I see the world through rose colored safety glasses
Took me a long time, but I finally learned that I don't need to order lots of colors for what I like to do. Dark ivory, turquoise, and Nile green are my standards. The others are beautiful (even all those different corals, LOL), but I still have lots of them here and there that haven't been used up in almost three years. Now, if I could learn the same restraint when it comes to plain old pens, pencils, and paper :)
I find that I over-restrain on things I need, but impulse-buy things I don't need. So basically, I have a lot of crap but not necessities (this applies to my life & my glass). *eyeroll*
What a pretty pretty picture :)I don't indulge very often, but I did just purchase some odd lot green that doesn't even sell well for me when I make beads with it. Isn't that idiotic??I don't care~I love the color.
It's truly hard to restrain. I just look at the checkbook. That helps. Dang it! I still have checks, though!
Ahhh distance makes the restraint so easy for me!When I look & drool over all the sale glasses, make my choices & then load them into my cart I marvel at how much glass I can get for so little money.3lbs glass $34.25 - shipping here $35.75. It really is easy to resist temptation ;o)Cindy - your post made me laugh - it was the Ink Blue that tempted me, just briefly, in the first place also.
Hi Angela,Your sculpture is so lovely you're right, it doesn't need additions!Cindy
LOL, one eared - you made me laugh out of recognition - that's what I'm doing! Darn those glass sellers and all the pretty colors - I can resist, I can resist, I can resist! :-)Cindy
Hi Sweetwater!Oooooo green my eyes are just rolling back into my head thinking of all the pretty shades of green there are! Buy all the green glass you want - it IS a pretty color and I'm sure you make lovely beads from it!Cindy
Hi Mallory,Sounds like you have a way to resist - I tend to get caught up in the color and do I have that? No! Then I NEED it! I had to stop reading the glass boards because we glassies work ourselves into a frenzy over a new color and I definitely join in to the mob mentality - why did I buy that lichen? It's not a very attractive color! It was MOB Mentality! LOL!Cindy
Yikes, $35 for shipping???? Wow Deb that's a way to resist for sure!I love ink blue - I have it in all the available shades - why? I don't know why. Mob mentality! ;-)Cindy
OMG!!! I have glass stash envy!!
