It seems that lately I am behind on everything...my 9-5 job is really annoying me and cutting into my creative time! If I didn't have pesky expenses, like mortgage and that silly "eat food" habit, I would quit! In all seriousness, I think I signed up for too many things with deadlines...AJE Earring Challenge, AJE Component of the Month, Bead Soup Blog Hop, Focus on Life-52 photos, Challenge of Music...all challenges that motivate me to be more creative, but all require time, thought, and preparation. I will get there, I just need to plan ahead and stop procrastinating...remember my word of the year - Focus!
My "Focus on Life - 52 photos post for Week 7 was due this past Saturday. The prompt for the week was Beauty of Flowers. I love taking shots of my flowers I grow every year in my garden...not much there right now, however but dried out stuff waiting for new growth. Soon, though! Fortunately, my hubby is an orchid-lover, so there is always something blooming there.
And here is a shot of one of my African violets at work...they have been blooming almost non-stop since I got this fluorescent task light under my shelf!
This one inspired me to make these earrings...
They are today's post on Earrings-Everyday!
Speaking of earrings...my AJE Earring Challenge Reveal #3...I only got 1 pair finished for this reveal, so will catch up and make 2 for this week (she said)! Here is the pair that I did get posted...

There, I feel much better! A couple of things done. Now, I need to get my bead soup out the door to my partner. I'll be blogging about that soon and introduce you to my partner and show you this gorgeous soup she has sent me.
