I'll be busy filling the shop over the next two weeks as we head into the big gift buying season of the year. If you're interested in a custom piece, last day for custom orders for 2014 will be November 15 and my Etsy shop will close for Christmas December 18 - 26.

A new variation in my Framed Shapes.

New Convertible earrings - each component is two sided.

The post in which I try not to be too whiny

A month and half is certainly a long time to have neglected a blog, even for me.

I don't think everyone needs to homeschool their children - I am not a homeschool die hard with no regard for public education. I just think that if one decides to homeschool, they should really give it their all. It is people's education on the line!

And so that is where I've been lately, submerged in Algebra II and astronomy and ancient history and creating schedules and "mom, the page is missing from this book you just paid $75 for" and so on...

We got out for a much needed field trip to The Walter's Museum last week. 
It might be a little unpopular these days to admit that I sacrifice my work for my kids but thats whats been going on here lately. At the same time I don't want to sound like some kind of haughty, homeschooling martyr because often it brings me to tears actually, the wanting to be in the studio instead of reviewing grammar exercises…and then the guilt for wanting to be in the studio instead of reviewing grammar exercises. But I think we've rounded a corner in regard to scheduling,  for his year anyway, as I hone my time management skills.

Thanks for listening. The whining if now officially OVER!

Remember that when time gets tight for me, you can still find quick posts on Facebook, inspiration on Pinterest and most recently I've really started to enjoy Instagram (@gwilliamson) where I post images of life and field trips and work progress.

I have some work going into the Etsy shop this week including mini dot earrings.
