Great BLOG Donna .. Looking forward to seeing more 😊


I am going to love following your blog. Love that you share your thoughts, dreams, and your excitement for jewelry making. Some of you issues or concerns are the same as mine. I am so glad you're doing something that makes you happy and wish you luck in the BALC. I learned a lot and I am still learning. I too am planning my spring look different then before.

Thanks for sharing Looking forward to your next blog. Cindy

Lol! True, every word you said is true. I have some issues with allowing time for myself where I don't feel guilty. I've got a blog that pretty much just sits there but, one of these fine days ( this year) I'm going to get it up! I also spend time helping my mom and handicapped brother. Life takes up time but, I think me time is life too, and an important part of it. Thanks for reminding me!

Great blog Donna. You have such a great attitude. We can either overcome obstacles or let them trip us up. Getting my etsy store going is my biggest obstacle right now. You are an inspiration.

Maude Everill

Loved reading your story! Although we didn't live on a farm, we had a cat who "dumped" her share of litters, haha! Never heard that expression before, LOL!!

Your a natural with this blog thing Donna.

Mary Reckmeyer

Great Blog! You are so right, Happy or Crappy, we are in control and decide that for ourselves. Caretaking is hard work...I am glad you have something for you.


We have a construction business so the visual I get is a memory of my son, when he was about two or so, driving (pushing) the Tonka dump truck around the living room with a load full of puppies and dumping them out. He must have moved those puppies back and forth across that living room a dozen times lol They grew up together, lots of love there. Great post Donna!

I really look forward to following your adventures :)
Now if I could just get my stuff together...

Teresa Schurter

What a blessing that attitude is to all who are around you. It comes through! Your joy is contagious & your decision is perfect. I've learned through all of life's trials not just "to be content," but to look for the joy that is to come, even if your worktable ends up being a corner in a closet. You've truly been blessed w/ B'Sue & her gift of giving.

I am so glad your going to be in the BALC class with me. You have a natural talent and I think I'll learn a lot from you and the other members of class, in addition to Brenda teaching it. This is a great blog and it doesn't matter where you make, just as long as your making and it makes you happy.

Donna Parry

Many thanks to all of you for such kind, encouraging comments. We are all walking down a similar path. Talking with you is like talking with my friends.

Sue Shade

Donna, Donna, Donna, what an inspiration! Love your blog and your sharing with us. Don't worry, have faith, it will all come together. You are already off to a great start. I started making jewelry when I was eight years old and now professionally, 33 years, and the dream hasn't dimnished at all (you'd be surprised at all the junk I have, and love!). Especially with someone like Brenda Sue by your side, you just can't do anything else but succeed. Enjoy this venture/journey, enjoy it without ANY pressure, just shear joy; the joy of designing, creating, expressing yourself, letting go, and enjoying all the fruits of your spirit. Best to you!
