~Hello October~

October already.  What happened to June, July, August and September? I really thought life would slow down as we got older.  It hasn't.  The merry-go-round just seems to have taken on a ridiculous speed.   I haven't posted since May.  I just couldn't.  I found myself missing my Mom more than ever.  It made me step back and reflect..... where am I going?  What do I want to do with the days I have left on this earth?  Am I on the path I want to be on?   I DO know that I love what I do, and that is creating designs for my jewelry business:   RoseCreekCottage.  Turning a passion into a career is truly a blessing.  I thank God for it every day.  This is my latest creation in my Remembrance  jewelry,  in honor of my sweet Mom:

So.... Hello October! My favorite part of the year. It brings sweaters and jeans, cool crisp air, picking apples at Patterson's to bake into homemade sauce, crisps and pies. And there's apple cider with cinnamon sticks in the crockpot, this fall's first pot of chili simmering on the stove .....the fall shows (yes....I miss them...sometimes!).  The cooler temperatures and of course....the brilliance of the fall leaves. I love it all.

Rosie and I are in the studio very early again these days, preparing for the upcoming Holiday Season.  Seems we can never be too prepared for what's ahead.  New designs are flooding every cell of my brain...and my hands just can't seem to work fast enough.  Remembering all the blessings....and all the many Angels I have been blessed with resulted in the following design......a collage necklace simply called, "My Angels". There's lots of room for  spouses, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, pets....and angels:

I'm headed off to bed.  Morning comes way too soon these days....and Rosie sits anxiously in the doorway to the studio watching me pour my first cup of coffee WAY too early.  So...sweet dreams~  Carol and Rosie~

I LOVE that remembrance jewelry. It is my favorite. LOVE it.

I can not imagine the day I lose my mom. I don't know what I'll do.
Sending hugs and prayers of comfort your way.
