She is glittering up ...


For a Bella good time...!!!!!. It has been two years since i went to silver bella and really am excited to at least attend as a vendor ... the first time I went I launched my business and so attending this event is a really sentimental thing for me ..and i have been thinking alot lately about where i am going , changes i need to make for me to grow as a person and for my business.... .my journey has been so wonderful this last 2 years full of more excitiment and joy then i could have ever imagined .... I have had to open myself up and put myself out there so many times...and its scary... almost frightening sometimes ... but..... in doing so have met some very WONDERFUL people along the way... I have gotten to journey to foreign lands ..I have gotten to DREAM BIG ... but have also had to BE very BRAVE in my journey .... I have had many ups and downs learning how to run a business like a girl .... But is has been so worthwhile .... I have no idea where my journey will continue to go ... I have lots of HOPES and DREAMS for where I will continue .... but I realize I can't do it alone... I like many other she's out there like to have a lot of control over my everyday business things ... and i am realizing more then ever that is time to LET GO ... time for CHANGE.... time for me to be BRAVE and let DESTINY continue to guide my JOURNEY..... to put my fear aside and HAVE A LITTLE FAITH .... I have been thinking alot lately after reading lots of other she's blogs about my business and opening myself to new friends...new dreams , new paths .... I am not one who does well with change ... I hate it ... and fight it every step of the way .... but i am LEARNing that CHaNgE is GOOD !!!!! and that I love my JOURNEY !!!!!! I am sooooo ready for whatever next BIG thing may come along ... so here I come ... ready or not... ... putting myself out there.. wearing my HEART for the world to SEE ... just remember I am LEARNING TO FLY ...
until next time,
xo

Hey Beth -
Really enjoyed your post. I like you struggle with some of the same things, but have a tendency to be one that bares her soul, is an open book and loves to meet new people and make new friends. In the blogging world there are a lot of wonderful women, as well in the junking world that I am part of too.
I have followed your blog/journey off and on for a little over a year and have always loved your personal style. You are such a creative lady.
Fun thing to share with you is that I am also a jewelry designer, and my style is much different, but I always notice jewelry on people. I was working up at our shop that I sell in, and a gal I know through the business was there with her son, and I noticed her necklace. It was one of yours! She said she had bought it on etsy, and I said, "it's Beth Quinns". She said, yes, how'd you know. And I said, I could recognize her great pieces anywhere. It was the first I'd seen in person, so was very cool.
Have a great time at Silver Bella. I hope to get there one day, and have conversed via email back and forth with Karla. Enjoy your time away, and open yourself up to all God has in store for you.
Gretchen

So special of you to share honestly what's on your heart. You are an amazing woman and it's been delightful to watch you grow over this past year. Most importantly that though your business is flourishing you continue to stay so sweet and kind. I feel fortunate to know you. Spread your wings and fly!!
XOXO

Yes, change is hard, but wonderful too.....we always think the worst is going to happen when really the best things can happen, we try to write our own story and sometimes we need to let our lives un-fold....

You go, Beth! Have a wonderful time at Silver Bella (I'm hoping to go next year) p.s. I just love what you've been making, oh, my!

Diana said...

Your dollies are wonderful, Beth!! I love the bling! Congratulations on all of your successes and taking chances. By taking risks, being open to change and trusting in the process, miracles happen in our lives. So stand back, sit tight, and wait to see where your adventure takes you next. I am confident it will be an excellent experience. You are so talented and people love your artwork!
Hugs

Maybe change is the gentle nudge ( or push!) of the Universe reminding you how special you are? We need it to grow, to be inspired, to BE better than we are now. I'm experiencing a big change myself, and part of that change was contacting you a few weeks ago, Beth! Thank you so much. So journey on dear one, and enjoy every single skip and hop and jump along the way!!

These little gals are soooo cute. I love them. Love the blog as well. I've linked to you.

Angie Muresan said...

Oh my dear Lord, I am in heaven! Here via Rochambeau, and so glad of it. I can spend an entire hour happily perusing your beautiful, breathtaking designs, and it wouldn't be enough.
Congratulations and much success to you! And now, I must go salivate some more and figure out how to stretch my budget to get some of that gorgeousness.

Gretchen said...

Hi Beth- So glad to hear you had a great time at Silver Bella. I hope to get there some day, but this was not to be the year.
You just contacted me via my blog, but I'm unable to direct link to your email, and since I don't know it I'm trying this instead. Please shoot me an email when you have time and I will fill you in on Junk Bonanza.
