Bad Blogger (BTW)

There should be a big, fat F written in red ink across the front of this blog! I've absolutely failed at blogging over the past week. Yes, I was at the convention all of last week and yes, I've been struggling with a bout of vertigo this week. But, are those ANY excuses for my lack of posting? I don't know that they are.

In addition, I haven't made hardly any jewelry in WEEKS! In fact, the only wearable art that's come out of my hands (and onto my wrists) are a few friendship bracelets.

Why am I stressing over these things? Well, I found out this week that I was ranked at #22 in the Jewelry Making blogs category on Wikio!!! I'm not completely sure how I got that great of a ranking on the first time, but I figure I might have just slipped in there under the radar since previously I had been only listed in the Craft category. Ah well, my lack of blogging and lack of blogging about jewelry will not help things in any way. So, here I am a little dizzy and with a lack of complete focus trying to stay on top of things.

My hands are itching to have some wire and beads in them to twist and secure, but my eyes and head are swimming too much to focus on small details. It's a crying shame. However, I am feeling better today than I have the past couple of days, so hopefully I'm on the mend.

Since it's Bead Table Wednesday, let me share what's on and surrounding mine.
Oh yes. . .that is my muffin tin covered in foil for easy transportability. It's filled not only with my muffin tin projects, but all other completed projects that I've decided to list in my Etsy Shop. These items simply need descriptions. Seriously. I'm trying to catch up, really. If I could just hold my head up.

You may recognize my travel box from a few weeks ago. I did unpack it after vacation, but then packed it again for this trip. Now, it sits and waits for unpacking once again.

Don't forget to visit the Bead Table Wednesday Flickr Group and see what's on everyone else's tables.
Bead Table Wednesday

While I do want to bust into those beads and boxes and finished projects, I still am trying to get the house in order today; clean toilets, unpack suitcases, laundry, etc. before I can venture any farther into my creative space. Bummer. But, if I don't set limits on myself, I might not get ANYTHING accomplished EVER.

Hopefully, I can check back in with y'all tomorrow!


  1. Congratulations on your ranking! I hope you get feeling better soon and can get to the fun stuff after the toilets! Ha! Isn't it awful that all those "have to's" get in the way of the "want to's"?

  2. Hi Hope, it will all work out and you will be neck deep in the beads again.

  3. Therese. . .Oh I do hope you're right!

  4. Laura, Sorry. Somehow I missed your comment the first time around. Oh yes. The 'have tos' will kill you sometimes.

  5. The beads will be there when you are ready! Enjoy summer, it goes by so quickly. Love the muffin tin - yeah!!!

  6. Congratulations on your ranking! I'm sure you'll get back in the groove. Hope your vertigo clears up soon.

  7. it's funny how learning your ranking can change things. mine's turned on my type-a competitive side. i'm working on that. :)

  8. Congrats on the ranking!

    I just teached some of my babysitter kids how to make friendship bracelets like that... gosh, they're awesome, Hope! :)

I awoke the other day with many thoughts about the 100 Day project and decided to jot them down here to share with you. Some of the bits I g...
