Work in Progress Wednesday, a plethora of pendants and earrings!

>> Wednesday, September 28, 2011

On deck this week- pendants and earrings, mostly of the seashell variety.

I'm attempting to make my first pair of post style earrings instead of my usual dangles. Wish me luck!


Fancy and Finished and For Sale!

This little guy is now available in my Etsy shop.

I'm loving this new design!


Work in progress Wednesday v2.0

>> Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Now that the kiddos are gone all day at school, I am trying to get back to work full-force. Today I'm fulfilling a pendant order for a local retail shop.

And the little seahorse in the bottom left corner is going to go to Etsy when he's finished.

More photos later this week!

Back to school, etsy and other blah blah

Well between Hurricane (Tropical Storm) Irene, loss of electricity for several days and school starting last week, it's been chaotic around here to say the least.

Last Wednesday Aidan started second grade and Avery went in for his Kindergarten orientation.

On Thursday, I put my baby on the "big kid bus" for his first full day of school. Aidan was so cute. "Come on, Avery, I'll show you what to do" taking him by the hand...

With the kids off to school and several hours all to myself each day now, I have begun a real and true full time work schedule for myself. Difficult for a WAHM.

Today I shut down my website and in the process moved another 30 some odd items over to my new Etsy shop.

I also listed some items to my original Etsy shop. (now the proud wearer of my domain name

I was supposed to start running again today. I had been running 4 miles a day, about 5 times a week. Then I broke my toe. And, well, that ended that. I've been two months without a run.

So I had it all planned out. To start with, I will run Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays immediately after the kids get on the bus and I'll be back home and ready to work by 10:00. This morning I woke up, suited up with my new sneaks
and came out to the kitchen to see it was torrentially raining. And it's supposed to do it ALL WEEK LONG.

I guess there's no harm in waiting another week, right? Ugh.

In other news, I saw a great tutorial for making these little felt flowers to put together a wreath today.

I'm going to make one for my fireplace mantel that should stretch me through until Christmas time.

It's now entering the 3:00 hour- which is my draggin hour.

I could just crawl into bed and sleep til dinner. What do you do to stay awake when the mid afternoon drags hit you?
