made beads today....not very exciting beads, but at least I got back on the torch again.

This time of year is ALWAYS the time of year that I just don't feel like making beads. I questioned last summer whether I even liked it anymore. I'm still unsure.

I like what making my own beads allows me to do artistically (sp????)

Just pondering life and my reason for creating things.

Off to do other stuff now...

Some days you need to whine...some days you don't.

I think I'm done whining. I'm still not getting anything done...spinning and creating, but not getting anything productive-wise done. Sadly, the productive is what pays the bills.

I need a benefactor who will allow me to just create...and they can pay the bills and buy me great shoes! :)

Posting again!

I gave myself a few days break after coming home and now it's time to get back in gear!

I need to contact bead stores to book future classes...finish my angel sample and make beads for e-bay.

Just paid Rob's tuition, so selling beads is a must right now! Not even for shoes this time (my normal e-bay money goes to shoes LOL)

Off to do stuff...

no starbucks in a LONG LONG time. I've pretty much kicked the habit.

I developed a donut habit, but have also kicked that one too!

M&M habit still here, but as long as I keep exercising, hopefully it won't be damaging!

Sore from being back in the exercise swing again after a big break getting ready for show/classes.

ok...really off to work this time!

It's me.

It's actually a posting. We'll see if it happens more than once. I'm home for a little while. I taught for NanC Meinhardt in her new studio this last weekend. I had a wonderful time and I hope the class did too. They were lots of fun and great beaders. Hi to anyone who was there!!! <--Sylvie (this Sylvie) waving to you.

For being in a good mood about that class, I'm also bummin' a little bit. My classes just don't seem to be filling like they did before. I didn't have the response to the new project...The Clothesline that I had hoped.

Am I a one hit wonder?

Do I have to go back to doing shows and put teaching on the back burner?

Is there any hope for my hair?

Can I give up sweets?

Will I ever go below ____ lbs? (I'm at a plateau due to my love of sweets)

Can I still afford new windows for my house?

For the answers to these and other questions...

Tune in next year for "Sylvie's Blues Review"
