An Update, New Feature and Echo Creative Club

Hey there my amazing and oh so patient blog friends.  I know I have been absent and quiet the past few months but in a nutshell here is why...

I was honored to make some gorgeous pieces for my friends that were vending at Beadfest this year.

My amazing and sweet daughter worked an internship, was hired and had to moved out. This all happening within a 4 day time frame and then a week of  shopping to make sure she has all she needs.

We went to Beadfest in August where frankly my world got a bit more complicated in a very good way!!!!

My computer got sick and I was without it for 3 weeks!  I just got all the things loaded last night so that I could upload pictures.  I am still working getting the camera to talk it but that should be resolved tonight.

So with that said I can not which of gorgeous pieces I am working with but hopefully it will be completed by the 25th as planned!


Now I want to tell you about my plans for my blog posts.  First I will tell you that I am going to be focusing more here because frankly I miss my blog.  Being without my computer and not being able to really interact on FB was VERY enlightening!  So I have decided to go back to pattern reviews as well as an artist spotlight.  My Spotlight will focus on what I know.  Whether it is a shop I have had dealings with, art components that I have had the pleasure of using or a designer I love and this will be all my opinions and thoughts and I will not be contacting the artist before hand.

So that is what is up with me!

What is up with you?

  5. I actually believe it is good to take a break. And I don't even know when they are about to happen. I just do it. And it feels good. Glad to 'hear' you again! Looking forward to reading your posts. Love the little polymer clay leaves, too! Makes me smile knowing that the leaves around here will be turning very soon! Enjoy the day. Erin

  6. Hey there Kristen! Nice to hear what is going on in your world. Must be strange to have your baby girl move out! But you give them "wings to fly, and roots to come home".
