Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Whatever Floats Your Boat

I'm in full Christmas hermit mode, not a grinch, I hope the holiday is everything people want, but for me I'll just hold tight till it's all over.
For some of us this isn't the happiest of seasons and can actually be pretty rough but I think the best thing we can do is fly under the radar so we don't spread the sadness. So I'm kind of avoiding the social media and all Christmas shows :) 
So...if you love the season I hope you enjoy every minute of it and if you're like me....hang in there, normal programming will resume shortly.

Struggling with work right now....I seem to be in permanent slow motion...a Baywatch beader.
I hope to finish writing the words and checking through the Filigree Corrugations bracelet today and hopefully list it tomorrow. 
The necklace should be a LOT quicker as I can use a lot of the illustrations from the bracelet.  I do plan on attaching a discount code for the necklace tutorial if you buy the bracelet tutorial and vice-versa.

I've been thinking a LOT about art lately, having the urge to paint or sculpt again.....just not the room or time to do!  Being an artist sure does take up a lot of space.  And I dream of both a wet studio and a dry one.
I am trying to form a plan for the new year, to get the heck out of dodge and find my life again.  I'm gathering projects that I think would be good workshops and hope to put a brochure together so I can set up some classes in California beginning in April....hopefully I'll be living there by then and if not, well, it will be the break I need. So if you have a bead store in California and you would like a new instructor...drop me a line :)

I'm hoping Santa brings me a big shovel for Christmas...or maybe a back hoe so I can dig for all the positivity I need to make the changes my life desperately needs.


  1. Hang in there, Mikki - it's almost 2012! I hope the new year will bring good things your way and that the positive changes you're working toward will be realized.

  2. Thanks and Yes!...almost 2012....who knew you could be so looking forward to the year Armageddon happens :)
