A Familiar Face Joins Claudia and Company

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday! I am so glad you are here!

I am thrilled to bring you some exciting news!

This has been quite the year for me. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been cutting back on extras that take time away from what is most precious to me... my family. I see that all this has been preparation for other things that God has planned for me; as the days and weeks go by, I see that more and more. While  I've known in my heart that I want to spend more time with my kiddies, I now know that God has been paving the way for me. My sweet Sammy, who just turned 3, will need special kind of attention. We don't yet know to what extent; we will know more on December 5th, when he has an appointment with a neurologist.

I've been praying for our future as a family and the future of my business. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, God revealed something completely different; something I am very happy with.

With that being said... allow me to introduce to you Claudia and Company's new store administrator:

I've known Margie since the very beginning days of my little store; she has been a design team member, and a wonderful friend. I even love that we share the joys of raising boys! I am over the moon excited to be able to work with Margie again!

Margie will be assisting me in a lot of administrative aspects of the store: on the blog, on Facebook, with the newsletter, and eventually she will learn the shopping cart side of the store as well; that alone is a huge undertaking, especially around CHA time... which is fast approaching! Eek! Margie's new role will free up a lot of time for me to be with my family; I am so grateful for that.

Please join me in giving Margie a warm welcome!
