Contemplating Another Year Gone

As I sit here staring at the blank screen in front of me, purring kitten curled up on my lap, I'm trying to figure out how to write down all the things swirling around in my head before it all escapes back into the aether.

I've had some high moments and some low moments this past year, same as anyone, but mostly it's just been a crazy, monotone buzz line going from Point A to Point B.

My 50th birthday passed without fanfare or celebration which was kind of sad.  I had higher hopes for my half century mark!  I also didn't get to realise a dream I had been hoping for.  Which was even sadder.  Oh well.  As the saying goes ~ "There's always next year".


But, on a brighter note, I have sold several hats and my first piece of art jewellry which thrills the hell out of me!  You can have a look at my mini top hats and art jewellry that's for sale here ~   
Maybe I will become a hatter.  I've already got the 'mad' part well under way!

I think I'm finally coming into my own as far as a jewellry style too.  For so many years I've just basically been a bead stringer.


Now there's nothing wrong with stringing beads and there's nothing wrong with any of the strung bead jewellry I've ever made and am currently selling here ~
It's just, well, a bit understated and sedate and most of it doesn't match my personality at all.  The pieces are very lovely, they're just not me.

The new stuff is far more interesting, edgy, fun and totally me!  Take a look and see if you don't agree ~ http://www.artfire.com/users/BlackSheepBeadery 

And I'm really enjoying making it.  It's sort of vintage trash, boho chic, gypsy goddess, eclectically fabulous!

I'm not looking forward to the next two weeks at all but I'll get to see my sister in January so I will grin and bear it until then.


Thanks for reading/looking.  Leave a comment, send an email, buy some jewellry or a tiny top hat.  Most of all, strive for happiness.

Well, I've got floors to sweep, spam to delete, hats to build and jewellry to fabricate.

Merry Winter Solstice to all ~

Peace, love and light!

You are too funny! I, too, was having the same year end contemplations as you. Then I got distracted with your previous posts. Good luck with your endeavors! The hatpin idea is fab.

Thanks Allison! I've spent so much time in contemplation that I've apparently forgotten all about writing in my blog! LOL!!!!
