Still no photos

Sadly, 2 months later, I still don't have a new window in my dining room where I take my photos.  One was ordered, but evidently the contractor didn't measure correctly, so they had to order a second one, which should be ready in a couple of weeks.  In the meantime, I HAVE to find somewhere else to take my pictures today.  I currently have 3 pairs of earrings, 5 bracelets, and a necklace waiting to be photographed.

I did get a picture of this, though:

I've been holding off on working on Christmas ornaments because it's really hot, which makes it hard to work with my clay, and also because they are time-consuming, which makes them very daunting to me right now.  I am planning on making a mold of the bodies for the snowmen AND the penguins so that I can cut down on at least a little bit of the time to make these.  Hopefully my master plan will work, lol!

still no new pictures

...because I still don't have my new windows in yet.  Hopefully it will be this next week, though!  It's awfully dark in our house with 4 of our south-facing windows covered in plywood.  :-(

Is it hot where you live?  It's pretty warm here.  I think the high will be near 100 today, which is cooler than the past few days, although it's pretty humid.  Being from Southern Arizona, I'm pretty accustomed to the heat, but people aren't lying when they say, "but it's a DRY heat!"  It definitely feels a lot worse when it's 100* and humid, vs. 105* and dry... I swear it!

So, I was thinking about a sale... if you enter SUMMER at checkout, you'll get 25% off anything that is ready to ship.  Yes, this means you won't get a discount on an ornament...

What?!?  ORNAMENTS?  Yep.  Click the picture to head over to Etsy and see!

We were on vacation last week, and of course I had to hit up a couple of my favorite Tucson bead shops... Unfortunately, my usual photo window is currently covered by a huge piece of plywood while we wait for our new windows (hopefully in the next few days), so I can't get any photos of my beads.  In the meantime, however, I just wanted to let you all know that yes, I'm still here, and today I'm planning on starting a prototype for a new style of Christmas ornaments!!  I'll still have the snowmen, but the polar bears were just too much for me, so I'm going to try something else new for this year!  I can't wait to show you all!!!!  :-)
