a week-end to myself...

this week-end is the first week-end i've had to myself in so long that i can't even remember...  i turned off my cell phone, cancelled all plans and just... did nothing...  nothing, that is, but anything i felt like doing...  i've been making necklaces and trying to perfect my technique... these little guys have been getting a lot of attention and i haven't even officially introduced them to the world yet!  i'm finishing up a good amount of them today and then i'll have to spend the week writing descriptions and taking photos of my work... i'm going to offer a small amount first in my etsy store to see how they do and i'll be having a giveaway on my blog too... (shhh!  its a secret...)   i'll let you know a few days ahead of when i'll be doing that...  its going to be so fun!  i can hardly wait!!!  :o]
i went on a walk this morning down to the beach...  its kind of grey and sunny and cool...  here are some photos from my walk...  and YES!!!  thos…

learning curve...

focus for the week... i finally got my "glamour" glaze (it only took two days but it seemed like an eternity to me!) from Annie Howes (thanks Annie!!). I love this glaze very much because it also works as a glue for my necklaces and i highly recommend this product to anyone who is making glass tile jewelry right now. :o)

i'm finding that with this new adventure comes a little bit of a learning curve for me... each piece i make i learn more and want to make another one to do it even better... i've decided to make my first batch of necklaces into magnets for our refridgerator because i've come up with an even better and more perfect way of making these necklace that i'll soon have for sale... i don't want to put out a product that i'm not 100 percent happy with so i don't mind making people wait just a little bit longer before i start to fill my etsy shop (sorry!).

i truly love being able to make something from my artwork that i can have around …
