Where did the time go?! June is almost over. I can't believe it. This whole summer has felt off for me. It was cold for a long while into spring with a few days of scorching heat sprinkled in. Its been a weird season. At least, I think so.
Last time I wrote I was shopping for a dress, and making a dog charm. Well, I'm still working on that dog charm. Its been on the back burner, but I've started working again. Painting is going slowly, but its not a race.
My future brother in laws wedding happened a few weeks ago now. It was pretty, and classy, and a lot of fun. Its always nice seeing the family. I ended up with a saucy red dress, and a pair of high heels that gave me the worst toe cramps in my life. I think I might have to burn them. Whoever thought that high heels were a good idea should be beaten. Or forced to wear them. Something. It was terrible. Plus, I ended up not wearing them at one point, but I wish I would have had some flats or something. Especially since a lot of rose petals ended up on the dance floor, and my feet turned purple! :) I think they were purple for a couple days. It was a lot of fun though.
I've been working at my new job for a few weeks now. Its really interesting, and my bosses and coworkers are really nice. I'm feeling pretty lucky about that. There is a lot to learn, and I'm hoping to absorb it all like a big ol' brain sponge. Its going to take some hard work to get into the swing and balance work and the shop. I just need to organize and focus. Its been a struggle, but I'm not giving up or anything. I'm just going to take it one day at a time.
My garden is starting to grow pretty good. Little flowers are poking their heads up and blooming. So far I have only seen the pansies. :) Yesterday I found a little millipede, a fuzzy white caterpillar, and a green bug I've never seen before. I researched it, and it looks like it was a green tree cricket. Like a baby one though.
I recently finished a personal pendant. It was my first time working with silver metal clay, and it turned out great. I'm really pleased with it. :)
I've been working on a new idea for the shop. Something from a long while ago, something that only a vague memory of remains. Little bits suddenly came back to me though, and now it needs to be revisited. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised when it finally comes together.
With all of these interesting things going on, I would love to toss in some pictures for you to see what I see, but that brings me to my final issue. My camera is old. Well, by electronic standards, its a dinosaur. It sucks too, because I love this camera. Its been a great little companion and has captured so many memories for me. Its coming to be time to replace my little buddy though. The batteries no longer hold a charge, and its not worth investing in new ones. So, I've been researching, and I think I have found a worthy replacement for my old Canon PowerShot S410 with its tiny 4 megapixels. Hopefully if things go well, I will have my new baby soon.
*fingers crossed* :)
