Oh no! It’s July!

July 3, 2012

It’s not that I don’t like summer. I LOVE summer but it’s just that now that it’s July and well into the second half of the year my days consist of WORK.  Not just work but cramming as much productivity as is humanly possible into each working hour.

It’s not that I haven’t been working, this is my full-time job, this is what I do.  As I sit here in my shop, surrounded by thousands of salt dough ornaments in various stages of completion, I realize that now. .

instead of putting in 6 hours of work each day it becomes 8, then 12, then it just goes on and on until my hands can’t take it anymore. I’m not complaining even if it sounds like I am. I love my life and wouldn’t trade it for anything! The life of a craftsperson.

Hope your summer’s happy!! Here’s some of my latest . . .
