Today turned into one of those running-around-like-chicken-with-its-head-cut-off kind of days. Between sleeping late, needing to be up early for tutoring, a 9:00am doctors appointment, Ron home sick from work, Lauren at a friend's house, a spur of the moment phone call from my editor, and little Rusty needing his shots... I didn't know if I was coming or going. Things have finally slowed down to a point where I can get back to what *I* had planned for the day.
What's my plan?
I streamed Christmas music in my studio yesterday while snuggling up with my torch. I am thrill with what the kiln was holding this morning. And I am headed back into the studio to make more. I am giving you a little teaser of some of the new beads you'll see in next week's Bead Box update. A few beads inspired by the Wood Grain plate I showed you in yesterday's post. A few long tubular beads... that have never been available on my site before (how cool is that!). I revisited some "cube" designs with my famous square dots. And yeah, even a big toggle style bead (or two... or three). Oh and there are Mod Dots in there too. All the colors are ivory, intense black, turquoise and persimmon. Not very Christmasy, I know... you all know that I am not a holiday theme bead maker anyway.
It is shaping up to be one heck of an update if I stay on the roll I am on!!
