Happy New Year!
I've been MIA
I could tell you that I've been to the islands.
I was invited to the White House.
I was appearing on the Martha Stewart Show
but that would be all lies.
The truth is...
I have this Etsy shop.
Who knew Christmas was the busiest time of the year?!
This used to be my dining room table.
Then it became a shipping table.
Now it's just
My dining room looks like a room on those newscasts
where they remove the children
from the deplorable living conditions.
Yup. I've created deplorable living conditions.
There's no pizza boxes.
Just mounds of tape, bubble wrap, postage paraphernalia and so forth.
But, I survived.
I met so many wonderful people that
it was worth every late night and early morning
that I spent creating the
deplorable living conditions.
This is the pile of fun today.
I finally made it out to my favorite antique store for more buttons.
My daughter said,
"Really. You really need more buttons."
Just to show you that I did actually
clean the counter up for breakfast Christmas morning.
My daughter refused to make cinnamon rolls for us
if there was any broken glass or staples.
I did get a nifty new Ott light.
It helps SO much.
There's no reason for me not to be making jewelry
well into the wee hours of the morning.
That's what caffeine is for isn't it?
I've been making these:
and don't forget to have fun.
