A year in the making, day 356

Monday, sleepy Monday. Too much fun this weekend! But I survived.

I'm taking my personal leave day Wednesday for my birthday. Of course, I'll probably be going to spend most of it doing those little bits of cleaning I was going to do every day so I didn't have to do it all at once. I have spent years developing my mad procrastination skills.

Instead of cleaning last night, I was making more jewelry, and finished the second of these just a little while ago. Not listed yet, as I missed the good light, although photoshop and a good camera make up for these kinds of problems.

I noted at my last event that I really didn't have enough Steampunk jewelry left in the stock to fill out a full-sized table display, so I'm going to have to start working on that. Steamcon II will be here before I know it!

And another piece, hanging on to the last few weeks of summer, a sterling silver dragonfly with rose quartz and garnet. I actually got this dragonfly from the selection of sterling silver pendants months ago from, as a part of their Beaders who Blog program**,but it disappeared mysteriously while I was still plotting what to do with it! Well, I found it last night, when I spilled some beads while working on the sofa. It was hiding under the cushions. I swear I looked for it there when I first lost it!

It's a gorgeous little bug, and it was originally supposed to be hiding out in my field of swarovski flowers in my Spring Waterfall necklace, but I think he'll be fine here with rose quartz and garnets instead.
