I had a melt down again.

The dishwasher is running, bread is baking, packages are packed, just to mail them, most work and display loaded, packed, my clothes, water bottles filled, kiln loaded and running annealing is all getting done, at the same time! Well, there goes the multitasking queen, on the way to the post office, forgetting about the most important thing. The KILN. So this is what 200 $2 dollar beads, 200 $2 dollar discs, and 400 $1 dollar beads lookalike at 1750 F, now joined for life. Ever batch anneal? Cuff yourself to the dam thing be my advice.

I got WOOD!

...might not sound like a big deal, but it is!
we need five and a half cords to survive one winter.
This is about half that.
One of our summer loved/hated activities is to stack.

It is not that easy, you know...

...everything I do, make or cook, takes a long time!
 Endless sketches, preparations, tests and mock ups.
All the bead shapes are researched, drawn out and engeneeered first.
I am slowly making progress.
Please be patient with me!
I`ll get there.

Meet The Little Red Riding Hood

Have you ever tried to move bunch of furniture, 
display and a tent on a "will-fall-appart-any-minute"
dolly with a flat tire?
In a rain storm? Never EVER again!
This is my new best friend.
Ain't she pretty?
