In three days, my friend Chris and I will host our annual Holiday Bazaar. We do it every year, the weekend before Thanksgiving, to kick off our Christmas season. And every year, for about the last 8 years, I tell myself I am NOT going to procrastinate till the last minute nor let myself get CRAZY with projects all over the house.
Once again, my good intentions fell by the wayside.
So instead of finishing
my myriad projects, I decided to walk around the house to document the lunacy:
|My poor kitchen table...(we've been eating from our laps in the family room for days on end...)|
|Piles of STUFF, covering the table....along with the sewing machine, and oh yes, my glass-cutting stuff as well|
|The island has been taken over, too....not a lot of cooking going on these days...|
|And then there's the table in my studio: my printer is being swallowed up by the jewelry projects in progress...|
|Oh, and of course my work desk....looks like there might be a couple of square inches to keep working...|
Well, enough of break. I GOTTA GET BACK TO WORK! Just keepin' it real . . .
|I have been having a BUNCH of fun, learning how to etch metal. It has become very addicting (just what I needed: a new distraction). I've been combining the etched copper with my soldering, beading and leather. These double-wrap bracelets should be priced at about $300 each, if I count all the hours I've put into them....don't think that'll fly with our customers!|
