October Update


Before anything, my heart goes out to all who have been and will be affected by Hurricane Matthew.  I believe they are all about 1/2 way into the storm and much flooding is to be expected.  Please stay safe!

I've received a ton of emails and calls to be added to my wait list, so thank you!  The list is rather long now, and I'm in the process of booking people for October, November and December.

A couple of things to mention:

*If you've received an email or call from me trying to book, please get back to me ASAP!  I have left a number of voice messages and sent emails with some not responding.  If I don't hear from you within a few days, I'll need to move to the next person.

*You do not have to do anything to be on my list except to either email or leave a voice message with the following info:
- first name
- email address
- cell number
- what type session you'd like (mediumship or guidance/tarot)
- what length session (30 minute or 45-60)
If you've already done this, you are on the list.

*I am taking names for in-person sessions only.  Readings are held on Friday's from 3 - 5 in Chantilly, VA.

*If you want a session sooner you may consider contacting Lisa Boslett instead.  She's one of my prior students and now is a full time medium.  She works out of the same office in Chantilly, VA that I do.


I've had some people ask what festivals I'll be doing this fall, but I'm not quite sure yet.  Most of these are juried.  I've applied to several and am waiting to hear whether I can participate or if they already have too many jewelry vendors.  If I made anything else besides jewelry, these shows would be easy to get into, but jewelry vendors are a dime a dozen and most festivals don't want to have too many of one type of vendor.  Some shows are also REALLY expensive to participate in.  These are things I'm learning while trying to sell my pretties!  :/

Depending on the weather, if it doesn't rain, I'll be a vendor at Centreville Day on October 15 from 10am - 4pm.  This is apparently a teeny festival, but it's close to my home, so what the heck.  :D  Come out and keep me company, unless it rains and then I'll be home snuggling with my puppies!

I've also applied to Richmond Craft Mania's Handmade Holiday 2016 on December 3 and 4th and All Crafts Considered in DC at the NPR Building on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 3pm to 8pm.  I'll let you know if I'm accepted to those.

As always, you can always find my jewelry on Etsy at, BUT, in a few days I'll be launching a brand new landing page which will be easy for you to find my jewelry anytime!  I just have to figure out how to connect my domain to the completed website, lol.!   Here's a preview!

As far as everything else, everyone's good.  I haven't, and won't see much of my husband until after the election is over as he works in one of the Virginia's electoral offices and is working TONS of hours trying to get ready.  I think we all can't wait for this election to be over, though.  Am I right??  :D  The boys are good.  Brady is doing well in his classes at NOVA and Bren and I are still riding the Green Day concert high after seeing them play at the 9:30 Club in DC on Monday.  Thanks to the hubby for driving as I'd get hopelessly lost in DC!  The pups are crazy itchy from the change in season, so they've been on Benadryl twice a day with a side treat of coconut oil which seems to be helping.  The Madam is going to the vet probably in the next week or two to have a check up and to see if she's OK to spay.  We've been saving up for it and unfortunately have to do it as female bunnies have an 80% chance of developing uterine cancer.  She's older, so we're a little worried, but it has to be done soon.  Yes, I'll be a wreck!

I think that's it!  I keep forgetting to blog and will try to do so more, but do keep checking back, and if you haven't already please subscribe.  I'll be adding some small classes soon, too!

Have a lovely weekend!
