Time Flies . . .

I haven't been on my blog for such a long time I can't believe where the time has gone. I didn't think I left things unsaid for such a long time. I know when I set up this blog in 2007, I was going to be good girl and write things in it all the time. What happened? Hmmm . . . I have two part-time jobs (I'll have a third part-time job starting next week), volunteering at a school and taking care of my family (I hope that doesn't include laundry and cleaning).

I have some photos I have taken since June 2007, but first I must figure out how to work this blog again. Talking about brain dead . . . it is either the time right now or why isn't this user friendly or is it that I can't see properly?!

I have made many pieces of jewellery since June 2007. I have given many pieces as gifts or put my jewellery into my friends shop named "Wow Faktr" for others to purchase. I'm lucky that I have been able to sell my beauties in her shop.

Oh, I found the tab to insert pictures. Let's see how it works and I'll describe what it is if you aren't able to figure it out. ;) It is a bracelet made from copper and czech beads. I thought I took a better picture, but alas I do not know what folder I put it in. It was fun to make but I thought it would have been easier for some reason. It was still fun to create and see the expression from my friend who thought it was cool. I love feedback from friends as it makes one feel awesome at what they have made.

Things I want to accomplish year:
Since I'm a proud member or eSMArts group, I have opened up an Etsy store but I must put some pretties in my store and a personal blog about myself. I love creating jewellery and it would be an incredible thrill to sell it from my own store. I'm hoping I'll have it up and running by September 1, 2008. Wish me luck!

I would love to buy tumbler. It would be sensational to polish my pieces or simply to harden the wire on the jewellery I have made. I hear many advantages of owning one, so why not invest in one esp. if I could find it on sale. I've heard much about that I know anyone would benefit from owning one esp. if you create your own jewellery.

It would be awesome to know how to solder. I have a few items that are made of silver and they have broken as I'm simply rough with my jewellery. Wouldn't that be cool to learn a techniques that benefits me and the jewellery I make?!

Well it is now 3:20 a.m. and I must go to bed and let my mind create beauties in my sleep. I will post more creations in the next few days so you may also enjoy my creations.

This addiction just never stops, does it?? LOL
I would like to have a tumbler too, learn how to solder, and a LOT more!
I just need a source to get some extra time (including for blogging!) and a good money tree... ;-))

Money tree would be handy to have only if it grew in our own backyards. Hopefully, working extra jobs will indeed give me the extra monies to buy beads, etc. and keep on enjoying my creativeness juices flowing. Why stop doing something you thoroughly enjoy!

I did get the tumbler recently, at a hobby supply store, as I got bit by the bug too! Yep, we all become tool fanatics, I think. But each item (or most of them at least) really to add to and stretch what we can do!
