Summer Is Here!

We had an unusually long spring, which was FINE BY ME!  We didn’t really get HOT hot until this week.  It really was nice weather.

Then school let out.  The daughter started her usual persistent chatter.  The pool started to become warm enough to get in.  And the temperature outside started to creep upwards….towards 100……then past 100.  We are suppose to get up to about 110 by Sunday.

I know.  It happens every year.  “You live in Arizona, so you must like the heat.”  Nope.  I don’t live in Arizona for the heat.  I live in Arizona so that my husband has a steady income, my kids can visit grandparents almost whenever they want and because it’s such a pain to move. 😛  So I brace myself for 110…..115….120 degrees.

And that is why Blaze (the torchie-poo in my studio garage) sits unattended.  No amount of portable AC can cool that little corner of my glassy world enough.  So he sits abandoned.  But I do have quite a few beads made to get me through the summer.  I plan on putting quite a few sets together (some “orphan” bead sets, bracelet/necklace sets and earring pairs) for Etsy and then some more jewelry for my website.  I have a couple custom orders to finish…..then it’s SALE TIME.

I figured that would be a really good way to help us all through the summer – with some fabulously fun, sassy and HOT bead goodies for ya.  So, I plan on getting stuff together in the next couple of weeks so that by mid-late June, I’ll have some great stuff listed.

I will be back in a couple of days to announce a chance to WIN beads/jewelry right here on my blog.  Until then – STAY COOL.

So SICK of not making beads!

It’s driving me MAD!  I was talking to my step-mom? My dad’s wife? One of my favorite people?  Anyway – I was talking to my Carol and she said that there is something to be said about “creative tension,” but you shouldn’t have to wait THIS long!!  Ugh.  It’s just so HOT, people!  SO FREAKIN’ HOT!  I know this about Arizona.  I’ve known it almost my whole life.  Why do I live here?  Why do I tolerate this Hellacious atmosphere?

Oh yeah.  Love. Huh. Whooda thunk it.

So – I live in this persistent heat box.  I can’t WAIT until October.  Okay – even September.  ANYTHING below 100 would be ‘ok.’

I haven’t figured out how to alleviate this “creative tension” I have these days, so if you’ve got any ideas, shoot ’em my way.  I REALLY wanna melt glass instead of….well….just plain melting!

ARG!  It’s Monday, too.  That doesn’t help much either.  Sorry for the venting. 🙂
