Yesterday Was a Good Day

I was working on a couple of orders yesterday, and then I took some time to play. Play time is my favorite time on the torch, and I haven’t had nearly enough of it. These are my favorites from that session.. I need to wire them up this morning, and a couple are being added to a new Traveller Series necklace, then they’ll be going up on Etsy later today. 🙂

Moving Right Along…

I’ve chosen an opening date : November 29th. Black Friday.
The busiest shopping day of the year… though most likely, not for me. But that’s OK.
I thought it was a good day to remind folks to shop local. This gives me a good month to get stocked up, and it’s still a week
before White Christmas in West Brookfield, which will indeed be a busy day!

So… as far as renovations go, I’m awaiting the installation of my new windows, and I’ve still got a bit of painting to do,
and my signs are ordered. It’s coming together so quickly! I’ve got a few appointments with sales reps scheduled, and that
is lots of fun!

So…. time ticks on, and life is GOOD!

Oh Right, I have a blog… better get on that.

It’s been a while. I’m slowly waking up from my time off, and starting to get back to work. For a while there, I was running out of steam and inspiration, and instead of getting worried about it, I took some time off to get my head together, and make room for new ideas.

My muse has returned from wherever she wandered off to. She hasn’t told me where she travelled, but it has something to do with ancient places and magical realms. When she started unpacking her bags, all of these wonderful forms and textures tumbled out, and I’ve been helping her document and archive them. Now it’s time to put them to work. It feels good.

So, it’s into the studio today with a solid plan and overflowing inspiration….

Thank you, my beautiful Muse, and welcome home.
