Grad School

It has been a while since I've blogged, I have been sooo busy. The artist's studio tour is this coming weekend and I have been working diligently on my jewelry and paintings in preparation for the tour. I have to tag everything by tomorrow so I could concentrate on cleaning up my studio this week.
I am also hosting the UVAs meeting at my house this Fri.! Like I said, soooo busy. One great piece of news is that my group is going to be featured in a magazine. I can't wait to see.

I've also been asked to have a jewelry show at the store where my jewelry is sold. The only bad thing is that the show would be on Mother's Day weekend. I am going to try and work on some new things for that show. I have several ideas, but I haven't had time to sit down and experiment.
I am looking forward to summer vacations. I am eager to paint and create new jewelry without the added pressure of work. The piece that is pictured is a small watercolor collage that I made just to relax and keep the creative juices at bay. I have several paintings I'd like to start on right away, but I have to take care of business first.

Oh, I almost forgot, I find out this week if I have been accepted to grad school. Keep your fingers crossed.

'Till next time :)

I'm sitting here, listening to the wind roar outside. We have 60mph winds and so my allergies are having a field day. Since I don't feel up to working on my jewelry I thought I'd just show you the last few pieces in my collection. These were some of the pieces I had at my exhibit. I added some enameling in my pieces and I have to say that I really like how they look. I especially like the one with the blue. I think I might just keep it for myself.
I want to create some bracelets, I just havn't quite decided on the style. Maybe I'll sit and sketch while I watch Project Runway with my daughter.
I'm still preparing for the Artist's Tour which is three weeks away. I have my house to clean, my studio rearranged and jewelry to make. Yes, I am stressing a bit. I hope to have my bracelets in time for the tour. Wish me luck!
