Miss Jacquelyn
    THE CADILLAC CARAVAN

In 1999, my husband and I decided to make a major change in our lifestyle. I closed my business, we put all of our possessions in storage, and we hit the road in our two 1979 Cadillac’s. Over the next 32 months, we “Coasted” along the Gulf Coast, and the coastline of Georgia, and South Carolina. We traveled light; renting mostly furnished places, staying in each location 4 to 8 months. This gave us time to get a feel for the area, and explore most of its nooks & crannies. I would usually find part-time employment while David ran his businesses over the Internet. We called this adventure The Cadillac Caravan. For the full story on Click here.


PARADIGM SHIFT

Miss Jacquelyn's - Southern Charm Note CardsMaking the transition, from a life of scheduled appointments, and working 12 to 15 hours a day, to a lifestyle of "going with the flow", was very liberating! The biggest surprise, for me, was discovering that we could live quite comfortably without all of the material trappings that we had accumulated, over the years, back in Phoenix.

If we were in need of something, I would find it at the local thrift shops, or garage sales. That allowed us to travel light, un-encumbered by goals, schedules, and expectations. This freed up a tremendous amount of creative energy for both of us.

Miss Jacquelyn's - Southern Charm Note CardsAfter almost three years of "Coasting", we decided it was time to settle down for awhile. We gave serious consideration to some of the locations where we had lived, on The Cadillac Caravan, but we ultimately chose the place where our paradigm shift began, Galveston Island, TX, as our new headquarters. It is a truly Magical place!

DIRECTING MY CREATIVE ENERGY

Now it was time to explore ways to channel my new found energy. First, I became a Trash to Treasure Junkie!

Miss Jacquelyn's - Southern Charm Note CardsMy love affair with Thrift Shops, and Yard Sales continued once we settled on The Island. I decided to turn my hobby into cash, and began selling many of my finds on eBay.
 


With a little TLC and creativity, a modest find can be turned into a real treasure. To share some of my ideas on how to turn Trash into Treasure, I set up a website: Miss Jacquelyn's Trash to Treasure. Take a peek, it may spark some new ideas!

Miss Jacquelyn's - Southern Charm Note CardsMy other outlet was through photography. It had been a hobby of mine for several years, and about half way through The Cadillac Caravan, I got a digital camera. After adjusting to the new format of digital photography, I began taking more & more pictures.

My favorite subjects were flowers, old houses, doorways, pathways, gates and fences.

Most of the photographs used in the following Note Cards, and Matted & Framed art work were taken in the unique and charming cities of Charleston, SC, and Galveston, TX.
