How many addictions can one person have?

Ok.. so mine are fairly calm… Although I might run a few people off the road trying to get to a bead store, or a rock shop… but hey I’m not driving drunk.

I’ve been composing a bracelet in my head for a few days.  On some sort of whim I bought root beer, smoked topaz, and powder almond beads.  For those who know me, I’m not a huge fan of brown…unless its mud splashed all over my truck, because I just drove through a huge mud puddle.  So I’m working up these browns, and I have a design I like, and then I added to it… and now I can’t figure out how to add a clasp.  Or what kind of clasp to add…. so I have this beautiful band… unable to be worn… with threads hanging out and I NEED to finish it.  But how?  So it’ll be another day while I work it out in my head.

In other news… my other addiction… feeding this blog.  After I finish one post, I’m ready to post another… even when I have nothing to post about.  Given that February was the first full month I was really promoting my blog and my Etsy shop, I was looking at the numbers….   The readership is steadily growing.  I had 509 views in January, I was hoping to meet that in February.  It was getting close, I was kind of worried, watching the numbers… can I really meet my goal… then bam…. 509 was passed… Hmmm, the way this is going I wonder if I can have 100 more views.  Yep, had 100, maybe 200?  Ok, not quite 200… topped out at 688, just 21 shy.  Not bad.  So, thank you everyone for reading, and surpassing my goals.

Don’t forget, next friday, I should have happily polished rocks for new jewelry, so check back.
