New necklace charms for sale on eBay!

That exclamation point feels a bit out of place tonight. Even though I am always excited when I put a new batch of necklaces out there, I've been feeling very quiet and contemplative these days. I think this range of moods is just all part of the creative process and I guess just a part of being human in general.

Sometimes I feel like sitting back, being introspective, and just spending time thinking and observing and being. Other times, I'm full of energy and new ideas are swirling about and I just can't seem to write them down fast enough. I am most definitely going through an introspective phase right now.

Nothing at all wrong with reflection. The hard part about creating is that all others see is the final production usually and don't think that behind that small wonderful piece of art, that there was hours, weeks and sometimes more than that spent in just imagining it, hearing the right song on the radio, having that perfect day outside or a wave of inspiration hitting you when you're not interrupted by reality.

Works of Genius are brilliant only because they take the unimagineable and make it look easy.

Introspect all you like ;)

What a nice message from one very sweet boyfriend. I love those times when things seem to flow so easily, but need to learn to have just as much appreciation for the reflective times. xo

And Sarah, I predict B's answer to be a big fat yes, as he loves all you guys to death. :)

A great mind needs a break sometime and it might have to be with that nice boy you have. He is your smiley face isn't he?? Maybe it is your weather there. Scraping off that car is not fun. We have had 2 days of rain but with April showers come May flowers!! Oh for the oldies but goodies...

I felt the same way too at times. I agree totally to what your boyfriend said... well-said ;)

All this flattery is bound to go to my head. And yes, being a tall man, there's plenty of me to go around ladies. Just keep it orderly and don't mess up the hair.

I find that I have some of the most success during my reflective periods. Good things are to come.

Speaking of new creations. I have some more ideas about a custom charm. And, I am expecting my tax return (Gotta love the child credit) and what better way to utilize this money than to invest in orginal art work. Okay well, this is how I would like to utilize it. I will be in touch soon.
