What An Eeyore

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

I am back from vacation, actually I have been back for a week I have just been really busy.  I spent some very limited minutes at the torch. Having so much going on and the temperature being over 100 degrees it's hard to spend a lot of time doing beads right now. Of coarse then when I do sit down to make some beads I have a melt down, and not because of the heat. I just did a few beads today and threw in the towel because I felt like nothing I was doing was right. They weren't round enough, the dimple wasn't good, my stupid clear glass is dirty, blah blah blah. Woe is me. I am taking a deep breath now and getting over myself. This weekend I am going to another class in Gilroy at Graceful Customs Studio. This class is the class I have been waiting for, its called Inside Out Aquarium Beads. I should get some great ideas for my snorkeling beads from it. Alright, I am going to the kitchen to clear my head now and make some chocolate chip cookies. I should have at least one bead to show tomorrow.
