It's Sunday, what's that mean? More BEADS!!!

I spent several hours yesterday and today both creating glass beads. I have no clue what the ones I made today will look like, but the ones I made yesterday are great!!! I am really happy with them all. Check them out and tell me what you think. If you want to see them bigger, just click on the photos. Today I made several beads for Beads of Courage, if you don't know what that is, please click on the name and it will take you to their website. It is a really important program supported in part by fellow glass melters like me. Look through the information there and figure out where you can help out.

I will be back later tonight after the kiln cools and show you what I made today. It is warm and beautiful here today, of course the kitchen area is really warm, the torch has been going for over four hours and the kiln has been on for six.

The cat is trying really hard to drive me crazy. I let him in not more than five minutes ago and now he is crying to go back out. This is a pretty normal activity around our house. I just can't get a cat door because there are too many animals in our neighborhood who would love nothing more than to sneak into our house and go on a scavenger hunt. Not the least of which are raccoons. They got into my daughter's home last summer and destroyed half her kitchen and ate everything that wasn't either canned or in the refrigerator. What a disaster area it was when they were through.

Dad and I both have a cold / flu right now and are trying to get over the cough. It has been an uphill battle and I don't see the end in sight. Hoping a cold is all it is. If so it will be over in another 5-6 days at most.

Hope you and dad feel better soon!! Fabulous beads!! And didn't you know that you are merely the cat's door person? Even with a dog door, the cat's insist on us letting them in and out of the front door! LOL Yup, we're cat slaves! :)
