September 9, 2015


We were up early in the morning to get on a train and before it was even lunchtime, we were in Niagara Falls. Believe it or not, we have a hotel room that looks right over the falls! We could sit in two chairs in front of the window and watch that impressive sight all day long. As if that wasn't enough, we decided to do the walk behind the falls. I found it quite scary to be in the tunnels deep under rock and under waters! Still, it was amazing, especially being on this lookout where it was almost impossible to get a picture because we were being so sprayed! You can see in this photo just what a great time we're having.


My computer arrived!!!! It has been so long since I've had a new one, and I am so excited to be upgrading. Hopefully it's fun (and fast!) to set up! has the Shibumi stamp of approval so it's already a win.


I officially launched the store yesterday and already sold three items! So far two pendants and a pair of earrings. I am not sure the bags I bought are going to sell but I do love having them in my store for variety and if they don't sell, I get to keep them. It has all been very exciting!

Shannon, I am so thrilled you have a new computer! And if Shibumi likes it well… Yes, I hope it is a fun project for you and way to go, a smart investment for sure.

Sorry I have been MIA. With the situating going on with Reg, I have been very distracted and things have been thrown out of whack.

Shannon said...

Congratulations Suzie! I think it is so amazing that you have the store up and running, and already had multiple sales on your first day. How exciting!!! Everything looks so amazing. I am so happy for you :) *hugs*

And no worries on MIA-ness, you have a lot going on and I'm impressed you'd been able to post. Take each day as it comes :)
