...hello? Is anyone still there?...

I wouldn't be surprised if nobody was... it has been an awfully long time since I posted. 

What can I say? Life got in the way, but mostly it was just me getting in my own way. I do that. Often. Feeling I had nothing worth sharing. And then, my muse left me - well, at least she wasn't here much.

I kept on making stuff - trying new techniques, learning - but never really finishing things. Always doubting whether it was finished, whether it was good enough... maybe you could say I was looking for myself. And then I got lost. In the forest of doubt.
And days run into weeks run into months...

So, did I lose my doubts, you ask? No, not really. My muse has been visiting more often, though. And I have finally finished a couple of pieces that have been lying around on my work bench for longer than I care to mention. As well as some new earrings. Nothing spectacular. But it feels good to have a few things labeled 'finished'. The 'studio' still needs to be renovated, due to 'new' (new to me, that is) old cabinets that have been acquired for storage - fantastic cabinets, I am over the moon about them. A couple of months (plus a lot of work and plenty of money) were invested in giving the house a face lift. So - things have been happening. And I have decided - yes, decided - that it is time I tried to find my virtual voice again and time to come out of the hermit's cave... now I am hoping that someone is still listening.
