A Milestone Reached

     I have been a member of a wonderful Guild on for newbies entitled Shops with Less Sales.  It is a great place to make friends while learning how to network and promote online.  To be a part of this guild you must have less than 15 sales and be willing to promote each member of  the guild online.  Active participation is key to being a member and is the key to success in the Guild.  Well, I've reached my 15th sales and it is time to move on.  I really hate to leave because I have met so many talented and wonderful people who were always friendly and most helpful and willing to answer questions and give tips.  I want to say THANK YOU!  I would  also like to give a special THANK YOU to our fearless  leader and Guild Master, Kim of Virgina Beach Quilter who keeps it all together. 

      In parting I wanted to go out promoting the members of the Guild so I put this lovely collection together in their honor.  The name of the collection is "IT'S THE SHOPS WITH LESS THAN. . . .THAT'S ALL!   To learn more about this wonderful Guild check out their blog at:

Happy New Years from Designed by Audrey

I would first like to say Happy New Years to all and wish you blessings, peace and the prosperity of God in the coming year.  It is God who gives us the ability to gain wealth and the wonderful thing is, he adds no sorrow to it.  So many have great wealth, great influence, or a great job, but no lasting peace.  So, my first order of business is to give thanks to God through Jesus Christ who gives me the  ability to do the things I do.   Yes, I create and sell jewelry on the web part time, but my walk with Christ is the center of my life.  This is why each day I rise I ask God to bless and establish the good works of my hands and to set my path for the day.  I stay grounded in the word daily by reading my Bible.  I also listen to and love the podcast which is an awesome way to go through the Bible yearly -- this starts my third year with them.  And of course, there is the Daily Bread which is a wonderful daily devotion! 

I'm not perfect, but I am seeking the perfect will of God for my life daily.  So, I end my first blog of 2011 with thanksgiving in my heart and excitement to see what this year holds!
