Just a Little Burned Out

Yesterday and today, I have had no steam. Just a little burned out, I guess. So I have gone on strike in order to play computer games! I've been playing two of my favorites, Civilation IV and The Sims. A few years ago, I got into the Sims because of the creative aspect. I enjoy building the houses and furnishing them! I got a lot of free downloads off the internet. It was shopping without the guilt! So today, I played.

Before I went on strike however, I found Squidoo. I love Squidoo! I warn you it is addicting. You can set up a lens (what they call a page) with your own title, etc. I made one to ShowCase my work (of course). You can find it here. I had so much fun, I am considering some non-jewelry related lenses, when I can find the time. I have also had a lot of fun surfing other people's lenses. There are all kinds of things to be found there. So if you are in need of a new addiction...

I have had some interest in my new tutorials, and have sold several already. I am encouraged. I am beginning to plan my next one...What shall it be? I wanted to go in order of difficulty, sort of like a course in micro macrame.

That would be "Waves" next,
followed by "Criss Cross"


So that is what I think I will stick to.

I still have those new ideas to play with. I have yet to find time to really do them justice, but here is a sneak peak at my first experimentation with one of them.

Believe it or not, this is micro macrame! I think I will have some fun with this one! What do you think?

I know what's wrong with me...I NEED NEW BEADS! New beads would fix everything...maybe I'll just go browse some catalogs...Ummm, bye for now.

Hi Donna ~ I like 'Waves' and look forward to the tutorial. I *love* your last bracelet, it is gorgeous but looks complicated. Go buy some beads - beads are good, and chocolate ;-)

Yummmm, chocolate. It goes without saying, doesn't it? Yes, I think I will get some new beads and some chocolate. Of course, you may not hear from me until I have finished the chocolate, played with the beads, and come out of my chocolate coma!

Thank you for leaving your comment. Hopefully soon, I will have that "Waves" tutorial done. My goal is to have it done within the next couple of weeks.

I really love your freeform bracelet! I think you should definitely try to sell that one on Etsy! Something about it just screams Etsy to me (Very artsy and unique) ;) If you ever make a tutorial on this one I'd love to buy it! Good luck and keep up the good work :)
