my work space and walking through a blogging Wonderland!

I took a snapshot of my jewelry workspace. Kind of a mess but that is because I do a lot of experimenting with each piece I make. I thought some people might be interested to see my workspace. Plus, I'm treating this blog kind of like my big internet scrapbook of life. I record my life, designs, progress, and etc. etc. This is definitely progress because I used to just sit on a mattress on the floor when I made jewelry. Talk about a sore back and neck!
Lately since starting this blog I've been out exploring the world of blogs, blogging, and the entire blogging community in general. Primarily I've been looking at blogs in crafts, fashion and art. I feel like there is this whole corner of the internet I've been missing out on! I never used to read blogs and thought the whole thing was kind of weird. This of course was my own stubbornness to seek out and explore something new. In the past couple days though I have started following probably 20 or so blogs. Reading other artists' successes, failures, ideas, art, and advice is so inspiring and also so helpful in navigating a realm of the internet I am not used to.

So, my piece of advice to you is to go out and explore some blog directories in whatever topics interest you. Sometimes it just takes some inspiration from someone else in your line of work to keep you pushing forward with your own goals and projects too.

That's all for now. I have to get ready because its MOTHER'S DAY TOMORROW! Just a little reminder. haha. Thanks for reading :)
