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 love to cook hate to clean up afterwards umm yeah I am a messy cook but since I do the clean up I think its okay to be messy sane logic huh? Anyhow I love this recipe I have for homemade "Tomato Basil Soup" sometimes it a craving thing. Heres my recipe: Big Fat can of Tomato with Basil and organeo I thinks I use Hunts or Delmonte, fresh is better always use fresh in summer okay about a dozen of leaves of Fresh Basil (throw them in the blender, I do it this way then scrape them into sauce) Big container of Tomato Juice really big container. Throw all this into a processor and mix it together, then put it into a sauce pot, with a stick of real butter Yeah Paula Deen and a container of heavy cream yeah not a diet food here. simmer to whenever you can't wait any longer and eat it all up its great. Oh I also put some fresh grated from Sargentos artsian blend cheese. Great stuff.

Oh what a nice productive day I had today. I finally got some new earrings in the shop this weekend, hurrah! Just added this pair to the shop

Finally finished up a pair of new earrings for the etsy shop. Lately it seems to be so hard to ever get some bench time in the studio. I have been super busy studying at college which by the way I hate but have gotten over that little issue, I decided I really do need to go so chin up and get over yourself. Life is great lately except for a few health issues which will clear up or at settle down soon I hope. I am now determined to juggle everything which includes posting on this blog which I truly love to do. It's so much fun bringing you along with me on my adventures, life is never boring for me always something exciting going on. Well a couple of months back I talked about this book "The Artist Way" by Julia Cameron if you don't have got to get it, its so inspirational for me and the theory does really work odd don't know how but it does. Now every morning you must these three dump pages actually I love them lets me get my day going without any emotional garbage hanging around. I have never experenced a artist block but I do know people who have this book is all into that and other stuff, I have way to many design ideas enough for at least two maybe three silversmiths. Frank and I did a little rearrainging in the studio last weekend hopefully we can do a little bit more this weekend I now have these fantastic shelves that I can put stuff on its wonderful. I have been working with some designs in earrings for a while now so this is the first of the group.
