..this has been such a crazy year! It has been difficult to keep everything in order with moving, fixing the house and keeping the business up and running and running well. Additionally, I have wanted to live a more balanced life, but I also know that the holiday season is probably not a good time to try to read and walk several times a day, keep up with household chores, call friends and family to chat, and start a new exercise program. Might be a bit much.
However, I am still trying to find a little balance. My non-handcrafted business time is basically spent on household chores. That's okay for now. We try to watch some funny shows and movies in the evening to alleviate some of the stress and intense focus we experience during the day. The Big Bang Theory is one of our favorites. Here is a short clip from the show. If you haven't had a chance to watch the show, it's hilarious.
The new year will allow us to take stock, plan for the upcoming year and thankfully, we won't be moving next year!! Yippee!!
A quick note about the supplier issue I talked about last time. (Do other people have these same issues? Sometimes, when things go awry, I wonder if this is the right thing for me to be doing. I love making the jewelry and frames, but sometimes it is sooooooo frustrating.) At any rate, I have now ordered from several different suppliers to see how their seal works. Meanwhile, our good seal is quickly running out. Not a great time of year for that to happen, but I will just take a deep breath and do the best I can (my current phrase of choice).
So, I thought I'd share some of our Christmas jewelry and I just finished a couple of our Santa art frames. We put the frames up each year around our house with family pictures and pet photos. Fun and colorful.
