Look what I did today...WOO HOO!
It doesn't look too exciting, but trust me it is! It's a kiln full of 260something beads!!
With today's haul of beads (shown above) I've ALMOST crossed the "cool colors" list off the Blackboard of Bossiness!!! You might not be as excited as I am about this statement, but for me, it's a big deal. I'm TIRED of green, turquoise and purple. REALLY over it!!
I've tried to be very methodical about prepping for shows the last year... working in one color palette until all the beads are made before moving onto the next palette. This keeps my glass a little more under control and seems to help me stay on track a little better. This cool palette, however, just about killed me!! Mostly because SO many of my kits use beads in those colors.... I still have about 30 or so beads left to make, but I should be able to knock them out tomorrow morning and I will have made all the beads for the following kits....
Flora Flora - Cool Chick, Hot Chick, Sassy Chick (still have 4 chicks to go... not looking likely that we will be seeing City Chick (black and white) or Chick-to-be-named-later (grape-y) at Bead and Button.
Sweetheart - Cool, Bright, Hot, Green/Purple (these don't have cute color names yet)
Springalicious - Cool, Hot, Bright,
Say So Ring - Alex, Stacey, Margo
Stack Ring - Alex, Stacey, Margo
Berry Bloom Earrings - Cool
That list makes it look like I've barely started... but I've been doubling up on beads for some things, so I've got a bunch ready to go when I get to the grape-y kits. That said, there is still a LOT to do. I'm hoping to move on to rich browns/coppers tomorrow afternoon. HOPING.
ok... this probably was boring to anyone other than me. Sorry. I'm just thinking through my "to-do" list.
and now... I'm going to reward myself with an evening out! YAY!!
