About Me

My mission is to inspire beginners to be the best writers that they can be, using correct spelling and grammar.  One of my pet peeves is to read something that is chock full of spelling or grammar errors.  Especially if it’s something that I’ve paid for.  Mistakes on the page have always been obvious to me and seem to jump off the page.  I would love to see all writers become more diligent with spelling, grammar and proofreading.

Welcome to my site!  About meMy name is Dawn and I am the mom of 3 children, spanning 2 generations!  I’ve worked in corporate jobs, been a stay at home mom, been a working single parent and a foster parent.  Currently I am working part time to help support our family so that my husband can finally chase his dream.  He’s presently attending art school, taking 3D Animation & Modelling and eventually wants to work at an animation studio.

I have been on a work from home journey since about 2000.  I’ve looked at a lot of different opportunities:  stuffing envelopes (I know, right?!), home party businesses, networking companies, mlm’s, affiliate marketing, selling blogging systems.  You name it, I’ve heard of it and probably tried it.  I’ve made a few dollars here and there, but nothing consistent enough to support my family with.  I used to say that I failed at a lot of things, I now say that I’ve learned a lot along the way – what works for me and what doesn’t work for me.  And I am still searching.

I have discovered a cycle with my search for a work from home income.  I find something that someone I like is doing (and succeeding at) and I think it could work for me.  I sign up, pay the fees, buy in to the program and …. nothing!  Once I realize that I have to go out and sell this to people, I lose interest.  The main reason is that I’ve been trying to use someone else’s passion for my own success.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing and often dreamed of writing a great novel one day.  I’ve lacked the confidence required to put myself out there like that.  However, I found that I really enjoy blogging and find it not nearly as intimidating!

This blog has changed over the course of the last few years, but I’ve found my focus now!  This will be a place for me to showcase my one of a kind, hand wrapped by me, pendants.  Most of the stones that I use have been collected and tumbled by me from the Fraser River in BC, Canada.

I have also created a freelance writing career.  Stay tuned, as this is a new venture for me!

My entrepreneurial spirit is still very strong and I am still on this journey.  Connect with me on my personal facebook page, as well as my fan page.  I look forward to getting to you know you better.
