Does everyone still hate Mondays? Is that still a thing? I wouldn’t know. I have no idea what day it is half of the time anyhow.
I did it! I did all the pictures and describing and Etsy stuff, and now the beads are ready for you to look at. I’m kind of liking going back to the semi-once-a-week Etsy listings. That is, until I get my Etsy bill. Then I don’t like it as much. But I’ll stick with it for a while – at least until I can figure out how to do everything I want to do all in one day and still have time to read important works of fiction and clean the toilet somewhat regular-like. Fat chance, right?
I’m also planning on focusing on lampwork for a while – no silver stuff for a little bit longer. I have new glass ideas and the desire to risk the disappointment if they turn out crappy – so I should stay on task. Now that I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m (intrinsically) too self-indulgent to stick to a routine, self-imposed or otherwise, I must, at the very least, limit my number of irons in the fire. But certainly not my number of mandrels, yuk-yuk. So this is good news – if you’ve been hesitating on placing a made-to-order, hesitate no longer. The glass is my oyster for a while and there are no other random projects standing in the way of timely completion. But what if it’s cold? I guess I’ll just put on my boots and fleece dress and legwarmers and tights and apron and crocheted hat and spin you up some of whatever you’ve ordered up.
By the by, if you look closely, you might notice I re-worked a couple of the sets shown in my last post. The True Turquoise Fizz Tabs needed two green bases, and I remade the too-streaky ones in the Umbrella Rondells. A little bit of streaky is fine, but those were just too streaky for my liking. I like them much better now. So here they are:
