Changes for the New Year...

Hi Everyone,

These wishes come late, but I hope each of you had a wonderful Holiday season and wishing each of you a Happy Happy and prosperous New Year.

This year I'm having to make some changes and reflections on how to stay above the water and keep things on track. Girls Night Out, was a blast and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting each of you and sharing and traveling the world. However, for now I can no longer continue to keep up two active blogs with my current life's challenges.

My intentions is to keep the blog active, and use it as an extension of my original blog Runako Designs and do some occasional special features throughout the year. I will continue to recognize and feature new designers and special things I run across on my Runako blog, and link to Girls Night out for those special events that are deserving of a space of their very own, like trips to far away places, Business Expos, blog parties and special features.

Each of you are very welcome to follow Runako Designs where you'll be able to keep up with what's happening on Girls Night Out and where we'll be able to stay in touch. I value each of your following and appreciate the support during the months we were hanging out and having fun!

Best wishes to each and everyone of you and I hope to see you next door!

I wonder if big corporate cares anymore.....Apologies for the Station Break in Posts, but my internet service has been down for three days and the provider appeared to be dragging their feet on getting things repaired on their end....again!! So in trying to catch up, things will not be back to normal until Monday's post. I'll try to find some quick fun for the weekend . Happy Friday!!

Monday's Mesmerizer - Chocolate and Champagne

I tumbled across yet another mesmerizer today. I put in a search for holiday glass and this is what popped up! The beads are handmade and simply gorgeous. This was found at a little Etsy shop called Java Beads. Java beads is a collaboration of Lampwork bead artists, Fuser and designers who sell beads, jewelry and findings all in one location. Stop by Java Beads and see what other goodies they have, I'm bookmarking this one as a favorite!

Thursday's Thought...Time To Shop!!

She's a free spirit, she's a rock, she's a survivor, a dreamer, a doer and a listener...she's your girlfriend! And what do girlfriends do? They talk about life, laugh, cry, reflect on the past and they share thoughts. Grab a glass of coffee and leave a comment or two. For today's thought... Dee says..

It's Shopping Time Girls!!

That's right! The Holiday's is just around the corner...literally! Can you believe it's already November? I was at the bookstore today and the lady in front of me was buying Santa really dawned on me at that moment, that I need to get my self in high gear and finish my shopping list.

This year, I'm committed to purchasing handmade gifts or making gifts myself. There are so many unique items available right online, I could probably do it all from the comfort of my desk and computer. The quality is better in most cases, the products are unique and I have so many choices to choose from. The other factor that is swaying my opinion these days is that in most cases, believe it or not....I've found handmade to be less expensive and better made! And if I made my purchase through Artfire and Etsy, I get a deal on shipping.

Join me this weekend on Girls Night Out, I'll be going on a Shopping Spree and sharing my unique finds with you!

Tuesday's Treasure - Why Not Brag About It!

Why not brag about something special, with these sterling silver treasures. I found these great gift ideas over at what else... Brag About It on Etsy. You can have her custom make something special for you or someone else. Why not give something unique and distinct for the holiday's and say it with a memory. My favorite by far is My Family Tree featured below.

Visit this great shop and find something special to brag about, then follow her on Facebook to keep in touch with what's new, make sure you let her know you're a girl friend from GNO!
