Fall and other things

Fall comes quickly here and is gone just as fast....I think its the wind! Nothing can stand up to it. Got a few pictures of some of my flowers in the back yard this week after a couple frosts. I love how beautiful they still look, even with the subdued colors, and the withering petals. The rose was a surprise...it hasn't bloomed for a long time.
I made some earings today. My aunt sent me the music note etched metal, and I loved it so much I had to make something with it right away. I have hardly made any jewelry, so I made some mistakes..but since they are just for me, it's ok. :o)

There is a big art show coming up here in my town. Last year I sold everything that I put in it, which was a huge surprise (and a bit of an esteem builder) Sometimes its hard to keep creating when people just don't seem to "get" what you make. That's when I have to remind myself that I am creating for me. For my health and joy and personal fulfillment...if other people happen to like it, that's the pink icing on top of the cupcake! So far I have created nothing for the show this year though. So much life stuff, and not much studio time. Hopefully I will actually get more than one post in this month. I would love to have a better record for myself of all the art and life stuff for down the road.
