Sleep deprivation, pink, and other stories

You join me on a sorely sleep-deprived sunday. The older I get, the more ill-equipped I am to cope without a good 7+ hours, so this post is unlikely to be as sparklingly conversational as I hoped. One good thing about this lack of sleep is that it leaves me unable to do more than sit in a chair with some kind of brain funk. Anything more creative or requiring fully firing synapses isn’t going to happen. Okay, that’s not really a good thing, but it does mean that I’ve done a long, looooooong day of listing stuff. Hoooooooo! So now there’s a stack of new jewellery in the shop! Including a surprisingly large number of pinkish things. I know pink is widely frowned upon, but in the right quantity and the right shade, well, I’m fine with it.

I’ve also been drawn back to a palette I used to obsess over.

The next job will be getting the last lot of silver pieces in the shop asap. They are currently at the assay office. Once that’s done, I plan to start winding down for Christmas. I’ve decided that I’m not going to drive myself up the wall trying to do a bead shop update before xmas, but I have already started on a fresh pile of beads and plan to keep up the relaxing clay-times over the hols. So, there should be a pretty mammoth shop update in the new year.

I’ll be back as soon as possible with the new silver things. (Can you tell I’m anxious to get on with having a break?) Ciao for now!
