working in studio

So yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I have not bloged in forever and a day.
I have however been working in my studio. A great thing. I have made one starfish pendant, and a ring and a half (soon to be two rings.) So this along with working 40 hours has left me with very little time to blog lately.
Going though my studio I found hidden treasures. Large pieces of jet, amber, turquoise, and stones from Rhode Island. Great treasures were found. I of course had to immediately use some of them. I laid them out and decided to carve a jet and turquoise sea urchin. I am planning on making them into rings. I also thought I would make a small series of sea urchins to help me get back in to the groove.

I did not have a studio for almost two years and I forgot how much I love to carve stone. It's just amazing. If there is one thing that relaxes me it's carving stone. I do make quite the mess when carving but there is nothing better.

I will post pictures as soon as I have some completed pieces. This is one of me and the large piece of turquoise that I forgot about.

clean house, clean mind

So we have been living in our house for about six months now. We seem to still be unpacking. Today we tackled some of the mess. One being my closet which seemed to be the dumping grounds for all the clothes we had packed (most being mine of course). I guess it has been really bothering me but, I had no energy to tackle it. Today I decided to dive in head first! I feel so much better about it all.
I just need to do the same thing in my studio. We use the studio closet to store Christmas stuff and the thousands of dishes I have from the wedding. I think I need to get in there next and really organize it to a "T". Tomorrow I'm going to pull everything out and reorganize it so that it all fits and is easy to get to. Once my house is all put together I think I will have time to work in my studio and guilt free at that.
clean house!
Picture of my closet, hooray for cleaning.

WEEKS! ahh! ... and finally today we are getting them.... hours late! what is it with this! I'm getting so aggravated! By the way this is a picture of the table and the kitchen I wish I had.

Very tired

Had to work a 10 1/2 hour day today (5 am- 3:30 pm). Unfortunately that makes me very tired. I'm not sure I have the energy for the studio tonight. I have tomorrow off, with a million things to do. I just hope to get in my studio a little tomorrow.
