Beads with vacation on the mind

(Bad Photos)

So yesterday I finally spent some time on the torch. I am getting ready for vacation and my beads show it. We are going to the Cook Islands and I am dreaming of the lagoons. So, naturally my beads have a tropical lagoon feel. I played around with some frit to give them a coraly (my own word) feel. Like always, when I get my little treasures out of the kiln and inspect them, more ideas come to mind. So tonight I am going to try to make some sets with the tropical water feel. I also have a project to go along with the theme of these beads that I cant wait to get it started. Hopefully I will get enough beads done before my trip to Mexico this week, so I can work on the beading there.
I should have more bead pictures up tomorrow.

Someday soon there will be beads

OK, let me try this again.

I have been working very little on the torch these days, and I have many excuses. First life has been hectic; work, school, sports, vacations blah blah blah. The other excuses is the weather. Its been cold and rainy and that makes me want to cuddle on the couch with a blanket and do nothing. So now that the weather has cleared up today, I have some energy and I want to get out on the torch. But of course its not that easy because now I'm out of oxygen.(for my torch, not to breathe) Another day of wasted creativity.

*note to self try to post at least once a week (start off slow)
