Solid Foundation

I finally got my act together the last two weeks and put my rear in the saddle again.  I've been busy assembling pieces that I made at the beginning of summer, photographing the finished pieces and loading them onto Esty.  My creative juices are flowing again.... I'm sketching, pulling out my beads and ordering more findings and clay. And, I sent my first order to a jewelry fabricator to have some of my original pieces duplicated with molds and the lost wax technique so I can create more elaborate pieces with better price points!  I can't wait to see the results.


Considering I've been under the weather the last week it's a miracle that I've been so productive .... maybe it's the new birthday year cycle getting in gear (my birthday was Monday the 20th).  I'm 44 years young now and I've heard that 44 is a powerful number. The number four "vibrates with paying attention to detail and building a solid foundation for the future.  In 44, the effect is doubled".  Well, that's what I'm doing!


Here's some of what I've been working on... all available on my Etsy shop...

Always i discover much deliciousness when i come for a visit!!! Isn't it great when the muse returns!! Happy belated birthday wishes, fellow virgoan (mine is the 21st lol, wish i was only at the 44 stage, sighs, lol.) i know exactly the what you meant in the previous post too - one of my almost most fave things to do is to organise & tidy, it drives folks to distraction, but oh feels good!! x ruthie x

Thank you Ruthie! I'm laughing right now because I have several Virgo followers now....and many new Virgo friends! I love it that we all "get" each other. I must admit I'm married to one too! : )

ruthie said...

Hi Penny, Thanks for your visit and wonderful comments which I have thought of myself and which did help pull me through the whole thing...Now that the weather is getting cooler, I may perhaps take a drive up to Ojai and we could finally meet for lunch or whatever. I would very much like that...right now I’m absorbed in watching “The Miners” being rescued ...such a miracle. c
