I’m protesting winter!

We received 15″ of new snow yesterday morning.  This morning when I woke up, the temp was hovering around zero degrees and with the wind gusts felt like 10 below.   I am SO over winter… I need spring to come fast!!

I have decided to protest winter, in hopes it will feel unwelcome and leave.  Or that spring will get a boost of confidence and beat the crap out of old man winter.  Who’s with me?


I Don’t Wanna Grow Up…

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Picasso

My solution:  I refuse to grow up.  (I don’t wanna!  I don’t wanna!  You can’t make me!)

So, I have been pretty bad about blogging (again).  So I thought I would just give a brief overview of the things I have been up to, thinking about, trying not to think about and refusing to acknowledge.

Etsy has been going okay.  I have been selling for 2 months now and have 7 sales.  I keep hearing that it is super slow right now for sellers, so I am hoping that things will pick up even more.  I’m just happy to be selling anything – especially since I am a newbie to Etsy. 

My Spring Open House will more than likely be late in May, but not the weekend of Mother’s day like it normally is (and not Memorial Day weekend).  I have decided to shoot for later in the month to try and be more prepared.  If I still need more time, I am going to have in the first weekend in June… stay tuned for more info!

I have been working diligently on jewelry, but have also been working on scarves, magnets, hair clips and brooches.  I am considering getting rid of the “Heaven and Earth Jewelry” name and just sticking with “Creativity is Messy”.  It seems to fit and it allows more room for growth into other craft areas.  I will be including some of my new “mediums” in this years spring show for people to check out.  I would love your imput!

Outside of the “crafting” arena, life is… well… life.  I keep trying to run away from it, but it won’t let me.  Work is crazy busy.  I took last week off (because I had to use my vacation time before I lost it) and am now even more behind.  Home is crazy as well.  So much going on! 

Sometimes I feel like I have 3 or 4 full time jobs…  and it is times like those that I just want to sit at the dining room table with a hot cup of coco, like I did when I was a kid and color.  But I usually settle for my craft table, a latte and my beads.
