Mmm, what happened here then? - Oh and Happy St. David's Day!

It was neglected, that's what!

It has been over a year since I've updated my blog.  I was going to be so organised!
Obviously, it never happened.  Life took over once more.
I'd set up a lot of draft posts, but was trying to use technology and failed (it got the better of me, and I lost patience).
Roll back one year, and I was trying to tell everyone of my Caribbean and American adventures.  I had a seven day island hopping cruise, and lots and lots of pictures - mainly of sunny places, but I was working on an app on a tablet, and hit the problem that I couldn't for the life of me upload photographs through the app to the blog post.
So I didn't update it - simples! 
Instead I deleted the app off the tablet - not a good move I know now - and proceeded to neglect my blog. 😒

Then proceeded to neglect my website. 😬
Then my Folksy shop.  😳
I carried on listing and selling in my Etsy shop though.

 The summer saw me spending several weeks running the local Splashpark. I'll open up the Folksy shop in September I thought.
September came and went - I was in Italy - Florence, Venice and Rome

October arrived - I was in France.

November - too busy with Christmas making and markets.
I walked up there!
Oh, and I was fortunate to be asked to place some goods in  the newly opened Pier Road Coffee and Arts, in Littlehampton. (They have a Facebook page here if you'd like to take a little tour - and I know they would be thrilled if you'd pop along and like their page too, or call in if you are in the area!)

December - Yes, I was away again, and in between times stocking my Etsy shop and making new things.
January, well that was taken up with getting myself organised, making sure everything was up to date for the dreaded tax return (yes, I know, last minute again! But I'm on top of it now.).

Off to see the Pope! St Peter's, Rome
And so we come full circle - February once more (yes, I do know it's the last day) and yes I do know tomorrow is March 1st (it's a date that's difficult to forget if you are Welsh!) BUT I have achieved several goals this month.
I have added more to my Etsy shop; updated my very neglected website; and reopened my Folksy shop.  I still have a huge amount to do, but I am feeling more focused, and determined.

The aim is to update here more regularly (we'll see - only time will tell).  I guess it should be easy, as I have loads of photographs I can share (even if some are over a year old).  But in the meanwhile, I'll continue with my Instagramming; Facebooking; Websiting; Twittering and blogging as well as my making of glassy stuff in the hope that my audience doesn't get fed up.
It'll probably be a bit random for a while, but I'll get there eventually.

If you'd like to contact me - feel free - you can find me on the various social media platforms (as @DragonArtGlass or @DragonArtGlassStudio ) that's where I seem to post mostly, but like Arnie - "I'll be back" ...just not sure when.
