Holiday Greetings from Jay King!
I’m home at my Florida house this week. I have an early morning routine while I’m here. I’m an early riser and love this time of day when I can enjoy the peace and quiet. This morning I’m having a cup of coffee looking out over the small lake in my backyard. Every morning I’m greeted by Elvis, our local alligator. I named him Elvis because he comes by every morning about the same time and gives me a big toothy grin like he’s saying, ”Good morning! I’m up too.” I’m not sure but I think he might be a vegetarian; the other morning I watched as four ducks flew in and almost landed on his back and all he did was just float along with them. It’s the small things in life, like this, that really make it worth living.
As I get older I seem to reflect more on the little things in life. I can find humor in almost any situation. This morning I was thinking about all that has gone on this year and how fast it all seemed to slip by. Sometimes it’s good to just take time to stop and smell the roses. I guess I’m most grateful for everyone who has helped me and supported me throughout my life. I’m always amazed at how funny life can be, at times. You start on one path and end up somewhere totally unexpected. I think that is what I love about traveling. You start out on one path and you never know with who or where you’re going to end up. I love this part of my life.
I thought I would give thanks to all of those that make it possible for us to have jewelry to sell on HSN. In this blog I have included some pictures of Santa’s Workshop making sure the December show arrives on time at HSN. I hope you will enjoy seeing some of the faces of the people that make Mine Finds by Jay King successful!
I’m getting ready to take off again this week and will be gone for the rest of the month; coming back just in time to do my final event of the year. I’ll be on-air the 29th and 30th, and wrapping up December on the 31st. Then I’ll start celebrating the New Year and get ready to kick the tires and light the fires for 2012. This is going to be a great show and we have a great Today’s Special. It’s big and bold and I feel one of the most unusual designs I have to offer this year. The November event was fantastic and the new shell inlay bowls were a huge hit. So thanks to all of you who helped make it a great success. I have so many new Mine Finds and end-of-year deals to show you, I just can’t wait. I hope you’ll have a chance to see them on the show.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and thanks for taking the time to support us and for sharing your thoughts and ideas.
See you at the end of the month.
