I Need An Assistant!!

Have you ever had one of those weeks/months where there were just never enough hours in the day to get everything done? I have been in that situation for over a month now. I have so many summer shows booked and add in all the internet stuff I need to do for my business and Spring cleaning on top of that! I have not even had time to make more charms, or photograph the ones I have left! I am taking a moment to do this post because I just honestly needed to sit for a  minute and this was a better excuse than doing nothing!
At least the one thing I am getting done is creating! I have made so many new pieces and I have so many more in my head waiting to come out through my hands! I have one week left to make a ton of stuff for the show I have next weekend! It's a pretty big one! Summerfest! I can't wait! Now I am mostly just praying for nice weather! This rain is not helping my business.
 I have a show this Saturday in Millet AB, so if you live in that part of Alberta, come visit! I think it's about 20 minutes south of Edmonton. It's absolutely worth the trip to see me! I have sooo many things to show you!
I have been working on a new line under the name of "Goddess". It is made mostly with copper and some brass, but the main ingredient if you will, is recycled silk sari! It is something out of my comfort zone, but I am loving it! It feels so feminine and has so much texture. I love the feel of the silk and I love the visual interest that the copper adds to the silk! It is packed right now and I have no pictures yet, but keep your eyes open and you will see it very soon, I promise!!
Back to work...

I can't wait to see pictures of your new "Goddess" line. I hope you are able to get lots and lots of pretty jewelry made for your shows.

Good luck at the shows!! Your sari silk pieces sound so exciting. Am looking forward to seeing them.

EVERY SINGLE DAY. My friends and family say I just need to get married again (um...no thanks) and I say what I really need is a personal assistant. Preferably one who is incredibly organized, adapts well to random weirdness (like garage floods).
