My bead partner for the Bead Soup Party is Melissa Lynch Mesara. I am so excited. Melissa is a lampwork and metal artist aka the One Earred Pig. I think Lori put us together because of our blog's names, LOL.
I spent time looking around on her Pinterest boards. We have a lot in common - we both like Dr Who, Steampunk, the Muppets and get a kick out of Zombies (Braaaaaaaaains). I am new to Pinteret and so far I was focusing on the Polymer, jewelry, and color. She had so many interesting boards that it inspired me to expand. I have added Dr Who and "V for Vendetta" boards. I also saw that she had a "Pinterest" button on her blog. I am so pleased that I was able to figure out how to add one to my blog.
I am spending way too much time on Pinterest. I should be working on my beads for the bead exchange.
I had started making some on Saturday. I got the veneer made and applied. The beads were cured and I was going to work on sanding them on Sunday. But the best laid plans and all that ... Saturday night I went out to dinner. Jen and I went to the Cheesecake Factory (yummmm). There was a long wait but since we had not seen each other in several months, we didn't really mind. We went to find a seat outside. It had been raining (duh - it's Seattle). I wanted to insure that my chair wasn't wet, so I ran my hand over the seat. Sharp pain ... blood every where. There was a broken piece of glass embedded in the cane work. And, of course, I found it.
So, now I can't sand anything till the cut heals. I am having to regroup and think of a bead design that won't require sanding. Don't have that much time to think, as they have to go out next week.
