The Need to Bead

It's been way too long since the last time I wrote.  I have no excuses, just haven't done it.  I usually do it when I'm inspired by other blogger friends.  I guess what I need to do is keep an open tab on my computer to remind me.

I have been in Florida for the last 6 months where I was able to spend a lot of time on the torch.  I had the opportunity to take a class while I was down there with Roscio Bearer.  I also spent some time with my friend Marie Weulfing who is also a bead maker.  I didn't get to spend much time with my friend Shirley Groser, which I regret, but we keep up on the phone and Facebook.  I was really hoping to get to do a little "big glass" work with Rick, but he wasn't doing any classes because he was busy with working on his own body of work.  Maybe next year.

 So, while in Florida I made tons of beads.  I have such a stash I've gotten way too far behind photographing and posting them on Etsy or Artfire.  That's another one of my and prepping the photos to be posted online.  Here's a few pics of some of my work.

So as I inserted these pictures, I got very frustrated!  Another reason I have a hard time getting off my butt to write in my blog is frustration!  I really wanted to arrange these photos differently, but they just wouldn't move where I wanted them to, so this is what I got.
