If I have to hear “2020 didn’t go according to plan” I think I might scream. May I just say…”No shit, Sherlock!”
Of course, with a business to run things rarely go “to plan.” Designs don’t want to cooperate, castings go ka-flewy, stones break. Throw 2 kids and virtual school in the mix, and holy crap. At this point I count the day a success if ¼ of the work on my to-do list gets done, school work is reasonably close done and everyone gets fed. Happen to get a bonus thing done like fold the laundry and woo-hoo I’m a rock star!!
I know I’m not the only one.
I noticed after a while I kept buying myself flowers and putting on earrings even if I wasn’t planning on leaving the house. When I thought about it I realized this was my self-care. I know, another trendy concept right now, but one I fully embrace. These 2 little things that I do for myself make me smile and that can help a lot.
Something like these rose-cut ruby earrings from my Open Hourglass Collection. I love the way these earrings move and sway. The movement reminds me they are there and it gives me a little boost and of course I had to take a picture of them with a lovely little lisianthus stem.
Talk to you soon,
P.S. While you’re in my on-line shop, make sure you sign up for my email list and I’ll let you know when new work is available. Which will be soon since I do like to start the new year with new designs!
