Unsure

I'm still unsure about the new look for my blog. Is it too much pink? Just enough pink? Fine the way it is? Erin, calm down, it's just a blog? Don't worry, I'll leave it for a bit more to decide if I like it.

I've found myself sitting behind my beading table a lot this week churning (well, not churning, but close) out necklaces for an upcoming trunk sale I'm participating in sometime in May. It's with the same group of ladies I sold with last November with the addition of my sister and possibly someone who does facials. It will be a nice, girls night out type of thing. My goal is to use up a lot of beads and findings that are taking up room. I so badly wanted to buy new things for this, but I resisted. I have so many lovelies that there is no need for new. I'll buy new when I'm out of old. I'm actually quiet surprised with what I've come up with so far. I've even started using silver tone items again which is something I left for a bit. If anything, it's a head start for the fall craft shows.

Work has been a bit topsy turvy lately. For a few weeks I was meeting myself going... or is it coming? I'm not sure. Either way, I was meeting myself doing something! The past couple of days, however, have been a bit quiet giving me time to finish up some projects and become slightly obsessed with convincing the powers that be that I need to go to New York in November for the Billboard conference. I think I have a pretty good case built, so just cross your fingers for me. I know I'll learn many great things and anything I learn will only benefit what we do at Walton Arts Center - so cross those fingers... cross 'em hard. You, you over there, I see you not crossing them for me, get 'em crossed... there you go.

Aside from making jewelry and finding business trips I think I should go on, I haven't been doing too much. I've been out of wool for over a week, so no dyeing (but I have some BFL coming in tomorrow so I'll be able to get started on a custom order). I miss dyeing. Do you think the vinegar is addictive? :)

Well, off to find some good music to listen to and perhaps spin or do some window shopping on Etsy.

I work hard for these quiet evenings alone. Actually, I'd rather the sweet boy be here more than 2 nights a week - so I envy your evenings. There. Feel better?
