I'm still here!

Yes, I'm still here and posting again.  Trying to continue with my new commitment to blog.  I do enjoy writing, so that isn't an issue at all.  Just trying to get more things in my life in order so that I can get busy with making beads and jewelry.

My day/night job keeps me busy.  I do overnight care (24 hours), generally 2-3 days in a row for the elderly.  It really is a fulfilling job and I enjoy it.  I also work part time at a local retail department store chain, so I am a bit busy.  I'm slowly cutting back on my part time job so that I can focus on my jewelry.  Especially with being accepted into my first art show.  Add to that the 12 credits of college I tried to take so that I could graduate this spring.  I gave it a good try, but didn't quite make it.  Will have one class left this fall to take and then I should be able to get my Jewelry Design and Repair Certificate!!!!

So this afternoon I spent doing some research on Victorian dresses.  I found some great photos and also a couple places that sell patterns that could/would work.  Going to make a trip to Joann's Etc before I make a final selection on an outfit.

I'm still trying to figure out the new blog and adding photos and hopefully will get that figured out soon.  I'd like to start adding photos of items that I'm working on or photos of things that I'm blogging about.  Hopefully soon.
