Fall has forever been my favorite season. My Mom was always perplexed when I would tell her that. After all, it meant Minnesota winter was right around the corner! But to me, fall meant looking forward to seeing all of my friends at school, the beginning of tennis season, Friday night football games, bonfires, and of course, layers of rich warm colors of fall fashion! As it turns out, fall still brings joy to me for so many of the same reasons.
Friendship remains my number one fall celebration, and this 2012 fall season has already warmed my soul like a wool blanket wrapped around my shoulders on a moonlit horse and buggy ride. September started out with a fabulous celebration of friendship and jewelry at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Texas, where many of you joined me for laughter, shopping, eating, trivia, prizes, and design chat! I truly cherish your friendship, and it is such a joy to bring you together to meet new friends! My dream came true when I was introduced to so many special new friends, who came to know Carolyn Pollack Jewelry from their best friends. It was wonderful to see friends traveling from across the country to reunite with those who they discovered through QVC and Carolyn Pollack Jewelry on Facebook. And to add a sparkle to the sadness of saying our goodbyes, we all looked forward to gathering again soon. I can promise you that I began planning our next gathering as soon as I boarded the plane from Dallas to Albuquerque!!! I’ll keep you posted on the plans for February 2013!
Awaken Your Sleeping Beauty Sweepstakes winner Cheryl Boyd and her daughter Lauren from Winston-Salem, NC. Cheryl was introduced to my designs by her 92 year old mother. They had a wonderful, relaxing weekend (jewelry shopping and a visit to the spa!).

Just a few days after returning home, I was overwhelmed by the fact we had reached the 100,000 Facebook fan milestone!!! I love knowing that together we have created a place to gather that is positive, fun, uplifting, active, and interactive. I want to thank all of you who gather there to share your enthusiasm, concerns, ideas, and most importantly, your positive spirit of friendship! I am honored that you take time out of your busy lives to share your thoughts with all of us at Carolyn Pollack Jewelry, and our greater, FABULOUS Carolyn Pollack Jewelry Facebook community.
I will be posting some highlights from our Gaylord Texan event on Facebook over the weekend, as well as some of the behind the scenes preparations happening for this week's celebration of friendship!!! I will be spending 6 hours with the lovely and loveable Antonella Nester and 2 hours with the charming Dave James this weekend. Of course, no party is complete without you! I hope you will join us Friday, September 21st, from 9 - 11pm, Saturday, September 22nd, from 2 - 4pm, and Monday, September 24th from 1 - 3am and again at 1 - 3pm.
I can hardly wait to premiere over two dozen new items, including two new collections that caused quite the buzz at our party in Texas! I look forward to gathering with all of you this weekend on QVC!
