finally! new work. yay!
two new pieces ( finally ) for ETSY.
i have NO IDEA when i will get the chance to load them. and the group is talking about a summer sale - maybe i will just hold off until that is done. i would love to move some of the old pieces and make way for all the new stuff in my noggin.
i also finished some vintage pieces for ragin' daisy last night. that's been hanging over my head for weeks. they are not hard to make - and i have plenty of lucite left, but i am in beadweaving mode, and i have not wanted to do anything else.
i wish i had more time in the day, you know. i get frustrated very easily that i can't spend my days doing what i want to - bead. i hate going to work every morning and i view most of my time there as wasted. especially when it is as slow as it is now in the hot, humid big sleazy.
but, last night as i drifted off to sleep, i had some pretty good, new ideas for some necklaces. they could come out tacky - but i am going to try them anyway.
i have been in a bit of a rut lately - my work is flat, and everyone else's is very three dimensional. i have always been more drawn to pattern and color than texture and three dimensionality in my work - but lately, i have been wanting to do MORE. i don't know. maybe it's just the rut. the long, hot summer rut. the no sales on ETSY rut. the no sales at the gallery rut. the what have i done with the last 20 years of my life rut. all of the above? probably. anyhoo....
i am back at my bench, and trying some new things. i try to spend as much of my wasted time as i can dreaming up new ideas to get me through the day.
now, just to find time to implement them....
