(the screaming kind not the happy relaxed kind)

I'm SO TICKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why am I screaming you ask???? WELL... I'm screaming because I have a bad batch of Nymo. For you non-beady types, nymo is a type of nylon thread used for beading.

Why would I be THIS upset over a spool of thread???

Well, here's why. I have a mountain of size 15/0 seed beads on my beading tray right now. Beads that were in a completely different form at 9:00 last night... beads that were a beautiful little Head Over Heels Queen of Hearts, close to completion!!!!!! Something was wrong with the thread and as I held the piece it pretty much disintegrated in my fingers... beads spilling threads splitting.

It was a beading nightmare!!! HOURS and HOURS near DAYS of work spilled onto my beading tray. I cried.... then I tried to look at it as some sort of "maybe I should use this as an opportunity to do something different" sort of moment that I encourage students to do when things go wrong. "BUT I DON'T WANT TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!!" is what I screamed inside.

SO.... where do I sit today? Having pile of beads ready to be re-beaded FAST so that I can get my project photographed and flyers/emails ready to go out about the retreat.

I'm truly sad about this and truly stressed out over the time wastage... but I have no choice other than take another 2 days to re-do this work. :(

(and please don't send me a message telling me that you hate Nymo... I know people do, but I've NEVER had a problem with it... it's always been kind to me.... but our relationship is on the rocks right now and it has some MAJOR makin-up to do!!!)

tiny blah blah blah

coffee? ohhhh yeah. I might even need a 2nd cup!

music - I'm playing my long mellow playlist...which apparently is NOT the mellow list because I'm listening to Bootilicious and now a Pussy Cat Dolls song.... which are NOT on the mellow playlist. Guess the ipod thought I needed something OTHER than mellow????
