How many of us thought, "I should blog"? Now I'm going to do it!

My life has gone through many stages. In my youth I was going to change my name, Margie Griffin at the time to Maggie O'Griffin and be on Broadway by the time I was 30. Now I am Margie Hillebrecht and back in my old hometown of Latrobe PA (home of Arnold Palmer, Mr. Rogers, The Banana Split and Professional Football). By the way, my sister was the first female mayor of Latrobe!

I have worked at a Television Station, Radio Station, Equity Theatre, A Woman's Shelter and Rape Crisis Center, Newspaper, my own Brick and Mortar Bookstore (which unfortunaly burned down) and now I have an Etsy shop. 

I intend to talk about my picking trips for my vintage jewelry, the things I am making in jewelry, the things I am learning in jewelry and everyday thoughts and concerns! So to misquote a quote "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!

Keep your head up high! - Margie
