*sigh*... can you hear and feel the effects of that big cleansing breath I just took? Yeah, I think I have done that more then a few times this weekend. Stop... take a deep breath... let it out... and *sigh*
I decided not to post on Friday. I think I was still in a nasty mood and I was sick of sharing my misery. You don't come here to listen to me b----- and moan about nonsense. I ended up spending most of Friday with my Mom and even she could see the absolute drainage of my spirit. She could see I needed more then just a break from my usual "work". She and my Dad took the kids off Ron and my's hands for the weekend. WHAT A BRILLIANT IDEA!! The kids got to get away from the grumpy Mom and spend the weekend scootering in the basement, making toasted marshmallow in the fireplace and otherwise relaxing. It gave me a chance to hang out with my hubby (renting movies and getting dollar store boxes of movie style candy), and I didn't have any of the added stresses that come with 3 active kids. It was such a much needed reprieve... THANKS MOM!!
In my free time, I let loose at the torch too. I did a lot of experimenting this weekend and I wasted A LOT of glass, lol. You should see the pile of beads that were made and didn't get put in the kiln. And I am telling you this with gitty excitement! I think I am on to some cool new things!! Above is a photo of one of the new experiments. These are some tapestry style beads inspired by a fantastic fabric find from last week. I just finished up a post for Watch Me Create about these and their process. I am not sure when it'll be posted, but keep an eye out for it. They proved to be harder then I thought.
You'll have to come back to tomorrow to see what else I worked on...
