What I really love doing and get excited about everyday is creating jewelry, but there are so many other aspects to being a responsible jewelry artist. There is always bookkeeping, paperwork and advertising to do. The latter brings me to attempt creating my own website and blog. There are a lot of great do-it-yourself host sites out there all claiming you'll have a site up and published in a few hours and anyone can build their own website. Well, a week later and some frustrating late nights
, I do have a website and blog published. There are some glitches and tweaks that still need to be done, but all in all I am amazed and somewhat proud of myself for this accomplishment. So, if I can, you can. One more fear that has been overcome!
There is so much joy from having my jewelry studio (my happy place) in the backyard. I can work in my pajamas and slippers, ahhhh comfort! In the summer I can enjoy the heavenly scent of the 500 plus fragrant lillies blooming all around the backyard. I can appreciate the ever changing flora when I take ten minute breaks to pull a few weeds. Now, I've have a cute, stripe cat hanging around that I felt was kind of skinny. Of course, it started out with treats, but now I have a bag of food in the garage for him. The other day I gave him a nice ceramic cat dish on the patio and I call him Tiger. Ooops! I think I have a new kitty.
