I have to admit, I’m absolutely loving this year's must-have fashions...As Jayne always says, it is back to pretty! Crochet is so much fun, and it’s everywhere this season! It reminds me of being back in high school with my crochet sweaters, so I guess fashion is really cyclical! I dare say, I cannot really pull out my old sweater, but there is a lot to have fun with from our LCNY crochet shrug to our top designers like George Simonton who use it as an accent on lots of tops.
Crochet is also used as an accent on handbags, sandals, headband... Continue Reading

For a lot of us, this is the week our kids go to a summer camp...
I remember Susan Graver always telling me about getting her three kids ready for camp. She stressed about labeling their clothes and remembering to pack every last detail.
I sent Nicole to summer camp this week again for the fourth year...we have been blessed that she has loved meeting new friends and visiting new places...
I am grateful for tummy settling medicines or it would not happen for me because a few days before I begin to wonder, “what I was thinking encouraging her to go...be independent from me are... Continue Reading

As Mother's day approaches I love to share the story of the greatest gift that I have received as a mother... I can turn the hands of time back to going to the open house for Nicole's 4 year old open house for the parent's at her nursery school... On my way out of her classroom the windows were covered with worksheets about what the kids loved to eat, favorite color and what they wanted to be when they grow up.
As I stood there reading about french fries, the color pink and lots of "I want to be a firemen, doctor", and so on, I came upon Nicole's answers of pink, french fries and what she wan... Continue Reading

What a week of firsts for me!
During my spring break, Nicole and I went on her first college visit. I drove for the first time as a passenger as Nicole got her driver's permit.
On April 9th, another first was our debut of Fashionably Early with Jayne and Pat and Rachel too! Jayne, Rachel and I wanted to keep the old and incorporate the new... huh?
Our big make-over is thanks to a lot of hard work by a lot of people, and a lot of persistance by Jayne and Pat. So it began with discussions and continued on with meetings, a photo shoot, and you choosing our music!
We love our favorite models o... Continue Reading

Let me begin by saying that I'm very honored to have been a part of QVC for all of these years. If I take you back to the beginning, I'll say home shopping was very new to our customers, but so was the internet, etc.
25 years ago, I remember taking orders after being on air and packing products to ship on Black Friday. That was when hosts also took inventory of QVC products. At the time, the most memorable products were Capodimonte collectibles, a satin bedding set, pest remover, air cleaners, and classic gold jewelry. I remember selling Sears Craftsman tools, too. Cooking shows meant the hos... Continue Reading

It's the most wonderful time of the year! But, for so many of us, it's the busiest time of the year, too!!!!
I have to admit that I absolutely love to shop, and I remember everyone this time of year with a special surprise gift. QVC and QVC.com will truly give you lots of options, 24 hours a day, and will ship wherever you need your gifts to go. And, if all else fails, there's always a QVC gift card to rely on!
I grew up the middle of three girls, so I'm probably your go-to person for girl gifts. That's not to say I can't come up with a few good ideas for the guys in my life!
Every year, ... Continue Reading
