I'll see your OCD and raise you a healthy dose of ADD

I have a big show coming up this weekend and instead of assembling the pieces I already have made I have been working like a freak in the studio trying to replenish the pieces that haven't even sold yet. Does that make any sense? I feel like I've been given an injection of insanity. I can't seem to slow down and stop making earrings. It's like I lived through the Great Earring Depression and now I am hoarding every pair I make. I'm obsessed with textures and will make dozens of variations on the same theme. In the past few days I have made over 100 pairs (I stopped counting when the voice in my head started to chant "OCD much?")! I may look calm (and slightly smug) in the photo above but if you look really close you will see the crazy peeking through.

I'm off to the studio again today, this time to glaze. If any of you ordered from me this past week I am going to be shipping tomorrow. So sorry for the delay! Please bear with me as I navigate the rough waters of overachieving. :)

Well do I understand earring mania--sometimes I go through the same thing, making hundreds of pairs and then thinking, I don't even have room to display them all, ha!

Good luck with your show!

Nothing motivates like a deadline, at least for me. Be sure to take some time for yourself, enjoy. Carpe Diem!

I think it's a good thing to seize these slightly manic moments to get as much done as possible! The earrings are looking great. All the best for the upcoming show! :)

You do such lovely work that I'm sure you won't be overstocked, maybe a little crazy but not overstocked! LOL

You are too funny! :) I wish I had half the 'crazy' you do! You get so much done, it's unreal. Good Luck at your show! :)
