Sunday is catch up day....where does the week go so quickly?

I do remember my mother saying time just flew by faster with each coming year and now I honestly understand.  Friday we had wonderful visitors in my studio with recommendations for possible Zanesville exhibition coming up.  She also asked if she could pass my information onto a gallery exhibit in Fort never know what will become of a kind supportive word.  I went home and felt very tired with an oncoming cold and went to bed by 8 pm.  I woke up late but went downtown to try my hand at lampwork beads...Sean Everett was extremely patient but my brain could not get a handle on turning the mandrel and the tube of glass in the torch light simultaneously.  I respect the work of glass artists ever so much more now.  Afterwards I watched young people make their own hand blown pumpkins...Larry Tuber was a great instructor and the works looked a lot better than my small beads. 

I then went over to Myers and Pugh to see my glass artist friend Jenny Pitts.  She makes beautiful hand  made glass beads and pendants for jewelry necklaces and bracelets.  I always enjoy visiting this wonderful space...the beads are magic and the staff for Mike and Kevin make everyone feels so welcomed!  I went to JoAnn's for their special sale and found some great batik fabrics and 99cents Simplicity patterns...I know how to enjoy the coming of a new season!  I stopped by Michaels and received some incredible scraps for my family night art sessions.  I shared some of my projects with them and we talked about using paper clay air dry clay for a planned angel project.  If I worked here I would be in serious spare cash ever!
