Well, it's been a long time my friends, I don't really know what happened, I think I just lost my mojo and got bored, and stopped blogging, making jewelry, all the things I love to do.  But it's all slowly coming back to me, so I'm going to dip my toe into the water and see how it feels.

I haven't been making a lot of jewelry lately, I'm really just not sure where I want to go with my business.  I still love making jewelry, but the selling part is harder for me -- I'm not great at keeping my etsy shop up to date, advertising, getting into shows, and generally just getting my name out there.  But I'm also not really to fold up shop, so I'm going to take it slowly, I've enrolled in a couple of upcoming shows this fall in my area, and we will see where things go from there.

One thing that I HAVE been quite passionate about lately, is organizing.  I've always been into organizing (not necessarily cleaning, but ORGANIZING).  When I worked in an office, I was very good at filing....something most people don't like to do.  Give me a label maker and a stack of file folders, and I'm off!  When I'm making jewelry, one of the things I love to do most it to label and organize all my beads --- could this be an OCD tendency?  I don't know, but it's something that has always sparked passion in my life.

So, recently I read a book that has sort of taken things to a whole new level for me.  It's called THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP by Marie Kondo.  

I think this book is going to change my life.  I've been so inspired to do so much around here, and also inspired to start blogging again, to document my journey in this new chapter.  So, keep checking back, I promise to keep things a LOT more current around here and I will keep you posted with what I've been up to!
