I always enjoy meeting new people and what I enjoyed more was meeting people that have bought my work at one of the shops where my work is sold.
Til next time!

I participated in a new venture this past weekend. The city of El Paso now has an artist market down town. It was long over due and I sure am glad I have another outlet for my work. I sold out of my jewelry two weeks ago in Galveston and so I am frantically trying to make more pieces. Very difficult to do when I have a full time job, am the director for our city UIL visual art event and am the founder of a female artist group. Whew! I need more hours in the day.
This is why I love creating art and making my jewelry, it is my therapy, my saving grace. Along with my kids, of course.
Hope your week is going well.

I spent a few days at Galveston, TX for the annual TAEA conventions. Art Educators from around the state gather and give workshops and share ideas. It is such a rush to be surrounded by such talented people. I love it! This year TAEA had its very first artist market. I participated and sold my jewelry on Fri. I had a wonderful response to my work and quickly sold my pieces, with the exception of just a few. I also made many new acquaintances.
While in Galveston I visited many great attractions, but my favorite place was the Antique Market. Oh, I was in heaven. So many great things to see, I think I might have giggled a bit. If you are ever in the area, the Antique Market is a must to see.

When does everyone get a piece of the pie? I won't give up, it is not in my nature, but there are times when I slow down considerably and the doubt starts to settle in...

It is hard to believe that my neighbors to the north are under severe freezing conditions, here I am in a t-shirt enjoying the nice weather.
I hope you are keeping warm.

This is a variation to a piece I made last Feb. They were very popular and I decided to make some for next weekends art show. I am extremely behind, I don't think I will be able to finish all of the pieces I had wanted to make. I also want to make new displays, but I'm not sure if that will happen either. Too much going on this week.
I am looking forward to this show. After taking a brief hiatus from art shows, I have decided it is time to get back to them. When you sell to shops, you miss the connection you make with shoppers. I have missed it. I hope they have missed me to :)

I'm preparing for several art shows and craft shows. I created the two pieces pictured above with several left over polymer beads that I had created for another piece. I hope they are received well by buyers.
Until next time.

I share Frida's sentiment. We are just hanging out today. I've returned to work and every new school year takes some adjusting. I havn't touched any of my jewelry for a good three weeks, but I'm planning on returning to my studio on Monday.
I made a difficult decision last week. I have decided to pull my jewelry out of one of the shops where it is sold. My jewelry sells in six shops and I just can't keep up. I find that I am so busy trying to produce enough work, that my work is beginning to suffer. I don't want that to be the case.
The shop owner did not take it to well, and even though I have tried to explain my decision she became rude and defensive. She asked me to leave my work for another month, so I am left in an akward situation.
I just hope things work out well in the end.
In other news: I've lost 7lbs! I know, doesn't sound like much, but i feel and look so much better. I've been going to a gym three to four times a week and doing better at watching what I eat. Even though I am still baking these delicious cakes. It is all about portions.
This particular cake has melted ice cream mixed into the batter.

It is truly a chocolate lovers dream. It has chocolate fudge, chocolate pudding and 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips.
That piece you see there is waiting for me along with a cup of milk. Extra time at the gym tomorrow.

OK, enough of my musings.
I created these new pieces and have yet to decide where I should place them. Etsy or one of the shops? I'm creating a "line" of the pieces shown above and am creating some "cultural" pieces also. I have slowed down a bit lately, I better get with it because I will be returning to work very soon.
