MIA from the blogging world

I've been MIA (missing in action) from the blogging world again! You would think given hubby's return and my release from farming duties I'd be back in the swing of things. Far from it though.

Hubby has been busy with rock picking, cutting hay and now sowing and I feel like I've not quite got away from the paddock - even if it's just keeping him company. As well, there have been further incidents of farming jobs that involved me - such as the whole family going rock picking for a day last weekend. The kids coped remarkably well with manual labour - maybe they're not as soft as I thought!

Perhaps I need to have a guest blogger on hand to keep everyone entertained in such absences. Have you ever had a guest blogger on your blog? Or perhaps you've been one? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

I've seen guest bloggers occasionally but haven't really taken much notice. Then two blogs I check in on regularly have been talking about them. Your Cheeky Monkey had a guest blogger to talk about photographing children. As Monique's blog is connected to her business which caters to a lot of children products this is perfect! The other blog was the Business Mums Blog that was talking about the pros for both the blog and the guest blogger. Food for thought for when we're too caught up with other things?

Naturally, with everything else keeping me busy, not much has happened on the jewellery front. I've been busy with orders and remodelling jobs so I've only had time for a couple of new pieces. The necklace pictured above is one of the new ones - lava, freshwater 'stick' pearls in a natural pink / lavender tint and sterling silver. (I must apologise for the bluish tint in the photo - the light was a little past optimum.)

I have visitors arriving from the US this Friday for a short stay and in my mad dash around the house in cleaning mode, I tidied up my bench....so that's ruined any creativity until I can mess it up again. LOL.

Till next
Annette :)

I don't think you need a guest blogger. We can wait for you.

Happy Rock Picking, whatever that is.

Hi Anette
Thank you for your kind words.
I love the texture of the lava rock with the pink pearls. They just seem to harmonise quite well!

Enjoy your visitors.

I agree with Chezchani. We'll wait for you.
The necklace is beautiful, Annette. I love the combination.

Have fun with your visitors.

Love the mix of lava and fresh water pearls--unexpected and lovely, with a bit of sass! Nice work. I am in your blog ring at Creative Bloggers, so thought I'd stop by and say Hi.

I never have had a guest blogger, but I've been considering it, too. I've visited some of my fellow writers' blogs who have had authors guest post and it's always interesting reading.

After letting my Guest Blogger loose twice, I'm still trying to recover. He's now developed a loyal following of fans by proxy & there's no living with him & his big head. Don't do it Annette - you will permanently scarred from the experience!!!
