Home again, in Indiana!
We had an uneventful, however mind numbingly dull and long ride from Florida to Indiana. I am happy to report that all the pets, Joe and I survived and landed happily in Angola on Sunday.
We spent the first day....doing....what else? Raking, scooping and dragging the leaves that pile up like snow drifts in our lawn and garden. We pile them up like a mountain in the woods, and then the next year use it as mulch/compost. Handy little system.
I did get the studio up and running today, and after a lovely morning at the Shipshewanna Auction, I got back to work.
I will be listing more beads this week, so keep in touch!
Also, If there are any lampworkers that read this blog, I picked up at the Shipshy flea market a bunch of my favorite glass tools. I use a special dental palette to push and indent my flower petals. I use this high tech tool most often with my Hibiscus flowers, but I always have them on my desk for a variety of uses including shaping the sides of the beads. I would be completely lost without them! If any lampworkers out there can't find this invaluable tool themselves, I have plenty, and would be happy to share them with you. They cost all of $2.25. Now thats High Tech stuff! This tool was mentioned in the Bead and Button Spotlight page about my beads. Just email me: Elliotart@aol.com
