Has winter gotten you down? I am sad to say that in all my years this winter has been one of the hardest ones for me. I am not really sure why. Maybe I miss all the time I spent outside in the sun over the summer? Maybe not being able to create when the temps outside are in the teens? Whatever the reason winter has been pretty uneventful and cold. At least if the cold came with a snow filled landscape it would be worth it. It's just like the balls hot days of summer when you are trapped inside until temperatures get to a "reasonable" level.
I am sad to say that with the temps they way they are it's absolutely miserable to sit in my studio with my feet on the the basement floor that may as well be a sheet of ice as the cool winter breeze seeps in from the open windows. I guess it's kind of like working on a frozen lake. Imagine that. Your work desk in the middle of a frozen lake. Yeah, I think that's a pretty vivid picture.
I did get a chance to try out a new style bead I had in my head. It's SOOOO pretty! I had hoped to get more made when it was 44 degrees yesterday, but I just ended up trying out some more styles to see what worked before doing a run of beads. I think this will take some more time to really refine things before moving forward. It's going to be bitter cold again the next 2 days, but it looks like we will get some more weather in the 30's this week. Sad, I know, since when did we get excited about weather in the 30's?! Lol.
Anyways, I just thought I would pop on with a report from my little winter cave.
