Balancing Act

Some days it is quite overwhelming to balance my day job with my love 'making jewelry' & spending time with family. I work as a Counselor during the day and when I get home most days I am absolutely exhausted. It always feels good to make a beautiful piece that I know someone will love, but sometimes having the motivation to do so is such a challenge. I now have a new goal to make more time for my jewelry designs & am really excited to be taking a 'Three Day Jewelry Intensive Course' at the end of July. This class is taught by a local jewelry artist and I am looking forward to learning from her skills & experience as an artist. I think this will help me regain my focus and find inspiration for new pieces to come.

I am participating in Etsy's Second Annual 'YART Sale', which lasts until Sunday, June 14th. It's a site-wide sale with many different shops taking part. Searches using the term "yart" will bring up shops with discounts on items and shipping costs in all categories.

Come by LizzyBDesigns for Yart sales on some beautiful handmade jewelry!
