here I am, internet knowledge practiced, creativity stored in my backpack, and mountains and mountains of possibilities that lie ahead. In an era in which the internet is offering so many outlets to those whose voices and products are eager to be heard and seen, what do I and all of the other small business owners out there have to lose? A time to make something out of nothing, and create examples for those who have a dream they are eager to pursue. I created The Wreath Connection .com by having a dream ensued in a variety of different goals, 1.) to change peoples lives by being their “Pat on the back” when it seems no one cares, 2.) To give the gift of good health and relief of minor aches and pains, 3.) to prove to others that it is still a privilege here in America to be able to target a dream that changes the lives of others, and go strait for it. Aromatherapy is a skeptical service, however beauty is something that has been proven to have effective abilities on the stimulus of the minds nervous system for centuries, and will for centuries to come. We have made these one of a kind masterpieces available for weddings, funerals, birthdays, Thank Your’s, births, sorries, children, just about anything that allows the consumer to be able to sit or sleep in this prescience receiving focus, strength, alleviation of headaches, arthritis, sinus issues, and so much more.

Im coming out with these ideas like Wildfire!!

It is so bazaar, Its 7:45 in the evening here in Florida, and I just spent the day out shopping for unique crafts, when I checked the mail and to my surprise, I had received yet another invitation to a small business group meeting here in the area. Fantastic to me, because I am able to talk about my business and get the message out from others. Also helpful, because it all helps me to learn from any mistakes that they had made in their business. I had decided to hire an assistant for part time work for the business, as they are coming out so beautifully these days, I have a strong workload ahead of me in finalizing their descriptions, fragrances diagnosis information, the research, the postings, the editing, and all of the on-line, and bookkeeping work. My passion is making the wreaths themselves and seeing others bask in their beauty… Not so much going throughout he tasks in informing everyone of their nature. Blogging is the favorite night time habitual business ritual that I will never put into anyone elses hands no matter how successful the company becomes…

At any rate, I had found some amazing materials today, and I am in the process of downloading the music for my ipod, so I can flutter into pure relaxation while I create these new wreaths for the up in coming line. I have a feeling that Christmas is going to be an amazing time for the business, as I can see many people purchasing these wreaths for family members. Having one a lone, I have witnessed can change the appearance of  an entire room, which creates enormous flattery by itself on my part. (; These ideas are based upon flowers that I have found that share the best qualities in beauty I have ever seen, its funnyecause I had never considered myself much of an artist untill recently! To look around and see all of these gorgeous timeless keepsakes, and to sit back and realize the love and mood that I have infused in each one is just absolutly gratifying to me. I simply am biting at the bit to post them, so make sure your there for when it happens, I will be sure to keep you all informed. In the meantime, the newsletter is about to come out on the 25thagain of this month, e mail me or comment me your email and I will add you to the monthly mailing list… Have an amazing night!!

How many wreaths can I make in 1 day?? (;

I have been working tirelessly on the wreaths for the up in comming new line out this fall, and am so excited in what I will have to offer that ideas are running wild like crazy through my mid here in these dog days of summer. As I have some interesting youtube information out to e released soon, I have come across some of the prettiest flowers on sale at the local craft stores here in town. These are flowers with big, silk bulbs in the bottms of their pits sprawling from an assortment of delightful colors making expressions in  my head!! A fantastic opputunity for me as the creation specialist to get involved with some of the pieces an themes for the year ahead. As our economy recovers from an outstanding financial turnaround (hopefully) I am so confident that the mood for this season will even be 10 times better than the last!

We finally have gotten our order for specialty boxes in which is fantastic, and we are putting an ad for Craigslist today!!  So the answer to the headline is…. as many as my hands will let me create!! I know it sounds like an teaser from an American Idol episode, but the ides are flowing like the great Niagara!! Stay tuned!!

Its never to early to start thinking of Christmas

As the months are flying by, and this precious summer we try to grasp on to comes fastly aproaching its end, we are already starting to see aisles being consumed by your average everyday Christmas season spectacles. Predecorated Christmas trees, yard lights and home decor are wierd to see in Floridian 93 degree heat here in the dog days of summer, at the same time, I guess the sooner you start shopping the better.

In a hopefully rising economy considering to show promising numbers, we ae hoping that this season will be a much more happy Christmas than last years, with many more great deeds to be given to change families across the world, one family at a time.

This is where I come is to give all of my readers the downlow. In a few weeks, I will be unveiling a line that is bigger, better than ever…. Showcasing some wreaths that are lit up, ones that are not- Ones that are scented aromatheraputically, ones that are not.  These wreaths are the newest obviously in the collections of whats to come from collections of beautiful silk collections and grapevine bases that we have ever been fortunate enough to get our hands on!

So, if your not doing anything this evening after your done checking your mail, reading your blogs and looking up all your research.. defenately see this post as a heads up to all of my loyal readers.. The new line is going to go fast, and will be perfect for Christmas Gifts this year– Your gonna want to be there when it is unveiled….. Make sure to keep tuning into www.wreathconnection.com

On Youtube Conferencing

I am still feeling my way through the You Tube arts of publishing and friend making, and over this afternoons vanilla flavored coffee, I am surfing this wonderful videos and how-to tutorials on what makes a business worthy of its name conferencing on abreast of subject matter courtesy of evolutions own device known as You Tube. While other small businesses are a product of their own hard earned money, I have been using the skills picked up from the Internet to address questions and theories established through research to help others navigate through the world wide web to get their messages out to the people in the small niches in places so small as the mountains of Ireland for Instance. In this specific case, they wouldn’t have to travel the world to get a sense of what old fashioned living in the Americas was like, but only to experience the decor and the stories behind it by witnessing the craft at its truest form, which are the wreaths in which I have established.

Many different avenues have been taken to navigate a path through this incredible journey. One as useful as Youtube has helped me greatly, as eventually when sales drive higher, I will be able to show my own tutorials on how to make your own essential oils through the arts and mastery of a crafts diagnosis, entailing the ways that a specific artifact on display in ones home can create the feel of calmness… this, unbelievable to some, even me at times, is such an incredible breakthrough that travels way beyond the theories of general home decor.

My business doesn’t mean you have to throw a party for the item, or even make any calls of pressure to your friends on spending money they do not want to spend. In these days, a Lil bit of cash goes a long way, and in the art of living, sometimes after food, there isn’t much left in the form of commodities, or rainy day money to be spent frivolously. I depend on the consumers word of mouth and the art of the Internet to reach people far and wide. Creating a phenomenon that, essentially, speaks for itself.

The Wreath Connection on Social Networking

We, here at The WreathConnection are consistently looking for new and different ways to get our information out there. To lend an ear or any conversation is always invited, adored, admired, and welcome.  Sometimes we tap dance around other world issues to remind our readers how much we are humans too, and how our opinions are sometimes given the position to be heard. In digressing, or pondering the different facilities to utilize, we are often times faced with different decisions as to how they connect with our business, and at the end of the day, what really matters to us, is how we can help you. Social networking is like second nature to all of us bloggers, but fact of the matter is, it is actually very new and sometimes unheard to many business owners. This is a presentaion of hinder for all business owners “Ahead of the times” so to speak. It is only a matter of time before others are catching up and we must prepare ourselves by going steps further to enhance quality, precision, and accuracy of timely posts and deliveries with our outgoing posts.

I have a couple meetings set up next week in which I will be discussing different ways to get noticed on the internet, I am anxious to share with fellow  business owners the gifts in which took me sooo very long to utilize here on the internet. I had come to realize over time, that the number of free ways to really reap the benefits in an astounding way was really at the tips of my fingertips, and also at everyone elses.

Consistency the Best Policy?

I attended an interesting forum this evening at the Famous Swanky Naples Hotel here in Florida on the coast. It was very nice, beautifully decorated, and full of people whom are trying to get there name out there, such as I am. The Forum was for Networking and Marketing Techniques. Focusing primarily on Online blogs. A gentleman spoke about WordPress and how it is an effective way of reaching out because the Yellow Pages have become Obselete, and more people are referring to search engine marketing everyday. I was able to add examples of how this all has helped me in the business very very much. I wasnt privy to the knowledge tonight of how many business owners are behind in the Online aspects of Marketing their business. I felt flattered as they complimented me on how advanced I was, and wondered if I could help them. Since I love to write as well as create, I found it an amazing idea to do some affiliated market trading, also known as Site- Linking, in which I help them so they can in turn, help me to get my name out there. Last night, I finished the Portfollio which was excellent for the meeting today as well. The Association was affilliated with The National Association of Wedding Planners.  I talked to very interesting Caterers, Entertainment Specialists, Fellow WordPress Bloggers, and Florists. They all have different creative ideas of course, those in which they provide a service called “Destination Weddings”. This is a fantastic idea dor a convenient One Time Shop!! Brides have a lot on their minds about the best days of their lives, why not make the details precise, unique and easy while putting the trust of your BIG DAY into an experienced persons hands? Genious! I was able to search many tips I was given by my fellow entrepeneurs, and this enabled me to make the business overhead less than ever!! I realized that just as much as Floral, entertainment, and decor, wreaths can be a way of standing out and floral oils creating a unique, noticable aestetically pleasing atmosphere.

I was fortunate enough to display our portfolio to these people who had never seen articles from a “Blog” before in their lifetime, as all these years, most had been using the paper forms and high overhead to reach out to potential patrons. In this day and age, expecially with the invention of such technological tools such as the IPHONE and higher,  a world where 10 years ago the internet being an evolving technical tool sounds almost unimaginable. I was lucky enough to have the time and energy to be able to research methods of utilizing what is out there to help the needs of my buyers. What do they want in my product? What qualities are they looking for? What quantities am I able of supplying over X amount of time? The whole business mentality of doing something so different, unique, and it being what you love has its defenite advantages, you just have to be on top of what your doing technoligically, and keep ahead of what the world is going to throw out at you next. I realize after tonight, that these forums are going on every day all over the world, informing people of these wonderful tools that we are gifted by technology. Pretty soon, they will start charging for these services… and up on the times entrepeneurs will sit  back a linger for the days where we used to have blogs for free, sites for free, download music and videos for free! Social Networking is still in an experimental phase and soon will be behind the next innovation, so we all benefit greatly from utilizing this sign of the times.

I have decided to donate a Wreath to a organization called “Open Arms” I am very excited as it has the name of one of my most famed wreaths. From what I understand, this is a feature given to businesses whom whould like to “give back” to soldiers and families who are fighting yet still for our freedom overseas. I am absolutely open to donation, and I cannot wait to look into this oppurtunity further!

An evening in New York City

After some relaxation and heavy downpours, I sip my third glass of sparkling raspberry wine- getting ready to show off the newest you tube commercial to the Brooklyn fam, and lay out my outfits for the weekend. I must say, I keep going back and editing the photos for the new line, and brainstorming ideas for upcoming creations while leisurely watching A Day in The White House on NBC with Brian Williams. I Enjoy New York City. Just this morning on my JetBlue flight, I was welcomed into the city by a digital broadcast of The Today show, in which one of my personal FAVORITES  Dave Matthews performed. The other night while I was in the office tying up some loose ends and invoicing wrap ups before the trip… I was listening to AOL radio while listening to him in the back-round, so, it proved to be ironic that he was in concert on Today this morning. Last year, when here, we were lucky enough to catch David Archeleta and David Cook right after the winning Finale of American Idol. I think while featured the size of an ant on international morning news, I fealt closer to fame than ever, as it was my birthday to boot, and my favorite took the crown just mere days previous. I think I called every family member that early New York morning, to see if they could catch an even “glimmer” of my excited, childlike, Beatles outlook on the occasion.

I have also been contemplating an offer that comes in July for a table at a convention, in coordination with the planning of weddings to feature the centerpieces of course, and then the wreaths themselves which we feel would be perfect at the end of Pugh’sin churches and chapels across the country, I am going to present a portfolio in which I will show examples of how beautiful each wreath can look on each location. Different aromas will reflect the persons intentions for the events as well. I just found a great lilac oil, and I love it because it smells like my grandmother used to smell before she passed in 1992. Whenever I use it now, I feel as if she is creating right beside me, a piece of her with me that tells me… “hey… this is looking great, good for you” or “Someone is  going to cherish this piece so much.”  The Press releases have not returned any replies of questions from the media, i was expecting a larger response, however, with consideration of the newest surge in Gas prices, I cannot be surprised at people who are even negligent for a second that by responding, they may be getting themselves into scam mail replies, or bogus mailing lists. We have a shipment coming in a couple weeks,  at this point, I am planning on donating some of the wreaths to different charities and magazines. People are mesmerized by how they look, its hard to trigger the sense of smell from all the descriptive words in the world.  I am continuing  the submissions to Vacation rentals, time shares, contests, company functions, ect. I feel that being involved with the community is going to play an important part of this up in coming  journey. An exciting thing about donation is that someone, somewhere is going to benefit from it greatly- and there are times where that’s what it is about, giving back. I am going to write a list this evening of some new recipes in essential oils, and then I will probably add a list of new wreaths for creation in the next month or so, and (YES) I know, its my first day of vacation, My other completely tuckered out on me and is snoozing with the sheep, and so, I have some focus time in which to think through the creations and diagnosis will benefit others the most, Present Research is the answer to all Societies past questions……

Book about a Blog?

Recently, I have been approached of my research and postings about a possible book, as most of you know, we are a blog that is over 200 pages of excellent factual information mixed with opinion- While a great concept, I am taking this time to focus on the business, and eventually, do plan on printing it all out and turning it into a book one day. Autobiographies are great, inspirational- self help is sometimes better. Excellent content paired with the thoughts ( and sometimes dreams of the author).  Of course, I would need an advanced editor to review my work, and make sure that all of my writing is of true, fragment free state as well as the art of spelling the words right the first time, or so , the readers may think. Pictures interest people so much, as if you only buy a magazine for those hard to get- or, once in a lifetime shots.  Interesting concepts as well. Make sure to check out the site at http://www.wreathconnection.com – it will give you lots of refreshing insight and ideas for ehat I do, and why I am so passionate about it-

Relaxation

Some of you may think that it stands for lounging under a palm tree, some of you may think that it is a representation of yourself climbing a mountain, or swimming  The Great Barrier Reef. Whichever your ideas of relaxation include, for some reason, the idea and feeling of it crawls into our systems and kills all those tense nerves developed over time, but so worth it in the end. As I mentioned in a previous post, I designed a new seashell wreath yesterday very similar to the first. I set it at the bottom of my steps as everytime I walk down, I am faced with this beautiful wreath, its so relaxing for me! This one however, because of the glaze is unscented. Its just beautiful to look at. I pack today for my New York trip tomorrow, and at a last try to get t-shirts made at the last minute, unfortunately failed. We wanted to create personalized t- shirts for our family members in representation of the business, but the prices were outrageous, and there are so many more promotional goods that we are looking to buy with the funds.

I am all revved up for my morning cups of coffee and figure after packing, I will make yet another wreath hopefully, I have debated going and lounging poolside since I understand that it is warmer up North right now, but not as warm as it is here, obviously, so my beautiful pool will go unnoticed by us for the next 8 days. Then on the other hand, I am thinking about not having the appropriate internet connection at the families’ house to write the articles that I will be itching to write, so I am contemplating creating fun. new, and exciting commercials for the biz, and working on its promotion, since I may be without broadband for the next couple of days.  The landscapers are here, mowing the lawn. That sound has always reminded me of the introduction to summer. You know that is around the corner, or here, when you can smell those fresh juices coming up from the freshly cut grass, as that scent that is so unique fills the outside air. When I was a child, one of my most fondest memories of my father is when he would cut the grass, as he would make his way around the house, he would always look into my bedroom window to take a break and check on me to see how I was doing, he would stop, and drink some of his Genesee, in which I though everybody drank until I was old enough to drink myself… and his pants and shoes were always covered with the sticky fresh cut grass as mowing a mountain lawn is not the easiest thing in the world to do.  A small thing  about my father that I miss often.

I know I mentioned in a previous post that there is this desk that I am absolutely crazy about. I have gone as far as daydreaming about where it will go in my house, what I will store in its drawers, the decor around it to emphasize its quality and class, and more importantly, the amount of work I will get done in the quiet area in which I am going to put it. Luckily for us, the person who designed our home left a convenient nook at the top of the stairs with extra units to make it a haven for the new desk.

Youtube has been an amazing place for us to find information about aromatherapy, and the uses, results, peoples opinions, and studies done on the essential oils. Fascinating hearing people speak within their own words about studies done and results that have derrived from them. We actually found candle at Jo Ann Fabrics yesterday that have the themes of the Diagnosis used as the names of the candles.  Excellent concept, however, the candles were expensive and didn’t offer a quarter of the potentcy that our wreaths do- on a lighter note, we did find a wreath that was 46 inches! I could imagine what I could do with this wreath as I watched its lonely skeleton hang on the bar as advertised. I imagined a beatiful Mansion- like home having this wreath displayed for everyone in the neighborhood to enjoy. Once the business reaches a new level that we have forecasted, I will defenitely incorporate this new, larger, grapevine wreath. I look forward to devoting a long period of time on a huge, thick, definition of the quality and endurance that our wreaths have to offer.  I am currently in the process of designing a portfolio for a Wedding show that we are doing in a couple of weeks. I figure, I can get the photos blown up into 8 by 10 and slip them into plastic covers for my binder with their detailed diagnosis, materials, ect. located on a printout designed for the other side of the sleeve.

So what is relaxing to me is obvious, they should make a waterproof laptop, so I can sit around the pool and write articles about the business, while I collaborate in different window all the ideas that I have for future creations and tweeking to the website, also while leading a group of followees on Twitter.  As the coffee brews, I shall start to pack for the trip, and take the day from there by the horns….
