Rainy days...renew, rewind, reflect...

I'm kinda getting tired of all the rain...but with rain, comes renewal and a chance to rewind and reflect on the real reasons I love living in a rain forest...after all, I knew what I was getting myself into when I moved here.  I love sitting at my desk, making jewelry and listening to the rain falling through the trees.  I go to another place...a place deep inside my creative mind and that mind takes over...drawing from the energy of nature.  I enjoy watching my hands create the things my mind invents.  Most of the time I don't even know what I'm beginning...but always love what comes in the end...like these:
 
Seems like the birds like it, too...they just sing and sing and sing:
And everybody always finds a safe place to stay warm and dry...
So, with all the rain, I've been busy, busy, busy making lots of things and getting ready for "The Big Crafty" that is going on today in downtown Asheville.  I kept my eye on the weather and the forecast and the radar is showing an 80% chance of nasty weather, beginning this afternoon.  I decided that, even with all the work I've done, it's just not worth the sacrifice.  If my stuff gets wet, it gets ruined.  It would cost me way more in losses than any money I would have potentially made...if that many people even braved the storms to come see me in the first place.  So what do I do with all this inventory now?  How about a "rainy day sale"
I'll be listing several new things today...so stay tuned!

Happy July 7th!  Enjoy the rain!
