Getting into the swing of things

Swing Treasury on Etsy

So, it's just about the end of the summer and time to get back into the swing of things for the fall. We had back to school night at the Elementary School this evening. Everything was exciting and new for the kids. Back to school night for the High School was cancelled due to the Earthquake! School has not even begun and there are already cancellations!

This summer has seemed to fly by in some ways and has felt long in others. I started a new job about 6 weeks ago, so I have been feeling a bit frazzled. I am working from home as a Search Engine Evaluator for a company called Leapforce. It's a lot of reading guidelines and then applying what I've learned to evaluating search engine results. The company seems great so far. They have an online chat with other agents which has been really nice. The other agents have been welcoming and very helpful. I have been away from this type of technical reading for so long that it's been an adjustment getting my brain to work in a manner that can comprehend what I'm reading. The best part of the job is that I can work from home in my PJs, work around my kids schedules and still create jewelry. I think I just need to get into the swing of about you?

I can't believe that it's already August today! I completely got caught up in summer and forgot all about the Artist of the Month post for this month. Oh well, such is life.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful summer. I am making charms and anklets which seem to be the big sellers this summer. Here are two anklets that I just finished and listed on Etsy. I'll post some of the new charms this week.

Silver Fish Blue Beaded Anklet

Silver Oh Happy Day Purple Beaded Anklet
Enjoy your summer day & I promise I'll return with The Artist of The Month post for September.
