c on f e s s i o n s

Last night I came home from work and ate dinner in bed.
In front of the TV...

That's where it lives until we get 
the living room sorted out... 
(and let me tell you that I am so 
against having a TV in the bedroom)

I think it's the perfect way to get less sleep and less romance!

So I laid bed, munching on a burrito.
(I felt guilty but amazing at all once ha ha)

I glanced at some shows and started to get tired.
I swear TV sucks the energy right out of me!!
So I had to escape and I ran and hid in my little makeshift studio.

Looking at the little copper discs I started last week.
Piling them all in the palm of my hand. 
Feeling the weight of the metal, the smooth backs and 
the textured front as I moved my fingers across the surface.
Feeling so incredible happy.

I am so blessed in so many ways.
I truly love what I do in the studio.
It's an extension of me.
I look at my work and I see the eclectic, crazy
whirlwind that is me. And it feels good.

I almost finished the first pair of soul windows... :o)

Now I am trying to decide if I should wait to list 
this pair until the rest is finish... or?
Mmmm... I'm going to take another sip of my fantastic 
coffee and then get going with the rest of my day.

Thank you for dropping by.
BTW you look smashing today!


  1. I think they will be gorgeous Tess!

    And yes, I m too against having a TV in the bedroom!

  2. That copper is so pretty! Can't wait to see...

  3. Tv is a suck but it sounds like your current sitch is like the motel life which can be fun sometimes. It's hard to make a house a home so fast, it takes time.

    Your new work is pretty and intriguing, pretty intriguing, can't wait to see the finished pieces.

  4. Ohh loving them Tess I was wondering where you were going lol!!

  5. No TV here in the bedroom, although sometimes I am tempted:) The earrings are looking cool!!


I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
Please forgive me if I don't respond personally to you.
I always try but sometimes time just flies away!
love ~tess
