Wow. I can't believe I let the dust settle in again on this little blog in spite of all my good intentions. I've been busy the past few months trying to keep my head down and my hands busy, though, so all my thoughts have been with trying to progress as a creator of artisan jewelry. You'd be surprised at the many ways I try to accomplish that. Let's just say it isn't coming easy! Does that mean that I'm not a natural? Or that I'm not artistic? According to many, the answer to that is no. In fact, it may mean that I'm more of an artist than I think because I do have to work hard at it. What I am not, dear friends, is a good time manager. It takes me so long to come up with ideas and then to create (and finish!) whatever I come up with that I get discouraged very easily. But I'm still plugging away...more determined than ever to make this happen! This morning I'm planning to work on creating some findings. Wish me luck and keep tuning in. You won't want to miss it when the magic finally happens! See you soon!
