Creativity is Flowing...

Well it IS flowing even if things have seemed quiet lately. It is just flowing in a different direction at present. I had a huge job of picking out and scanning over 400 photos and then organizing them into a slideshow for the reunion we organized and I had only about 4 days to complete it. Plus I had to get a speech all ready for before and after the slideshow.

I'm on a roll. I now am working on a 40th anniversary photobook with mounds of pictures to go through. My pictures have been moved all over the place so I'm trying to organize them as I'm putting them away. :oD

I am not sure I will be done as soon as I'd hoped because I have a show coming up next weekend, so I may be stopping the book to prep for the show and then going back to it afterwards. Just go with the flow I guess.

My first week of the trip out to the coast was very busy as you can tell (see first paragraph). Our hotel room was a makeshift office! :o) The second week was just vacation and I did get some rest but it was too short. I WILL get there someday!

I also need to send out vendor invites for our Harvest Hues show (Sept 22) ASAP so need to do that this week as well.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Home Again...

Back home again after 2 weeks at the coast. Our reunion went wonderfully. We had a great turnout and everyone had a really good time. Our video coverage was great. I haven't checked out all the photos yet, but I'm sure they are great as well. My daughter was my photographer and videographer. What a big help! I now will be working on a DVD of the event complete with the slideshow we presented and a slideshow of the photos taken that night. We had some friends provide a bit of musical entertainment that everyone enjoyed, too. All in all, everyone was very pleased.

I'm now getting my bearings back and figuring out what needs to go where in my schedule. I've got a number of shows coming up. So busy day today! Beads of Courage session tonight! (For more info on Beads of Courage, see:

Oh, and another one of my pieces is featured in an Etsy Treasury:

Sizzling Summer Jewellery

I've been super busy last week trying to finish up all the pieces I had started for Bazaart! The reunion I'm planning is coming up soon and I need to work more on that before I leave.

So I did up these pieces and then decided to quit for now. Hoping I'll have time while I'm away to post some to my shop and to catch up on some paperwork!
