Big thanks to everyone for your comments and advice !!! We where all ready to move to Michigan and then Mom said no and she was the deciding force as it is her home. I trust the universes so much in all I do as everything happens for a reason and when one door closes others always open .And open they DID !! As of my last post we where still in Bisbee as the our condo was and IS still not repaired!!! We keep feeling that we are meant to move out of Santa fe . The morning after Mom said no , I went for my walk with the dogs which took me downtown Bisbee . As I walked along I passed by this cute old building and noticed a new for rent sign in the window ? My thought was we could never afford the rent for this place but I called any way for fun. WOW it was affordable and we where first in line. WE took a leap of faith and rented the place. The next few days we also found I cute old house within our budget to rent . After a week long trip back to Santa Fe to check on the condo repairs which are NOT progressing .We where able to have the insurance company pay for our move to Bisbee !! Our things are in storage as we do not get the house rental till April . I can only feel that this is meant to be as it just flowed into place . Cal is working on doing stuff to the shop as it has a little room in the back that will be my mess making studio .The shop will carry antiques and art and I will have a small teaching studio offering on going weekend classes both short and long. Tons of cute boutique hotels are everywhere for those who might want to make a trip and take a workshop. Bisbee is well worth the 1 1/2 hour drive from Tuscon as it is so historic and a creative visual meca oh and the airport does offer a shuttle once here everything is within walking distance! I can hardly wait to teach a watercolor journaling class here . Tiny tin roofed victorian houses and old run down miners shacks cover Bisbee's steep hills and tons and steps lead you everwhere - soooo cute. The town gets a fair amount of tourist trade on the weekends and is so unique and cute as a button yet Funky as HECK !!! Perfect for my ex hippie hubby and my free artistic spirit!! As we get a bit more settled in I plan to start a new BLISS BEE blog , that the name of our store . I welcome any ideas and what ever .Wish us luck !!! Oh and p.s. last fall my computer died and it just DID IT AGAIN !!! So I am using Cal's Mac but have no access to my files or old photos . Always by the Apple protection plan as it is well worth the cost !!!
