I’ve just spent four (4!) days in a row in the studio. This fall has been so full of other things that it seems like forever since I’ve been able to work for four days straight.  It was total bliss. I’m getting ready for my third annual visit to Val’s in a few weeks, along with finishing up some other commitments.

The recent bead show in Ellsworth was a blast and I learned a lot from the experience. I sold very little jewelry that weekend, but I did watch many of my little packages of beads head off to fresh new creative homes. It was a great way to clean my studio of the beads I no longer use, while offering bead buyers some great bargains. I would definitely do it again.

Is it just me, or is this fall whizzing by  much faster than usual?

    yes, indeed, this autumn is speeding by with unprecedented speed. maybe it’s just the move and catching up for me. i’ve spent days on end in the studio. it has felt so good. it must feel good to you as well. like a welcome retreat.

      I’m glad to know you’ve had lots of studio time lately, LeAnn. You are so right. It is a welcome retreat. I am sorry to hear about your mother. My own mom is changing rapidly with some form of dementia. It’s hard to keep up with it. Phone calls have become confusing for her. A huge change. I guess it’s more of learning to let go of more and more rather than trying to keep up with it.
