Can’t believe it’s February already. . .Really, not much to blog about, obviously since it’s been so long since I’ve blogged. I almost forgot that I had a wordpress account until I remembered that I have a wordpress account.
Lots going on in my personal world and that keeps me from sticking my head out of my hole to see what’s going on out here. Hopefully this shiny new year finds you all in a better place than last year. Not so sure about myself though. . .My lampwork career focus is about as fine tuned as the juice diet I can’t seem to acclimate to. The state of the world’s economy doesn’t do much for one’s need to prove themselves, but I think you all know what I mean. I devote most of my time to my personal world which includes my family, (the fury and furless), and when I can, I steal a little time to review the planets to see what kind of bs tomorrow has in store for me. Somewhere in between all of that, I find the gumption to walk the green mile that takes me to my studio in order to bang out the next thing that looks almost just like the thing I banged out last week. I would love it if a new awesome glass or series of glasses would come out to hit the market. I’m BORED!
My favorite thing of 2012 is the Ancient Ruins (series 2) lampwork heart pendant and sterling silver necklace that I made a couple of weeks ago. . .Created from a discontinued glass that I doubt I’ll be able to ever get again. Making the piece made me happy.
2012 is supposed to be a year of consciousness awaking. Someone please come up with a brilliant new line of delicious 104 coe glass before I totally lose interest in trying to rekindle my creative zen. There are lots of great glasses in the 104 line but I can’t seem to get find them exciting. Could be my environment too though. My studio is cold, damp and ugly. It has creepy crawly things and it smells a little like gym socks. On the positive side, it does have a bo-flex that I could use during my breaks if I would remove all of the boxes of Christmas decorations from it’s sleek black weight bench.
