Mother’s Day Blues & New Beads…

Hope you had a great Mother’s day…we missed seeing all of our mom’s today…for one thing I have been sick since our last adventure this past Mon to Wed to Los Vegas…Hubby had some work to do, I went along for some fun…my sister reminds me that if I listened to her I would not get sick every time I fly…something about airborn….I did call all the mom’s however & made plans to make it up to them…
oh yeah trip to sin city was fun, we stayed at the brand new very modern Aria Resort & Hotel with views of the strip…

I did had some fun making some beads before we left, below is the group shot of what I am listing by 7pm Monday night 5/10/10 in my etsy shop…check them out…already listed few of the Tempest Rain beads, the Bird Nest, the Lady Bug, Flower implosion & I forget but there is more…

A few of the beads I made this week have my brand new, possibly someday for sale, yummy frit which I call Tempest Rain…oh what a fun she is…the lucky students in my class in Turkey will all get a bag of this yummy frit among other goodies, don’t forget the dates are May 30 to June 12, Glass Furnace…I will be teaching two 5 day classes…each will be filled with a ton of new information & detailed design ideas for making yummy glass beads…I wish I had been able to take this class a few years ago when I was just new at bead making…well enough about how great this class is going to be, see you there…

Speaking of seeing you there, this coming Friday we will have our monthly get together MGT at Graceful Customs, make sure to go past the calander on the blog to see the post about this coming Friday…and yes its true Grace has been practising her bead making, she is doing, I dont know about my being patient however, I can be a real task master when it comes to teaching, but I am fun, or at least I have been told I am fun in class…anyway come join us for some fun at the torch, wire wrapping demo by Jen, fused glass groove maker demo by Grace & I will make a few vessels & blow some shards, you can play on a torch too, bring your art to show, share & sell…drawing for a gift at 6pm or so…oh yeah Frank is working on some yummy new tools too, come see the new Squeeze-Me-Right-Masher in action…it may not be sexy, but it works like a charm, plus sexy cost more money & this tool is functional, clean, small, nice to hold, great to mash with & did I mention at $28.00 its a steal…& yes its not sexy…IMHO.

Last week’s yummy pink focal goes to Penny…please send your address, also Nikki, I did not get your addy yet for the week before…for this week the giveaway is made of two beads, I was testing some new colors & frits with older ones…the results are very yummy, the cone is about 25mm long, the tab is about 23mm which I made with my brand new Frit, Tempest Rain…love them both, enter to win them by making a comment on this post…

Well as always I am sure there is more to tell, like how I am going crazy packing & getting ready for my big trip to Turkey…but will catch up later…

Thanks for stopping by…life is good, save for this nasty oil in the gulf business, my heart goes out to the planet & the animals & all the folks who live in the affected areas…I hope you all have a great week…

Peace
