Inspiration Station – Yes It’s Been A While

November 15, 2015

I’ve no idea where to begin. This year has been a collection of ups and downs.

My mother has been ill with several problems this year. She is feeling better, but still has a few more tests to take. She remains stubborn, which I’ve learned is keeping her as healthy as possible.

Unfortunately this meant I couldn’t participate in any shows. With the holiday season underway, mail, FBook and Twitter blitzes are my main routes for advertising. Managed to start a YouTube channel (click to see) and posted my first how-to videos.

Work is, well, work. The company I work for expanded. While it’s great to have the additional space, it’s created more anxiety about income and more bills with additional equipment and employees. A lot of change in a short period of time–and sadly I don’t enjoy work as I once did. (But that’s another story for another time.)

The good news is I made it to Beadfest this year. Took 3 classes, all great fun. Of course new beads were found, chatted with new people and there is at least a dozen design ideas in my head/sketchbook. AND I had the chance to catch up with my friend E, just before she had her first child. Wooo!

The other good new is I’ve discovered two new fandoms to follow: Sherlock and TopGear(Classic) on Tumblr. These kids, (and I mean kids–most under 30) are a hoot. You know you’re mature when you read a post that uses the term “derp” and have no clue what it means.

Hopefully Thanksgiving to Christmas will be relatively peaceful. Pray for Paris, and the rest of the world.
