I wanted to share what I do on the date of my birth every year. Because it is a "new year" for me as I'm one year older and beginning a whole year around the sun at this age until the next time, I use this day as my "New Year". I don't celebrate January 1st as the new year in the typical way, but traditionally we do still celebrate it and it IS a new calendar year. That's why I started giving myself a new set of goals, resolutions and dreams to shoot for starting on September 22nd instead of January 1st. It's a new year for me!
And of course the Autumnal Equinox is on September 22nd. The first official day of Fall. My favorite definition comes from thefreedictionary.com: "Astronomy: the point, lying in the constellation Virgo, at which the sun's ecliptic intersects the celestial equator". It's no wonder I like to design suns, moons and stars and my favorite colors are those we find in the fall season. I was born during a magical time of year.
Because I love any reason to celebrate and I'm so very grateful for all the love I receive all year round, I'm sending any folks who purchase an item starting today, September 20th through October 18th (expires at midnight PST) a $5.00 off "Thank You Coupon Code" for any item $60 or more on their next purchase. Once you make your purchase, you will receive an email with your special Coupon Code!
As I was looking through a box filled with mosaic wall art, I found my old studio sign that I made in 2009! It made me see how far I've come in teaching myself how to mosaic and what tess I like to use the most. Much fell off around the outer edge but there is always something in the studio to replace the empty spaces with!
Another gentle reminder of the fund raiser still going on to help me keep my online business going without too many hiccups or heartaches. If you can donate, please do. If you can't, it's okay; trust me I understand! Struggling with such a limited income myself makes it hard to be able to donate to all of the people who ask for one. Some are much more deserving or have a much more dire situation than I do.
In return for your donation if it's in the Reward Level Range ($25-$300), you will receive a mosaic made especially for you as a Thank You gift.
And now it's time to get this 59th Year into gear! Enjoy your weekend! Cheers!!
