Well it has been more than a month but I am still here.This is a bracelet that a customer bought from me several months ago and she wanted me to make her a necklace to match it so I had to give it a try.
Here is the necklace which is almost done. It does not have the clasp on it yet because she is coming over this afternoon to test the length.
And this lovely large thing is a footstool I have spent the last two days getting stuffed. I thought I never would fill up it's carnivorous insides. I got the pattern last time I was in Omaha and Lincoln with my friend Jodie. It was really easy just took forever to stuff.

Now as to where I have been. I have been right here trying to work every day, but it has not been happening very well. I seem to have been in some kind of a funk for the last month or better. It is a creative thing I think but I also have not really felt well so I do not know if it is really one or the other. I have had little funks like this before but usually I start getting more ideas than my head will allow and I get out of them. This one seems to be hanging on for the long haul. My friend Jodie and I set goals for this next month and one of mine is to blog much much more to hopefully work all this out. Any way see you again in a couple of days I promise.

I completely empathize and sympathize. I struggle with depression and even with meds it sometimes gets the better of me. Also, doing a bunch of special orders (which are really super) can take the creativity right out of me! Blogging definitely helps me to vent and removes one more item from my to do list! Don't give up, we are still here reading and enjoying the eye candy you give us!

Cool foot stool by the way, and that would be a great use for all those silly packing peanuts you get in boxes!

Thanks again Stephanie. The footstool works really really well makes it much nicer on my hips at night.
