For the first time since Sunday I melted some glass and made beads today and you know what? I LOVE making beads, I miss it so much when I'm not able to get out there. Even though I felt horrible during the last week I had so many ideas tumbling about in my brain I re-instated "the notebook" and when I was awake long enough could be found scribbling away in it. Ideas were just falling over each other and I think it is largely due to a fantastic creative beadmaking group I am part of. It is being run by Sylvie Lansdowne online through Facebook and it just seems to be firing parts of my brain that have not been fired before.I really need to spend less time stressing about taking photographs, updating the website and generally administering the business side and just lose myself in the pure joy of the glass.
