Something I Wore

I bought two sets of these silver bracelets years ago… one set was for Love and the other for Luck.  Over the years several of them broke (they were on elastic) and lost.  I finally decided that the ones that managed to survive however needed to finally be transfered to wire so that they too wouldn’t go flying off my wrist.  The new version of these old bracelets is what you see above with a few extra trinkets added to the old ones. 🙂


Still Here

It’s been a while, huh? NaNoWriMo back in November sort of sucked the life out of me and then I was working on all sorts of Christmas gifts which took up all of my writing and blogging time. After the holidays I was served up a massive helping of Drama at work that just sucked ass, and now I almost feel like things are kinda sorta getting back to normalish again. 🙂

I have actually been writing. I managed to get one lonely chapter of a book finished in the past month or so, and I have a partially finished blog post in the notebook that’s in my knitting bag. The only reason I haven’t yet typed it up is because it’s on a very personal topic and it kind of kicked my ass when I wrote it last week. In fact I broke down in tears while writing part of it and I was in public at the time, which for me is a really big no no. I cry over things like movies and commercials and children performing, but I don’t generally cry over my own stuff. So the fact that I not only cried but cried in a coffee shop is a big deal… which in turn has made revisiting it to type, edit and post kind of low on the totem pole. I will post it though… I promise. 🙂 Just not today.

I posted earlier this week on Facebook that my life was suffering from a lack or artsy creative stuff this week. Thankfully though it’s been a rather artsy season so far despite this week’s lack of production.

We call him "Mew Mew"

Ooh and since the first of the year I’ve read six books which really makes me happy (my 2010 book count was 32). If you’re interested in seeing what exactly I’ve been reading, check out the GoodReads link on the sidebar.

So although I haven’t been blogging and I haven’t been writing as much as I would like, I have been a busy chick. What creative goodness are you up to lately?
