Sapphires are everybody's best friend!

Today was an absolutely beautiful Presidents' Day holiday. The weather was pristine and I know a lot of people were out enjoying the beach and sunshine--which is great because those of you coming to our workshop this Saturday are in for a full day and an early start!

I've always been a big believer that whatever you do should be fun, and that includes learning. We have a big day ahead of us, from 8:30 to 3:00, and there's no way I want anybody to be bored, so I'm going to make sure everybody's learning valuable, useful skills and having a great time in the process. Our games always get people laughing, communicating and jumping out of their seats!

I've already told you about some of our fabulous prizes. I finally got the details of the beautiful piece of jewelry we're getting from Dale Cripps Jeweler and Robert Palma Design. It's our most sensational prize yet--a sapphire and diamond ballerina pendant necklace worth $9500! The sapphire is a gorgeous stone. It weighs 1.8 carats and is surrounded by 1.5 carats of diamonds. We appreciate so much this lovely donation.

Everybody here at the office is drooling, but I told them sorry, you don't qualify! Boy, is somebody going to be really happy when they leave this workshop--it's an amazing piece!

Just wanted to get you salivating even more!


I wnet to the workshop at the Hilton and one of the ladies at our table wond the beautiful sapphire pendant. It was stunning - I can't believe they gave it away.
