Sunday of sorting, seperating, Jewelry Affaire and Bead Bloggers

Sorting thru your life and possessions of nearly 13 yrs with someone isn't easy. Even if you both still love each other and will remain friends, the seperation process is very difficult. I've been going thru all my possessions deciding what I want and what can go. I'll have to go thru the want pile again and whittle it down again to what I have to have and what can go. I wish this process were over, but I am trying to stay positive and do the work that's needed to be done. Id certainly rather spend this time creating or doing other things, but it is what it is for now.

On a happier note, I got the latest issue of Jewelry Affaire and see one of my pieces was accepted!

 "The Numbers Game" necklace is in the issue along with my fellow O&E Design team sisters Jane, Jen, Kristen and Deryn.

 There's so many wonderful pieces in this issue, its always so inspiring!

one day at a time, one decision at a time, one breath at a time... is sometimes the only way to get through things... and when it is over, you will have your creating time back (or maybe you can reward yourself with some of that at predetermined times - i know that helps me in emotionally charged times)... congrats on the article... hoping your back is cooperating?
