It's been almost two years since I've dug out my beads. I've done some custom wedding orders here and there and lots of repairs but I haven't felt inspired to make jewelry since I was pregnant. What happened? To be honest, I'm not one-hundred percent sure.

It's still on my mind though. People still ask me constantly if I am still making jewelry or if I still have that jewelry business. Seriously, all of the time. I'm still being given bags of jewelry to use and am asked to fix private pieces often (which I don't mind at all). I know I'll make it again. I still have boxes (and boxes) of things to work with and have been playing with some designs in my head lately. It's still in there but other creative methods are singing louder to me right now and I'm listening to those.
I do have some jewelry left from my heyday in the shop at reduced prices (and remember there's that 20% code KITTENFEVER until Monday!) which I would absolutely love to be worn by someone (Mother's Day gifts??). I've been pairing down my personal collections in the instagram shop and will also have lots at this fun event on Sunday. It feels good to be decluttering that part of my life. It's been therapeutic. Hell, everything has been therapeutic for me lately, it seems. And I'm digging it.
