Where Does the Time Go?

As soon as my daughter has left for school at 8.15 I switch the computer on and get stuck in to the day's writing briefs, which usually take until lunchtime to do. Today I had the whole morning stretching out before me, with only one brief to write about Tampa Bay, Florida. So what have I done with my time? I made 2 pairs of steam punk Victoriana earrings, one pair in black, one in cream, and am really pleased with them.

And how come whenever I want to photograph my new creations, the daylight is dull and drab? This didn't stop me though and I've listed this black and white dotty brooch on Folksy to go with the dotty earrings and ring that are there too.

I've also spent some time adding new items to my fab new Zibbet shop, including some glass beaded necklaces with the most amazing large focal beads. I'm really pleased with the photos too, considering it hasn't stopped raining all day. Sun ... what sun?!

I don't suppose the fairies have done the washing up for me? No - Tuesday is their day off!


  1. Me too! When I'm done with breakfast, morning pages, etc. I'm on the computer catching up on the blog, fb, etsy shop, until lunchtime! Then art/jewelry/knitting/photographing/etsy listing, until time to start dinner! And the day is done!

  2. Wouldn't it be great to have a whole day. This is what I dream about!

  3. I'm amazed at how much I can relate to what you've posted here. Kids to school at 8.15, jumping to the computer for the things I enjoy (while wishfully thinking the cooking and housework would sort itself out on its own) and cat being a pest on my laptop (came in through your profile page).
    Despite all that, those a very cute unique earrings. :)

  4. Thanks, Arty. You should try having 2 cats attempt to climb on your lap along with the laptop!!
