Why oh why?

I know we all have these crazy day jobs and even crazier real lives....I know I do.  I have a husband in chronic pain-bad health....a job...where I am on the road more hours of the day then not, an online business: and three Grandsons (one in utero) and two who are incredibly bright preschoolers.  I am also a daughter of an 82 year old Mom (who is always on the go and I have an account with the FBI to constantly monitor her whereabouts) and 6 siblings....a bizillion nieces  nephews, great nieces and great nephews and friends with children that make more surrogate nieces, nephews and grandchildren to track!!!!!

I am working hard on all fronts and can't remember passwords and have to keep a list of what I should be doing when.  But what should I be doing....making the best jewelry ever and I am.....

In honor of the little girls in my life I have been creating the prettiest, brightest, candy-licious memory wire bracelets.  They are bright and fun and irresistible  .  In honor of the Mom's in my life I have been creating wonderful bracelets, eco-friendly, re-purposed necklaces.  For that is fun for gardeners to wear after they get done weeding, composting, mulching, planting and watering.  For wine lovers for wine lovers. You have too look at my site to see:

For the love of sun and spring, I have been planting my myriad planters, pots and troughs with vegetables and flowers, perennials and annual seeds.  My garden has pots bursting with seedlings of sweet peas, carrots, green onions and lettuce, collard greens, strawberries, garlic, mizuna, pak coy, and kale.  In my small green house I have tomatoes and summer squash and an acorn squash.  I am looking forward to planting my fave's (green beans), egg plant, cucumbers, hot peppers and corn.

I find that as my tastes are evolving (have you noticed I started with gemstones and glass?) and are now looking at found items and paper.  I have created a quart jar full of paper beads....rolled....glued and glazed. I have also looked at different textures of cardboard and pressed paper items from the scrapbook section of my local craft store.  I am having fun with polymer clays.

Life is varied.....and it is fun....and as long as the sun is shining there is something to grow....plants, jewelry,!
