A common expression we often hear is that "Peole come into our lives for a reason, a seson, or a lifetime". We especally hear this when someone has passed on or when a relationships comes to an end. What ever the situation, how ever long the time, the people you meet, the people you are around, the people that come and go in and out of your life leaves an impression on you which brings about a change ... you are never the same.
In our lifetime, there are always people who leave their mark within us. Whatever kind of mark they leave, whether it is good or bad, these people seem to affect our lives in one way or another. The affect may be great joy or great pain. But generally speaking, people come into our lives for a reason. Some times, it could be that they are here to help us solve a problem, teach us a lesson, teach us more abut ourselves. Sometimes people pass in and out of our lives very quickly, others are friends for a lifetime. These are friends to be cherised. These are the people who grow and learn with us and continue to inspire us and make our lives more interesting, creating a greater depth wthin us.
I had a very close frined in High School; she was quite pretty, very bright, intelligent ... in fact she was the school Valedictorian! I was more social and considered that aspect of my life more important than studying. In our senior year we had a Biology class together. My beautiful, intelligent friend tutored me through and I got a B+ and she of course got an A. That one class made a big impact on my life. I found out that studying could be fun and rewarding. Infact, when I went to college I got on the Dean's List for good grades. Imagine that! To this day I love learning, reading and gaining new knowledge.
How about you, have you had someone in your life that made an impact on you that actually turned you around from the direction you were going ... be it good or bad?
We can all learn from each other ... it would be great if you would share your experience and in turn you will be impacting our lives!

Is anyone else like me? .... Where has January gone? I was determined to get off to a good start, but January is almost over and I am not even caught up with 2009. Actually it is a good thing because my business has kept been to busy to 'get organized' ... but there is so much I want todo and I feel should be done. And, one of the things is to give some attention to my poor, sad, blog. But, I am determined, I will get there .... maybe in February ... anyone else out there that is feeling the same way?

Where have the days gone? 11 days into the New Year and it seems like it is buzzing by. Between the Sewing Machine and the Computer it seems like there is little time for anything else. My goal is to Get Organized ...... I am trying, I am trying, but it seems like I am just putting out fires.
My mind is swarming with new ideas for my website: www.overythetopaprons.com .... adding some new products, bringing in a very skilled artist who make beautiful TuTus and that is just a beginning.
And of course with each new year it means getting your tax information ready and facing the reality of profit or no profit ....(lets just hope it is profit!)
Is anyone else feeling like the 2010 is getting away from you and yet it is just starting? I would love to hear from you and how you are approaching the New Year? Suggestions? Advice? I know you all have a lot of experience and a lot to share and I am always open to learning! Drop a note and let me know how you are doing!

Welcome to a New Year ... 2010 ... Welcome to a New Start!
The last few months of 2009 went by so fast that I just never seemed to get over to this blog ... unfortunately, it has been badly neglected. But it is a new year, a new start, and I am looking forward to 2010 to get things back on track.
How was 2009 for all of you? Great? Good? Went too fast? Drop me a note, it is always fun to know what is going on with you,
