Quietly keeping busy….

…how would you know? I don’t think I’ve ever gone so long without paying attention to my blog. I’ve been busy, but that’s not really an excuse. So, I’m jumping back in with a few photos of some things I have been doing the last 2 months. Now blogging will once again be one of them.

Things like drilling LOTS of rocks for future necklaces and bracelets. (Way more than these!)IMGP6264


I’ve been keeping up with writing my column in the Working Waterfront.IMGP6265

I’ve worked on a lot of beads made from fine silver Precious metal clay.IMGP4296

And, I’ve tried to get comfortable with drawing. Trying everything from drawing from real life, to drawing from a photo, to drawing from scribbles to drawing with my left hand. I joined a FB group of (mostly) metal clay artists who are trying to draw every day. We post our drawings and encourage each other. It seems like we have made the transition from feeling embarrassed by our attempts to having fun with them. And that was the whole point!

So there’s a bit of a catching up on my winter events. Tomorrow (March 15) is our annual Town Meeting for the Town of Cranberry Isles. School budgets, road budget, all the money the town will borrow, raise and spend in the next year will be decided on by voters tomorrow. In the past few years I have served as the moderator for the meeting. I will be spending the rest of this evening brushing up on some rules of procedure and the priority of motions; that sort of thing, to be ready in case I am nominated to serve again tomorrow. It’s a wicked stressful good time!

    So impressed with your drawing Barb. I once took lessons and found that if I really looked…it was possible….that was a long time go. Keep on keepin’ on!
