Weekend Update and Catching Up, March 24, 2013

I didn’t drop off the face of the Earth. I don’t have any good excuses for neglecting my blog other than “I just didn’t feel like it.” Until this weekend, I hadn’t done much of anything craft-wise for about a month. It was a combination of laziness and gaming. I’ve been playing the new Sim City game. Maybe you saw something about that in the papers because the launch of the game was a disaster. I’ve looked forward to this game for a long time. Instead of it tasting like rainbows and unicorns, it tastes like… Well, “Sim Shitty.”

So, onto the weekend update. Easter is next weekend and I still hadn’t used my new egg-shaped bead roller thingy. But first I had to do my least favorite part of bead making: clean and dip mandrels. It helps a little that I had some entertainment while I was doing it.

It was a good day at the torch. With warmer weather, I had far less to worry about with shocky glass and breakage and things just flowed.

Here they are all made up into jewelry.

So, that was it for the weekend.  Hoping to get back out and torch at least once more before Easter, but with my goal met, it’s going to be hard to get motivated.  I want to find a good craft fair to sell at so I should start building a stockpile.  Maybe that will be enough to motivate me. 🙂

Until later… Peace.
