Remembering...

I was sitting here remembering some of the things that made me the happiest. I feel like it has been too long since I have done anything for my business so I am here reminding myself and maybe some of you out there in cyberland that I did some noteworthy things and that I really need to start again. It's really me that needs the reminder. I have gotten some lovely emails from people out there telling me how much they miss seeing my new pieces and how they hope I will get back to it again.
I am still here, I have not forgotten how my hands work, I just need them to feel inspired. I felt a touch of inspiration over Christmas, I made some nice things for people on my Christmas list. It felt good. I ran out of time to take pictures of course, I am still not set up to tale any really. I moved my studio again. I was a little scattered around the house and now I am almost done organizing my new space. It is coming, the return to creativity. I want to get my hands dirty so to speak ;) I am almost ready. I have less pain in my hands now and I hope it stays away. I have to start back slow.
I have posted a couple pictures that I was able to pull up from the internet. I never did recover anything from my computer, so I lost all my pictures. I am moving on from that, I have a new year ahead of me to make new things and take new pictures.
I am realizing that this post is pretty random and somewhat depressing. Ugh! I need something fun to happen! lol Maybe I will start submitting to publications again... I miss getting the emails saying something was accepted. It has been so long! I remember the exhilaration it gave me!
So what is next? I don't really have a plan. I think I will just see where creation takes me. I do have some pendants started...maybe I will start by finishing those...

See you soon!

Yea! You are here! I am glad that you are carving out a creative space again and getting back to what you love and know. We all go through what I call 'fallow seasons' when the land is overtilled and the nutrients are gone where the soil can just rest and reconnect to Mother Earth and get ready for new seeds to be planted and ideas to sprout! You are in the fallow season now. I am, too. But I do want to get my hands dirty and today I am making flowers from metal for a gallery exhibit I am hoping to get into called 'Winter's Garden' and just heard word that all of my pieces submitted to a magazine are being called in for further consideration! Woohoo! Wishing you (and me) many creative challenges and opportunities in this new year. Enjoy the day, Miss Marie! Thinking of your (and freezing my patootie off!) ;-) Erin

It is just so good to see you posting again! New designs are great but it is more important to know that you are alive and well.

So good to hear your voice in the blogosphere again, Marie. Like Erin said so much more eloquently, we do go through cycles and phases in our lives... and that's ok...or at least that's life. Here's to entering a new, hopeful, and creative phase for 2014!
