Relaxing in Savannah, GA

Unscripted Plans...some people look at us as though we are on an eternal vacation.  Nothing about this RV lifestyle could be further from the truth.  While we are open to changes, fluctuations, relaxing when the opportunity arises, we work hard at planning.  We are not just sitting here in our RV vacationing.

We are constantly working, making jewelry, planning our next stops, keeping websites current and sharing our news with the world.  And as things do, plans end up changing.  So, our current direction seems to be leading us northward and not west.  It just seems way too big of an adventure for right now.

Living organically does require that we sit back and relax at times, which is really difficult to do for many of us.  But while sitting here in beautiful Savannah, it seems that some days are requiring that we enjoy bird watching, collecting photos, listening to their lovely songs and taking note of how nature can teach us so much about life. Relax, enjoy, sit back, take it in...ahh.  I am talking to myself here.  I am a bit of a driven person so it seems my time here has allowed for me to have some relaxation and so I am practicing enjoying the beautiful creation in which I am surrounded.

How Long Will it Last?

How long will what last, you ask?  I've often written about depression and mental health, because it's not uncommon to wonder how long a spell of depression will hang around.  It's a beast.  You can read about how depression feels in another post I wrote. (click here)  But that isn't the purpose of this post.

Instead, I'd like to address a few points of concern from customers.  Every once in a while someone has a concern.  Most of the time the feedback is so amazing that we artists forget that everyone won't always be happy.  While we do our best to please, we know that sometimes everyone won't or can't be satisfied, but we try anyway.  Thankfully the concerns are few and far between.

So, in an effort to address these issues, I thought that perhaps it's necessary to give you some of the details regarding wear-a-bility, materials, etc., in a blog post.  Let's begin with materials discussion.  Throughout the past nine years, we have learned a lot …

Re-purposing Vintage Hifi cabinets

These are three vintage stereo cabinet makeovers that my husband and I have repurposed.  They make great storage units, not to mention they are colorful and beautiful.  The coral one is my absolute favorite.  The addition of the waverly fabric is a perfect finishing touch.  

Below left: this cabinet had a complete front face which we removed and then added the three spindles back into the middle for support.  I have since moved this to my studio for stowing away my jewelry cases after each show.  The smaller turquoise cabinet houses files and extra printer paper.



Business and Burdens

Today is one of those days when life has come crashing in all around me.I feel myself sinking beneath the load of frustration, stress and disappointment. I can't win at life from the popularity contest standpoint.For me, I have never been able to break that barrier and it has not really bothered me.Every once in a while, though, I feel the desire to soar and to be the one people talk good about.I'd like to have the world see me for who I am and even more I'd love for every person I know to wear a piece of our jewelry. I'd like the words I write and the pictures I post to get tons of likes...seriously, why else do it, right?!I often don't get the response that I seek and some times it gets the best of me and sends me into a bit of a tizzy.And...if you are honest, you might feel the same way too.Here we are just trying to stand out and make our place in the world.It can be so frustrating!
