What's New from My Bench?

Hello there! I thought you might like to see the latest work coming off my bench, and some work-in-progress shots I took along the way. All of these pieces will be available in my shop later this week. Stay tuned for more photos to come!

Thank you for looking! :)

The Artists Synchroblog (May) – The Artists Synchroblog is a group of bloggers who post every other month on the same topic, sharing our experience or perspective. On alternate months we undertake a Pinterest Project where we each take inspiration from a pinterest picture, create something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then post about it.
I'm excited to have been accepted into The Artists Synchroblog group! May's Synchroblog topic is "WORDS HAVE MEANING." So we are all posting about words that have meaning to us. Maybe a favorite quote, some words of wisdom, a poem, something that speaks to you.
So, here's mine:
"She believed she could, so she did."

You've probably heard this one before. And it seems to be all over Pinterest and Etsy at the moment.
I like it. I like the possibilities it represents. I like that it reminds me to have more confidence in myself. It reminds me that I can accomplish what I set out to do. I can set goals and actually reach them — all things I really need to remember in my daily life, things I need to keep reminding myself.
Yes, I can do it if I try. I can make my small business successful. I can learn all kinds of cool, new metal and jewelry techniques. I can advance in my day-job. And yes, I can and will succeed in leading a more healthy lifestyle and eventually get to a healthy weight! I can even help inspire my family and friends to do the same! I need to remember that!
I hope you are inspired too! :)

Now, take a moment and visit the other bloggers and see their "words with meaning."
