I didn't leave the house today, or at least not yet, and I don't anticipating leaving it now, even though the sun is still shining at nearly 6:00 p.m.

I spent most of the day making jewelry, photographing it, and posting it in my Etsy shop. I tend to do the jewelry making in binges. Maybe it has to do with having to get all the stuff out, although I usually leave most of it out on my desk. Still, it's easier when I get into a rhythm of selecting the beads, putting them on the headpins and laying them all out, then getting out the tools and trimming the wires, bending the loops, putting them on the earwires, etc.

Today I branched out a little and made a couple of bracelets. I made a memory wire bracelet for my sister for Christmas, and she really liked it. I wasn't sure about it, but she liked the fact that it just winds around your arm, and you don't have to mess with trying to fasten a clasp. So I got out a big dish of pink and black and white lampwork beads that I bought awhile back, and made two bracelets, with matching earrings.

Now it's 10:00, and I didn't leave the house, except to help Bob carry the trash out.

Oh, I just remembered -- I did go out -- just long enough to take a picture of the daffodils. It's Spring!
