Thankz and Heartz N Skullz

Thank you to all my wonderful readers who left me well wishes on my blog yesterday. I really appreciate the good thoughts. I've started the vitamin regimen and with each capsule, I say, "Cheers, here to fewer migraines!" So this morning, you can lift your vitamin capsules and make a toast with me - here's to better health for us all! (Hmmmm that's slightly reminiscent of Tiny Tim's,"God bless us, everyone!" - but if the shoe fits....;-)

I had several hours to myself yesterday so you know where I went - into the glass studio to melt some glass!

If you had a chance to visit me over on last week's ABS Studio Saturday, I'm working on refining my artistic "voice." I asked the ABS readers to weigh in on where they thought I should go next with my beads. Overwhelmingly, comments told me to do what I love.

Yesterday, after having seen Alice in Wonderland, the Tim Burton Exhibit and buying a new Land's End t-shirt for the gym, I had stripes swirling around in my head. They made their way onto yesterday's beads - here's a quick snap of them.....


Mixed media influences come into play as I wanted them to look worn, so I've added a black patina to them which I'll cure today.

Do you like the stripes?

The stripes really rock! Will they be posted for sale and if so, where?

Love the stripes, the add so much movement to your work.

Here's to fewer headaches! I've had a sinus headache for two days -- I'd like to pluck out my left eye to relieve the pressure (not a good idea, I know) It's allergy season here and everythig that blooms is blooming all at once, ykies.

Take care and go make more striped beads.
