If I Could Save Time In A Bottle...

The first thing that I'd like to do, is to spend, every day, 'til eternity passes away, and I'd spend them with beads!!!!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Yeah, that's right, I've been listenning to good 'ole Jim Croce while I've been working on filling the order, getting her little highness back into the groove of schooldom, preparing new routines for my girls at the gym next week, and creating the course for the five-week beadwork program I'll be teaching at the college this winter semester. I had a moment of "Can I really do it?" last night, wondering if I really had it in me, the ability to juggle so many aspects of my life, of which I'm not willing to let go of any of them. I feel greedy. Is it wrong to want it all? I suppose I'll soon find out...

I'm exausted, I feel like I'm burning the candle at both ends, but I'm NOT complaining! I will NOT complain, and SHOULD NOT complain. My dream is coming true, and I simply can't let myself down. I can't wait for "The Art of Creating Beaded Beads" to come out in October. They're supposed to send me a free copy of my very own, seeing as one of my beaded beads has made it into the gallery. I can't wait to see it there in full print. My first 'published' piece...

K. enough. I should get back to finishing my 4th to last bag. (Only 3 more to knit after this one, and then the embellishing fun begins!) I'll make sure to post shots of everything when they're all done.

I'm sorry about any emails that have gone unanswered, or if I haven't been around for a while, the juggling system is still new to me. But give me a few weeks, and I'll be back in the swing of things!

Peace.

Jewels...I don't wonder you're exhausted. Don't feel like you're being ungrateful to admit it. Stress, even the good kind, is stress.

Just breath now and then. And remember to stretch every once in a while so you don't go into perma-hunch!

I'm buying the book, too!

Take care of yourself, ok???
