Etsy Treasury – silver crowns and brave knights

That could have been from me. But it is not!

It’s a treasury on Etsy from another friend of the medieval:

Hit two fish with one stone

Fisch am Freitag goes Drawing Challange

This Saturday Miss Herzfrisch invited to fish.
And because this goes so well with Andiva’s fish on Friday, I made an extra collage.

Feedback – a picture thank you from Cambr >

I thought that you might like a picture of the beautiful ring that you made me, along with Sarah’s ring:

We have thousands of photos, but not enough time to sort them!

Thank you again

Doesn’t the dress look wonderful with the rings??
It is an unusual couple for Germany. And I have to tell you that I worked the men’s ring – I prefer to leave such a ring to a jeweler’s goldsmith.

This joy is my favorite reward. Thank you very much!

Discovered: Tam on Willowing and the Live Book 2015

Yesterday I found the inspiring exclamation on a blog: "I am participating in the Live Book 2015."

I was curious about this wonderful website fromTamara Laporte:

Tam has gathered 22 art teachers and designed an online course for a whole year.
Not only does this sound promising, it also looks wonderful.

In this video you can admire one of these life books.

You can also find small courses and creative suggestions on your website.

So what are you still doing here?

Here is a list of all teachers! With the dates, when there is a giveaway for one Course place gives:

Mokumé Gane wedding rings thorned

It is not my preferred way to work Mokumé Gane wedding rings. But at the customer’s request, I also thorn the metal.
This creates seamless rings with all-round patterns without soldering.

Seamless infinity, so to speak. These pictures are always romantic. Or?

The Mokumé Gane strand separated, one recognizes now the wedding ring shape.

That was once the Mokumé Gane block – but there is still a lot of work to do before the wedding ring is finished.

And that’s how the finished rings look. The much forging and annealing was worth it!

Movie quote – Phenomenon

How to start again after a blog break?

It happened quickly. Sometimes it’s your own intention.
The blog lies idle for days and then for weeks.
It’s not that easy to start blogging again after such a long break.

Anyway, I have this problem right now.

So I wrote down a few considerations. And would like to share this with you right away.
Welcome to my self-motivation.

1. Time doesn’t matter

Do not wait for the best time or a special date. It is better to just start again now.
Time is precious on the fast moving internet. Waiting and hesitation only wastes further unused opportunities. (and this article was now unused for a week in the drafts)

Researchers say that it takes an average of 14-21 days for a new habit to develop into a habit. Conversely, during the blog break we decided to do that "non-blogging" used.
It’s time to change that. With a first step.

Summer time is festival time

2. Please never apologize

This is Rule No. 6 by Leroy Jethro Gibbs in Navy CIS.
I like rule 16 even better: Do not make excuses, but results!
The fact is, no one wants to read long woes in a blog.
Your life was exciting, sad, sick? For a while it was more important than your virtual diary. And that’s the way it should be, or?
Now you have space for the blog again?
This is a reason to be happy, not a bereavement. Greet your readers like the good loyal guests they are. Entertain them.

3. Less is more

You have experienced a lot? Great, then you can tell a lot soon.
Now only give a brief overview. The danger in Write getting bogged down in the first article, trying to make it too long and too perfect, is great. Do not overwhelm yourself or your readers.
Metaphorically speaking; make a collage. (or more like me)

Many wedding rings and a new collection have been created

4. It always works better

Use your break! Now is a good opportunity to have your blog scientifically analyzed at a distance.

What worked well, what inhibited you?
Is there anything you’d rather do on your blog??
What do your readers like?

Take some time and take notes on such questions. So that you didn’t forget them later.
