No beads to show (i’m not really into seasonal beads) but to celebrate the day I thought i’d share a few of my fave short videos about love – in all its many stages…
Love at all costs (funny one):
Validation through love (just plain adorable!):
The end of love (sad and beautiful at the same time):
I’m back on the Teenager’s computer again as the kitten Busta finally finished chewing through my laptop’s power cable. Now doesn’t having a cat usually mean no pets chewing random valuables around the house??? i might as well have a dog.
Soooo… until i decide whether to replace the power cable and harddrive on my laptop vs buying a new one, i’m trapped in that teenage hellhole again… damn cat. Anyhoo, i did manage to backup most of my pics from the last meltdown so found a few more from February and March. (I didn’t torch much in April/May as I had the flu.)
These random beads were for a long bead exchange on LE. They’re all about 2-2.5″ long (except the purple one) which isn’t huge for me at all – my beads are normally 1.5-2.5″ long. I think the winner made a bead something like 11″ long. not sure what one would do with a massive (and fragile!) piece of glass like that… I wanted to try bigger but about 4″ is my max. anything larger seems to be beyond the limits of my current torch – i can get there but it takes forever to melt all that glass and the results are seriously ugly.
This Chocolate Goddess was part of a gift package for Valentine’s Day…
My sister snapped up this Winter Garden pendant as soon as it came out of the kiln… Note my improved stringer control – that Corina stringer DVD has really helped.
I’ve been torching all weekend and have some new beadies cooling in the kiln right now. I’ll try to post them tomorrow…
