my week with instagram...

 I haven't been posting as often recently...
and I have missed it.


 Especially recapping my week in photos...
with my iphone...so quick and gratifying.
I invested in a new camera recently
which of course came with a learning curve...
I have been trying to ween myself off the ease of depending solely on my iphone
(yea, it falls under the old dogs... new tricks clause).


Another reason I have been almost absent from posting...
working on my real, grown up accessory collection.
I realized I was putting off working on it daily,
to instead get my creative fix through blogging...


Afterwards...
 only to retreat into the pond I keep 
for my dips into self loathing...for non accomplishment
(I actually have a whole list of reasons I have kept to use the pond...
yep, therapy for me has been a good thing...
a really good thing.
(I never knew when I started this little instagram post it would turn to be so revealing????)



 So this month I have purposely backed off on blogging...


 to set up and maintain some sort of regular design schedule.


 and...


 I am excited to say...
after months and months in the process...


 I can finally 'see' how the collection will all work together...
and be able to incorporate my all my concepts 
into one collection.


 It has taken working with my therapist/life coach....
While I have been circling around avoiding any real progress
 because I was on 
overwhelm auto pilot...
and explained such to said therapist/life coach...

his advice...

start with one piece...

(pretty obvious I know...but circling real fast around and around on overwhelm auto pilot-
 clarity is  the first to go)

I took his advice...



Wishing you much love and joy
as you style your life


and as always, 
thanks so much for stopping by

  1. First, I must say those bracelets in the last photo are simply beautiful!! And I love shells... have I ever told you that I collect shells? Have since I was a girl. They are so amazing.

    Thank you so much for sharing what you are learning, Tamera. It encourages me so much. I'm glad you are finding a way to balance everything out and accomplish the things you want to do.

    I have dipped into the pond of loathing, too. I believe we have a very real enemy that wants us there... wants to accuse us and destroy us. But there is a God who loves us so much and is ready to help us overcome.

  2. We do miss your posting. And if blame is part of the game, I blame you. For causing me to lust after your magnificent designs. For causing me to fall in love with baubles and beads and hanging things. For making me seriously question why I am studying Health Information when jewelry is soooo much more beautiful and fulfilling. And from what I gather, there are no tests. Or wrong answers. Or crazy teachers. Yes, I think I just want more of what you have. Please.
