Common problem Im sure - for example - here is what my home office looks like on a good day...
Im not complaining. Im #justsayin'
Then, I found the corpses of some of my frog friends. I dont know why these guys died, but when I found them rotting in the empty plant pot they used to shelter in during the day, well, I just couldnt leave them there. I scooped them out and put them in a dry place in the sun for a few weeks. The bones are so fine! Here they are on a bed of salt before being completely covered in salt. They have been in the salt a few weeks now, I dont know how it will affect them. When I get around to it, we will see.
And somewhere in the last few months, some stars lined up to push me back in a direction I left behind...I dont know if I even can still make beads...my hands and neck may not allow a good end result....but you know what? I MISS MELTING GLASS and experimenting with the chemical reactions and the whole process of creation. So what if what I end up with is an expensive mess - life has got to have some fun, right?
I am slowly building my kit up again, and savouring the anticipation. I will stick with the hot head for awhile, see what comes of this - if I even have any time for it - it doesnt have to be beads - it could be something else - the transformations are still taking place - not all of them ones we would wish for - all the more reason to learn to have some fun where one can?
