Hello-It's been forever since I updated

Hello all. It has been over a year since I updated this blog. My apologies. Life has been busy with both personal and professional happenings and something had to give. This was one of them. Right now I want to provide a quick update as to what we have been doing.

First off, Greg has started making murrini for sale. He started in September of last year and has built up quite the inventory of both 104 and 90 COE. See it here.

Last year we had an intern come and stay with us for the months of January and February. The lovely Ms. Ali VandeGrift was here lampworking. She did some studio work for us and I introduced her to the wonders of running your own business.  While she was here she procured a scientific glass  internship at Oak Ridge Lab in Knoxville. She is now happily a full-time employee and making beads in her spare time. Be sure to check out her etsy store.

In addition, last year we did three more shows after The Best Bead show in Tuscon. In March we had fun at Marble Crazy in Kansas City. Then I met up with Susan Sheehan in Milwaukee, where we shared a table at Bead and Button. We will be attending again this year, with each of us having a full eight foot table. To round off the show season Greg and I once again attended the Houston Bead Society show in November. It is rapidly becoming our favorite show.  It’s a small show, but comfortable and one of the best as far as promoters go. Plus it is an easy drive from here. We will be returning again this year.

Right now I am busy building inventory for this years Bead and Button show in June. Also, I am spending a lot of time writing. If you’ve been here before you know I wrote a paranormal romance that was completed early last year. So far it’s not published, but I am considering self-publishing it later this year. In the mean time I have been working on an Urban Fantasy involving a fairy, a witch and a vampire. More on that later. It is about half done and very rough being it is still the first draft.

In order to keep me motivated I am joining the 1000 words a day challenge and will be keeping a log here as to how I do. I’m hoping it keeps me motivated. Accountability is one of my great motivators, so wish me luck.
