I have taken a couple of days to do nothing....and it felt so good!! I actually bought some new novels by Elizabeth Peters (I think they were suggested by Barbara Becker Simon at the last conference) and they are nice little holidays for me as a armchair traveler! No airports, no shots, just relaxing.....
In between reading, I have been working on a new set of classes that when all the classes are strung together, they make a great necklace/bracelet set! I need to track down some strange supplies but I think it will be worth it.I am excited about making up the prototypes. I may offer up a couple of practice classes for the pieces to see how many days they each take. I think they will be great classes!
I have been also thinking about moving the studio around ....I thought I had a system that worked but it doesn't....so it may be going back to what it was before.....damn, it is a lot of work to move everything around.....but it does help to find things I have lost in there...I know I have a bag of rings somewhere in there that I haven't found in the two years I have been looking. I know it is in there somewhere! I have some new ideas for a series of rings that I have been thinking about since B&B, and it would be nice to see them against the older rings. I guess that is a new goal to reach for!
So, I am off to Target for boxes to store stuff in....maybe I will get organized before I die.....although I doubt it! and maybe I will stop by Lowe's for a torch or two.....woohoo! I hope you days in the studio are as fun for you as mine are.....or better..send some photos of your studios....maybe I will see something that would work for me! Have fun, Kelly
P.S. One of these photos is the inspiration for one of the new bead classes....can you guess which one??? and how??? and don't you love the storm cloud from the other night? the color was just beautiful!......have a great day! K.
