So sorry about Darwin, it's the worst thing to have to decide to euthanize a loved pet. I thought I'd never recover, but we ended up with another dog in less than three months. Prozac: I hear you about the loss of creativity. For me it was like there was a slight shim between me and the world. Nothing really bothered me too much. So I switched to Cymbalta about 6 weeks ago and I think I like it. It was amazing to realize what Prozac had done to mute all emotions.

Sunday was my first arts/crafts show. How was it? Exhausting, a learning experience, and this particular show I don't feel too excited about doing again, at least in Kirkland. I sold five things, but two of them were to my father-in-law, so I'm not sure whether to count those or... Continue reading

That hyperventilating you heard on Monday? That was me, enduring one of a series of freakouts about the first I Heart Indie show I'm doing this Sunday in Kirkland, 12-4, at the Lake St. Bar & Grill. I've come back to a more even keel the past couple of days,... Continue reading

This past weekend I took a two-day workshop at Pratt, "Creating Forms on the Hydraulic Press" with Virginia Causey. I've taken classes with Virginia in the past and she knows so much that it is sometimes difficult to keep her on track. Tidbits of highly useful info are interspersed with... Continue reading

So I was checking my Google Analytics account on Saturday, and noticed that page views for one of my Etsy items, a chalcedony ring, had skyrocketed. Went to Craftcult and, sure enough, it had been featured in the Storque blog. Sweet! Fame and fortune will be mine ... someday. In... Continue reading

Must admit, I totally stole this idea from the host of the EtsyRain Meetup yesterday in the Etsy Virtual Labs, but what a great one - thank you Sara of Girls Can Tell! If you know of a sweet little shop, in your town or anywhere you've visited recently, that... Continue reading

Today is the day I get my first non-Etsy-related check for jewelry. Am I excited? Sure. Am I concerned? Oh you betcha. Consignment is a two-edged sword for any artist (ha, I'm an artist now, am I?!). You get your work out there with no investment in brick and mortar,... Continue reading
