Another surprise that greeted me here this morning was finding that I've posted only six times this month. I was a little disappointed with myself until I realized that this has also been one of my most productive months creatively. I've made and listed several new items, am currently working on four projects, and have initiated a couple of changes in my shop. Since I started this blog to help me focus on becoming productive again, I've decided not to be too hard on myself about the lack of posting! Also, my mom brought up the point that a lot of my new items feature components that I've made myself, and I'm taking that as a good sign. Below are some of my new listings, just click the pics if you'd like a closer look!
Darker, My Love
As far as shop changes, I've expanded my Curiosities/OsteoWear section, and now have Finger and Wrist sections. My necklaces are now listed by color in ROY G [red, orange, yellow, green], BIV [blue, indigo, violet], and Neutrals. I also wanted to mention that I've closed my Zibbet shop because I decided it's best for me to focus on only one shop. And to end the jewelry talk is a big project I'm working on - the creation of quality tags for each of my necklaces and bracelets! I ordered letter and quality stamps, and have made two tags using fine silver bezel strip. I definitely need practice, but I have attached one already, which you can see on the necklace in my shop if you click this closeup:
I do have some things lined up here to try to help me remain inspired to post again. There's another project I want to mention, a wonderful nature photographer I had hoped to feature last week, and a blog award I'm looking forward to finally posting about. It almost sounds like I have a plan! Susan and Alex, if you see this, I haven't forgotten you and I will write soon. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! :)
