I've been seeing a lot of craft and design challenges on my favourite blogs lately and thought to myself "hey, that would be a good way to keep the creative juices flowing.' And being just a little bit on the type A side I decided to not go with one of those namby-pamby 52 week challenges where you just make one new thing a week. Oh no, not me!!!
Starting June 1, 2012 I, Caroline Horne will make a new piece of jewelry every day for a year. I intend to docu...Read Full Post »

Well... it's been forever since I last posted an update. I need to get more disiplined about doing this so that my loyal readers (all two of you:D) will have something new to read.
I had a good Christmas season and the first cruise ship of the year was well worth the over nine hours on my feet. We were set up on a slope so my wheeled chair was a bit of a challenge to sit on. If I grabbed my table as I sat it didn't roll too far. However, every time I...Read Full Post »

As I sit here typing this blog I realize that I haven't made a single piece of jewelry since Christmas. With not having a workable space in our old digs, being extremely sick and moving I just haven't been motivated or creative. I hope that changes soon.
We are still unpacking so far we've managed the kitchen, bedrooms and have almost found the dining room:D. The cats are loving all the hidey holes among the boxes and they may be the only ones that will miss them when ...Read Full Post »

Well, found out about a week ago that I was a runner up in Canadianbeading.ca's "A Windy Fall Day" contest. I've learned to be patient with them because when you're selected as a finalist they tell you to expect your entry back by the end of "X" month. Well... you wait and wait and wait some more, then about a month past when they said you get your entry back you get either a box or big envelope from them with your jewelry, five copies of the magazine and your prize. Obvious...Read Full Post »

Well, it's Friday night and what's done is done and if I have time to make more pieces I'll be happy but as it stands I need to think about packing up. The logistics of displaying my creations and singing in a concert all in the same show are insane. Perhaps I am too. You never realize until you start in this kind of business how much work goes into simply displaying the jewellery. There's lighting, display stands, pricing the work, finding a plain white table...Read Full Post »
