Where Has Time Gone?

I can’t believe that we are quickly approaching the end of August. School is back in for the Fall semester, Halloween is right around the corner, and before we know it, the 2022 holiday season will be upon us.

For those of you that know me personally, you know that the first part of 2022 has been a whirlwind for me. I have had many plans for mmillsdesigns that I have had to put on hold because I have not had the energy, both physically and mentally, to do what I want to do on any given day. I have been very disappointed in myself, feeling like I make promises that I can’t keep in wanting to move my business forward and continue to create new jewelry for my customers.

Luckily all of that is changing, and I am happy to say things are looking up; I am turning a corner and have been working on a few projects over the last few weeks. I have not caught up with listing new jewelry on my website, so for now, I will be posting pictures on my Facebook and Instagram pages. If I do not post a price, please contact me, and I will gladly give you a price on any item.

Here is a quick preview below of a few items that are currently available to purchase; more to come! 🙂

March 30th: New Jewelry Listed in My Shop

I just finished listing all of the jewelry I made last week in my mmillsdesigns Shop!

Yesterday I started working on a revision of my website. I haven’t been happy with how my catalog was displaying, so I am using a new theme. So far, I am pleased with it, but let me know what you think and if you have suggestions for me.

This week is hectic for me as I only have one day where I don’t have any appointments, and that day is tomorrow. I plan to spend some decent time in the studio tomorrow, coming up with a few new ideas, and working on new pieces.

If you have any questions, please email me directly at mary@mmillsdesigns.com or fill out the Contact Me form on this website.

See you soon! 💕

March 18th: Update & New Jewelry

Hello! I realize that I have been gone from my studio for a while now, but my absence could not be avoided. Soon after my last post in February, I hurt my back. I have had issues with my sciatic nerve in the past, but that was years ago, so it was quite a surprise when it flared up after so long. About two weeks after the initial pain started, my back was better, thanks to a lot of rest and avoiding sitting in my studio chair where I have to sit up straight. Once my back was better, I worked on a few custom orders that I needed to get done and shipped out.

A few days later, I had a follow-up appointment with my surgeon, and it was determined that I needed surgery to fix an issue from a surgery I had back in November 2019. For those who have not noticed the links connecting you to my other blog, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in late February 2019. Two weeks ago today, I had my 5th surgery, and I am doing well! I am excited to see my surgeon again next week to remove any stubborn steri-strips that are still hanging on to my surgery site.

Today I finally felt well enough to get back into my studio and design a few pieces. It felt so good to be able to sit for a few hours and do what I love! I hope to work on a few more pieces tomorrow, and then I will list them in my online shop.

Thank you for your understanding and support! 💕
