In Progress

I'm working on something to expand my Candy's Heart line. I must admit that it is inspired by a few pieces that a couple of our favorite silversmiths have been producing. There are a few design elements that I'm hammering out before I take photos. I've shown it to several people & have gotten a pretty positive response from all of them. A couple of them wanted me to tell their boyfriends/husbands that they wanted one. I'm always a little uncomfortable doing that, so I'll leave it up to the ladies to make their wishes known. I wanted to get the real "Candy" to model the necklace, but alas, it may not come to fruition as her schedule is a bit harried for the next week or so.
I really need to get working on some staple pieces for my shop, but my muse has left. I don't know where she went, but I'm sure she's having more fun than I. At least I hope she's sleeping better than I. Insomnia is awful. How can something that is so natural become so ellusive? I sit here at night, really quiet so as not to "excite" myself into sleeplessness, but I still witness the wake up calls of the birds while the encroaching dawn permeates the darkness. Another night lost, which means another day lost. *sigh*

Maybe your muse is on vacation with mine, because she has disappeared too! I am also having trouble sleeping, which makes for a crappy day. I'll be glad when Fall gets here and it's not so hot. Maybe that will help! :)

I think it may, Tammy. I haven't been running the AC because of $$, but we've had a pretty good summer so far. Only 1 or 2 days of 100 degree weather with 105 heat index. Fall is my favorite time, so maybe our muses will come back with great stories to tell & inspiration in our souvenir bags.

Aw Pam, maybe your muse is sleeping and that is why you can't!
I hope you are inspired today!

Oh Pam, I hope you've had some sleep *hugs* I can soooo relate to sleep deprivation.
I'm excited that you are going to expand the Candy's Heart line!!! Like i said before, my hubby loves the necklace when I wear it!
sending you sleepy dust from my stash...I've been sleeping okay lately so I can spare some.

LOL, thanks Care. I got a little sleep last night, after a couple of glasses of wine. I try not to do that often, but I just really needed some sleep, even though it wasn't great sleep.

I need to get a neck model, but I'll have the photos up soon.
