Snow Snow and most likely MORE SNOW!

So a big winter storm is heading our way! Just fantastic. I'm not the biggest fan of snow. It's horrible to drive in, too many accidents, and the cold just does not work for me. I'm hoping the state will get shut down just so I don't have to go out in that mess.

One positive thing about the snow will be I might get a full day to lounge around, relax, and possibly make some jewelry. Lately, as I've said before, I haven't felt creative. Well, last night it hit me and I actually was able to make some pieces! YAY! Of course, the minute I finish making them, my younger sister says how pretty one is and wants to keep it for herself. I just can't say no to her. She's the baby of the family, I'm the oldest; I just like to spoil her. So I'll probably let her keep it. I'm just too nice when it comes to her.

Sometimes I wish my mother and I could just make a living selling our creations. With this economy, who knows if that will ever happen. I currently work as a call center representative. Not something I dreamed about as a little kid. I went to the Fashion Institute of Technology for college... and now, to pay the loans I work in a call center.

I'm hoping one day I can actually put my degree and creativity to some good use. I guess we'll have to wait and see. For now, it's back to the real world with working at a job that isn't fulfilling and dealing with snowy blizzards and horrible drivers.


  1. Lovely jewelry! and never lose hope of making a living selling your stuff - if you have a passion for it I am sure you will find a way. :-)

  2. I'm with you - totally not a fan of snow ... and yet, the storm is here. Looks like the weather peeps were actually right about this one. Bah! Be careful if you need to be on the roads today!
