Things have been a little crazy at my house lately. I am getting that "I really need a break" feeling lol! My oldest (19) just left for a trip to Tahiti which kind of freaked me out a bit lol! Its not a vacation but a research trip for a college biology class. (Ya I know, if you have to work, you might as well do it in Tahiti lol). This was his first time flying and his first time out of the country so it was a little hard on mom! However I am so glad that he has the opportunity to do something like this! He will be back in a couiple of weeks.
My youngest (almost 16) is learning to drive. I have to say I was a lot more nervous with her than I was with my son (because I know both of my children very well lol!) and I have been very pleasantly surprised by how well she is doing! Still nerve wracking but not nearly as bad as I expected!
Summertime is always busy with all the added outdoor activities (since its only nice around here for about 5 to 6 months of the year we have to sqeeze all the fun stuff into that time lol). I am also working on REALLY cleaning out the house, all the STUFF that has accumulated over the years that we don't use needs to go! And working a day job and finding time to make new pieces on top of all of this is proving to be difficult. Not to mention doing a semi regular blog post.
I am working on a whole new technique and am really loving it (in what little time I can squeeze out lol). I have taken up metal etching and am beyond thrilled that I can now combine my love of metal and jewelry making with my love of drawing. AND I can also use this combined with bezel setting my cabs etc so its really the best of both worlds. I am sooo excited lol!
