Having Fun

I've always loved to give.....I absolutely love the excitement or pleasure on someone's face. I love to make people happy. I guess it goes back to the "Golden Rule" treat people as you would like to be treated. I have thoroughly enjoyed giving away the few items I have given away, this brings me so much joy I see a lot more give aways coming.....if you haven't won anything yet keep trying...

It's funny jewelry makes me happy, creating it makes me happy, the colors and shapes and textures of beads make me happy. I truly enjoy what I do. I love each piece I create. They are sometimes hard to let go, it's saying goodbye to my friend. However, you know what? You will hardly ever see me wearing a piece of's not that I don't like it, or like to wear it...I never seem to have the time to find the right piece, or haven't made the right piece for me. Mostly I put them up on Etsy to sell. Once I list them, I put them in an airtight , sealed bag with an anti-tarnish strip, so I'm not constantly polishing jewelry! So they are not easily accessible for me to wear so unless I make the piece for myself.......I don't have any to wear. As in my crazy life I always seem to put myself last. Trying to get my business off the ground, making jewelry, babysitting 3 children, taking care of my daughter, and my husband, running a household, just doesn't leave much time for myself! I need to learn how to balance it all. If you have any pointers please share them with me, I know I'm not the only person who's always last!

Look for next weeks favorite artist/items .... I enjoy sharing things I like. There's so much of it out there!!
