Keep on truckin'

Today I cleaned out my Extra shop and used every last piece to make some quick necklaces. A simple copper ball chain antiqued in liver of sulfer, a large jump ring with a little bead for added color and shazam! Instant awesome necklaces! And instant inventory for my show this weekend! High-fives all the way around!

Gotta get back to work. Tonight's goal: finish up the bracelets I started the other day. Do you have night-working goals? Or are you like a normal person and stop working once 5:00 hits?

Those are freaky cool for last minute throw-togethers. Sweet!

As far as quitting at 5, you got jokes. I can't remember the last time that happened, but a 16 hour day in the studio still beats sitting behind a desk for 8.

Wishin' you a stellar show!

Hi five!

I'm one of those folks who's behind a desk facing a computer full of email taskings all day long. I can't complain too much because it's a fun challenge sometimes, but sometimes I wish I could just get lost in a creative fog (with quick breaks to run for more supplies)....haaaaaaaaa

Hope you have a great show!!

happy to say i've never been refered to as a normal person..
that being the case..a 5pm stopping time is not part of my schedule.

Love the quick necklaces. What a good solution.
I'm just hitting my stride at about 3:00 and then I burn the candle 'till late at night. One good thing about having to clock-in at work any more: I can keep the hours that are the best fit for me. :)

I worked until 11pm last night. For The Man. Not for myself :(

The necklaces ROCK! Good luck at the show!

I am a night working person as well. I work on stuff all day and night long. I'm especially creative at night :D

welp, you eliminated me at the 'like a normal person' part...
i work whenever - it could be in the middle of anything just about... if i get an idea, and feel solid about it, i seem to need to take action... because lately my brain has been too fuzzy...
good luck with the bracelets... love the necklaces... i am sure the show will be a success... at least you will have the good stuff, let's hope the buyers bring the desire to shop...

I'm glad that you started putting a hole IN the birds themselves. I ordered an earlier one and the bale that was attached has already come loose and I almost lost the bird!! Nice upgrade to a great item!!!!
