What's my motivation?

Why is it so cold in April?  I woke up warm and happy under my blanket, only to be attacked by an evil 30 something degree outdoor temperature.  It's just not right.  I dragged myself downstairs for a hot cup of tea and decided to get started with the day.

The last few days I've been office worked to death.  There's been taxes, a ton of other business paperwork and reworking the website.  I do the site myself and usually want to pull my hair out before it's done, but this time I'm really happy with how it turned out.  If you've not been there, or if it was blue the last time you were, check out the new version at  Now that the short term paperwork and back end things are sorted, I'm ready to get back into making stuff.

In February I created a Celtic Knot bracelet design to match my Celtic Knot Earrings, and the new design has been popular at shows.  I like to mix up my display, so I try not to go crazy with all jewelry all the time.  My next project will be more bottle art.  Currently I only have two decorated wine bottles.  They have a very gypsy feel (to me anyway), and you can use them with the bottle they were made on or take them off to put on another.  They're very versatile, very unique, and make great conversation pieces.  Once I get a half dozen of them together I'll do photos and put them in the shop.

Plans for the rest of the day now...  Finish my tea, grab that blanket, and sit on the couch working on bottle art while binge watching Are You Being Served.  Yay for Britcoms!
