Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Ahhhh, it’s amazing what a day of rest can do for the soul!


I had forgotten what it is like to not have to go anywhere! Pure bliss!

We are in the middle of a winter weather advisory through tomorrow at noon. We are expecting 6-10 inches of accumulating snow. My kids are so excited, they think they are going to have a snow day!

Let it Snow,
Let it Snow,
Let it Snow!


Wishin’ for a blissful snow day for you all!

Hey Soul Sisters!


I made the necklace above last night using some larger vintage dimpled pearls (love!), crystals and vintage lace. It is fun to be able to create and share with you again since the past few weeks were create, create, create and no share… The sharing will come soon though, I promise! I really don’t like keeping secrets from you, my friends, but it is a necessary part of the business… I am terrible at keeping secrets too!

I have been wanting to share about a meeting of “soul sisters” that I had last Friday. Three weeks ago I started a class called Hello Soul, Hello Business by Kelly Rae Roberts and Beth Nichols. The class started the week I went to the Dallas Gift show so I only had a couple days into the class in Dallas. This class has encouraged me to look at my business in a whole new way. in fact, something happened in Dallas that I am confident would not have happened had I not taken the first two days of the course. It really caused me to take a different perspective on my business along with the encouragement if my amazing and supportive husband who always has an eye open for opportunity. I look forward to telling you the rest of the story!

I am kind of a flunkie in the class right now because I am so behind with all of my other life obligations, my free time is pretty rare…

A cool benefit of the class is a private Facebook page that the classmates have been able to connect with each other. It wasn’t long before we discovered that there were quite a few of us from the group that live in Minnesota. We were excited to meet in person!

Last Friday was an amazing day of connections… Incredible women with diversified backgrounds… Each of us so unique but with a common artistic bond. The stories shared were so touching, brave women facing heartbreaking challenges through life, women with courage pursuing the path that fulfilled their soulful purpose.


I think we were all surprised by the connections we made that day… I look forward to our next meeting!


Here we are, I am hoping to feature these dynamic women on my blog in the future! This photo courtesy of Tonya Hasbargen Love!

I hope you have a chance to connect with your soul sisters! Have a fantabulous day!

Kris 🙂
