The past week has been a week of thinking. I've haven't been making any jewelry but instead have been thinking...about my business, about my blog, about the rest of my life.....and what needs to change and what I like and what I should do more of and what I should do less of....
So there will be some changes this year. Look out for them - and do offer feedback.
The first one is the subjects of my blogs. At times like this when I haven't made anything new to show you and tell you the story behind, what do I write about? What will interest you ? So here's something to start. My 2008 year in town/cities. It's a list of the places I visited last year in date order, where I spent one or more nights.
Ormond Beach, FL Sanibel Island, FL Healdsburg, CA Carmel, CA Cheltenham, Ironbridge, Windrush Lake, London,UK Vancouver, Canada Seattle, WA Portland, OR Whidbey Island, WA Bainbridge Island, WA West Lafayette, IN Cheltenham, Lincoln, Watford, London, UK Half Moon Bay, CA
Interesting to seem them listed. There is alot of "water" involved in the list - islands, lakes, beaches, bays.....
Maybe if you have a blog, this could be our blog meme - ie you write out your towns/cities of 2008 too in your blog and let me know in the comments section so we can all take a look! Wonder what travelling will come about in 2009? Nothing planned at present, except our usual trips back to England......
This blog tells you the stories behind my silver and aluminum creations - namely: why the design came to me; what inspired me; what story is connected to the piece; how the piece starts a new story etc. The stories add so much more to the piece and continue to develop as the piece goes to it's new owner.
I also tell you a little about my life in the wine country of Sonoma County, California and my husband writes once a month about what is happening in our vineyard that month.
I hope you'll come back regularly. I look forward to your comments.
