My week has been spent cleaning house, making jewelry, shipping orders, shopping for groceries, cooking and taking the kids for doctors appointments. I'm very glad of the weekend. All my Etsy orders are ready to be shipped on Monday morning so the weekend is free so far. My studio is in desperate need of a good cleaning and I can't put it off any longer. There's no clear space on top of my workbench at all. The floor is littered with pieces of wire and stray beads and there are empty coffee cups everywhere. Yikes! I guess my weekend is not so free after all.

Sometimes I wonder what am I doing making jewelry when I am an artist. Some people say that making jewelry is a form of art, and maybe it is. Lately I've been wondering if I'm going in the wrong direction and that I should be painting instead of doing what I'm doing. I do love making jewelry and everything that goes along with it, and it's nice when people buy it. I think I have to somehow find a happy medium, but I find it hard to go from jewelry making mode to painting mode. Either I do one or the other. It's a constant internal struggle for me....

Earrings with black cubes and pearls
My household is still a very sick household; the flu doesn't seem to want to let go its grip. I have been making and listing jewelry in my Etsy shop though, which is good. I have some new pieces to photograph and list tomorrow...
