Ordering instead of Creating
So Monday finds me ordering supplies rather than creating anything. Ordered more jewelry supplies, particularly for stamping jewelry. I was tempted to take the leap of buying some supplies for enameling some of my pieces to be used in my jewelry but just not quite ready yet. We will see what this week brings though, may not be able to hold myself back, the temptation of adding more color to my pieces may become overwhelming because as you can see in most of my creations I love using color.
The upside of all of this ordering besides getting fun things to play with, is that I had enough money in my business account to pay for it. That means I have made enough off of my paintings and art jewelry that I can buy my own supplies. That always feels good as a creative person, especially someone who has a family and does not want to take out of house money.
Today's pictures are of some pieces, I have for sale locally, but would be happy to recreate these for you.
On a personal note, Monday also finds me advocating for my daughter who has aspergers. Trying to talk to the school to get some things in place to help her want to be there more. So the struggle to try to take some anxiety out of her day continues, PE and lunch recess are her hurdles that have to be lowered for now. You never know where life is going to take you, so make the most of everyday and every good opportunity. I also doctored my son, who feels he has a cold coming on and played a matching game, colored a picture and have started a reading program with my youngest. Man, I am spent (in a few ways)...
