WOW, Where Did The Year Go?

Well, for all my good intentions to stay caught up, it does not seem to be working.
Alot has happened since my last post. I have visited Tonopha Nevada and mined turquoise, as well as Jasper. I have taught classes inFrench Beaded Flowers. I have joined the Arlington Gem and Mineral Society and started making my own cabs again. I have sold several pieces of jewlery, mainly bracelets which I enjoy making. I attended the Dallas Eggshibit International and placed an egg in competition there. ( did not do too well, but enjoyed the learning experience) I have joined ebay and placed a few pieces of my jewlery there to be sold hopefully. I an looking for a few other venues to sell my stuff at also. We have gotten the web pages for the business back up on line and are getting the photos up as well. I will be attending the egg show in San Antonio in October with hopes that I can get a dealer table and sell supplies for making some of the eggs. I am looking at adding the Fimo candies, and the kits for the jewlery boxes as well as having some new eggs done. I also have a design for an egg that would have Fimo fruit in or on it, I think that it would be very cute. I also want to sew up some more of my mini teddie bears which I think could be used in eggs also.
What I am really afraid of, is that I will end up with lots of stuff and no one will buy them.
I need to teach Rebecca B. and Theresa A. how to do wiring and they also want to learn how to make the fimo candies.
I have two classes with Maggie Miester this weekend, and then in two weeks I go with all my friends to Create-A-Way cottage for a weekend of fun and beading. I hope that I can get some of my wirewrapping done since Betty will be there and she and I can put our two heads together and come up with something.
I am hoping this fall that I can start taking the silversmithing courses with the Arlington Gem and mineral society. I think that I could learn alot and would have fun in the process. I have lots of ideas, but not sure that I can implement them.
I would also like to take the wirewrapping class from them. Hopefully they will offer it again cause right now I have a scheduling conflict with the class being offered and Create-A-Way. This club is very active and I really enjoy the time that I spend there. Just love the smell of oil from the saws and the noise of the polishers. The thrill of taking a stone that is rough and uncut and then cutting and polishing it into a cab is wonderful. You never really know how they will turn out, but that becomes part of the process of doing them. I have so many stones and slabs to cut and polish, that I will be here forever doing them. I love polishing by hand because I feel that the stone is talking to me and I can tell what it wants to become.
(Ok, there is my insanity talking)
I still have not finished my classes at Penn and Foster. I need to get on the computer and get this work done. I know I can do it, but have just been procrastinating. So time to get with the program.
I also have a few quilts that I want to get done. there never seems to be enough hours in the day, but I need to better plan my schedule and make it happen. ( but not over-night).
So there you have it. time to get busy and do some peyote to make a really cute amulet bag,
Happy beading.
