Now it's time to make some goodies to stock it up with!

Just thinking...

... about many, many things.  Quite a busy time for my busy mind and I should be keeping that busy-ness productive.  What's on my mind?  Art, business, family, friends and the weather.

Hammering Along

Today, I hammered my finger on my new anvil.  Ouch.  The first official week of Hsu-Lee Designs, I sprained my ankle.

No worries.  This isn't a sign.  It's just because I'm ridiculously clumsy.  The boy and I have been talking about getting a Vespa to scoot around the city on.  But he's adamant about me not riding on one by myself. That's going to be another future discussion.

Today has been good, though!  Got a nice, hot pickle going and did some post-firing cleaning.  Getting ready for a little rough-and-tumble tonight, once I get enough pieces to load the tumbler.  Lots of stuff coming along and being productive makes me happy and happy!

Going in Circles

This is my third official week as a full-time artist/jeweler.  It's not quite gone as I'd imagined it, but then again, I wasn't quite sure what to expect in the first place anyway.

I think, it doesn't feel like it has gone off with a huge *bang* and I need to be okay with that.  I've been pretty busy- developing a line for a gallery that I am hoping to sell at, here in San Francisco.  I've been dealing with some doubt and concerns, second-guessing my ideas and work.  That's something I need to address as I continue down this path of the arts.

So, while my mind is going in circles around some various issues, my hands are still keeping busy and I'm putting some of that mind-energy into good use.  I'm hoping to wrap up my sample collection by the end of this week and then get an appointment with the buyer at said gallery.  Keep your fingers crossed- mine are too busy, making pieces right now!
