Default I freakin give up!!

I have not been in studio much since spring.....just lots of stuff in general that keeps me away from the torch until this past week. Started slow....some spacers...few little pressed things....moved on to some frit...mud....tried my stash of silver glass....no reactions and even Psych won't work and it actually is green!! Checked all the pressures and flame settings....my neutral is neutral....after 12 yrs, you would think it shouldn't be a big jump to get back in the torch saddle but it sure is!! Think I'll grab a beginning book and work my way through to see if it helps. Inspiration....please come home.....

Hope your mojo returns to you soon!

I spent 8 months away from my torch a while back, due to a broken wrist. When I got back to the torch I was completely frustrated. DH said, "Why not choose three colors and just try to make round beads in different patterns?" Sorta like the 40 bead challenge thing. I did just that...and spent a whole summer playing with black, white, and red accents. I have a really neat necklace now to remind me what to do when my mojo takes a vacation.

I will be thinking of you!

Hugs,
Helene
