A Whistle in My Nose.

well that's what it sounds like when I sniff. And yet again, it would seem like I am getting sick again with allergies, in fact it always seems like that now.

Right now I am just sitting playing on the internet, soon I should have my groceries delivered and will have to put them away. I have some laundry on and then I really should be cleaning the floors, but it will all depend on how I am feeling by then.

My hubby and I spent the weekend in 2 specific areas, looking at houses. Summer spent that time with her grandies. We think we have pretty much decided on where we would like to move to, provided a place that fits our needs is available. We are both ready and excited for a change. So until I have moved, I doubt I will be listing much at Etsy :(

I hardly get any time at the bench. I would like to start making earrings, as I haven't really made many and earrings can be made easily and faster than large pendants/necklaces & rings.
Plus since they are made easily, they can be more affordable.

So though I have my jewllery now in the cube store in Town, I do intend on filling up my Etsy store. Just right now, I can't manage the time to include much being spent at the bench :(

Anyway, here are some pictures of my latest stash of stones:

There are lots of Peachblow Jasper and several Labradorites too.

I did manage to pick up some other stones I haven't worked with yet. I can't wait to get into it all again one day soon! In the meantime I have been trying to take Summer out more, to nice places, since the weather has become nice and comfortable.

This is a picture of Summer at the duck pond last week.

That slice of bread was kinda meant for the duckies, but she wanted to chew on it instead :P

I have made a new chunky PMC3 piece and I fired it last night. I need to solder some jump rings to it, then I can tumble it for a few hours. I'll take pictures when it's all done.

Well that's all for now folks. My bird is making an awful noise outside and it's driving me crazy!!!

Have a great day :)

That is a cute picture of your daughter! I know how hard it is to get time in to work being a Mom myself. But don't fear, the time will come. Your earrings will be fabulous, and they are much easier and almost more gratifying because of their ease. Good luck with everything!

Hi Emma! Glad to finally make it over to catch up! :) I always enjoy reading your posts, but I am a little comforted that I'm not the only one who hasn't been doing much posting lately. After a few involved projects, I was thinking the same thing about earrings! Of course I make even that difficult - made a pair, decided I hate them & took them apart. :D The cabs look beautiful! Summer steals the page though, what a cutie - hope the ducks got some of that bread! Hoping you get some more bench time too, but it's wonderful that you're able to enjoy the outdoors w/ Summer in some more comfortable weather. It's been like August here, which means very hot & humid - just awful. Looking forward to your new piece!
