Hey where did the summer go?

The best of intentions sometimes have the worst of outcomes. The frequency of my blog posts has not improved!  lol

It is nearing the end of October and although Michigan is being blessed with some warm days the turning leaves are saying a different story.  Pumpkin Spice is everywhere and I just finished chairing the Bead Bonanza booth for SMGBG.  It must be fall!

My position as President for the ISGB is taking up some time and I am learning a great deal.  Just like any other large group being on the BOD is less artsy and more business but I am enjoying learning about the group and want to help it continue to grow and thrive.

The big Glass Act show 'Winter Wonders' is on November 4th and my beads will be there with my daughter Samantha running my table.  This is my favorite show of the year because it is about old friends and great art.  We have a steady stream of glass lovers at the show and in between the business we spend time with our friends.  It is a great time.

Lately my attempts at making great glass art had resulted in some less then beautiful pieces but I am determined to master some of the techniques I admire.  In September I took a class with Corina Tettinger  and I am inspired to work on some fundamentals. 

Hoping to sell a bit more next year as my daughter Allison is getting married and we have a wedding in August to pay for.  :)  These are happy times indeed.

Hope that if you stumbled upon this post that you are have a creative and happy fall!.
