Blog Move & Update

Dear bloggy followers,
I Just moved my blogger blog over to Word Press. Needed a change of venue. My art career has been on a hiatus for awhile. I just did a long distance move from cold Upstate NY all the way to the opposite extreme of sunny Florida! I grew up in Florida so this has always been home. Lots of perks to moving back South including being close to most of my family, in-laws and BFF’s. Most are within the vicinity. I do terribly miss my adorable niece and nephew, brother and sister-in-law who are still in NY as well as my unborn nephew and his parents in Washington. Life took some major twists and turns in the last 6 months. We sold our first home in 3 months which was nothing short of a miracle, we lost 2 cats, I lived away from my sweet baby girl and hubby for almost 2 months during this process, we lived with my in-laws for a few months until we got a rental. Quite a long process and I’m glad that it’s over and we’re starting to get some normalcy. Before that craziness we were busy getting our house up to par to sell. It’s been a nutty year. We have been blessed to live in a wonderful city and have an amazing rental house. My studio is almost set to go and then I can create!! I think the last time I created something was in January 2010! Too long to not be creative!
Here’s a few things I did within the last 24 hours as far as anything artsy goes:
I reopened my Etsy shop – Still working on inventory for my ArtFire shop, may just keep that on hold.
I opened a Red Bubble Shop – I sold 8 cards today too!
I started my new/old blog here on WordPress
Onward and upward! I hope you continue to follow me here. :) Please change your links for me. Thank you. You can also find my FB fan page Mazerdesign.
I’ll leave you with my favorite art quote:
“Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.”
~Andre Gide – French critic, essayist, & novelist (1869 – 1951)

I haven't blogged since August?? Crazy! I'm sorry, my life has been insane. I am now officially moved to FL but still waiting to get in our own place. My life is scattered right now. Waiting for some normalcy while living with the in laws. Grateful to them but ready to move on. Anyways more about all of that later. I'm blogging about a fabulous giveaway on Allen Designs. I love her art and I'm a proud owner of one of her clocks for my studio! Check it out! You could win a $100 shopping spree!!

Stop by her blog and show her some love!

Hope everyone in the US has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It's official!

We're on our way! Well not literally yet.

I'm sure you've noticed the sound of crickets here on my blog for quite some time. I've missed blogging but haven't had much to say or share for a long while. My studio has been packed up for months! Well we have been diligently working on fixing up/staging our house to get it on the market. Today was the day it was officially listed. Nervous? A bit. Excited? Yes! We're moving back to sunny Florida and we are super excited! We've lived in Upstate NY for the last 6 years but things changed rapidly for us. Most of my family up and left town and either moved to Seattle, WA or various places in FL within the last 4 months. I have one sibling who will still be in the area with his family and it's going to be so strange for us all to be missing. I am sad to leave them and my sweet niece and nephew. Getting together is going to require much coordination on all ends once we're all in our new places.

Change can be good but it's also been hard. Hard to leave loved ones and hard to say goodbye to friends. NY was a fun ride while it lasted. I watched my brothers get married, I learned how to ride a motorcycle, have my license, owned my own bike, have traveled to NYC numerous times on whims, bought our first house, had a baby, became an aunt, found my passion in art and even exhibited locally and in NYC, made new friends, enjoyed seasons and so much more. I will NOT miss slush, snow, taxes, our dinky little mall, the crazy Quebec drivers, the lack of healthy restaurants. I know we were hear for the right season and we're moving on to a new one. Pray for us on this new journey, wish us luck as well. When we're all settled again I will FINALLY unpack my studio and begin creating again! I miss it!!!

Happy Earth Day!

I made a bunch of jewelry last night with earthy themes. I do try and reuse old broken jewelry parts when I can. There was definitely a color theme last night, blue and green and I didn't even realize today was Earth Day till this morning. I know I'm bad with dates. Today is my brother Nathan's birthday, wish I could see him he just recently moved all the way to the west coast! Happy birthday Nate!

On a side note I will be offering some eco-wallets and bags in my shop soon made by my lovely Mama. These are so cool and I've been using my wallet for about a year now and I still get compliments every where I go. Look for them soon!

These are my latest offerings and remember this is jewelry with a purpose of helping others in need.
