Rest assured, I am alive and doing quite well! Here’s what’s been keeping me away from the blogging world:
– A new job: In June, I started working nearly full time at a local non-profit organization, EPIC. I’m the client services director at this pregnancy information clinic. This new job is keeping me quite busy, but it has also been quite rewarding!
In addition, I’ve started teaching science classes to a group of home-school students in our area. I am LOVING working with my students and sharing my passion for science with them! It’s priceless to work with such a great group who are so excited about learning and experimenting!
– Pregnancy: Shortly after starting my new job, my husband and I found out that we’re expecting our first child! We’re THRILLED about this new adventure in our lives! Pregnancy has slowed me down a bit – it is helping me to prioritize and set more realistic goals for myself. I can’t wait to meet my little one – only a few months left!! – and I look forward to seeing how being a mommy will help me to learn and grow!
– Creating and selling jewelry: Yes, I still do this! Over the past few months, I’ve focused mainly on custom orders and selling at home shows. Making jewelry is still a passion, and I plan to pursue it and continue to add to my skill set in the future!
Stay tuned for a little preview of what’s in store for KaraAnnisJewelry in 2011… And I’ll have a little more opportunity to plug into the blogging world in the months to come!
