Do you have it - that Christmas hangover? Where you can't seem to get anything done? You ate too much, maybe drank too much, maybe had too much fun, concentrating only on the holiday and how much more work it causes you, to the detriment of all your other chores and activities. And now, it's the day after, and you have to get back into life, start working again, mailing things, creating things, paying bills, laundry, and everything else? I have it! It makes my head fuzzy. I made some beads today, one set for a special order. She specifically asked for 3/32" mandrels to be used. You bet, I said, no problem! Guess how I made the beads? On a 1/16" mandrel. Good thing she doesn't need them tomorrow. Now, it's not like I can't sell the beads I really made for her. They turned out great, if I do say so myself, and I don't think they'll be that hard to sell. But that hangover thing made me stupid, and I have to make most of them all again tomorrow (at least I figured it out before my kiln was too full, and could get some of them done!).
I will be posting this week about a really cool trade I did with a really cool person - her necklace for my beads. Wait until you see it! You'll have to check out her work, it's fabulous! For now, I'll sign off...and start laundry, and pay some bills, and pack some beads, and clean up the kitchen, etc. etc. etc.! Have a nice weekend!
