Really, I am not slacking.. I am trying my hardest to create funky new things for you guys! :) I have been working around the clock and feel like I am behind which will cause me a great deal of stress Mid-May, right before leaving for Bead and Button. I have created 50 lbs of Raku goodies! Lots of Cabs! and the last 3 days spent working in Light Brown Stoneware -- I hope to get thru this bag of clay and begin porcelain by Monday. Glazing will begin after May 5th..thats when things really get tough (and messy)!
So, since I am not really blogging, have a look-see at who is blogging about me! Its a great honor to be blogged about and I hope one day to return the wonderful favor my customers have shown me with their blog love!

Til then I am getting my hands dirty! I promise!

I am so envious of all the great bloggers out there. Make something, photograph it, list it, flickr it and blog about it and when you are done blogging, twitter it. I wish I could do that everyday.. I wish I could read everyone's blogs everyday. There are a few of them that I get emailed to me whenever a new post is written.. I would love it if everyone did that! So much easier!
I finally got my a** in gear today and starting making cabochons. In an effort to be professional for Bead and Button Show in June I made 10 of each design, with some minor variations. Nothing new though - all repeats of designs from March and for me that is torturous! I have no leaves outside for me to make impressions with and my husband wont let me break anything to make good "texture" tools, anymore! LOL! That being said - I am liking what I am making and I think u will too!
The only thing I have to share is a photograph of my Paella, from my Paella Party which took place on Sunday, April 5th. I bought the pan because for some reason I had always wanted one and when Williams and Sonoma had a sale - I bought it. Then coincidently Martha Stewart had a video of her making Paella for her crew (if you haven't seen it yet, check it out -- Martha is hammered on Sangria in the beginning of the video) With some minor alterations my Paella (seafood-less because we had 2 people allergic to shellfish and 3 that can't stand the site of it) was delicious!
Happy Beading everyone..
I will post photo's as soon as I get my first kiln load finished!
