I'm Back

I really can't stand when I'm away from blogging and reading the blogs I stalk. I've been busy. My husband was out town last week and is out of town again this week. This is now 11 weeks since January that he has been away. We've also been traveling back and forth to my in-laws house. The kids are getting lots of quality time with grandma and grandpa.
I've also been busy trying to market my artwork. I'm constantly taking pictures and writing copy for the website. I don't know how anyone does a website from scratch. It's a lot of work. I'm still trying to organize the craft cave and my life for that matter! I think I've finally gotten over my fear of speaking with store owners. I really just want to sell my first piece.
I have managed to make some new jewelry. Above is my new phase "funky chunky" bracelets. There are lots of components: semi-precious stones, shell, Swarovski crystals, Czech crystal, lampwork beads, and vintage beads. I could make a million of these and I probably will until I move on to my next phase.

Hi Nerissa
Well we are in the same boat! My hubby has also been away aLOT this year already, last week he was away for 4 days and the two weeks before that for a week and now going again this week or next. Sucks.
I love your bracelts you make-very pretty. I am also into making jewrelly but just simple beaded bracelts, necklaces and watch straps.
