|Start of brainstorming for Bead Soup|
It has been awhile since mom and I have done anything bead, metalsmithing, or torching related and I was jonesing to work in the studio. Mom and I started our brainstorming session of what we wanted to do with the goodies for our Bead Soup pieces. Oh, so you know, we have the goodies in the laundry room because Lily was trying to make off with the bag of goodies, so had to move the goodies to a place she is not allowed into. This is the first layout of the goodies, mom got our beading trays out and we started breaking down what we liked and didn't like. I am showing you the start because I nixed this idea and we came up with a different one for this piece. We finally came up with ideas for three pieces and got the pieces on the beading boards to begin the putting together process.

Treasures Found, calles it "The Crud". I have a stuffy nose, sore throat and (not sure how to explain it) a heaviness in my chest. So, overall, I feel like crud. I am taking mom's advice and I am not going to work in the garage today, though I really want to.
