Well, the summer list is getting much shorter. (Thank goodness since my summer break is almost over. Two weeks from today and I'll be back at it, full time.) But, there are two things on my list that I didn't get to...overhauling my Etsy shop and finishing more paintings. Well, maybe that's one thing!? Either way, they didn't happen. So, I've taken this as a sign and decided to close my Etsy shop for a short while and focus on getting some fiber pieces finished. The shop has never been very cohesive and that's always bugged me, so...I'm taking it where my heart is and that is with the fiber works. Expect a completely different look when the shop re-opens :)
As for the blog, I won't be posting much on a regular basis for the next few weeks. I have to get Little Man moved into college and I'll need to spend some time preparing for the new school year. So, needless to say, my extra time is limited right now. Blog posts take a while to complete and I have to think a lot about them beforehand. Writing is not my forte, for sure! But, I really like doing it, so I'll be back at it as soon as I'm settled into my routine again.
In the meantime, what I will be posting on, is the progress of my fiber pieces. They will be short posts, just to show you what I've been up to. But this is really supposed to be an art blog, so I'm going to try to take it back in that direction. Merry Monday and Word Wednesday will be back soon, though!
And, if any of you were wondering about my Olive and Ash... On the Go plans (that I was hoping to start this summer), it has been put on hold due to this impending move. Really, I just can't understand why the sales are called "short sales". Why??!! They are sooooo long! We're still waiting.
Well, if you've made it to the end of this rambling post... Thank you!
Until next time, I'll leave you with some images of fiber pieces that I've been admiring and that have inspired me over the years.
