ROFL, Deb. I didn't mean that I suck at ALL beads just that I suck for not wanting to make sculptural beads. It's not the off-mandrel part of it, David. I like doing off mandrel stuff, but I'm way more interested in drawing with stringer than building shapes.

Isn't that what makes us all "special" (special ed. for my friend David ) all the different styles and likes and dislikes? I'd make many more beads if I didn't have to clean them
We're gonna have so much fun, I can't wait!!!
Felicia, thanks
So who else is going?? Inquiring minds and all that!

Deb made me cry and gave me the best early birthday present ever! I was awarded one of the scholarships and the best part is she said they really want me there and they love my work! I am thrilled beyond words and can't wait for August!

Thank you Deb! (((Hugs)))

Thanks, Dawn. Putting balls all over beads is fun. You don't have try to make it look like something recognizeable.

Jody, yay! I look forward to meeting you.

JC Herrell (who is one of the featured artist at GS West) came up to Whistler Molten Experience last weekend and gave a demo on her stringer control and enamels. If you can get into her class I highly recommend it. I will take your designs to a whole new level, and she is fun!!
I am posting pictures of what I was playing with when I got home. I haven't got there yet but I am having fun trying.

Those are so cool, Deb! I took a class from JC several years ago and am looking forward to another one. She's fantastic.

The stringers are hair thin and are a real challenge to work with but JC Herrell gives you some tips on getting better results.

Wow, awesome Deb! JC is such a kick to hang with too, she had the room next to Polly and I in Vegas, we sure had some fun! She is so talented!

Uh, David...ok, I loves ya, but...no switching sex of horse in middle of stream!

Jody and Nita, I know...it seems far away but it will be here before we know it, yay!

Dawn, I agree, Deb is way better than she thinks she is

Well, my first tomatoes are on (I will have fresh tomatoes for the first time in 15 years!) and my baby chickens are now in our coop, that was due time to get them out of studio! They sure grow fast, I think we may have a rooster in the bunch....sigh...it is the tamest one too, likes to be petted...sure has been fun and in a few months, fresh eggs!

Ah, summer, I ate the best rainbow trout in a long time, we have been doing a lot more fishing since settling in, I caught the 2 1/2 pound native trout a few miles from the new place, we had a whole stringer full!

Getting ready for class selections weekend, remember to send that tuition in right on June 1st for best choices, the info is in your May newsletter. If you haven't signed up yet, jump on in, the line up is fabulous!

Off for some sun and gardening,
Much glassy love!
deb

Deb, it's just a blink away!!
I has a happy today! 7 seahorses in the kiln! Working smaller seems to be helping my shoulder, and that in itself is a happy thing! Not sure if I'll list them or save them for Glass Stock and the Art Fair. I had so much fun last year!
So I have a ?? What's everyone doing for their Demo this year? Inquiring minds and all that
I've no clue, yet again!

Yum. I want to come for dinner, Deb. I'm making beads this weekend, paying bills, running a couple of errands. Mostly just happy to have a long weekend.

I have no clue what I'm going to demo. That's a project to figure out sometime in August.

YUM! David, when are you coming to cook all that meat?????
Felicia, would have loved your company...the ribs were perfect, they go great with my favorite beer (Overcast, an espresso stout, love dark beer!) plus the weather played nice too!

It is getting closer, 3 months to go to the best friends and ultimate glassy goodness!

This year's theme is Pirates, been working on the shirt art, simpler this year on black shirts! Got some great gag attire for Hugh and I already...he better wear it! So get your pirate on this year, can't wait to see the hats and jammies, lol!

Off to feed the chickens and fire up!

Hi Guys!
Hugh will make a great pirate and David, you're hired!

I have had a lot of calls with the frustration of my PO BOX and payments. I did this for several reasons, one of which is my mailbox is far down my street and not very safe to have lots of large checks sitting in there. Also, USPS does overnight for not much more than other companies as well as them assuring me I could sign and collect them there.

I gave this a lot of thought, also make it as fair as possible! There are a few other reasons but mostly not safe.

Next year I will have purchased a new place and we will be past this temporary hurdle

SO sorry for the hassle but at least it is only once a year!
Thanks for understanding!
deb

I had a though about Canadian folks, what if next year you mail your check early to another attendee in the states and then you can have then mail it overnight with theirs and split costs...just a thought....
And you US folks can overnight to a PO BOX with USPS no problem!

Hope this helps!
Hugs, deb

Wanted to give you all a heads up here, as I did on FB. If you are in Canada, and want to order glass, but save on shipping, have it come to my address, and I'll deliver it to GS for you! I did this last year for Becky, and it saved her some $$.
OR even if you are here in the states, and need some specialty glass, tools, or what have you for GS, I'll gladly share my address, and again, bring it to the event.
Hugs Hugs and more Hugs!

Wow! That is such a nice offer Nita! I'm going to look into that.
Canadians really pay a tonne for shipping! We have some suppliers in Canada
but not many. Some items are just impossible to get here. I've paid more in
shipping then the cost of the glass... Sad huh?
