In need of a little break but....

Ok, so I've been less than bloggiful lately. My backyard has been dug up for 3 weeks, not a little dug up but completely dug up with a backhoe sitting there and everything.



All right, so maybe it's not as big as THIS backhoe but after three weeks it FEELS like it! Every morning when I open the curtains in the dining room, there it is, looming larger and larger. I think it had designs on the house!

I'm feeling burned out. Time for a little mental refreshment. So even though the economy is bad, I'm going to spend a little of that money I've been saving for the past year and go to the Glass Art Society Conference in Corning, NY.

Originally, I wanted to go for the full conference but cut it down to one day to save on cash. I've got the day packed full though. I'll watch some demonstrations in the morning, go on a tour of Steuben Glass then to the vendors section to take a look at a new torch. Corning is about a 2.5 hour drive from my home so the day will be packed in between a longer than normal drive - but I've been planning to go since 2007 - can't miss it!

Corning sounds like an incredibly fun way to juice up the inspiration tank! As for the backhoe, I think I would be having visions of Mike Mulligan and Mary Anne gone mad. . .eek! Hope that thing gets done with its business real soon and you can get your backyard back :)

Corning should juice up my creativity - I'm feeling really empty lately. I'm going solo but I don't mind - I always run into cool people when I go off to a conference. Looking forward to it!
