what makes me happy

I'm feeling better today than I was late last week. It did help to get Christmas (mostly) put away and take a couple of naps over the weekend. Laundry done, etc., makes me feel like I've accomplished something.

I have sold several bracelets on ebay recently. I love this one because it looks so earthy and organic. The beads look as if they came out of the ground.
The Gallery at VAAM underwent some refurbishment last week as it does every first week of January, when the storefront is closed so that painting and other work can happen. The hanging committee is working on setting a new exhibit today and The Gallery will reopen tomorrow. They are a very hard-working bunch, that hanging committee, and they always do a great job. I only have a couple of new pieces in the upcoming exhibit, but I think they're nice.
A close friend who owns a couple of my pieces has asked me to do a fiber piece for a specific spot in her home. I'm excited to get started on it and actually have an idea or two half-formed in my head. I really mean to get back to doing more fiber and mixed media pieces right away. Time to pack up the jewelry making for now, although it's never far from hand.

I think it's the time of year. I have been feeling really low for days and everything is such an effort. I'm glad you're starting to feel more like doing something. Roll on the Spring!
