Headpin Wear, A BEST Team Feature

>> Tuesday, March 22

In the quaint little California town of Benicia lives Cathy with her husband and 14 year old son. 
By day, she defies the preconceived notion of a California commute, having to drive 1.4 miles 
to work. It is the kind of drive I would imagine, that on really warm days, 
you cannot even get your car A/C to cool down your car, and...you're there!
Cathy started making jewelry a few years ago, like so many of us, created pieces for herself. 
She has to be in the right mood to create her meticulously crafted jewelry that transform 
real gemstones, crystals, sterling silver, copper and brass into one of a kind pieces! 
Today, she is shopkeeper to Headpin Wear, her Etsy shop that specializes in handmade 
and custom made jewelry.
Aside from this, Cathy finds time to blog and last Sunday's post about 
her blog winning an award includes 7 interesting facts about her:

1. She loves the winter and fall and hates the cold and rain.

2. She met her husband at work and what started as an office romance blossomed
into a true companionship, her having found her "better half."

3. She spends a lot of time in "court," having to deal with child support. 
I empathize with her and the many many women I know who are thrust in this position.

4. She is addicted to beads! In this aspect, we are one and the same. 
Cuz I love beads too!

5. She is an early bird. She wakes up before 4 am. Wow!

6. She loves Christian music and listens to it most of the time.
6a. She likes all her programs open and lined up on the bottom of her computer 
screen. No stacking of programs.

7. And finally, she loves to cook and would enjoy moonlighting at a small restaurant. 
Her favorite thing to cook? Barbeque!
