In A Bead Rut


I am in a rut - a bead rut. I am just not feeling the beadmaking vibes, muse, whatever you want to call it. I do have two orders I will be making tomorrow, but otherwise, I haven't really been making any beads. It's been pretty cold here, for one thing. This is the most snow we've had in years - about 12 inches on the ground, all coming in the past 10 days. There was no school on Friday. It's funny, because even though there's no school, people manage to make it up to the slopes to snowboard or ski (my daughter being one of them!). There are some nice beads in my SueBeads etsy store ready for you to purchase, to make your next jewelry design. I've been doing a lot of cleaning out lately, but maybe I'll get the beading feeling back in the next few days!

And, thank you all for the very nice comments about my recent publications!!!!

Oh you know 'tis the rut season. To cold, inside air getting stale and too dark too early! But yay, the days are getting longer:)I have had my eye on these beads - the colors so beautiful and I love the pattern. They have a wonderful exotic feel.

When I get in a rut I just blog, surf etsy or clean out my studio and just try to get some ideas flowing in my head.

Good Luck!!

I do agree...I think it is the rut season...for me the cold is awful, but I live in northern Ontario so I should be able to take it right?

There are always nice beads at your Etsy store...

Take sometime and just forget about it, do something completely different...then it will hit you!!!

Cheers

Yeah...I think the weather has a lot of us wondering where the vibe went...maybe it froze up with everything else? I'm hoping that some time away and in the sun will help a bit...

I hope you find the magical way out of your rut!

Oh, Sue, I do sympathize. We are cold, grey, and gloomy here too. It is just so hard to get motivated. Maybe we just need to visualize spring...tulips, iris, and green. Oh we do need green!

Rut begone, for all of us!

I keep wondering why schools close in the US as soon as some snow appears. After all, people still need to get places, even in the winter, or does business close down also?...

Yeah, this yucky Pittsburgh weather can do that to you. It's actually quite pretty but only when you're inside with hot cocoa to sip. You've really been working hard lately on so many wonderful lampwork creations. You deserve a break for your body and your mind.

I love the colors in these beads. You make such beautiful beads for being in a rut!
