sneak peak - Punch Drunk recycled wine cork jewelry

Here's a sneak peak at my new jewelry line with recycled corks and recycled steel. I've named these little babies Punch Drunk.

(yes, after my recent behavior - I blame the wine I've had to consume testing these out - yes, this stuff is hard work, folks - don't hate me)

I ordered these adorable laser cut tags from Ana at All This Wood and love them.

With ocean blue for strength, passionate pink for joy, purple berry for clarity, orange creamsicle for creativity and pistachio green for abundance - they make great little totems for our focus and wonderful gifts to share strength, joy, clarity, creativity and abundance with others - plus they are kick-ass cool, recycled, stackable and fun!

Coming to my online stores and (fingers crossed) a favorite winery near you. I'll pop back in with a coupon code when these beauties are available! xo all

Astrology Forecast for Creatives - Week of January 26th - dissolving creative boundaries

Monday's void Taurus Moon says roll up your sleeves and get your work done early! Then take the rest of the day off! A Taurus Moon loves comfort and ease, so if you need to make some real headway on a project keep your to-do list visible and hold yourself accountable to it.

On Tuesday, Venus joins Mars in dreamy Pisces and our attraction will be to gentler people and places - I'm thinking warm jammies and mac and cheese - we are expecting a blizzard. 

In Pisces our Venus ruled love, money and values drift past all boundaries. The sky truly is the limit! Where is Pisces in your natal chart? Sun sign Pisces will be especially attractive and we will all fall in love with something or someone, maybe for the second time, we are in a "re-do" period!

I know the captain always goes down with her ship but maybe the ship doesn't have to go down with the captain ....

It's a good idea to have procedures in place for our businesses in case of an emergency. Start with something simple.

Make a list of email addresses, accounts, passwords, automatic message responses, phone forwarding or remote phone message access - whatever someone else would need to know to take care of, postpone, cancel or dial things down for us if necessary.

Use my emergency procedure form to get started. You can decide how detailed you need this to be.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius Jan 21-Feb 11, 2015

All the Mercury Retrogrades in 2015 will be in air signs.

This means they will be more about communication breaking down than actual appliances. This month it's in Aquarius and Aquarius rules the internet, so computers, cell phones (I dropped mine yesterday and shattered the screen), Kindles, etc are fair game.

It's important to relook at emails before hitting send, review materials being submitted to clients and bosses, rethink that thing we are about to say that might hurt someone's feelings - you get the idea.

The "re's" rule now. Life is giving us permission to regroup - let's take it.

(the biggest no-no is signing a contract now - postpone these kind of iron clad commitments because we will want to revise things later and this might not be possible)

Was planning to write more - but I am down with the stomach flu - be back soon! xo (through one of those biohazard masks, of course) all

New Moon in Aquarius - January 20th, 2015 - Reinventing the "flock"

get 10% off this month with coupon code POLARITY
Today the Capricorn Sun passes the baton to Aquarius - OK, we've done the work - now let's make it work for all of us.

The Sun moves into Aquarius and the Moon follows.

This is the 4th zero degree New Moon since November. This means we move through the entire 30 degree cycle of Aquarius in 30 days, just as we did with Capricorn, Sagittarius and Scorpio. This makes the whole month a bit more intense and emotional, especially for Aquarius renowned for her detachment.

ALL ABOARD the train leaves the station! uh, sort of ... Astrology Forecast for Creatives - Week of January 19th -

say hey crystal photos
I am going to nix the daily reports in favor of weekly

(although this week I will pop back in with the New Moon & Mercury Retrograde posts)

to get back on track with the goals for my jewelry business and my meditation practice and I've got some business stuff I want to write.

Once I write the daily forecast my brain goes, "OK, writing's done" - it's like a switch I can't flip back and I can't write anything else. Even my to-do lists have been all in my head - a very precarious place for anything these days. I think the weeklys will be better for planning and manifesting anyway.

Is this procrastination or preparation? - Astrology for Creatives, Friday January 16th

I received two promotional emails yesterday from coach bloggers about how to stop procrastinating. I guess they are hearing from people who are having trouble getting $hit done.

This is perfectly normal because 1. it's not really the new year until spring, most of us are still kind of hibernating and 2. the astrology has felt like we are driving our car with the parking brake engaged PLUS we are in the waning crescent moon phase and 3. baby, it's cold outside

(and now I am thinking about Bill Cosby - that song has been ruined for me forever)
