Its About Time!

So, last year when I changed webhosts for my website I couldn't figure out how to link over my blog to my email accounts and I haven't been able to log in to update in EONS.  I don't know what possessed me to attempt to figure out how to get back into my blog....but...I'm here.  *grin*

So much has changed in the last 9-12 months, I'm not sure if I can even write a quick synopsis, so I'll just stick to recent events.  The last month has been atrocious, frankly.  All three of my girlie-girls came down with the flu at the same time on Christmas...and that was after a week with one of my girls with a high fever virus.  Poor thing was soooo sick.  We are still struggling to get completely healthy, but, we're almost there.  Hopefully, Lord willing, my last sickie will be fever free today and then we're home free.  *grin*

It has been weeks since I have even truly had the desire to create jewelry, though I am *finally* starting to putz around in my studio again.  The first thing that I need to do is to CLEAN!!!  Oh my word my studio is a wreck.  Its embarrassing.  It needs a complete overhaul.  (Anyone want to come clean it for me??!! HAHA!)  I even need to pack up some of my tools that I no longer use, or haven't touched in years.  Mainly my soldering goodies.  One of these days when the girls are older and I have more time in the studio (HA!) I'll haul all my soldering stuff back out and get back into soldering.  I do miss it...but not enough to keep it all out.  *grin* 

Over the last year I have slowly been adding more of my gemstone overstock into my Gems shop and I'm thrilled that ya'll have been taking advantage of my listings and have been helping to clear out my overstock!  THANK YOU to all my awesome Gems customers!! I will continue to add more and more as time permits.

Not only does my studio need a complete overhaul, ha, but my Etsy shop has needed an overhaul badly.  So I have retired some pieces and put quite a few older pieces on CLEARANCE with prices slashed up to 40% to 50% off.  My website has also been updated accordingly.  Now if I can just remember how to update the picture on my home page.....HA!  I'll figure it out eventually.  *grin*

And now my writing time has come to an end.  HA  Now that I can get back into my blog, hopefully I'll write more often! *grin*
