Well, 2011 has been busy for me so far.  So much so that I haven't had the chance to sit down and create yet at all!  I did however sit down with my tools and supplies and re-organize them.  Things had begun to get a bit chaotic with bits and pieces of ideas scattered, well, everywhere.  So now, things are re-organized.  I stopped by my local craft shop a week or so ago and loaded up on some new tools and more beads that I thought were lovely.  I ventured into gemstone territory and picked up some amazonite and I'm very excited to start working with it. 
I have been saving up several small projects that need jewelry glue applied to them.  It of course says to use it in a well ventilated area - which I do not really have.  And with my two very young daughters in the house I thought it'd be best to heed their warning.  Today finally the sun is shining in the Pacific Northwest, so I think when my hubby arrives home this afternoon I will either a) open the windows to let some crisp fresh air inside and glue my projects or b) take my projects out on to the balcony - for which I may need to bundle up a bit.  (It may be sunny, but it's still chilly!)
Hopefully by this time tomorrow I will have several new items ready to list for sale!  I have not worked much with this glue so have not found the best way to apply it without using too hopefully I'll get that figured out without gluing my fingers together.  That would be a sticky situation!
