I really have not been doing so well with posting , most of my posts make it on facebook. Well, Big sales coming up this weekend and the following weekend is a craft show. I have been working on tree toppers, and ornaments like crazy and to tell you the truth I am looking forward to going back to making some jewelry.I have so many ideas I want to do. The ornaments sold well last year at my Mother in laws shop so I thought they would do well this year so far OK. I wonder if there will be a flood of sales this weekend? I am keeping my fingers crossed. I have been thinking more about trying some new things next year. I am still thinking of possible medium changes. As well as new ones I am excited to try. I will see how the sales go and make those changes if money allows.For now, Stick with what I know and make it the best I can!:)

Seems like when it rains it pours. I have been so busy working on Christmas ornaments and had two sick little ones and myself for a week now. I hope I can keep up with the demand, i still have to get more made for a local store. I hope by spending quality family time today and after a reunion tomorrow, I can focus on my art. I feel like I need to get back into some jewelry after the last few weeks. I'm not saying I don't want to make the ornaments, it's just that I enjoy the jewelry making so much more. the wire is smaller and challenging! I have always been up for a good challenge! I have so many ideas and never enough time! Well so it seems. :)

I am working on some pendants for my shop. Mostly sea glass, I am getting very high interest in sea glass from my customers. I am making them just like the earrings but trying to figure out some more designs.I guess today is a designing day!

I am not sure but time seems to stand still for somethings in my mind. Events in my life, weird how sometimes the past makes sense now and how we couldn't see it then. Now frozen in my mind. Past mistakes, sorry's that never were given, weird how they come back. Lessons learned. just like my pieces, always something unexpected. Decisions to be made. Somethings can be erased but still leave a mark. Others, unfinished projects I have loads of them. Some day I say, someday.

My work area looks really bad. I can't seem to get to the painting under all the other beads and things on my work counter. So i asked my hubby to bring up a shelf from the basement to help clean off the clutter. I can finally see that painting, hopefully I can get to working on it this week. I also want to get working on those silk scarves I have delayed enough!:)

Seriously I am not kidding I am afraid my ideas run longer than the wire I just bought! i made these six pieces and a few necklaces for some of the lamp work glass beads I bought a month or so ago. I am waiting on some parts to get them complete, so it will be awhile until I get pics done.I also have some others things I am working on, hope to get pictures up soon!:)

I just spent what feels like hours putting together business cards! I even did it online thru MOO. I received there sample pack and loved it , but thought they were a little pricy, however they are having a sale right now so i guess I will have to use them!:) I also bought some stickers too!

Three new ornaments, not sure which will be mass produced yet, they all took forever to make, just need to get back in the groove!

Last night I worked on a Christmas ornament. took me all my time to make one. I hope I pickup the pace for this years sales. Last year I was working my tail off making them nonstop. I couldn't make them fast enough. thought I would work out some new patterns that were in my head. I will share some pics when I get a few more done. Today I hope to get painting during my son's nap and maybe tonight too. I really do have to squeeze in the time when I can. When school gets back in session I will have more time than I know what to do with! :)

I wish I had all the equipment I had in college. I would have made these little windows myself and a lot better. The latch wouldn't tighten and I broke two. They are now being glued in my bench clamp. Finally using that tool!:) But, still I think these might be a good idea regardless!
Here is the start of that rug, just a section of the background but a start none the less!
I am excited about these too. I am using vintage marbles and going to make these into dangle earrings!

I have been for weeks wanting to get started on some paintings. I just now am getting the urea water made. What is urea water? Lets just say if the that water doesn't get made there will be no silk painting going on! Well, when I finally have time to do it! This is one of last years paintings. Peonies in a vase.
