I'm Back

Phew, its been awhile since I have posted. A few people have gotten after me so here I am. Tah dah. First of all Ive really just been busy. Bust doing what you say, hmmmm really just the same old thing. I work on some silver pieces then I torch, and torch and torch some more. I absolutely love glass. I love the whole process of melting and winding and adding colors and the list could go on.

You know when you like something so much you just cant get enough, that its almost an obsession. Well guess what glass and flame is an obsession for me. There I admitted it. Its not that everytime I sit at the torch and make beads that I make something so great I just cant wait for the world to see it. Nope not even close. There are so many beads that nobody but me and my dear sister see. You see all my uglies go to my sister and she puts them in her garden. Wow and I tell you she thinks she has a real treasure there. But my point I am trying to make is I love glass so much because every single time I learn and experience something new. Thats why I am addicted.

That is also why I lose time and forget to post on this blog. I normally torch everyday for 8-14 hours. bwhahaha Now do you get it. Yup you would think that I would have a zillion beads to sell, but I dont. I am very picky, plus if I just dont care for the set I made nope it doesnt go for sale. Sure someone else could just love it, but I dont so off to my sisters collection. I also live on a beautiful acerage surrounded by forest so I throw alot of beads into my forest.

Maybe some day along time from now someone will dig them up and say my god they sure didnt have talent back them, or do you think this artist was blind.hahha I dont know but it makes me feel good to do it. Like leaving something of me behind.

So there in short is really why I havent gotten back to this blog. Be patient with me and my glass addiction and I will try harder to post more regular.

Smiles to everyone! Jen

Now you see this entry in my blog will show Thursday, but really in my world it is still Wednesday. Yup its 3:51 in the morn bout my typical time to start thinking about going to bed.

Have been up torching glass. Making some funky heart beads and some focal beads.

If there is any too interesting I might just post a pic or two.

I will be posting a promotion for my blog very soon, so stay tuned.

Wow give me a piece of glass to torch and make into a bead no problem, give me a piece of silver and I will make that into something beautiful. Give me a computer to setup a blog, well thats a whole other story now isnt it. My god that is hard work for me. My artistic abilities do not include this electronic age thats for sure. I suppose I could have hired a teenager to do this set up for me and it would have taken them 5 minutes rather than all night for me. Oh well its done.Well mostly will be tweaking here and there.

Now to go and have some fun with the torch and flame and maybe even get a little silver time in to.
