I used to care about shopping. Now, as I’m preparing for marriage and a new life, I don’t care. I went to bed before 10 tonight because I was exhausted from eating all day and running around with the cousins’ kids… yes, playing Smash Bros is exhausting. 😉 So I crashed for about 4 hours and then woke up around 2. I thought, “Hey, I can go order some beads and then hop back into bed.” My favorite glass bead supplier is having a Black Friday 40% off sale. I figured it would be worth getting out of bed. But then after I finished my shopping, I hopped back into bed and couldn’t sleep. Sent Jesse a bunch of random emails, then decided to throw out some stuff and make piles. After laying in bed, cold and hungry, I decided to eat a snack. Now I’m posting before I try to go back to sleep.
Using Grace’s beads in my designs make my heart sing. Today I randomly picked up a bracelet off my almost empty shelf and it went perfectly with my outfit (score!). It was a Harmony bracelet with stones, crystal, and Grace beads. Awesome. It reminded me of how skilled I am when my heart is in my work… I’ve been distracted lately because of the wedding and the rest of life getting in the way, but I do feel that creative itch I’ve been missing for so long. I suspect as soon as I get my new studio setup going, I’ll be back in the saddle in no time. 🙂
Okay, I suppose I should sleep now… I hope. 😛
Oh hey, Jesse and I have been engaged for a year now. ❤
