Rainy Sunday


It's been very warm here in Cenral Louisiana, and rainy. I'm enjoying the mild temperatures, and I like the sound of the rain on the roof.

This week the hot water heater decided to act up. Home ownership means never lacking a to-do list, right?

Fortunately, it was a simple plumbing pipe fix, and we were back in hot water, in a good way.

I'm relocating some of the jewelry assembly tools to the office in the house, instead of the studio.

I'm thinking that I'm more likely after a week at the regular 9-to-5 to sit in my fuzzy slippers and comfy clothes here at home and make a few pairs of earrings, a bracelet or a necklace, than I seem to be willing to get in the car and go to the studio to do it.
It's an experiment, like relocating the photography setup.

So I put some beads, jewelry pliers and a bench block in a box, and today I'm going to set up a jewelry assembly area here at the house. I gathered up a whole bunch of pewter components I've been wanting to play with, too.

There are still lots of messy, noisy, wet and dusty things that need to stay at the studio.
I don't want all that in my living area.
But hey, how much trouble can I make with some jewelry tools and beads?

Fortunately, my hubby is okay with the idea. He says he likes having me around.
Can you imagine that?

I'll give this a try, and see how it goes. I have a lot of ideas for necklaces, like the one in the photo, that I've been wanting to assemble. Now I can do it in the comfort of my own home!
Sounds silly, but I'm actually excited.

Not silly at all. There is something wonderful about being able to work with your hands in your slippers and comfy clothes (jammies).

I am sure that you will love working at home in comfy clothes and in bits and pieces of time as you find it. Studios are great but not after a long 9-5. Always love your work.

At some point, my laziness will tell against me. But right now it's SO COLD and DARK - I just want to nest at home. So in a way, I'm taking away my own excuses.
