A new journey.

It's been a very long time since I last posted, and some of you may be wondering "what the heck happened to her?".

Well, I'm going to tell you in my new blog Toni's Road to Recovery. It's not to say I won't be back, but right now I must do this.

Follow me on my new journey! I hope to see you over there...

Final Days of Clearance Sale & Changes

It's been quite a while since I last posted.

No I haven't been contemplating "Lost" and the storyline. Yeah, right!
No, I haven't been in mourning because it's the final season of my favorite tv show "Lost".
No, its not because I've been covered in snow like the rest of the country.

It's because I'm experiencing life changes that are taking up a lot of my time. But, that's life. And it's constantly changing, right?

In the meantime, go shop for great bargains on
my one of a kind, handmade jewelry at Dee-Zigns! It's the final days of my huge clearance sale, many items up to 50% off!

This can't be the end!

I know this is the final season of my favorite tv show, the only tv show I truly can't miss, the only tv show I care about, and there are a hell of a lot of tv shows. But generally, I could care less about watching tv unless its "Lost".

Here are some of the many, many reasons why:

Sawyer - Need I say more? Oh, and he's from Georgia.
Jack - Stop drinking and make an honest woman of Kate.
Kate - You belong with Jack. Juliet needs Sawyer.
Hurley - Dude, love you man!
Charlie - Hurley misses you, dude, and so do I.
Sayid - He's very resourceful.
Locke - Mostly felt sorry for him, except now, he creeps me out.
Claire - I want Charlie to come back, find and marry Claire and raise Aaron.
Sun - She and Jin deserve happiness. Earned my respect after she stood up to her father.
Jin - He's so sweet, loves Sun and learned to speak English.
Desmond - See you in another life, brother! As long as Penny's with you.
Ben - OMG, he is the creepiest of them all. I try to feel sorry for him, but no can do.
Frank - No, you're not going to Guam.
Miles - When's he's not communicating with the dead, he's pretty darn funny!
Richard - Just tell us how old you are!

Smoke monsters, polar bears, spooky cabins, dead people, lots of dead people... what a ride!

You want to cut your hair?

You can imagine my shock when my 12 year old daughter asked for an appointment to get her haircut. Her hair was incredibly long and beautiful and she had been adamant over the years of only having a 1/2 inch cut at the time. She was so darn attached to her very long hair. Getting her to the hair salon was another issue, the whining (Erika), the crying (Erika), the frustration (me!). Pick your battles, they say. Yeah right!

She said she wanted to get about 3 inches cut, so while sitting in the chair, she told our hair stylist she wanted a lot cut off. As I watched Erika showing her how much, I could hardly believe it was more than 3 or 4 inches! I asked if it was enough to send in to Lots of Love, a non profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children. As Debbie, our hair stylist, ran to get a measuring tape, I watched Erika's smile spreading across her sweet face. Yes, there was 8 inches! Let's do it.

Erika was thrilled to get a new look and to donate her hair to help people dealing with cancer and losing their hair.

We ended up sending her "locks" to Pantene Beautiful Lengths beause when we looked up the Locks for Love website and discovered their requirements of 10 inches. But doing a search, we found Patene's website and relieved to discover their requirements were only 8 inches.

I encourage everyone with daughters to always talk about these programs, as its not that difficult, and when your child is ready to do this, they feel so good about themselves!

Mind blowing clearance sale!

I've been house bound for too many days now. Snow fell in Atlanta, Georgia last week, schools closed, activities were cancelled, and people were freaking out. Not because it snowed, it didn't, really that was called sleet, in my opinion. If I can see my grass, its not snow.

Problem was not the "snow" but the ice that crippled our city. Atlantans do not have any business riding around on icy roads. We don't know how to drive on ice, black ice and ice covered hilly roads. The drivers I saw exploring for a
look-see at the "snow" and talking on their damn cell phones, and naturally, not paying attention to the black ice.

Okay, what the heck does all this have to do with a mind blowing clearance sale? Being house bound for 3 entire days makes a person clean closets, re-arrange kitchen cabinets, organize rooms and throw out crap... and while doing so, I kept walking past my jewelry studio thinking about the inventory I need to reduce. So wah-lah, a mind blowing clearance sale with so many of my handmade jewelry items
up to 50% off.

as low as $24
Earrings as low as $12
Bracelets as low as $17.50
and more!

For example, the Belle earrings to the right, originally $48, now at 40% off, sale price $28.80.
The Nahima bracelet to the left, originally $45, now at 50% off, sale price $22.50.

I know the huge holiday shopping season just passed, still, I must remind you the next looming gift buying occasion - Valentine's Day - in 35 days. Easter, Passover, first communions, christenings, graduations and the big one - Mother's Day is right around the corner. Don't hesitate, click now and go shop at Dee-Zigns Jewelry.

Please tell all your friends, family, co workers and anyone else you think would be interested in scoring cool deals on
one of a kind jewelry. Tweet it, post it on your facebook, blog about it or send an email. Help me reduce my inventory!

Happy 2010!

Why must we wait for a new year to make changes?

I ask myself this question every new year's day.
