KM&V Countdown - week 4

This week was very productive, and the weekend had a to-do list like you wouldn't believe. I am so ready to sleep, and I'll leave you with theese pictures of what I got made.

The pods by the way, are on a base of opal yellow. I got some after reading a lot of raves on Lampwork Etc., but I really like ivory a lot better since it fumes over so nicely. I'll have to go back and search to see what the excellence of opal yellow is, because so far I don't see it.

I also made and cored this bead. It is a birthday present for my mother, and the colour of the 'eyes' came out especially well and shines when seen from the side. I am very pleased with it :)

That is all for now, see you next week,

KM&V Countdown - Week 5

I've had an excellent week!

Two mornings I got up at 03 in the morning to torch before going to work. It is a wonderful way to begin the day, though it does leave me quite exhausted the day after, so two days were all I could manage. I will practice going to bed early, and getting up even earlier, in the weeks to come. It seems like my best shot at getting things done.

This week I made lovely autumn leaf pendants and goddess pendants. I have a bunch more in the kiln from today, along with one large lady. Yay!

Goddess and Leaf Pendants.
And see those tabs under the banner? I put up those this week too, and am working on a gallery tab. It will be quite nifty in the end :)

Have a great week,

KM&V Countdown - Week 6

Oh my, that title is scaring me.
Next week will be worse, as the final month creeps closer and closer. So I'm just going to hide this time, and show you a picture of a little guy that visits our garden instead.

He is about the size of two apples and very cute. We don't really know if he is a 'he', we just decided to call him that. He is not supposed to be out in the daytime, but he seems fine, healthy and curious, so I think he is alright.

Cute little creature, isn't he?

'Till next week,

KM&V Countdown - Week 7

Hooray! I did manage to get that blurp written, and on time too :) This is something that really, really doesn't come easy to me, and I am happy to be done for now.
I also finished a few pendants and shot a picture for the catalogue. This is one of the pendants, with Clio looking all ethereal.

Hmm, what else? Not much I'm afraid. The whole write and worry routine took up a lot of time, and I have spent the weekend reading 500+ pages of fiction as a reward.
Now it is time for some serious torch action in the coming weeks, but for now - bedtime!

Bye for now,
