the halfway mark
i'm always a little befuddled when we make it through 1/2 of the year. this year i'm particularly remiss that i have YET to clean up the 2009 files from my office. cough. embarrassing but true. [the office continually ends up at the bottom of my list of things i must accomplish. maybe if i talk about it here i'll actually get to cleaning it].
last week was also no fun in the studio department. i just didn't get very much done. let's be honest and say almost NOTHING got done. this makes for a cranky me. it also stresses me out as i feel like i have that much more to catch up on.
i don't see deadlines the same way i used to. i can't pull all nighters right before one to finish everything up. i've become the the turtle. slow and steady. and so when i'm not on "pace" the butterflies start to gather.
i did make these necklaces for a couple of friend's birthdays.
sometimes making jewelry is just so much more rewarding and instantly gratifying than making anything else.
in another life i wish i was a jeweler - or a flower arranger. if you could have any occupation what might it be????????
fun things in internet land:
ONE: whip up is doing a mini quilt-a-thon - and giving more copies of the mini quilts book away [see it on chronicle books].
TWO: my dear friend shanna is hosting a remember your granparents week on her blog. i was today's guest. read here
THREE: sadly i did not play along this year, but poppytalk just finished her summer color week . if you have time to kill go look at the flickr pool . such gorgeousness
i've been trying to keep up the habit on flickr.... but this month you can play along with habit . for all of july post your photos/words [30 or less] in the habit pool . molly and emily will pick participants. [this pool is another great way to waste some time]
hope everyone is well....
