No I wasn't gone on another planet, I was just a looooong time away from my blog. Although sometimes I felt I was on another planet. I've had a hard time getting back to business and to «normal» life after this summer. Ellie was at home most of the time. I thought I could find time to work while she was here instead of day camp but I couldn't. She hates day camp and it was becoming a nightmare just preparing her to go in the mornings, so I told her we would try for this summer to keep her home while still working on my business. But I couldn't get organized or find 2 full hours to work in the day. As a result business was really slow and I got a bit discouraged.
I think I am getting back in the swing of things now so I will have new beads in the days to come. I did list some nice clearance beads in my Etsy shop so you can go have a look. You could find some pretty beads for a lower price.
