Mom is coming in today and then we start at the Tucson Bead shows....drroooolllllsss. I finally cooked my dragons & they look awesome!!!! HOORAY!

To keep up my spirits, I have discovered that I have to do creative things every day. Or if the sun will finally STAY and then do creative stuff a several times per week, I am much better. I really like to know how I could stay so postive in MN with the number of gray yucky days!!! Hopefully I will be able to meet some of you at the various shows here in Tucson, that would be totally cool:)

another day.....

Well, I must be incredily nervous about cooking my polymer clay dragons cause I chickened out again!!!

I got my airline tickets to MarsCon in MN this March. I will freeze but looking forward to seeing everyone! I haven't seen them in 2 years!

It is cold..........very very cold to a former Minnesotian and the blood has thinned out. The mountains are full of snow but the humidity is up so I really am feeling it, yuck. I am cooking dragons tonight. I chicked out until now but I can't wait anymore!!! I want to take pictures too but hopefully will get to that this weekend between beads shows! I can't believe it is the Tucson bead show again! While mom is here working on wedding stuff as well.

When I get home, the sun isn't in a good position and all the pictures, no matter how much I light the piece up still looks really dark.

Quiet and yucky day

It is 57 degrees here in Tucson and it has been raining. It looks like it may rain times. I like that it gets stuff green but EVERYONE gets moody when weather like this comes. We are used to sunshine all the time.

Made another dragon, these are fun but it takes me at least a couple of hours to make one. I need to get cracking on more jewelery type items that are much faster to make.

I have been playing with my polymer clay. I purchased a book by Christi F about making dragons so I am using her tips but styling them the way that I like. I am planning on bringing these to MarsCon where hopefully I have a dealer's table. Going to e-mail again because I haven't heard anything....

I am tired. We had some massive rain storms last night with the wind howling away. The noise kept waking me up.

The Vikings won against was so sweet.

I need to get on the picture taking goal because I am not doing it at all, bad me.

Too long

Man, I have been so busy during the last part of December, I haven't had a chance to blog until today. Holidays are always busy at day job and then we passed an inspection today! Whew...

I haven't made anything new and I need to get going on taking pictures. I have been so busy that I get home, eat, read and go to bed. That has been my life lately, incredibly boring:)

So I need to get back on track on my New Year's resolution so thus me blogging a little:)
