New Beads

Finally! I just can't seem to find my creative spark lately. I was happy with these as the elusive Raku glass has a mind of it's own. Thanks for looking!

More Lilies!

We had two open at once yesterday. I love the color of these even though they are a little smaller than the yellow ones.
I actually made beads yesterday and I will post them after they are cleaned and photographed.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!
I snapped this just as these 2 blooms had opened. Sadly, they only last for one day.
No beads this week but I plan on trying again next week. I received some new frit to test so that should motivate my creativity.
Have a wonderful day!

I am enjoying our pond this year. We have more dragonflies than I have ever seen before. I managed to stalk this one until he would stay still long enough for me to get a photograph.
Our fish had babies! They are growing and hopefully we will have some that will survive.
I seem to be in a bead slump and I am taking a short break. I will post photos soon but I need to work on household projects and that should get me back in the mood to make beads.

Sleep Deprived

Has anyone ever listened to frogs all night? They are very cute but it is amazing how much noise can come out of something so small. The toads and frogs love our pond. Their mating season should not last long but I have to wear earplugs to block out part of their constant mating calls.
Our first yellow water lily bloomed yesterday. Isn't it pretty?

Empty Nest

Now I know what it feels like. Both of my kids have graduated and this is the first time that neither of them are living at home. It feels like a part of me is missing. I realize that this is normal but it is a lot harder than I thought it would be.
I have not made many beads lately, but I am hoping that will change now that things have calmed down. This one is bent and would make a great bracelet.
