Don't Worry, I Didn't Forget About My Blog

Aurora Borealis Heart Earrings .930 Silver $22.00
Sure feels like I have, though! Apologies for the lack of updates, but I've been so busy lately with two custom jewelry projects, a custom graphics set,  and on top of all that scheduling all the convention appearance for my fiancé, I haven't had a moment to come by and at least say "hello".

I can't say I'm not happy about being busy, though! My fiancé told me to "think positive" and things would start looking up (I'm a terrible pessimistic person). I suppose they have, seeing as this is a break in a month long dry spell as far as sales, go.  I'm working so hard to make this business venture work for me, because I'd really, REALLY prefer working from home, and being able to handle all the business matters for my fiancé, too, so he can focus more on meeting his [way more strict] deadlines.  I just wasn't able to juggle my last full time job (I was an optician), AND help him out, because I was so exhausted by the time I came home. 

Swirled Blue Glass Necklace and Earrings $25.00
I have a better sense of self worth, and pride in my work, now that I'm working for myself.  I'm not trying so hard to live up to another person's unrealistic expectations. I like that when something goes wrong, the only person I can blame is myself. 

Plus, since I've been a work from home artist, I've been more involved in fun things online, such as blog rings, and being able to participate in fun giveaways! I've learned tons about couponing, and finding fantastic deals--and I'm loving everyone minute of it!

This was a lot of rambling, I apologise! I just wanted to say hello to you all (I have double the amount of followers since the last time I made a post, so "hello" to all the new followers).


  1. Love those earrings. I just run out of time ... haven't been able to create some "new" art for a while.

    Hugs and Happiness to all.

  2. Thanks:)

    I know what you mean! Sometimes, by the time all the chores, errands, and whatever else happens to come up, is done, I feel like I don't have any time to do anything creative! Sometimes I feel like I have less time to create than I did when I had a full time [at the office] day job XD
