California Here I Come....

Well, I've been to California and Now I am Back!!!

As well as being an Interior Designer, I am starting a new charity venture 
I am excited to share with you.  It will be called "Reside with Respect".  In Charlotte, NC alone, have over 4,000 homeless children due to so many homeless mothers.  RWR will help these women furnish homes for their families, once they get jobs, get a place to live and get off the streets.   I am so excited about this new venture. I got the idea for this charity from "Dwell With Dignity" based in Dallas. To make this dream a reality, I am working with a new direct sales start up company, called bamboopink!  Owned by Deb Millar, Frances Gadbois and Jude Steele, this California company sells beautifully made designer "fashion" jewelry.  Nothing in the line is over $100.  It was introduced in April 2011.  The company had a leadership conference last week and I was one of the lucky winners invited to participate due to my team building ability.  What a great time!  Corporate really went all out to entertain and train all of us!   I have just returned and want to share some highlights of my trip with all of you...

Here are Frances and Jude with the east coast girls, all of whom
 were freezing because we didn't realize how cold it
was at the beach in California this time of the year!
Also, notice how we all had on bright colors!
