So why have I been missing so long?

Has it really been since October 18th that I last posted? I wish I could say I had been busy throwing pots in those few days but that is not the case. I finally got motivated to start working on jewelry again at night.

I am now back to working 5-6 hours a day on business along with schooling the kids. This means I am staying up very late and getting up early in order to try to break even with my projects and time. It isn't working. I am now at least a week behind on laundry.

I have come to the conclusion that there just are not enough hours in the day. Or... I have turned into a wimp since I need more than 6 hours of sleep at night!

So do you want to see what I have been making?

I thought you would never ask! LOL

I am absolutely loving these colors. They are not my colors at all but these colors just seem so warm and inviting to me and I LOVE these large beads. They are just beautiful! I just sold both of these items but hope to make another one tonight. (If these kids would get to bed!) In the meantime there are other items to see.

Here is what inspired the combination of champagne beads and the topaz colored beads. I started with this necklace and didn't want to stop using these colors.

Then I had to go back to ocean colors. I just love the aqua and blues. Can't seem to get enough of them. Good thing other people like them or I would really be stuck with a lot of inventory. :)

Then I decided to repeat a design I liked in the champagne beads but this time in purples. Just too much fun!

Well, now you know why I have not been around much lately. Oh and I even took time to pull weeds, trim some trees, and clean house. Just in case I start to get bored I have lots more weeds to pull (and we won't talk about the laundry issue).
