A New Beginning.....

It certainly has been quite a while since I have been able to post anything on my blog.  Life has been full of many challenges and struggles lately and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

First of all - I moved from Washington State and am now living in Medford, Oregon.  It was a huge leap of faith for me and it's been quite the journey thus far.  I have been off work since February 24th and am now unemployed.  It's a long story but one full of many life lessons.  One of which is having honesty and integrity doesn't always mean things turn out the way they should but at least I can look at myself in the mirror everyday and that is priceless to me.  And now I am moving on to new adventures and challenges and I have never been happier. 

I have been in Oregon a week now and I love how much slower life is here.  I no longer have to spend precious time stuck in traffic jams.  It takes only a few minutes to run to the store and get back home again.  Wow - I love it!!  My sister Dana and I will be moving into a two bedroom apartment at the end of June and we are excited about that too.

I now have my own craft booth in a business called Awstruck Collectibles which is located in the main mail in Medford.  I have been busy making many new things so that my sister and I can get the booth decorated and ready for business early this coming week.  It feels like a huge responsibility and yet it is exciting at the same time.  I have taken some photos of my booth and will post them as soon as I can.  And of course, I will post before and after photos!!

Lots of new changes coming soon here on my blog as well as at my Etsy store and new craft booth.


  1. Laine - was so good to hear you are doing okay - getting settled into a new town is always exciting and I wish you luck with your new craft store in the mall. Can't wait to see the pictures.

  2. So glad to "hear" from you! Will pray God's blessings and guidance with the new venture and a life full of great things!

  3. Welcome back Laine! I hope that you and your sister get settled in nicely, good luck with the craft booth, how exciting!
