I know....I haven't been around for months and months. Life happens, and I am learning that blogging will easily get left behind if one doesn't make that conscience effort to be committed to doing it. I am, I admit, a procrastinator. Those that know me, and those that know of me, pretty much know that about me. It is something I should be working on to overcome, and I am. Can I commit to that? Yes...this is my vow. To give at least one entry a week. Just one, I think I can do that.
Since my last entry, we have moved. Now that right there is a pretty good excuse for falling behind. We were 4 people living in a small 2 bedroom house. Now, we have a 4 bedroom house. And there's a shop off the garage. Should I say, a 'Girlied-Up Man Shop'. I LOVE this space. I have all of my big boy tools set up dow there, like the bench grinder, drills and hammers, tumbler for glass and rocks. All kinds of cools stuff. Back to moving though...We (especially me) had accumulated a large mass of art and jewelry making supplies. Everything had to be packed up, moved and unpacked. It would have not been a big deal if I didn't have so much 'stuff'. But I do, so it was a major deal. We did it, but it has been a job finding everything. There are boxes and boxes in the garage that need to be gone through and either donated or discarded. So much for moving...
In October, I was published in Stampington's Jewelry Affaire! That is a big deal for me. I am so honored. They do such a great job photographing your pieces. I am also in the newest issue, which is available April 1st, but I got my copy yesterday. It's such a great magazine, with SO much eye candy and inspiration. I also have a piece in the most recent issue of Belle Amoure Jewelry. It's an oyster shell piece. I love oyster shells, but what to do with them? Wear them!
I will be setting up my wares for my community to see and purchase at the Port Angeles Rock, Gem and Mineral show. Another jewelry artist, miss kaylie, has so kindly offered to share her booth with me. this is my first attempt ever at this sort of thing. I think it'll be fun. Do stop and say hello if you make it to the show. Of course I've been working like a mad woman trying to get ready for this. Personally, I'll be glad when it's over. Don't know that this sort of selling will be my niche, but I'll give it a fair go.
Lots of other things to post about, but my to do list is LONG today and I have to work besides. I WILL be back....and soon!
