Mr Snuggles & New Beads…

Ok, I know its been forever, but there is so much to do & so little time to do it in, its been almost two weeks since I came back from my trip to Turkey & the things of have done a lot of are, spend time with hubby,   sleep, be at the studio making beads & getting ready to go on holiday…but the one thing I have done the most is snuggle Mr. Snuggles…the newest member of our family…

You see sadly our beloved Sammy the best hamster ever who came to America with us from England passed away a week before I went to Turkey for my class, he had a stroke at the ripe old age of 3 & died in my hands…we were heartbroken, he had seen us through a lot of good & tough times…needless to say my trip to Turkey & my time there teaching was all overshadowed by the loss of Sammy…he is in hamster heaven now…both hubby & I cried for some time & still do a bit here & there…
However life must go on & so does loving small critters…

Enter Mr. Snuggles…he is a baby Guinea Pig…unlike Sammy, he loves & needs to be held & he is constantly talking…so I guess I am finding out what it may be like to have a baby who needs to be held all the time…I have been looking for a friend for him, I was not able to find another Guinea Pig yet, I am surprised that they did not have him with a friend for sale, as many Guinea Pigs need companions & are sold in pairs…so guess who he is bonded with? he is even jealous of hubby when I pay any attention to him while Mr. Snuggles in on my lap…

In other news, I have new beads, Listed many on my etsy shop, will list more in the coming days…photo below…

Last Friday we had our Monthly Get Together at the Studio check out the photos & the story of the fun had by all….be sure to stop by Grace’s etsy shop & check out the much sought after new mashers that Frank has been making, I love love all of them…

On Sunday I had 2 lovely students Wendy & Gloria in my beginning lampworking class, I can tell they are both going to be great bead makers & I am glad to report they are both Glass Addicts already…I have another student Amber coming in on Tuesday…I love my job & getting a chance to meet all these lovely people…

Mel P. wins the yummy vessel from last week…for this week I have a yummy encased dichro background pink flower focal bead…I love the way it came out, its about 20mm long & made in to a pendant with silver I bought in Turkey…enter to win it by making a comment on this post…
I am sure there is more that to talk about like two very good movies we saw this past week, Knight & Day, a great fun movie & Grown Ups, another fun movie…
Thanks for stopping by…life is very good…
