I can't believe it's been THAT long since I last posted.... O.o

I am so SORRY.

I've been meaning to post for ages, but every time I think "well... If I'm going to blog, I should get some new photos taken first..." .. or that I should finish a project to share in my post... or .. well.. you get the idea >.<

And then of course, once I take those photos... they need to be edited/uploaded .. or once I finish that project.. I need to take photos.. which then need to be edited/uploaded... lol

Yes, I HAVE been caving in to the procrastination monster FAR too often when it comes to my blog.

I am sorry to leave everyone wondering where I wandered off to. I here *waves hands*.

In the words of one of my fave bloggess's...(if that's not a word... it is now :p) fancifuldevices, I have a 'crap-ton of stuff' to share with you guys :) In addition to my usual jewelry making journeys, I've also been playing with yarn and have become horribly addicted to my scarf making loom, and pretty, fuzzy yarns >.< Not only have I made two scarves for myself, a few for gifts, and bunch for donating, I've also made a bunch that won't be scarves, but are awaiting my making enough.. and figuring out how to join them together so they can be blankets.

Ooohh... hey, I can blame all the pretty soft fuzzy yarn for keeping me away from you guys!! :) Just ask Shelly ( of tori sophia fame)... I make the thickest, warmest, fuzziest scarves.. they just make you want to snuggle them :D

Lets see... beside the yarn, I did toy with some homemade clay briefly, but I wasn't happy with it. I have a couple other recipes I want to try ( crap...>.< I forgot to get cornstarch at the bulkstore today... grr... so I guess that recipe will wait a while longer )

Aside from that I've been sucked back into scratch baking, and making chocolates... as if I didn't do enough baking at work, now I do it at home on my days off too lol

This last week my artsy side has started to drag me back to painting, and I have two canvases on the go at the moment. I kinda... am waiting for my muse to come back and remind me where I was going with them >.< lol the yarn distracted me... but since it was in the middle of a blizzard here, I think I can be forgiven for being drawn to working with warm fuzzy things.

anyhow, there you go.. a bit of an update of why I haven't been on here, and a promise that I'm going to be making a very big effort to get back into the habit! I haven't decided yet if I'll throw my hat in for BSBP#8... I always enjoy them, despite the fact I always end up in a mad crunch to get things finished, but I'm sorting of leaning towards just dealing with my own personally set deadlines and challenges this year. Or at least until I manage to get my butt suitably in gear ;)

I'll be writing again soon and sharing some of what I've been up to jewelry wise. Plus, since I plan on getting a shop of some sort off the ground in the next month or so, I'll be updating you... and getting you guys to keeping poking at me to get it done ;)

 And.. since my last blog post was BEFORE Halloween, I shall leave you with a pic of my jack o'lantern. His name is Dante, and he was inspired by one of my characters from my writing lol


  1. Glad you're back. Been checking from time to time. Life happens and since it wasn't anything terrible - that's good.


  2. I wondered where you wandered off too :) Glad you are getting back into the swing of things.

  3. Yup, she makes very warm scarves and pretty too..thats mine in the photo so don't even think you could get it!!! Mine, mine, mine!!
