Life spinning faster than the Earth's rotation.

The Earth rotates in a fairly slow and steady  predicatable manner.  My life is spinning out of control like it has been hit by a meteorite. Have been dealing with a major medical crisis 1200 miles away.  Thank goodness for my husband who was able to immediately fly to  New York and help my 90 year old mother.  In the process of this I got a new supervisor that did not want any new responsibilities.  So our weekly, "Get to Know You Meetings"  been a weekly character assassination.  My husband is back from  New York and we are frantically getting a room ready for my mother to move from New York to Iowa. It is a good thing, she is great to have around,  just about 6 months earlier than we had planned.  But as John Lennon said, Life happens when you are making other plans.

On to the Bead Scene:  Erin sent me a beautiful package of goodies for the bead swap.  I finally got  my beads sent back to her.  It was like the little package that never got mailed.  So I am looking forward to going outside and taking a breath while I make something fun with what I got from the Bead Swap.

Loving the Process.

I was very happy to hear from my Bead Soup partner Erin.     You know I love to create with clay, love to process, (hate the sanding) but love the end result.  I love to make beads and make more beads and more beads and more beads but rarely put them together into anything.  So...I have lots and lots and lots  of beads, and I swear they reproduce. How will I ever decide what to send my Bead Soup partner.  Or, should I make something new--- I always love doing that, wink-wink.
So I will go through my collection.   Collection?  Is that what it is is or is it "Collecting?"  Or is that a fancy name for Hoarding?  Oh Good Lordy, I think I have become a Bead Hoarder.  Well, at least they are small and non-perishable. Maybe it is a Trunk Show.   I just need to re-frame into something that sounds much sophisticated and acceptable.

Another Day, A New Adventure.

I am not the most Techno-Savvy when it comes to this Blog thing.  But... I am signing up for Bead Soup and one must have a Blog.     Also going to participate in the August Art Bead Challenge.  Pretty excited, it should help my stretch my creativity.  I am looking forward to these new adventures.  Some of my favorite people have blogs so I should just join in.  I had a previous Blog that is now defunct.  So this is definitely the place to be.
