End of an era - well that sounds rather dramatic....

"Life is what happens to you, while you're busy making other plans" John Lennon 

My year of study has come to an end. It happened over a month ago, but this is the first chance I've had to blog -  I've been filling  my time with other creative endeavours...........Hmmm, I wish.......I've actually been catching up on the housework, but it does make me somewhat happy to have a clean kitchen floor and a tidy linen closet ;)
I'm still waiting for my Cert 2 in Jewellery Manufacture to arrive in the mail. I've passed but I've been told not to hold my breath for the actual certificate to arrive. In the meantime I've done nothing creative! Despite my smug attitude about my kitchen floor and the sparkling bathroom tiles (did I mention the sparkling bathroom tiles?)  I thought that with the extra free day each week now the course has finished, that I'd be churning out magnificent jewellery creations, but no.....  it's pretty much been housework and the occasional half decent meal every now and then!
I still have my copper pipe trinket box to finish. It's probably only a half hour or so of work  to get to the clean up stage but the weather's hotting up here in Perth and soldering out in the tin shed isn't that appealing at the mo. And of course it's the "season to be merry" and lots of shopping, wrapping, decorating of trees, socialising and prep to do before Christmas. Yeah,  I know.....excuses, excuses!

To be continued.................

All in good time. You'll get back to it, just enjoy this time for what it is...A break. Have a good Christmas, the pressure's off. As much as I think a piece of paper is useless, you may need it in the future, so make sure that certificate is on it's way.
