Happy Fourth! Updates...

Happy 4th, everyone!
Around here, it's supposed to be a pretty soggy one, boo.  It's ok, though.  This year the hubs finally decided not to do bigger fireworks, or really any at all.  It really bothers the dogs, especially Sam, so the last few years I've stayed in with them to calm them down.  This year will be another game night for the boys, possibly a little grilling and chillaxing.  :)

With July 4th, comes a.... SALE!  I've added 12 new pieces of jewelry (some left over from the Reston market as explained below), so there's a variety of prices available.  All you need to do is add coupon code JULY4 in the box at checkout and get 15% off your order!  This applies to ANY piece in my shop, so if you've been eyeing something, get it cheaper!  Yay!

Happy Anniversary, Sammy!
One of my "facebook memories" popped up and it was a video from July 1, 2012.  It was of Sam the day we brought him home from Jackie's house.  The video shows Sammy as a pup of 12 weeks jumping all over Maggie trying to chew on her ears.  Maggie was all over him, too, and we were so worried she'd hurt him.  Flash forward to 70 lb Sam today!  Dog of steel, for sure!  :)  Happy adoption day, Sam!

Reston Market
Thanks to everyone who came out to see me at the Reston market.  It was so good to see all of you and such a surprise!  Unfortunately, this turned out to be something we no longer wanted to do.  The last time we were there, the husband and wife organizers were ridiculously rude and demeaning to us about where and when we were to set up.  Very unorganized.  I spent a good amount of money to receive a "reserved" space and never received it... instead we were talked down to and made to feel like idiots, especially by the husband.  So, we told them we wouldn't be back and asked for a refund.  Two weeks later, we received it, thank goodness, but it was a very uncomfortable situation, for sure.  Wouldn't recommend it, local jewelry peeps.

Future Markets
The fall seems to be "the" time for craft and art festivals, so that's what I'm shooting for, but so far I'll be exhibiting my jewelry at the following events:

-Jamming Java, Vienna, VA - August 7 from 2 - 8pm.  This event also benefits The Water Project

-South Riding Fall Festival - South Riding, VA - September 24 from 12 - 6.

-W.T. Woodson Holiday Happenings - Fairfax, VA November 5 - 10am - 3pm.

 More to come, hopefully!

Mediumship News
I really doubt I'll be having a Halloween Event this year... I just haven't had the time to find a new place, and it's a serious amount of work to put on.  Still thinking about it, though.  I am considering a small 25 person event, but again I need to find a new place.  If you know of anything, please let me know!  :)

I will be holding a Psychic Development Workshop sometime in the fall, so if you're interested, please contact me to let me know.  I'm thinking mid-October or so.

As far as my wait list is concerned, I'm slowing moving through it and will be making more calls to book for August very soon.  Those who have expiring gift certificates, don't worry about it.  I'll be calling soon and will get you in even if it's after the expiration date.

Thank you to everyone on my wait list for your patience!  :)

I think that's it for now!  Happy 4th of July.  Have a safe one!
