California Dreaming

Hi, Erkki and I got back Monday from California. We went there for a 7 day event that was all about business. They had a great teen class and Erkki got to meet alot of directors, producers, and several TV and Movie actors/actresses. I got to meet all kinds of people too from Film and Acting to Business CEO's, to Famous Speakers.
Oh and I just remembered when we went to Marshall Sylvers event a few weeks ago there was a man there who had just turned 70 and he climbed Mt. Everest last year when he was 69. Lisa Nichols from The Secret, gave a very moving speech, and of course I loved listening to Mark Victor Hansen again. It was a very fun and exciting week. I came back and discovered that Liisa made a fabulous new bracelet, and some beaded beads. She is soooo creative. We are gearing up for an unbeatable line up of classes for the fall. Make sure you check out the guest teachers too. We have some great talent coming with GREAT projects!

This summer I am noticing that so many people want to make their own gifts for the upcoming holiday season, and that they are very into working with their hands.

August 1st starts a new moon in Leo and I am told it is a great time to start new creative ventures. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which is the center of our solar system. It is the sign of play, creativity, self-expression, romance, and circumstances in which you are the leader or take center stage. Self-expression is vital to experiencing a feeling of wholeness, so find a way to express your authentic self and yes, be creative! For artists, this is a perfect time to start a new project and for you shy types, do something for your eyes only - but do express yourself!

I got this from Lisa Zimmerman an Astrologist I met at the event in California. Her web site is

So it is the perfect time right now to come into Crystal Creations Bead Institute and plan on play and self-expression!

Make it a great day!

Fire Eaters

Hello, Last week Erkki, Liisa and I, all went to a "Turning Point" Seminar. It was in Orlando at the Hyatt. The Hyatt there is a really fun hotel because it is actually inside the Orlando Airport. The seminar was presented by Marshall Sylver, a famous Hypnotist. It was about taking action now.. We had lots of fun and all three of us ate fire... and broke a 10 inch square piece of wood with our hands. I learned about hesitation and follow thru. Now Erkki and I are in LA at a business convention. Mark Victor Hansen will be teaching here and Erkki is excited to meet him. I brought my beading with me. I love to make new projects while I am on the road..Check out the Current Bead and Button Magazine. They published my Paradise Earrings. If you haven't done so already make a pair... they really are fun and easy!

Independence Day

Happy 4th of July 2008!
I am feeling very independent today.

Got back from a seminar in Las Vegas last week. It was a short trip and the seminar was from 7:30 in the morning till 9:00 at night. The first night I got there about 8:30 pm and after traveling all day, plus waking up at about 5:00 that morning (more on that later) I rushed to see Cirque du Soliel. It was great! The next two nights I made my way to the strip to check it out. Even though I was tired I really wanted to experience Las Vegas. All in all the trip was great, the seminar was great and I only lost about $50.00 to the wheel of fortune. Next to beading I think I love education, motivation, and inspiration best. Last Month I went to a Mark Victor Hansen seminar in California. I rediscovered him from a very old set of tapes I had from my Mary Kay days! Yes I sold Mary Kay before I sold real estate, which is what I did just before my beading adventure. So I went to Mark's seminar and have to say it is one of the best things I have done for myself in a long time. I feel extremely happy to have reconnected to something else that really feeds my soul.

Now about that waking up at 5:00 am. I figured out that from 4:00 pm on I operate on 3/4's energy till I would reawake at 11:00 pm and then stay up till 1:00 or so...
I decided to try Ben Franklin's early to bed, early to rise and hope it makes me healthy, wealthy, and wise! The goal was to wake up at 5:00 am and be to work by 6:00and then try to get done around 4:00. So far so good... Unless I go to Las Vegas... and wake up at 5:00 but go to bed at 2:00.

From Mark Victor Hansen "The size of your thinking equals the size of your results"
Go out and Make it a great day!
