Just another weblog


So sorry that I have been AWOL but with the upcoming show in November it is all I can do but to work day and into the early night to make sure that I have enough inventory to do this show. I also have to start to put together a class for making earwires, and beginning wrapping, which I will be teaching two days after the show.

The weather here is still hot and humid and I am not holding out for fall weather for at least another month or so. Okay, I know, I know, you say Florida….what fall weather????? Well, I will let you in on a secret…not all of Florida is like Miami. In the Northern part we get temp in the 20’s in the winter, and have four distinct seasons with summer being the longest, fall, winter and spring are short but here nonetheless.

It is almost 8:00 am and I need to get my day going. Have a wonderful one yourselves, later, Ellen

EEEEEK you want me to do what!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my, oh my…my heart starts to beat faster, my upper lip is showing beads of sweat, I start to shake as the adrenelin starts coursing through my body. My hand is trembling with the knowledge that I will have to pick up that darned needle and thread and do something with it and that soon I will be shouting words so crude they would make a sailor blush!! Trust me, I have tried to overcome this fear of sewing, weaving, and working with long lengths of cord in every method known to mankind, the last being Kumihimo., but to no avail. Yes, I know I am masochistic.
However, I just came across this wonderful etsy shop called Totus Mel and my jaw droped to my chest and I fell in total awe and I realize that with talent such as this, I don’t have to risk my health or vocabulary again.
Thanks etsy, life is good,
