Miatta and Sawyer

Miatta and Sawyer

There are a lot of changes going on in the land of Lunasa Designs! Some changes are really, really good; like my sister Mara and her Husband Ryan finally getting their little girls, Miatta and Nowai, from Liberia! {Miatta is pictured with my son Sawyer - her new cousin}.

Other changes are not so good at the moment. Like many, many Americans right now, we are feeling the affects of the recession. My husband lost his job in November due to downsizing. At first we were excited about moving (we're wandering fools at heart) and excited about new opportunities for him. Two months later, with no job in sight, we're starting to panic.

I'm not sure what this means for Lunasa Designs at the moment. I'm feeling at my most creative right now and am motivated to make my business work... But I have no idea where we'll be moving or when - or if our new place will support a studio and business. I'm feeling sad about the prospect of closing down. I'm just trying to take it one day at a time - and while I have Scott home to help with the kids, I'm creating, creating, creating...
At least I'll have a stockpile of jewelry while we are packing and moving - whenever that shall be.

Here's hoping for bigger and better things to come our way!
Peace and love to all.

I really understand your's hard not to know what the future holds or where to go from here. Someone once told me to just stand tall weather the storm...keep creating..keep moving.
