Late Roses-interesting color-sunshine

Friday, August 26, 2011

We've had some we have sunshine...what more can I ask for???

This rose interested me, it's the color. Hopefully I will get some time to paint next week. I'm still suffering from a sinus infection...I haven't had one of these for years. It kinda knocked me for a loop. I finally broke down and saw the doc. There is a light at the end of the tunnel now, the meds are doing their job and I'm feeling better. The headaches are less and I'm not a tired all the time.

That's it...have a great weekend!

Later Gators,

More Lampwork Beads...Mini Series...what I'm doinn' today...

Tuesday, August 16, 2011
 Yep, I still miss Austin, Texas.  I know it's really hot down there right now but...well, it's the people that I miss.  Anyway...
 These are part of a mini series...Austin City Limits.  I think they will make up into some lovely pieces of jewelry.  I only did 3 sets, that's enough for right now.

I will be uploading a few more sets today but the weather is perfect for bead making so I'm going out to the garage and hitting the torch first. 

The below set is silvered glass...and is what I'm working on today. 
There's something about this glass that makes my Muse do cartwheels. 

Later Gators!

Etsy Treasury...and update

Monday, August 15, 2011

This is more than a drive by...I'm catching up on emails and processing beady photos.  I hope to be listing some beads soon.  Like in the next couple of days.  So far the beady photos are going OK. 

Art Show Booth Pictures

 This was the first time that Bob and I showed together, other than jewelry.  Bob created the baskets and I, the 2-D work.

We had a double booth and won the Best Booth Award at the show.  

That's enough of the self-pats-on-the-back...back to beady photos!!!

Later Gators,

Thought I'd Give it a Try...

I've been seeing all these lovely Etsy Treasuries, so I thought I'd give it a try...

What I like about Etsy's Treasury...

Saturday, August 06, 2011
It's always interesting to see what people pick...I'm always honored when my work is picked.

It's good to be back up on being in a Treasury

New Lampwork...time to fill my Etsy shop

Friday, August 05, 2011
I finally got half caught up....I'm getting ready to upload a bunch of new lampwork sets on Etsy.

Testing...1,2,3...New Lampwork

Tuesday, August 02, 2011
I'm working on a bunch of photos right now.  The above is part of the issue.  How to take silvered glass photos...I'm hoping this work.  This set is lovely (it's not me, it's the type of glass that makes it that way) but I'm having troubles getting the lens to pick the different shades and tones of the beads.

Ok...back to the drawing board.

I'm Progressing...Saucer-Disk Shape

Monday, August 01, 2011
 Having the computer fixed has worked wonders, things are soooooo much easer.   Geez, I may even venture back to Facebook.  There came a point, time wise, that I had to cold turkey FB.  I was spending a couple hours a day that I just didn't have.  I needed that time to either be working on sketchbooks or painting. 

The above looks much better in hand than on the screen.  Anyway, these are my's the color combo.   

Well I'm back to work...I've still have a huge pile of bead sets to photograph.  I am hoping that I won't do this to myself again.  When the pile gets this large, it's almost overwhelming. :-)
