Plans for the rest of 2021
Okay, so, after much consideration, I wanted to let people know what my plans are for this page for the rest of the year regarding my on-going projects etc.
My jewellery work:
I have canceled my last show for the year and will resume them next summer/spring. My online store is currently closed, but I will reopen it when I feel I have the strength to get back upstairs (where my bedroom/workroom is) as I'm just not up to it physically yet. New projects are also largely on hold (can't play with fire while still hooked up to oxygen!). Once my shop reopens, I will be reopen for limited custom orders.
I still have two more months of chapter drafts for From the Ashes and will continue to post them on their normal third week of the month schedule. However, I will not be working on any new chapter drafts, book resurrection progress, etc. until the new year. I just don't think I'll be able to focus well on writing until we are past the upcoming holidays (and my sister's birthday which is in November) which will be difficult this year without my sister. Should I find I can, I will, but between my physical healing (I am still so tired!) and the emotional healing, I just don't see myself being able to write well until then.
Of all of my projects, this is the one I see being able to work on sooner than anything else. I can't give any idea yet on when new artwork will be available, just that I do see myself being able to paint much sooner than write or create jewellery. I don't know, perhaps it's because artwork is often so connected with emotion and, right now, emotion is something I am overflowing with. So, if I post anything more this year, expect it to be digital paintings.
As the page is going to be largely silent until the new year, I won't be doing my weekly updates or posts about my monthly plans until the new year unless I actually have something to share.
Thank you all so much for your support and understanding during this time!
