Things seemed to go from busy to busier and busier this Summer, and many things (like writing in my blog) fell off the list as I tried to pack in as much as possible during my Summer break. The biggest shift was moving to a new house. I spent much of June packing up our things at our old house, and riding my bike over to the new place several times a week to get a garden planted. I then most of July unpacking and settling in to our new place.
This year ended up being a fantastically productive year for the local fruit trees, so I was canning like crazy to take advantage of the Summer's bounty, and have a pantry full of delicious jams and jellies to show for all my work.
I still managed to make some lovely jewelry pieces in my new studio, but didn't spend as much time working as I normally do.
School started in August, and my class load has kept me hopping! I am taking 16 credits, with two studio classes, so any free time I get goes to studying or working on class projects. Even though I am not making much jewelry, I am reveling in creating in my painting and ceramics classes! I have painted on and off for years, so this is an on time for me, and I have wanted to learn to make pottery since I was a little girl, and I LOVE it!
My next break from classes won't be until Thanksgiving, so I don't know how often I will post here, but I will try to share the fun things I am making with you, even if it is just a few words and some pictures. Hope you all are well and enjoying this life!
all the best,
I have always loved making things with my hands. It has always amazed me that I am able to take an image in my mind and make it come into form. Like magic!
I will never have enough time to create all the wonderful things waiting to come to life from my imagination, but you can see a few of the lucky ones that actually get made here.
I hope they bring a bit of joy to your day!
Thanks for looking!
