I'm off.....2nd Paint n Wine Country Workshop

Next week I should be back to some kind of order in the house!

Today the car is packed and I'm ready to head out for Sonoma, CA. to the beautiful Sonoma Country Antiques and European Furniture Shop. We are going to have a great time introducing two new products, Ce Ce Caldwells beautiful paint that comes in 21 colors with 12 more coming in March. The paint is GREEN...no acrylic and the wax is all natural...NO PETROLEUM and made in the USA. Beautiful applications will be taught and PAINT WILL FLY. I will be introducing two new Retailers in the Bay area and I will be setting up a third Retailer on my way home in the San Joaquin Valley. February 24 and 25th will be here fast. Here is the information on the two day workshop hosted by Interior Designer Debi Weber at the base of Camel Back Mountain.....talk about inspiration.
I am still looking for Retailers in Utah, Nevada, Alaska and Hawaii. Please contact me if you are interested in becoming a part of the CeCeCaldwell family. Have a great day.....a great life and don't forget to embrace the moment and tell your family and friends how much they are appreciated and loved.

Do you know how hard it is to "sit down"?

I need to sit myself down and bring my posts up to date. I have destination workshops, Canyon Lake workshops, Ce Ce Caldwell Retailer locations, products, applications, need I go on, that I need to bring everyone up to date with. The Holidays are always great fun but this year it totally put me back in my routine and schedule, maybe that is good....maybe it's Gods way to say, "slow it down" and "be here now". It's a New Year......and a busy one already. Ce Ce Caldwell's Paints are taking off like wild fire, we knew they would since they are totally green without any acrylic and even the containers are eco-friendly. Retailers are coming on board in the Western Division as well as throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Exciting times. Instead of rambling....I'm going to post this and ask you to please be patient....I will get it all together by the weekend....even my website is under construction. Whew. Enjoy this day....and don't forget to tell your friends and family how much you love them and appreciate who they are.

I think the revised post happened....if it didn't, I still have problems, I apologize. I'll try it again...but not tonight...I'm done!

Whew.....I finally get to post

HAPPY NEW YEARS.... Wow, it took four days to figure out what happened and how to get back into my House of Anne blogspot. The only thing I want to caution is that there are people out there that "borrow" what isn't theirs and totally mess up what was "yours". Enough said, just be aware. I want to post photo's.....just a little apprehensive, I want to see how this post plays out. I don't know about you but I am glad 2011 is closed. It was a very exciting year but on the flip side of the coin, a year that demonstrated to me the true meaning of life. FAMILY.....FRIENDS.......INTEGRITY......COURTESY.....and RESPECT, personal and in business. Family....I am blessed. Beautiful, smart and creative children (grown) and over the top, grandchildren. My son Marty, in the Army...serving his country in Afghanistan, with the integrityand wisdom of an American soldier. Doing this all for the love of his family, friends and country. His awesome family that had to get through the holidays without a husband and dads physical presence...not fun....but done so with pride and faith. I am so proud of Dawn, Cody, Noah, Hayleyanne and Hannah. My son Marc, a loyal, patient, respectful man. A quiet man but when he speaks you listen. Amy, Austin and Kate.....wife, son and daughter....a model American family. My daughter...Kellyanne. What can I say. She is a woman of strength and resilience....give her a challenge and she steps right up to the plate. A mother of five children, raising them with fortitude and love of a single parent. Kellyanne has always amazed me and in the past year totally shocked me with her talent for business and creativity in the world of paint. Although we each paint, teach and create....we do so with competitive products, but it's ok because we respect and love one another.....nothing of a "material" source can come between us. I need to mention my husband and friends.......thank you....I love you for letting me be me! My friends have been well entertained through life and my husband, well all I can say is, "thank you for your patience, respect, support and love". I say "thank you" every morning before I get out of bed.....and I say it again before I slip into a semblance of sleep ( I don't like to sleep, a waste of time for me....I so love the surprise of each new day".) Ok...enough! Briefly...I am the Western Distributor for CeCeCaldwell's Paints, Waxes and Products....what is going to happen in the next 90 days will be amazing! GREEN, no acrylic in our paint and NO PETROLEUM in our waxes......safe for children and pets as well as the artisan. Workshops are scheduled throughout 9 Western states....Retailers in place ready to let the "paint fly" and total excitement in the world of "environmental conscience citizens".

February 17th and 18th there will be a 2 day workshop in Paradise Valley, AZ. Debi Weber, renown Designer will be the host with Anna Sadler, an amazing artisan will be participating in a workshop segment. Information will be posted soon and space will be limited.
I want to address Amy Howard at Home and Annette Tatum.....two talented Designers that I am involved with and representing their beautiful products. I'll do that next time since I'm not totally sure how this posting will display after the "tampering". Ok, I test "posted".....let's hope this is good. I wish you all the most wonderful year of your life. Enjoy NOW.....remember YESTERDAY and TOMORROW's aren't ours.
Let the Paint FLY.....all over our beautiful world!

I am working hard to get this "blog" back up and running.....as I told you yesterday, my blog was hacked into removing the header, gadgets linking to my website and all of you followers. I will post this evening the winner for the 21 CeCeCaldwell's Paints and also the "comped" space for the Paint 'n' Wine Country Workshop in Sonoma on January 26th. This is not a fun way to start the year but I guess, bygones are bygones and this needs a new beginning. Please check back later.

Happy New Year but a BIG HICCUP with my BLOG

I so apologize for whatever has happened to my blog......everything disappeared...it's called BLOG SPAM and HACKING....not good. Please be patient while I get it up and running....very frustrating and so much to tell.
