Get up early, go to work....stay late at work, go home and be stuck in traffic on the way home.... study, go to sleep. Get up early, go to work...stay later than yesterday, go home...but be stuck in traffic for a while, study...go to sleep. Get up early, go to work........... you get the picture.
But at least while I am at work I get to wear and be complemented on my new earrings collection

The little things make me happy...
like having my brother and my sister with me for the first time since Thanksgiving.
or trying to boil eggs to colour them and ending up with half of them cracking ;)

I spent the weekend in bed sick for most part, but hopefully this week won't be too hard on me.

I have updated the shop The Shop! with new earrings and this Pendant

Happy Sunday!

a small update...

Nothing new to report really.
Just working like mad, studying like mad and trying to spend a few minutes on something creative or to go the gym.
I find that earrings are an easy way to do something different, ie not work with numbers. I have been putting them in the Shop

I hope to have some time to print in the upcoming future, but it probably won't be until after my test on April 5th.

My brother joined me at the Bead Oasis show downtown yesterday and that was interesting. I found that a lot of the supplies I can get online and mainly on Etsy are a lot cheaper than from the vendors there. I did spend a bit too much on lovely handmade glass beads that are just incredibly beautiful.

So instead of studying I have been playing with beads and metal.
I have a new addiction!
I listed this pair of earrings and already sold a pair the same day.
You can visit the new pair here: Assymetrical Earrings
I am trying to focus on studying but my brain is very very tired and unwilling to cooperate with me....

not a very good week...

I am really happy that this week is over.
I have been sick with a head cold since Monday. I managed to work from home almost the whole week.
Tiger was sick too. I took him to the vet and he got shots and now he doesn't like me very much. He had an upset tummy on Monday and a bit of a scratch under his chin. He is just sleeping and giving me unhappy looks.
I have to say Vets are very very expensive ;(

The picture to the side is of one of my prints framed. In my opinion a frame makes the pieces incredible!
Ok back to trying to relax and get better.
