Busy, Busy, Busy!

I have been keeping myself busy these past three weeks – It’s almost crazy!  Believe me, I am not going to complain – not one little bit.

I want to thank all of you who tried to help me figure out what kind of Rock  it was…. I believe it may not be a rock at all, but a piece of glass that has been poured to look like a rock.  Funny if you think about it, but still the same, I like it and I am keeping it.    So thank you all for trying to help me decide what it was!  That was a lot of fun reading the comments here and on flicker.

Here are some of the cute little mice I had made up for one of my customers….   She and another designer are doing a line for 3 Blind mice.  That was a hoot trying to figure out how to make the mice seem blind!

Blind mice by you.


Then another customer need a few beads – like 200 of the first five strands of beads!!  Yes, that was a lot of cane work and a lot of beads to roll out!

just a few beads  by you.


and last, but not least I also need to get a few sets of Flowers and matching spacer beads and matching Buds off:

shades of Blue Flowers by you.


It’s been fun!  and it’s been busy!!  I have flowers in shades of Red to finish up, plus working on some flowers in shades of white, and a dark pink/mauve color… they are turning out so very pretty!  I can not wait to get them finished.


With doing all of these beads, I have learned so much!!  I have NEVER wrote out recipes for my clay… now I am wishing I had!   I was not even half way through an order and ran out of a color!  I was STRESSED to say the least!   I just reasured myself that changing one color for the set will not upset the whole set of beads – they are still going to match because the beads will still have the same colors, but I assure you, that was a turning point for me!   And a little friend of mine gently reminded me to do the same, (thanks Leah!!  I don’t know what I would have done with out you my dear sweet sister!!) 


I also have learned to make bigger canes…. give me a lot more respect for those MONSTER canes you see on video and that you see Jana, and Cat working with!  All I can say is WOW girls – I don’t know how you do what you do without distorting more of the cane!   If I could I would just hug you and tell you, ” JOB WELL DONE! ”   I do now, have a greater understanding and a little bit more knowledge, but then again, my “big cane” is not even a 1/3 of how big their Monsters are, so my knowledge is only a fraction of theirs…  PC, it’s such a wonderful medium to work with – always learning something new!


Well, I am off to make some more flowers!


Happy Claying!!  :0)

    Love the blind mice! Too cute! Gorgeous beads and flowers also!

    I never kept track of my color recipes either until recently….had too many requests for the same colors, so now I’m much better at writing things down. 🙂
