Loving Summer and Working on Fall

"Envy" bracelet

This summer I've been trying to be a little more proactive in preparing for my Fall arts festivals. I'm the world's worst procrastinator, so my typical M.O. is to put things off until the last possible minute, which causes me to be up very late creating new work for the two weeks prior to a big show. I'm happy to say I've done pretty well with my consistency this summer! This bracelet is another of my new pieces, and this past week, I've created eight pairs of pretty detailed earrings. Now I just need to get them photographed! I've also updated both my Etsy store and my website with all the new pieces I've had a chance to photograph. Hoping to get some additional pieces shot this weekend, but it looks like the weather may not cooperate. That'll give me time to experiment with something else! I've been itching to create more books, and my giant gallon jug of heavy gesso has been calling my name.

Being a born and bred Florida girl, the summer heat doesn't bother me as much as it does those who may have come to Florida from cooler climates.  I love Summer.  The pace is slower, things on campus are very quiet, and the days are nice and long.  My redheads love summer camp, since their schedule is chock full of fun activities.  Today, they have three large water slides at camp. Three!  I want to go to summer camp!  They are also making some sort of lighthouse out of a flashlight.  Interested to see how that turns out.  How's your summer going?
