So busy these days. Since the new puppy arrived we have company 1-2 times a day. Not that I'm complaining, I love that my friends and family are so into our new baby.....really! Since our trip to Alaska, we have been away twice and have had lots of weekend company (with more to come through September) I am desperately trying to squeeze in work, but even with me cutting my work schedule down to just two nights a week, it still doesn't seem like enough.
Unfortunately I have not been in the studio. My sketchpad is full of new ideas, and I'd love to get back at it. It almost feels like I've taken an extended vacation as far as the jewels go, but I have been spending time writing and working on Vintage Junque Revival.
I woke up at 4:00 this morning, to try and get some computer work done. It's supposed to be rainy, and I hate to admit it, I'm kind of glad. Big Daddy and I are going to do inside chores, then maybe I'll find time to play in the studio!
I've been all about cleaning and destashing this house. Just too much about. As we get older, do we crave more order, function and organization? (not that I think 40 is old mind you) But I do find my creativity flows better when things are (somewhat in order). We wont talk about the bedroom and my upstairs studio that I'll have to move back into in another month when it get's cold!
Anyhoo, I'm almost uploading items daily to the shop, and it feels good to think that some of these goodies will find new appreciation.


  1. I wish I was close to come visit your new pup! Hopefully next year we can meet up!!!
