Business First-- http://www.artisanclay.etsy.com/ is having a Tax Sale! Now through the end of Tax Day you can use the coupon code TAXTIME to receive 15% off your purchase in my etsy shop.
Also, my limited time clearance section will disappear tomorrow!
There is less than a week left to stop by my trunk show in North Kansas City, MO. I will travel out to KC at the end of the week and pick up my work. So.... if you are in the area, stop by the friendliest bead shop in town and tell them I sent you :-) (there is a link at the top right of the blog to the shop's website complete with directions )
I am only 4 sales away from reaching another 100 sales in my etsy shop. Those of you who have been following my blog for a while, know that I like to give away a FABULOUS prize to the wonderful customer who makes that little etsy counter hit 100!
A little while ago, a very nice bead shop owner pointed out to me that almost all of my beads and pendants are round.... I thought that maybe I should change that, so here are a few new pieces in rectangles! I hope you like them as much as my round pieces.
And then the life stuff--Don't read this if you don't care! It's not pleasant.
I started having panic attacks this week. I just started thinking about everything that is going on and I just felt like I couldn't handle it. It was really crazy-- I mean crazy, crazy!!
My travel plans, the Girl Scout trips for the kids, family, my house being a construction site, getting ready for the trunk shows, doing the taxes, my husband being out of work, paying the bills, my dog couldn't walk on his one leg, my brain was just going out of control.
I was just watching the other people in my household nap all day and I'm trying to deal with everything and I'm exhausted.
I was so exhausted that I passed out on the couch with the kids Friday night. I was awakened at 3 am by a drunk driver crashing into our 2 parked cars 15-20 feet from my sleeping head. My car was in pieces and now sitting at a diagonal, and was forced into my MIL's car parked in front of it causing much damage to her car. So... now my husband hasn't worked in a few weeks and the household is out 2 cars.... This is the third drunk driving accident at our house in the past few months!
I was so glad for the howling rain yesterday. I was so out of sorts. I really needed a day off. I had to deal with insurance agents and I had to do a lot of work on beads for my next trunk show.
I'm still feeling crazy. I heard the fire whistle last night and freaked out. I would be really happy to just stay home today and hug my kids. The sun is shining and I'm going to hibernate in my PJ's and get my new beads ready to fire. I really don't want to deal with trying to figure out how to buy a new car, and even just trying to get myself to work this week. I am the only one working after all...
I should be ok soon... Everything is just so uncertain right now. But that's what's new.
