Mondays are for earrings

Mondays are for earrings

I've been participating in a challenge on Instagram. Every Monday this year, I make a pair of earrings and post a picture of them on Instagram using the tags #52earrings2018 and and #2018earringchallenge. I've made some great earrings but I haven't added them to the shop until now because I've been researching how to take better photos.

And they are much better! I'll be going through the shop and redoing all the photos over the next few weeks so they all look this good!

Sadly, I haven't been making jewelry other than on Mondays for a variety of reasons. I wanted to apply for a couple of shows, and I needed a booth photo for the application, which meant I had to put together a booth and photograph it, and it had to look good. So I designed it from the ground up, got everything I needed, did some sewing, put everything together, took photos, looked at the photos, realized I wanted to change some things, changed some things, took more photos, looked at the photos, decided on a good one, took the booth apart and packed it up, and applied to the shows. So that's done! (Wish me luck!)

And I think I might have chronic fatigue syndrome. Because if I don't, I definitely have fatigue that's chronic. It's hard to get a whole lot done when you sleep 12 hours a night and take a 3 hour nap most afternoons. I have a doctor's appointment next month, and I'm hoping I can get to the bottom of things. (If you have chronic fatigue syndrome, if you have any hints on how to, well, function, please share!)
