OK, my last blog post was back in February. That was like over 8 months ago… But I say I have good reasons for this prolonged absence. They are (drum roll please…): a new job and a move back to the States. Yep, that’s right — I and my shop are now in the Steel City: Pittsburgh, PA. To say the last few months have been hectic would be a gross understatement. I am in a constant state of amazement — how one’s life can take a new course when one least expects it, how strange it is to live far away from family again, and just how much stuff I have (a huge portion of it would be, of course, bead supplies…). Anyway, now that I and my beads are all settled and unpacked, my shop is operational once again. And, if you’re in the US, this new location means spiffy fast delivery! I have a few new things to list too, so please check later. And one last time — woo hoo, Pittsburgh! Maybe I will even come to love this city as much as I love Philly. Time will tell…
