It has just been recently that I have realized have a special connection to the number 56.

I was born in ’56. One of my favorite vehicles is a ’56 Ford truck that my friend in Pasadena lovingly brought back to life.   The number of our house is 56.  And I will be 56 this year.

It’s a very special year, with many  “round” events.  Two of my girlfriends turn 50 this year, three other good friends turn 40, Jamaica is celebrating 50 years of independence, the Olympics are on this year in London, it will be 10 years since my son died, 50 years since my biological mother passed, 60 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, 40 years of Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

It is the Chinese year of the dragon.  (You KNOW I had to have a dragon necklace in my new upcycled jewellery collection which I call LUCKY DOZEN.)

It’s truly a special year!

In celebrating 56, I am going to hold a series of sales for the rest of the year on Etsy.

On the 5th and 6th of the every month, all products will be entitled to 11% off.
