I realize I haven't updated for a long time. Seems the more I "network", the less I get done.
If you have found your way to my blog, please also find me at Twitter. I update there a couple of times a day generally. Usually with shop updates of new listings or things I want to share from my selection.
As for my design work. I continue creating new pieces and listing on Etsy. Cycling through stages of typewriter key jewelry, beaded pieces, lampwork beads and the occasional odd inspiration.
This summer looks to be busy. We've just bought a home and will be moving. That is a real stressful time, especially where beading is concerned. I have to put away all my trays and dishes of work in progress, pack up the lampwork station, and basically add boxes to my out of the box way of working. I like to have things where I can see them. So that when I am passing by or happen upon a "palette" of beads gathered for a project, I can ponder it and think about how I'd like to see them together. When things are packed up and boxed neatly away, well, I miss them.
Hopefully this will be the home we see our last two children grow up in, where we can look forward to many visits from grandchildren and grow old together in. Pursuing our passions, finding new ones and not boxing up our creativity.
