Finally- A New Post!

 how I've been spending most of my time.
how I'd rather be spending my time.

I have been away from my blog for about a month for two main reasons.  
ONE: No painting has been going on, so really nothing to post.
TWO:  Moving, so I spend most of my time looking for a place to live- and the dreaded packing of the house and trying to sort out what should get boxed up and moved!
Usually, my husband's work involves him commuting weekly by plane to wherever the current contract is located.  This time it involves us relocating.  Hopefully, it will be worth all the trouble- by way of a home located very near the ocean!
I really need to make some time for painting or just spending all of my time packing will make me crazy.  I rarely go this long without painting- even though it is technically work, it is my relaxation.  SO- at least once a week, hopefully, I will get into my studio and paint!  And, needless to say, the studio will be the last room I box up.
Thankfully, I have two really large orders of soldered charms (seahorses, sand dollars, and starfish) to get finished.  That means I have to take a break from packing up, and get these charms soldered.  It will be a VERY welcome break.  I also need to get up to date on visiting the blogs of my fellow artists and see what everybody has been doing!


  1. I'll be the first to tell you it's nice to see your post. It reads like your cup is full. Plus it's summer and from what I've noticed, there is more time between posts on all the blogs I follow; everyone seems to prefer to be out enjoying the season, rather than being confined to the studio--at least that's how it is with me.

  2. Hello Sheryl - so great to see you post again - have missed you!
    Do you have a moving date yet?
    A house by the ocean - what a wonderful house that will be xx

  3. Je suis très heureuse de vous lire... prenez le temps de souffler un peu et de prendre vos marques...
    Gros bisous.

  4. My goodness - this is really big news for you and it is bound to be stressful. Best wishes as you find your new location and home. Keep painting and keep in touch!

  5. Moving is such a stressful time. I wish you luck in your move and hope you find the home of your dreams by the ocean. That would be the ultimate dream for me!

  6. Oh my! You've been busy! Good luck with the move! I'm sure you will be painting again soon!

  7. At least you will be in a house near the beach! Good luck with the move Sheryl.

  8. Thank you all- it is great to be back to blogging and checking out all of your latest work! Now, I just have to schedule some painting time.

  9. You're not alone in finding it difficult to get to the computer. We're not moving... just busy with summer gardens and such. And it's so hot! Ick! A house near the ocean sounds like a dream. It will make all the packing worthwhile!

  10. Thanks, Teresa- I agree, when its hot- I am just drained!


Thank you so much for your comments- I love to hear what you think!
