You've probably wondering where I've been. Well, this house definitely is keeping me hopping. Even though everything is pretty much put away, I keep moving things around, organizing closets, getting used to all the new heating, appliances, etc. All that fun that comes with a new home!!! Don't get me wrong, I love it though! I finally have a place for all my stuff!
I did post a new bracelet in the Shop. It's in the "Out of Africa" collection and called "Sena Bangili" which means beautiful bracelet in Swahili! I love this one so much, I am going to make one for me! It's made with lampwork from Corina Tettinger in her famous "Groundhog" pattern. I LOVE these beads!Also, I am getting ready to hit the road again! This time to Nantucket. We usually go every year after the tourists have all gone home. The island is nice and quiet, the weather is cooler, and you don't really have to deal with crowds. For a small place, it can get pretty crowded, let me tell you! We are staying at the same hotel we always do, except this stay is FREE. Last year, the staff at the hotel was so inept. They had us waiting about 5 hours+ for our room, way past the check in time. I was cranky, Mark was cranky and we wasted an afternoon sitting in the "library". Then, to make matters worse, the stay was dreadful. It was one of those "if it could go wrong, it did" stays. I was never so happy to get on the ferry and get to the mainland! The manager offered us two nights free this year to make up for it. I wonder what kind of room we will have. Two cots in a broom closet next to the kitchen??? :) I'll let you know!
So I will have "spotty" email access at best for the next few days so it may take me a bit longer to get back to you! Orders placed in the shop will go out on Wednesday September 25th. I'll be sure to get lots of pictures while I'm away and expect a really good blog post when I return as well as new jewelry!
