This week is unusual for me...time away from the studio

Well it is official, I am taking a week away from everything to spend with the family.... away from the daytime IT career and away from my glass studio.

I think this is the first time in 3 years... and the first few days were hard to get used to..

Had a great time on Saturday catching up with some bead colleagues at the Toronto Bead Society fall show. Great to see Sue Hood (Glassharp), Stephanie (the Dixon Chick) and Diane Henry-Baratta. Stephanie and Diane were the first to teach me how to crochet beads and wire together at last year's show. That was lots of fun!

Sunday, took in a show... Rock of Ages.. I will have to say, it was great, the music was a fun ride through the eighties and the cast didn't take themselves so seriously that it was full of laughs too. I have to give a shout out for Aaron Wampole as Lonny. For those in Canada, Aaron was a runner-up in Season 3 of Canadian Idol, so it was great to see him in this production as it proves that a little break and lots of confidence can get you into show business.

Although I am away from the studio, there were a few new items posted last night on Ebay, including  a set of orphans, so be sure to check them out. Click on the icon at the top right of this page.
