So... the good news is that my hands are on the mend from this episode and I'm starting to create again. YEY!!! The other good news is that I'm getting myself back onto Etsy -- it's been a couple of years I think. I've been stopped by several reasons, one of which has been frustration with photographing my work and I think I've finally come up with some that I like. That is a GREAT feeling. Here is a preview of a few of my pieces:
The other good thing for me right now is that my mother is visiting from Pennsylvania. I love it when she visits and she's just a wonderful person. We have lots of fun together. Of course, she usually leaves with a number of my pieces for free, but you've just got to give in to mom:) There is a funny thing about mom's visit and my hands being better though. Last night I excitedly went to get the piece that I was working on in my blog... "The Project", and after much searching I couldn't find it or any of the beads I'm using in it. I entirely blame this on my mom because it was due to her visit that I was shoving things in boxes and under tables at the last minute before I left to get her at the airport. All mom's fault!! Nope... not mine at all:) I figure I'll find it one day soon and if not, then after mom leaves. In the mean time, I'll just have to make other fun things.
Actually, that (fun things) reminds me. When we got mom from the airport in San Francisco, we went to the Presidio for the California Watercolor Association's annual National Exhibit. It was amazing to see so many variations of watercolor use. I was just blown away by all the styles and beauty that I saw there. And to top it off, as we drove in to the parking lot, we saw in the building next door there was an Andy Goldsworthy exhibit! I was SO excited. I can't even tell you how much I love his work. If you haven't heard of him, I encourage you to look him up. Maybe I'll do a post about him soon.
I guess that's it for the latest. Back to work now and more playtime tomorrow.
