What I'd Rather Be Doing

I have a freelance job. It's usually not terribly time consuming but lately? Oh, brother. I've been working all the time. I do research for a publishing company in DC so I can work in my pjs or schedule things to suit me most of the time. Lately I've had more work and have been working daily (oh, no!!) -- and long days at that. And my beading time is gone! GONE! I have no energy left at the end of the day but I will soon. I hope!

Here's some things I've done but all pre-blog:

Some cubes from a Jean Power tutorial.



And lots of peyote stitch bracelets. Here's a sample of ones I did w/ cube beads:







I have a stack of things I want to do. But earning some money has to be number 1 for now! Thanks for sticking around!

Sally, I love the red and black bracelet how the colors just fade into each other, beautiful! I truly hope that you get to play again soon, but I do understand having to pay the bills.

Sally, your bracelets are lovely and I agree with Therese, the black and red one really is a show stopper. I can imagine how much you must miss being able to sit down and dabble in wonderful beads but we all understand that, for most of us anyway, beading doesn't pay the bills. :(

Hope you get some time soon to enjoy the passion of beading again.
ps ... I love the site that you found for Mandy ... that bangle bracelet is gorgeous and I can't wait to try making one. Thanks for discovering it. :)

I liked your post because I feel the same about work getting in the way :-)
I love the red and black two tone bracelet best but they are all stunning!

Time is probably one of the most valuable commodity! Still, I think when you do find time for beading, you will appreciate it even more! Thanks for reading my blog - I treasure the fact you do make time for it! Pearl
