Apparently all I needed was one solid day without any outside expectation to get my table cleared off. I knocked out the rush ordered mask in the morning and started in on the dozen pendants that were left. As nap time for the children rolled around I was ready to start adding jump rings and ribbons. After dinner I got all assembly line on the dining room table and got all of them packed and labeled, ready to ship out this morning.

Seriously, the entire day was devoted to this task. Sure, I stopped to eat and feed the kids, but as the first day of Spring break, one daughter was just inhaling Easter candy and the other had her nose in the ds playing Mario. I know, bad parenting, but I figured we all enjoy one good day of chaos now and again and it wasn't like I wasn't watching them...I just didn't do much to stop them. I am, however, done now. Vacation is still on for the week and while I promise to not be as neglectful as I was yesterday, I will certainly give them a little space because, you know what? I need a little space for a bit and it works both ways.

Now that the shop is all caught up, it's time to finish remaking some sold pieces as well as thinking up something new to list. Oooh, I almost forgot, I got an email yesterday with some pictures in it. I think I'll drop the rest of the batch of these tomorrow maybe, but notice something interesting about the mask? Yeah, it's upside down and I kind of like it like that. The pictures were shot by Renee Azcra Woodward, www.woodwardstudios.com

She also currently has possession of my black, sequin encrusted mask to shoot that as well. I am so very gun shy when it come to photographers though. I keep emailing her all paranoid after another photographer requested pieces and then disappeared figuratively with them. I never got pictures nor my pieces back. I'm all bitter, but I'm glad I stepped out on the ledge again. I'll use these for the listing of the white mask along with it pictured right side up...I wonder if it will sell better in the new configuration? I'm back to it then.

Hi Pam
I can not figure how you get so much done in one day!!! (Maybe you don't sleep!) I would like to thank you for your free pendant pattern from your site. I have been doing some and have them on my blog today. I really like how the HDT ones turned out. What do you think? Just wanted to let you know and to thank you.

The inverted mask reminds me of the movie Labyrinth. Very David Bowie...especially with the hair thing. Definitely upside down potential...2 masks in one
