Where I have been

I am so sorry to everyone.
I have been getting ready for Sandy Camp, with my local polymer clay guild the San Diego Polymer clay guild.
I have been working on my jobs while trying to watch Madi (my grand daughter), write for the blog, taking care of my etsy store, making stuff, taking care of a gnarly cold (everyone in the house), marking all of my pieces for sale( not done with this as of this writing 10/05/10), making pirate earrings for the board members, making pirate necklaces for the board members, making cards for thank yous (print out all of the pictures and cut the card stock, glue all of the pictures to the cards I folded), pack my stuff to wear, pack my clay to play with, shop for food to take with me, pack goodie bags with board members, post blogs for while I am gone, read, blogs, go to Mrs. B's 31 days of Halloween everyday, do the dishes, clean house and vacuum, feed the cats, clean the cat box, take a moment for myself and my mental health, and I am only getting a piece of all these things done.

Do you ever feel that the world is speeding up? Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!

I have been trying to get to read everyone everyday, but my life has been so crazy, I haven't.
I am so sorry, I have missed you all. Maybe when I get back from this, I can get back to a little normal, whatever that is.
I will be closing the Etsy store while I am gone.
I am leaving the family and Madi home to fend for themselves.
I will have my comment moderation on and I also have posts lined up for the week. Do not know if I will have access to my blog. So comment and I will read them when I get back.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I will be playing with clay, something a little new and different, LOL!!


  1. Marie - deep breathing. lol!!! Just go and have fun. Forget about everything else. I know your do-list must be forty feet long, but I also know that you will make this weekend magical for a lot of people (I want to be a board member! I want a pirate necklace - boo hoo!) haha. See you when you get back! xox Pam

  2. Awe, no sorries, Marie!!! I am so exhausted just READING all you have been doing! Little zipped up skully is SOOOOOO adorable. LOVE the earrings too. Hope it is a fun, relaxing trip for you. Enjoy! **kisses** Deb

  3. Life has speeded up waaaaay too fast! (and I so am hating Blogger at the moment--having to sing in repeatedly, having the pges jump when I try and type a comment---ACK!)
    I am finally on the road to recovery--hang in there. WHat gets done, well, you know the line.
    The pirate items are tres cool! (as always!)
