Winter Blahs

Feb 23 2009

                                                                 I've got a serious case of the winter blahs.   3 snowstorms in 5 days and still another 4-6 weeks of winter left before spring finally gets here.   In NH, we have a joke - 9 months of winter and 3 months of summer.  That also goes for road contruction - it never ends, just takes a break for a month or so in the winter.

Remember the flower pin posted in a previous blog?  I decided to go flower crazy, and made another flower brooch, and then proceeded to make a new series of flower earrings with coiled stems, which is completely new for me.   I just need to have a little springtime to remind myself it'll get warm soon.   I finally posted some of my welded hedgie birds on my webstore, and also on    If you want to check out my work on Etsy, my seller name is spoonlady so come and visit my Etsy store.

I also ended up on Facebook, so you can go to my Joy Raskin page if you are a Facebook member.   I sort of got sucked into it thanks to my college alumni "connection" who had to set up a new RISD page for all the RISD alumni.  For those of you who don't know, RISD is Rhode Island School of Design and I'm a jewelry/metal graduate, '90.  That was over 20 years ago!

Enough of my ramblings and let's hope spring come soon!
