March 2014……..ice (non blogging) breaker….

So, where does time go and how does it get away so quickly from me????

Well, in a way that’s not true because I am very aware of not having posted here for quite a while and finding some ‘justification’ to myself for not doing so but in the end, really……it’s not about having ‘the perfect Theme’ or ‘the right mood to post’ or oh so many ‘other reasons’ I tell myself are valid.

So, yes we have done lots since my last post and I am not going to post them tonight, but this is ‘the break’ from having an ‘idle space’ in blogland. A ramble to break the ice.

In February while we were away on holiday, I jumped on the back end of a blogging course with a very animated and energetic group of blogging students and a wonderfully energetic and patient teacher at the BlogWithPip course.

The e-course was coming to the end of the course but I decided to jump on anyway as I am hoping to revamp my site, open my store on Etsy and in general review what/where I am heading at this point. I learned lots, was reminded of ‘stuff’ that I had ‘forgotten’ and in general picked up lots of new info and ideas to put into practice in the coming months.

I will be joining the next intake in May from the start so that I can ‘start at the beginning’ and hopefully I will then be able to put up a proper post for the end-of-course Cup-of-tea.

In the meantime I haven’t been totally uncreative. I did make up a batch of some rather nice glass pendant charms which are now available at the Fine Art Kangaroo Island gallery in Kingscote. I did enjoy making them and will be making a few more to send in. They are rather nice even if I say so myself. Here’s a pic of some of them.

It’s not the best photo and I need to desperately learn to take better photos of my pieces……I sense another learning period coming up……..

One of my blogging classmates ordered a couple of the pendants for herself and she included them in a blog post of hers which gave me a really nice warm, fuzzy feeling.

I love her blog – it’s reminiscent of warm, balmy days by the beach with palm trees gently swaying in the tropical breeze………so much like the tropical beaches where I spent a lot of my holidays in younger days gone by……….

In the meantime, if you would like to stay in touch – head on over to my facebook page if you haven’t already ‘Liked’ it.

Signing off for now, until next time 🙂
