Anyway, here's just a few photos of what I've been up to.... Making BEADS, lots of them. I'm making a series of "Holiday Birds". I'm pretty excited about them.
I'm also working on a set of Chanukah beads, here is a dreidel bead, one of the beads in the set...
And... a new Owlie bead! Meet Owlie Chick... I think he is pretty cute, don't you?
I've also been watching over the building of the new studio. Still so much to do!
We've had to make a LOT of revisions... and some of the costs have exceeded our budget a bit (doesn't it always go that way??? sigh). But we've been constantly reminding ourselves it is "just a studio", to try to keep our eye on the ball and keep it SIMPLE.
Here's the latest floor plans:
I noticed out back that several cobblestones had been dug up and were laying around. This area is full of cobblestones, smoothly worn stones from the glaciers that used to be here. Some are quite large. They look like dinosaur eggs!
Last week or so, I found an enormous mushroom near the cabin. It was about the size of a pie!
What incredible color and texture!
I decided to remove it so I flipped it over ("TIMBER!!!"). The underside is so amazing.
That's it for news - other than the wind storm blowing through here the past couple of days. Sounds like waves crashing on a shore. Just amazing.
