Thankfully the past couple days I've gotten to bed early enough to stay up when I get Gracie off to school. That has given me more time than normal to work on my jewelry. What I can get done in one uninterrupted hour in the morning is amazing. Just this morning I made four new steampunk pieces. And I got them and the four I made yesterday and the custom piece sealed.
Over the holiday I decided that one of the things I need most now is more time for me. I will always be a mom to my girls and a wife to my husband, but I also need to be me. I need to make me as happy as I try to make them. It kinda reminds me of a quote, "If momma's not happy, no one is happy." So I'm doing more and more for me all the time.
So these mornings have been a blessing. Fire up the Keurig, sit down with my box of pieces and let the inspiration flow.
Here are some pictures of the pieces I just finished. They aren't done drying and aren't listed yet...but I think they turned out well :)
