I wonder when I will finally get use to the thunder down here? Here I am busy working away at the computer, when I see a flash of bright light. Now it is a little after 1pm, so the middle of the day. Obviously, I am not registering what it must be, when a huge clap of thunder rolls. Good thing I wasn’t holding any beads or marbles. I might have just dropped them. I have to admit, the storms do freak me out a bit. I try hard not to be freaked out by them, especially since Disney (my 10 yr old Golden Retriever), is really freaked out by the storms. Poor old girl, she gets really nervous. I know I am not suppose to make any big deal of it and all that, so I don’t. However, sometimes she gets so scared I have no choice to comfort her. I mean really, how long would you leave your baby freaking out by themselves? I guess these two Bay Area, California girls are just going to have to get use to it, living down here in the south!
It must be wonderful to be tech savy. Some days I feel like I am barely computer literate. I spent a majority of my morning just trying to figure out how to get some links posted in the right place. I know how to post a link. I get that. I guess, it’s mostly just figuring out new programs that takes most of my time. Unfortunately, nothing about computers is second nature to me, so maybe it is just enough that I have gotten as far as I have. I also have my bead ladies to thank for helping me get this far. Thanks ladies, you know who you are.
So the rest of this labor day will be spent with me working on other web projects, most likely Bonded! By Fire. Then I get to torch later this afternoon. Greg already has a marble in the kiln and is working on new murrini. One of these days I am going to have to make another marble and try some more murrini. In all of my spare time I guess.
09/02 3:00pm Good afternoon. Welcome to September. I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. Mine is turning out to consist of a lot of computer work. It isn’t too bad, it’s just that since we have been spending a bunch of time on the house, my computer time has been lacking.
Some of my associates and I have been working on some new projects, that I would like to call your attention to. The first one is Modern Savages. It is an inspiration project blog site, where you can can see us working on new themes and ideas, and find out where you can purchase them if you so wish.
The second is Bonded! by Fire. It is a cooperative of artists within the art glass and jewelry community that came about from a desire to showcase and support the work of its members. We have a newsletter that we will be sending out with links to tutorials, artist interviews, and articles. Click here to sign up: Newsletter.
