I am extremely bummed out that Hailey and I did not make it to Connecticut to see my dear friends Kristen and Ann :( I was really sure that I would feel better, but going back to work so soon and still having my bead show on Thursday night really did me in :( I did get a credit on my plane tickets though, so we will have to reschedule VERY SOON!!!!!
The bead show went well on Thursday!! I do have many beads to list in my esty shop and hope to get some pictures together this weekend and get them listed.....I will not list them all since there is more than 150 beads, but I will get a good variety up I promise!
I also plan to really get back to work on bead sets for my etsy shop. I got a beautiful brand new kiln in this week which means I will no longer be limited in my bead making sessions!!!!!! With one kiln I would make beads for a few hours....need a break and start the soaking and shut down of my kiln....this meant it would be anywhere from 5-7 hours before I could start making beads again! Now with two kilns, I can make beads......stop and do other things around the house or run errands....and then WHENEVER I want start up a new bead making session because I have a kiln just sitting there empty ready to go! My only limitation will be mandrels (and I have a TON of those)!!!! I am sooooo excited about being able to increase my production this way!
I am hoping to feel better and maybe make some beads today....don't really know yet if that will happen because right now I just want to hide under the covers. Please check back soon for my etsy shop to come back to "life"!! Thanks for checking in!
Happy Birthday Jack and Meghan! I hope you two have a WONDERFUL day!! So sorry we are not there, but we will see you soon :)
