It seems like every time I have a jewelry party I totally crash afterwards. After 3 months of non-stop jewelry making, and weeks of building up for the party, a large sigh of relief often takes shape in not opening my craft room door for several days. Unfortunately, add to that starting a new job where I work 30-hour shifts weekly (hospital chaplain = love it, hate the hours) and suddenly making jewelry isn't so relieving anymore. So I inquire of you, friends: How do you balance your personal and your work life? How do you find energy when you come home from a draining day? As of late all I can do on the weekends is nap and maybe watch TV to decompress. Not fun! So, Bead Up buddies, my apologies for being so MIA lately. I have lots of new items to add to Etsy and custom pieces I have made here and there to share with you - which will happen - as soon as I can figure this balancing act out!

Meanwhile, Bead Up is co-sponsoring a GIVEAWAY! My sorority sister Kari of 2DogsAndABlog is giving away one of my dainty necklaces!
