Yes, I'm still as busy as a bee! It seems the 'fine art' part of me has overtaken my beading passion. Not necessarily by choice, but I'm not complaining either. You see, unbeknownst to me, my oldest brother posted a link to my papercutting blog on his facebook page one evening. When I woke up the next morning, my inbox was flooded with orders and the messages were coming in faster than I could answer them. Some want their orders filled by Christmas, while others are willing to wait. I enjoy cutting and find it to be very relaxing. Like jewelry making, there is always a wonderful sense of instant gratification no matter where I am in my piece. I simply pick up a piece of paper and begin to cut. The cutting evolves as my thought process is interpreted into positive and negative spaces. I love it. It is soothing to my soul. For now I am happy and content snipping my clean floor into a scattered mess of snippets!

Is there something I can snip for you?
