Sometimes, when you are the most busy and stressed is when you have the best creative moments. There is a lot going on right now! Jon and I leave for Belize soon. I have to start packing, shop for last minute things, give myself a pedicure, get the house in order, meet with our house/dog sitter, and get caught up at work. I also have to supervise/help Jon with installing a new pool pump/filter, arrange for a car he sold get out to California, and he even talked about getting mulch! Yikes!
So the last thing I should have been doing last night was make jewelry - but I just couldn't help it. Once I got into the studio, I was in a zone and I got so much done! This morning, I took pictures of it all and listed 8 items on Etsy! It's a good feeling to know too, that this can go into my stock for the Art Fair in June. Because when we get back, we'll just be back into a whirlwind of busy-ness. I hope we get well rested and relaxed! June is busy with Bead & Button and then the Art Fair.
Some people asked the outcome of my dilemma the other day, so here it is..... The lady emailed me to ask if I'd have time to fix the bracelet. I figured ok - here is my chance. I kindly emailed her back to let her know the next few months would be very busy for me with travel and other jewelry business. She simply replied "that's fine" but I didn't know how to take it.... should I take it as yes, she understood - or sarcastically? That's the problem with email, right? Well, I later learned that she took the bracelet to another co-worker of ours - a good friend of mine who I craft with quite often - to see if she would fix it. I asked my friend if she was mad, and I told her that I didn't think this should become her problem. But she said she was not mad, told the lady she would fix it but couldn't guarantee it wouldn't happen again. At least this time no beads are missing. Ugh! I have over analyzed this way too much and I just have to let it go. This lady is certainly one of those people that you will never please no matter what you do.
So, enjoy the eye candy below and have a great weekend!
