Year of the bead!

Well, that’s what I said back in January. And things were hopping along quite nicely. Until life kinda jumped in and without being very polite nudged the beads off to the side for a bit.
And in my creative mess I wasn’t in the mood to drag it back…until now. I’m making a new start and keeping things simple. I almost feel like I’m selling myself out with this, by deciding on selling multiples, and going mainstream with my stock. I, like many other beaders want to sell one of a kind (OOAK) items and not have many of the same thing. Well, sometimes it just doesn’t work like that. I’ve known this for a while and, yes, have been in denial about it. By doing the few things I will be I can still keep my creative difference even with making stacks of multiples.
It may be June and half way through the year already but The year of the Bead is back on track!
There’s something I want to test out, which are easy to make and can be whipped up in no time at all. Even at markets if I so desire. A simple, stylish something that pretty well all women would like to wear (I hope).
Cheers beady friends, Jen


Life is unpredictable

I do like my life. I love it actually. From be day to the next, I never know what might change. There is a certain amount of normal and routine, but with hubby’s work roster, he will often come home from a drive and tell me we are going somewhere. Regardless of what I had wanted to do. And for this reason I try to be as productive as possible when he is at work. To make up for the slack times when he’s at home.
This weekend is a prime example. Today, Saturday, I was going to take some photos of things and maybe make a few more. Tomorrow is Mother’s Day so whatever happened would happen, I was happy with that. Today, hubby took our eldest to work and on the way home organised that we are going out to friends for dinner. Leaving just after lunch in time to pick up son from work.
This is not all bad. I have to remember I can’t just go go go and not have some down time socialising. I do have two weeks to get everything in order – but then I have two weeks of distractions – argh!!!
So to end this, I will see you all during the week I between those pesky trips to the city that will take up half a day here, half a day there.

Have a great weekend and happy Mother’s Day to all concerned 🙂
