So, it must be that time of year …
That’s my excuse, anyway. I’m scouring, learning and obsessing over jewelry making again. (In the non-fused glass, non-chain-maille sort of way …) This means I have a new wholesale account with yet another company … (Um, no actual purchases yet, just a lot of dreaming. It’s good to be prepared!) Yep, I know. I need to pursue this new interest like I need another hobby …
In the meantime, I’m making jewelry. And – to be fair, I am contemplating how to incorporate my glass cabs in a few of them. I’m also making earrings, bracelets, metal pendants and necklaces … Oh my! (BTW – that first necklace is made with 8 strands of 11/0 beads, all braided together ALA kumihimo-style. I’m certain my eyesight will return at some point …)
My studio is a mess! I will clean it, one of these days! But, until then, I have a few glass projects brewing, and I need to catch up on some orders … So, I’m shifting gears. (Or, maybe I’ll go without a few hours sleep … yeah, that’ll work!)
- The next time the twins (MY BABIES!) return to school, it will be as Seniors! Good golly, someone is getting OLD!
- The pups have opened their eyes and are starting to move about. Playtime is short lived – but super cute, and sleeping/eating still rule the day.
- The pool is open, the garden planted, most of the flower beds are done. (See, I have been doing responsible grown-up stuff too!) I also read a few new books … umm, INSOMNIA!
- Everyone is eating well, as Mom’s kitchen never closes.
I’ll leave with a quick pick of (some of) my girls … Mimi, Cally and Nora, who are collectively called ‘Ma Gerlz’ … Which can quickly become “MONGRELS” when they’re misbehaving!
It’s 2am, back to (studio) work!
