Ok I seriously suck

Ok, I suck. It has been 28 days since my last blog post.
I feel like I should be doing a mea culpa.
The problem is my life just hasn't been that interesting. I have been busy making beads, filling a large order, getting my daughter settled back in school, taking the my poor 12 year old dog to the vet (does anyone really want me to blog about his stuffy gallbladder & flatulence?)

And the honest truth I have been in a funk. I have been so busy with production and all mundane things life requires that I haven't had time to be really be inspired.
This is the dilemma of the artist that relies on making a living with her craft. Too often it leaves little time to explore new things.
I am hoping that as this new month begins I will be able to have fun again.

Lots of catching up to do.

Some of the loot I got from Bead Fest to go with my new Koi bead.

So much to say, so little time. I know I have been neglecting my blog, my etsy and everything else you can think of, but know that I have not been sitting around eating bonbons.
I went from the Philly Bead Fest to the Bucktown Art Fest and back home to a pile of orders.
I am still playing catch up.
The Bead Fest was great fun. I got to hang out with some super cool & talented ladies, including the fabulous Lorelei Eurto, Kerry Bogert, Nancy Schindler, Kelly Wentzel, and Cassandra Procopio, along with my booth-mate Melanie Brooks. We had the greatest time together and I cannot wait to go back next year to do it again and hang out with my new friends. (Did I mention how awesome these women were?)

As soon as I came home from Philly I had to put on my magic artist pants turn this pile in my studio into art.

Chicago was fun but the Bucktown show was a disappointment sales-wise. Not sure if I'll do it again next year. (But my magic artist pants did their job and I did make some great pieces)

Now I am back home trying to catch up on orders, get my life together, get my daughter off to the 4th grade, apply to foster a doggie through Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue , (cause I need another Boston Terrier like a hole in the head, but I just can't help myself), get projects ready for publication, teach 2 classes this month & oh yeah, the Holidays are right around the corner.
Holy crap! I must be out of my mind.
