Thanks for sticking with me through my little trip down memory lane vis a vis last summer's vacation. I promise that not all my posts will be quite so mind-numbingly boring, but I needed something to get the blog going again while I continue to play catch up in the background and get things back on track.
Item 1 on that list (well, not really #1 but it is on the list and had a quick turnaround time) was getting my Etsy shops updated. I created a whole bunch of new resin last year, but never did get about half of it uploaded to the shop. Made a start on that last night with a number of new Paris and Eiffel Tower-related designs so if you're into that sort of thing, be sure to check out my Be Resinable shop. More updates to come later today and this week as time allows.
There are actually still some pieces from last year that have been left all lonesome and forlorn on my work station waiting for a second resin pour to finish them off. I had hoped to get to them this weekend since we were having a warm spell (80+ degrees!) which is much better for doing resin than colder temps, but it seems I was overly optimistic about my work schedule returning to normal just yet.
Plus, it was Ryan's birthday party (he turned 10 on Jan. 14th) and the NFL playoffs and car repairs and a doctor's appointment and by the time all THAT was done, I had a choice of what to do with my remaining free time 1. movie & pedicure or 2. resin. I went with #1 and saw "Argo" and then got the pedicure. With 80 degree weather here all week I had to bust out the sandals and flip flops so the feet needed to get a little TLC.
"Argo" was awesome and I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet. I'm still not sure why it got an "R" rating as it wasn't nearly as violent as I had expected. A lot of the "F " word in it, though, so maybe that's why.
More shop updates to come and maybe bead porn by Friday if I get my act together :-)
