Sleepless in Georgetown

Last night was rough.  I  went to sleep at 11:30, up at 12:00, back to sleep, then at 1:30, I was wide awake.  So many thoughts were running through the brain.  New pieces of jewelry I wanted to make, regrets about not improving my skills over the years, books I want to read, people I have met, quilt designs that I want to convert into beaded patterns, the CATS driving me crazy ( Tom's cat Emma is visiting Marvin right now). finally got back to sleep around 5:00 , then back up at 7:30.
       I came to the conclusion that I don't like my blog profile, so today, I am going to work on changing it.  Also I need to work on putting together kits that I want to make. This afternoon, we are going to work in the shop, cutting glass for fusing, practicing with lampworking , and I am going to shatter a plate then grind the edges to make some cabs.  I just hope the plate shatters the way I want it to. Finally, I am going to work on my Esty account.
       I though that I would share some pictures on my post today.  Last month I was involved with a Facebook Designer Challenge sponsored by Bead & Glass Boutique( ).  The designers bought a LisaPetersArt kit from them and then created a piece of jewelry.  This was the first time I bought something sight unseen. Bead & Glass Boutique posted the pictures on Facebook and followers needed to 'LIKE" their favorite piece. Everyone's pieces were wonderful so I was surprised that mine was the favorite.

The kit had the five donuts, two copper findings and the Lisa Peters cab, we had to use 75% of the kit so I did not use the copper findings and  I supplied the other materials.  I was amazed to find that I had other ceramic pieces that matched the donuts in my stash.  There was a tiny dip in the cab- perfect for a crystal but I put a seed bead in it instead. Thank Amy at Bead & Glass Boutique for sponsoring the challenge.
