I'm Baaack

Ok, I'm trying to be back. 

Suffice to say that in the past few months, my life has been a little out of control.

What has been keeping me so busy you may ask? 

Well... the end of February, I took on a new business venture. I'm not at liberty to discuss the details online, suffice to say that I am now in the direct marketing world, hoping to become a home-show queen!!!!(just so you know, it's not vitamins, potions and lotions, candles, make-up, or food items--think bling)
So far I really love it and it keeps me out of trouble(yeah right!!!)

I do miss my clay though, and my plan is to try and eek back into the creating then selling on-line part of my life.
 I really want to get my hands into some clay!!! Darn-it all!!!!
See you soon.

My Friends @ PPCG

I am so, so lucky to be part of this guild...
I found them online, and even though I live in another state, and only see them once a year, they accept me with open arms and hugs every time.
The following is a big event that next year I promise I will attempt to be a part of.
Good Luck!!! I'm thinking about you guys!!!!

Life...What it means to me.

 I need to pass on a little antidote I read a while back, 
It is by genius author Terry Prachett. ...Death is a character, that he often uses (yes, think of the tall skeletal figure in the black cowl-I forgot the title of the book but you can find him here)

Well, Death shows up where naturally, a lady has died. 
She sees Death and is outraged, "What!!!! I'm Dead!" she screams. "But I thought Life was suppose to  flash before your eyes?!?" 
Death smiles his toothy, macabre grin, nods, and states, "Yes, yes, it does, it's called living."

I love this, it says so much. To me, it says that we need to LIVE every moment of every day. 
'But I do.', you might be saying to yourself. But do you really? How often do we notice things like sunsets, pretty flowers or just take a moment from running from task to task to breathe. It's a struggle for me. 

So, keeping that in mind, here are a few of my friends from the Polymer Clay Smoochers Guild  and a couple of things that I stopped to admire and think about LIFE.....
The first is a beautiful Butterfly (I love butterflies) from Lynn and her Artfire store Desert Rubble.

Second, I tend to eat on the fly often pulling through somewhere and downing a burger just for substance. How much better is food when we really sit down and taste it??? It is part of Living.
Having said that, 

These earrings look good enough to eat. Created by Janet Saw with her Artfire store by the same name.
Actually, I could really go for a slice of Chocolate Pie right now (who am I kidding? I could go for a slice anytime!!!!)

Lastly, Valerie with her Artfire shop Valerie's' Stuff.
I love watching the birds, especially now as they return for the beginning of Spring to start having babies. They always look so beautiful in flight.

So, ultimately, the question is this:
Are you taking the time to enjoy your LIFE???
(I hope you were able to answer "yes!!!")

Blizzard Warning .... WHAT????

So, it's the First Day of February, and what is on our plate as we yearn for an early Spring???
Yup, that's right, A FREAKING BLIZZARD....
I want to show off the talents of my wonderful Smoocher Guild friends.

Instead of showing ickie winter things, I'm going to be positive, and show some Summery things like this... 
A coffee lover like me,this is from Lois, owner of ArtFairlyAware
 Artfire shop.

Couldn't turn this one down...(it's what I spend my Summer collecting)
with her Artfire shop by the same name

Keeping with the beach Let's add this...
with her Artfire shop by the same name

And how could I leave the sea without including this...
Isn't she beautiful? She is made by Jane P 
owner of the bluejane Artfire shop.

Well, there you go. Maybe this will make you feel a little warmer...
I know me either, but it was worth a shot right???
Stay warm!!!

Off And Running...

Well, here it is the new year and I am off to an auspicious start.
It took three long months and a massive learning curve but now I am finally selling online. Yay me.

My Handmade Christmas turned out pretty well. I took the pledge and found many of my purchases online at Artfire or Etsy . 

I of course made resolutions, create daily, maintain healthy relationships, don't overspend,*snicker*and the one I break every year EAT HEALTHIER (yeah right!!!!) I just like coffee and chocolate way way too much!  But honestly I am doing a tiny bit better at this (huge achievement after 2 weeks......he-he)
