I can't tell you how long I've had the urge to sit down at the computer and catch up. It feels like months. But I must admit my desire to stay sane these days has overridden my desire to write. Sure there are times when juggling all the balls is doable. The kids get to school on time. I get in a good workout. I run my errands, make phone calls, ship orders, and on a good day, spend a few hours in the studio. But then there are those times when the schedule gets hectic and balls start dropping. Throw in a few extra soccer games, birthday parties, out of town guests - surprise! - and that balancing act is a distant memory. The last few weeks have been crazy. Not a bad crazy. Just busy and something had to give. Sadly, blogging has been one of the things I've had to put on the back burner. Unfortunately, things don't look any quieter over the next few weeks so this post will have to be short and to the point. I promise I'll have more to say and more time to say it in soon but for now here are a few photos of recent projects.
The bottles above and below are for an upcoming Holiday Soiree at Blissful Home. I just love the way they look en masse.
A difficult bottle to photograph but one of my favorites. The beautiful blue color of the glass coupled with the bleach white starfish makes me yearn for my beloved beach.
These 2 are already sold but I thought I'd share them anyhow. Don't worry - there's plenty more where that came from!
Switching gears a bit now. Here are a couple of windows that I've repurposed. The window titled "Foundation" was done last year but was recently uncovered in storage. I'll get it in the shop soon. No really, I will. And the window titled "Bloom" is a custom piece for an avid gardener. I hope she approves! And by the way, can I just tell you how hard it is to get a good shot of windows. Jeez, the reflections are enough to make me nuts!
That's it for now. Tomorrow it's a soccer game. A lunch date. A princess party for my birthday girl Rylie. Happy birthday princess! And then a private party with family. I just dropped a few more balls!
Have a great weekend. XXOXOO
