Wow! Thanks so much for all your comments and participation regarding my June give-away! Nice to see how diverse everyone's tastes are, which is great for me since my Etsy shop primarily focuses on one of a kind pieces.
I know I've been lazy again keeping up my blog entries. To be honest, I have been so buys that I just haven't had the energy to fill you all in about my latest happenings.
Last week, John and I went on a nice drive around the island, bought some fast food ( which we only do perhaps once or twice a year ), found ourselves a nice spot on the beach and had lunch. See pictures below.
I am looking forward on taking some time off in the middle of August. It will be good to get away from my studio and come back refreshed with some new inspiration.
It is summer solstice today ( A solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is most inclined toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun's apparent position in the sky to reach its northernmost or southernmost extreme) and most Scandinavians celebrate that with a barbeque on the beach and a bonfire. Unfortunately, as almost every year, it is raining on midsummer night.
If you have checked out my shop lately you will probably have noticed some new items with some fabulous juicy looking stones. I'm so lucky. I have an awesome team of stone suppliers ( sorry I won't reveal them ) from Italy and Germany. They have the most interesting and high quality gemstones here in Europe that I have been lucky enough to find.
I am working on some more new pieces and hopefully have a whole bunch ready to list sometime next week or perhaps the end of this week. I hope that will stir up some activity in my shop!
I'm off to bed. It's only 9:30pm and I can't stop yawning.
Wishing everyone a super fabulous day!
