And I haven't posted in a long time!

We're almost done with the snow... I hope... March is almost over, but we're "not out of the woods" yet. I've seen it snow in late April.. and even witnessed a few flakes on a rare day in May.

The Snowy scene above.. was just a few weeks ago. It was a White-knuckle drive to work.. but wet roads and Sun on the way home that day.

Anyway.... I reallly admire those of you, who manage to keep a wonderful Blog. Full of life and information. ....and keep it current! HOW DO YOU DO IT???

I've been away from art, but did get to make some jewelry. While I was at the Salon, my hair stylist Dawn, asked about the bracelet I was wearing. When I told her that I had made it, She got excited telling me how much the girls loved jewelry and she suggested that I bring some in to sell. I took her up on the offer and the first batch was quickly snatched up by the stylists. I was really excited that they liked it so much and requested I make more! I just delivered the third batch. I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I'm anxious to see what sold..

My daughter Allison's wedding is just 4 months away!

I've been busy designing Shower invites and well as her wedding invitations. I'll be designing the jewelry for her girls..... as well as her necklace too.. which just thrills me!

So much to do! and the time is really flying by and the wedding day will be here in no time at all!

I'm also trying to figure out what the heck to wear! Trying to find something that's "ME"... and not typical "Mother of the Bride" looking outfit. It's an outdoor reception... so I need to be cool and comfortable!

I'm thrilled that the days are longer, even if not warmer....yet. But I know the real Spring is on it's way. I'm also looking forward to those wonderful April showers.. and a thunderstorm or two?

We had a really cool Thunderstorm in February! It was strange seeing the Lightning, hearing Thunder... all while there was 4 inches of snow on the ground! It was exciting none the less.

Soooo... a lot has been happening!

I really want to get back to my art. But I think these (exciting) distractions are keeping me from focusing on sitting and creating for creating sake. The good news is... new ideas have been popping in my head. I make sure to write the ideas down for when I'm ready to get back. I really thought I had lost my "Mo Jo"....!.. we'll see.

Another Monday is just on the horizon.

Have a great week. I hope to be back again soon!
