Well, first off, it has been a while. I have been devoting most of my free time lately to rebuilding my Etsy shop. I have had the shop for a couple of years, but I didn’t keep items in it for very long because, well….life got a little too busy, and I didn’t have time to keep up with it.
Just before Christmas, I had a few spare minutes one day, though, so I pulled out a few of my jewelry-making supplies and decided to create a few gifts. I whipped out a little aluminum rose bangle (see below), and I was hooked again. Since then, I have been making jewelry and frames during all my extra time, so I decided to reopen my Etsy shop and see if I can sell a few things online.
I’m going to make an effort to keep up with my blog posts, too, though. This will be a great way to chronicle my creative adventures and to share the stories behind my jewelry and frames with you. Don’t worry, though. I’m not going to turn this completely into craft central. You’ll still get to hear stories of my parenting adventures and my cooking creations. I hope you will forgive me for my long hiatus and that you’ll follow along on the ride that is my life!
P.S. I’d love to see you on Instagram and Twitter @blueirisarts and if you want to check out my Etsy shop, you can find it at BlueIrisArts
