Yesterday mom and I ran around doing errands and mostly just blowing off the morning, but in the afternoon I worked on making beads and mom worked on sawing out pieces to be enameled.
Here are the beads I worked on:
|Beads for a project|
|My favorite and mom's favorite beads|
|Playing with new glass and clear frit|
|White base with clear frit|
|Playing with new frit and new glass|
|My oopps beads - still learning how to fume beads|
It was a little cold in the garage so mom set up shop in the kitchen. She laid down paper to catch the copper shavings and little copper pieces she sawed off. Trying to keep the cats out of the paper is a new kind of fun.
Yes, that is a skull in the second picture and I totally dislike it but it is for someone and it has to get done -- gives me the willies. I don't like scary things, that means I don't watch scary movies either. I still can't watch the Black Hole without nightmares, and that is a Disney movie. Big old Army vet freaked out on scary movies. What is more crazy is that myself and several others watched the Blair Witch movie the day before we went to the field for a week - needless to say none of us wanted to be on guard duty at night.
I did get three new things posted on Etsy today. The items I posted were One-Decade Rosaries. Mom won't let me tear them apart because she likes them, but we have had them for two years now and they still haven't sold. I will give them until next year and if they still haven't sold I am going to rip them apart and make the beads into something else or I will just sell the beads. We shall see.
