This is the way I found my poor bench after a two month absence, even though it was covered dust found it’s way inside it.
After a whole day or washing, yes washing… buckets of water for the floor,soap, many moments of : ” ohhh, I forgot I had this” … of taking things up, taking things down, throwing many things and welcoming the new ones from the trip, those that remind me of home and that will keep me strong.
It ended up being halfway decent.
So grabbed these stones…
And here is what I made..
Oh, and the tiny mushrooms.. for fun!
And then I opened the shop, took a bunch of photographs of the new work and sat down to list and list ( for a very long time ) and well you can see some of it over here at the site: www.nataliaraya.com and to see the new pieces as they are finished the fb page, which is actually what I update the most : www.facebook.com/nataliajewelry
I am officially back in business. * Insert short happy little dance here .. **
I really am grateful for my job and soon I will have more limited time to do it, life is ever-changing and it is leading me to do some arranging in my use of time and focus, a season of hard work is coming I will tell you about this new road in a upcoming post… anyways I am really cherishing it every one of these last few days, where I can adjust how and when I work.
Thank you for reading!
