New Year, New Life, New Creations


Hello 2014, Think I forgot about you?

Well if you’ve been following along at all by now you should have realized I’m terrible at maintaining my blog,

add in the fact that I had our second baby at the end of January and the months tend to slip by.

But that’s life, and my kids and family are a big source of my joy and desire to create Art.

So how am I managing you might ask? lol Good Question.

Not Bad I guess,

I’m currently working on finding balance in raising two BEAUTIFUL Daughters: Zoë & Prudence

while trying to find time to keep our house from looking like a complete disaster 😉

while also doing my jewelry inventory

All the while trying to keep up with the flow of creative ideas I’ve had lately

Oh and of course trying to squeeze in sleep so I don’t go completely insane Heh!

So all in all not too bad.

I’ve also signed up for the entire season at our local Farmer’s Market so that will be keeping me busy from June until the end of August this year

and of course I’m still peddling my wares over on Etsy so pop on over.

As for me, I have a lot of work to do 🙂 and I will try to keep updating as I go along, but for tonight, back to inventory 🙂

Cheers,

Amanda

 

 

Busy Busy Busy


No I have not dropped off the planet…again.

I was away visiting family and since returning home I have been inundated with prenatal appointments for baby #2.

On top of that I been posting like mad to my Etsy shop uploaded a whole bunch of fun and colorful jewelry.

You should go check it out:

So yes I’ve been working on jewelry, no I haven’t been working on much Art.

That’s primarily because I have 3 Jewelry related events coming up in November that I’m working away at getting inventory stocked up for.

Crazy Month


Miss me?

It’s been a crazy month and it’s only going to get crazier as we head into early September.

I’ve been busy at the local Farmer’s market selling (primarily) my jewelry and smaller artwork, this Thursday will be my 3rd week and then I am taking the next week off as we head to the Rockies

camping for our 9th Anniversary.

Once I get back I have Prenatal appointments, another week at the Market and then Munchkin and I fly to New Brunswick to visit family leaving hubby home to hold down the Fort (no pun intended, seeing how we live in Fort Saskatchewan, AB).

He’s offered to take over my table (sweet brave soul he is xox)  at the Last Market for the Season on Sept 5th so treat him nice and buy lots 😉

While all the chaos has been happening I’ve also been busy rearranging my studio and basement in general,

working on a few new paintings which I hope to complete when I get back in September

and I also signed up for a big Christmas Marketplace Sale happening on November 30th hosted by the local Chamber of Commerce.

So I’ll also be busy prepping handmade jewelry and art for gifts and stocking stuffers for that event.

But in the mean time I hope to have a few weeks of relaxing with family.

As a side note, I have cut a few prices on earrings and what not in my Etsy store so there’s no better time to shop 🙂

It’s very early on in the First Trimester but it is exciting news that had to be shared.

This is where I get to plug my Artwork and say buy, buy, buy cause we will have another baby to feed, feed, feed 😉
