Where have I been for the past six months? Right here, on Clover Blossom Farm, but BUSY! Gardening, pet care, and jewelry-making took up most of my time during summer vacation from my school kitchen job. Some physical issues kept me just relaxing some days (oh darn, huh?) Then, there was the party:
Yes, my son and his lady are having a baby boy! He's due in November, and we had a lovely baby shower party here on the farm last month. Of course that takes lots of planning and preparation, and we crafty-types can't just buy decorations and such, oh no. We have to make them all, and are simple things good enough? ::shaking head no:: Suffice it to say, I spent a lot of time ... and had a lot of FUN ... getting ready for the party which was a huge success! Now to wait for that little grandson to arrive .... <3
I spent some very nice early mornings in my workroom with jewelry supplies, cats, and coffee ...
... and came up with some summery necklaces that were fun to create!Now, it's onward to an autumn line, and then winter/holiday jewelry, which is my favorite to make!
Before that, though, I've joined another challenge blog hop which will take place on September 25. Sponsored by BSueBoutiques.com, the theme is Vintage Flair and the goal is to use one of a few selected brass pieces and create something unique and different, keeping in mind a vintage look and today's fashion trends. Whew, that's a tall order, but I think I'm up to it. In the meanwhile, stay tuned for more posts here, and more jewelry creations on my facebook page at www.facebook.com/NovegattiDesigns. ;)
