Thank Goodness it's the end of the Week

Life is just ticking right along on its way with me just keeping up with it at every turn. Finally got a new wheel for my cabbing machine, sold some cabs a little bit of jewelry and one of my fantastic vintage hats not to mention some of my vintage fabric so life is going on pretty good. With all the time I spend studying I really miss my studio time. I have to fit it in here and there so when I get a good block of time I really go for it. I am still in my Turquoise Mode which is what I call it. I love turquoise all turquoise beautiful turquoise. So I pulled out some stuff that was in my UFO box and got to work and here are a few of the results.
I like the simple clean lines of these pieces, I wanted to showcase the stones. I think sometimes as artist we want lots of stuff on one the piece and it takes away from the stone, these cabs are my own that I have cabbed and I wanted them to pop out at folks because they are beautiful. I love them so much I almost didn't part with them but You know a girl has to eat although not doing much of that lately either. School is finishing up thankfully. I hate school but it is a means to an end that is all I don't have to like it just learn there. I need to be able to stand on my own, thats it in a nutshell. Who knows if I will ever use this degree , who cares I just need to have it to assert my independence as a woman an artist. It was on my list and I am checking it off. Won't be taking classes this summer due to a little health issue I have to deal with so at least I am getting a break.Have a great weekend . Oh I have a new Ditty in my life I now live by this rule.It's called the Rosa Effect, very simply it means no matter how irritated or aggravating life becomes you step back and follow the ROSA RULE: 1) Restructure whatever is making you crazy 2) Organize which is the at the core of everything if you want peace in your life. 3) Structure yeah you need some structure some foundation on which it build a peaceful life. 4) Act on it, yes that means put the above steps in order and get on with your life.

Hello. Your turquoise cabs are gorgeous as are the pieces you have made with them. Congrats to you with almost being done with school. Right now you may hate it, but in the long run, you will probably feel very good about your accomplishment.
