Coming around and going around

Wow, I thought I'd try something different this week and list a set of beads that I totally loved. They were the most gorgeous complex dots in these delicious autumn colors. I thought they'd go like wildfire.
Guess what....nada bidda. No interest. So sad. I just love them and think they are some of the prettiest beads I've done in a long while. Oh well, live and learn.

If anybody's out there, I'd love to hear some feedback. What's wrong with those beads?
Speaking of something different...I reached out to this guy I used to know in HS today. We were just friends but, after viewing some pics from my HS reunion, I thought, what the 'H', I'll see what he's up to. I haven't talked to him in like, 10 years. It should be fun. I'll keep you updated on what happens. It'll be like a tela novela!
Or not.

Pura Vida

Back on Track

I'm back on the horse again, as it were. No more glum posts. The rainy weather is over and the October breezes have moved in. Perfect weather for opening up the studio and really getting my flame on. I've been working on focals lately and some dot beads. I like dots because they force you to really concentrate on the technical aspects of beadmaking; color reaction, size control, accuracy. If, as a bead lover, you think dot beads are simplistic, think again. They are one of the hardest kinds of bead to make, I can assure you.
Here's what I have listed on eBay this week:

My parents are here for the winter. Yay!
My daughter got moved out of her classroom at school and into a new class. The teacher/student ratio was over the legal limit, so they had to form a new class. Very hard on a nine year old to have to get booted out and start over from scratch after two months making friends and getting to know her new teacher. Booooo!
Well, speaking of Boo, I'll be working very hard and decorating my yard for the big Spooktacular that is my Halloween celebration. Can't wait. So fun!
Have a great day. (or week)

Sweet October

It's raining today, hence my presence here. Don't get me wrong, I love rainy weather. Love it, Love it, Love it.
Let me 'splain. I am a random free-thinker who doesn't particularly enjoy the company of other people. I sometimes don't even enjoy my own company. Rainy days provide me with the perfect excuse. Actually, they make it so I don't need an excuse at all. An excuse to stay inside, watching Lord of the Rings and 90's slacker movies and eating my kids prepackaged lunch box snack cakes. I don't have to feel guilty for missing out on 'Lunch with Girlfriends' or skipping that 4,000th trip to the park. It's perfectly acceptable to stay inside while pot roast bubbles in the crockpot and weeds visibly sprout taller in the flower beads.
I love rainy weather!

I did, however, in a burst of non-slackerism, clean off my work bench this week and make a couple of sets of beads and some new focals. Nice, stormy day activities.
Here's wishing you some lovely, soothing rain.
