Postpone reopen Home Business until when??

My first priority is my children and my health too.  

All my children are in full time school now.  Summer is coming.  So it is my chance to take care of my health to excises to prevent any health problems in future.   My children have activities that keep me busy. (More like drive, watch and sit) I need walk, run, bike, play sports and etc.  I do anything to lose my weight, more alert, more energies to do, and healthier.I do some clay and jewelry unfortunately they are gifts to family members and friends. 

Right now, I realized my time is limited but I really need to do it by take care of my health, children plus their education & activities and home.  

Yes, I still have sweet hubby but he can take care of himself and help out with children and home. 

I decided to wait until right moment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Sonya.

Summer 2006

I realized my time is very limited to working with clay and media mixed  because four children with me in whole summer. I do enjoying with my children so  I find it hard to make a time to working and playing with clay or crafts.    People are still encouraging me to do but I can do effort to make a time to do few projects and might abe to have a full time with clay when all children are back to school.

Thanks

Petal Cane

Flowerpetal.jpg

Click on picture to see close up.

Spring is just begininng.  We still have snow and started melt.  But we can smell and feel the spring is at moment here.  

I have been practice to make flower petal canes  and anther/stigma canes.  You can see above the flower on gold background that did not show good in picture. You can see slide thin petal cane on right side so I sliced very thin petal of cane and also sliced very thin anther/stigma of cane (middle of flower Petals). So I put each slided thin petals around like flower on gold background then add yellow/orange anther/stigma in middle of flower. I hope it is explain enough Soon I will make leaf cane that would nice to add touch on behind or front flower.  

This one will on flower pot as decor for my little daughter. She will add real flower in her flower pot.

 Her name is Charlene (“Cat”) Therien and her website at  http://www.catherienarts.com.

I bought her few flower canes and watched her demo to make handmade hair barrette. When I received her canes from mail and am still very amazing what she made with fine details works on canes. Not only that she also working with other artists to sell canes in EBay Auction. You can click on Cat’s link and find EBay Auction link among with other artists.

What is my plan with canes that I am going to make hair bands plus matching pendant and bracelet for my five years old daughter and six years old niece it would be perfect for spring time and Easter gift. I hope it is enough canes. Right now I am waiting for cane cutter to arrive so that I can cut cane very careful like thin as like paper.

I would like to buy canes from Cat and other artists. I am still make my own canes depend on the time.
