So, what’s new?

Just when you think life couldn’t get busier, it always seems to do it. The last couple of weeks have been so packed full of events and tasks I haven’t had a chance to just sit and relax, let alone update my blog or websites.

There are a lot of really good things going on just now. I am very excited about a few of them in particular. The guild is growing quickly and we have a lot of interest. I have met some wonderful people that have jumped right in and are helping out. I never knew that starting this thing was going to be such a large task, but it has been and what a fun ride it has been so far.  We have held two meetings here in the Akron area and our first Columbus meeting is this Wednesday night. I am excited to meet up with some of my friends down there and meet other new people as well.

It looks like we (the guild) will be doing a book fair with Barnes and Noble to help raise funds for a literacy organization called First Book. I will post more information about that soon. There is a lot that still has to be worked out, but it all has to be submitted by next week, so I really will have information soon.

I have been working with both Beads ‘N More and Embellish to work on my class schedule. I have my classes now booked with them through June. I will finish up my Norton Schedule here soon and will post all three months classes here and on my website. (www.melissamuir.com)

Some of the classes I have scheduled is Filigree, Wire Wrapping, Resin and textured metals. Here are some of the pictures of the various classes I am currently working on.

I received an order from a friend this past week for one of my angels and this is what I came up with for her. I hope she likes it.

March 2009 Class Schedule

Sorry it took so long to get this posted. Things have been really busy. The guild is up and running and boy is it taking off. I have set up a forum for the guild, although there is very little traffic there just now. I am hoping to get more people using it soon. It all just takes a little bit of time.

I haven’t had any time to make any jewelry in such a long time. I am hoping to change that this week. I really need to get into the studio. I am certainly having withdrawals.

I have a lot of really fun classes scheduled this month. To see the full class descriptions and project images please check out my website: www.melissamuir.com/classes.htm

I hope to post more soon.
