Final Countdown Week

This week is my last big push before I head out to Milwaukee.  I'm trying to "make stuff" while I get everything organized, and I'm also teaching 2 classes this week.  I sure hope I can get everything done!  I'm also working on putting some new kits together - I plan on having them at the show, but they aren't ready for prime time yet.  That's my biggest project for this week, so wish me luck!

Here's more of what came out of the kiln this morning - I was definitely in an earth tone mood yesterday.  

I'll be on the torch again later this week, and I think I'll focus on some blues and purples as well as some other focal beads.  I don't have many tree beads left, so there should be a few more on the horizon.  I'll also have plenty of jewelry with me at the show - earrings and pendants, bracelets and necklaces, and even some brooches.  And embellished vessels, yes!  How am I going to carry all of this stuff on the plane with me?  Sometimes I wish I had Felix the Cat's Magic Bag of Tricks.  Oops... I'm really dating myself with THAT statement.  :-)

Now it's time to get ready for my class.  Have yourselves a happy and creative day!

Thank you, Marcy and Pam! I've got most of it packed (not taking many clothes - hope the weather isn't all over the place!). Now if the security folks don't drop my bags I'll be all set!
