I used to come on the Byzantine Forum a lot, but after a job change 3 years ago and a lot going on in my life - including trying to run my Chaplets & Chotkis business - my visits here faded away... In the meantime, I gave birth to my fourth son, who is now 18 months old and manages to tie up a lot of my time.
But I'm back! I'm closing Chaplets & Chotkis, which will free up a lot of my time (everything is currently half off on my website www.chotkis.com
], until it's all gone). So I should be able to spend more time visiting with you all!
By the way, if anyone knows of an Eastern Catholic or Orthodox bookstore that might be interested in getting what's left of my chotkis prayer beads, please let them know I'm going out of business and looking for a buyer to take everything in one batch. I'll give any parish or bookstore a drastically reduced price just to get the whole batch off my hands. Thanks! That would really free me up to spend more time here, and with my family at home!
Happy to be back!
