WOW, New Year's has come and gone and now it's March. I can not believe how fast time is passing. What can I say....I don't really have an excuse for not writing sooner...I'm just a slacker! I have been off in my own little world of creating and playing around with metal, wire, and beads! :) LOL Sometimes it feels like the days blend together! I feel blessed to be able to spend my time creating something I love! However, I also feel a tinge of guilt for being so selfish with my time and being such a procrastinator when it comes to other things. Anyway!

Have I confessed my distaste for computers and technology lately? No??? Well, I hate computers...this one especially! It is a lemon! I've nothing but problems with it since I bought it. I tell it I'm going to throw it out the front door if it don't play nice, but then it just acts worse! :) LOL

I haven't been using the computer just results in more frustration than success! :) I guess I really should contact tech support, but the last few times I did that, I knew more about it than they did...which isn't saying much! It's about like the saying..."the blind, leading the blind." :) I guess it's time to do something though! I think I'm going to buy a Mac.

So, I bet you all thought I had dropped off the face of the earth? Now you know why I haven't been online! I am sooo sorry for being out of contact for so long. I just haven't been able to make myself use this computer!

So, last time I posted was October! Wow....a lot has happened since then...

My uncle passed away November 2, 2008. So, the holidays and past few months were a little difficult for my family, especially my aunt and cousins. We have had a lot of deaths in our family over the past few years...I family is getting smaller and smaller. I'm an only child, but my mom has 3 sisters...and I have cousins. We are all really close...I don't know what I would do without them!

We spent New Year's at the beach (Caswell Beach, NC). It was a gorgeous week! It was loud and chaotic...just as it always is! :) I met with Linda at the artSHAK Gallery while I was down there. She loved my jewelry, and asked if I would like to show some of it in the gallery. It's doing great...over half of the pieces I left have sold! I have my second order going to the gallery tomorrow. So, it was a great trip!!!! The artSHAK Gallery is located in Southport, NC, which the way, my favorite place...where I hope to one day live!!! Have I mentioned I love Southport? :) LOL The gallery on Howe Street near Dosher Hospital. I love the gallery!!! So, you can imagine how excited I was for the opportunity!!!

March 1st, it snowed! It was the most snow we have had in years. We have had crazy weather...but I guess that's normal for the Carolinas! So, last Monday, the high was 35 and there was snow on the ground, and this past Monday, it was 83 and sunny. What is it the say about March??? In like a lion, out like a lamb!

Anyway, that's all for now! :) I have been working on a LOT of new pieces...can't wait for you to see them! :)
