Where have I been?!?


I've been sucked into the year end inventory and taxes preparation. Trying to get that all in order and clean out the office and studio. Now THAT's a major task!

I've created an anti-valentine pendant. These are entitled "pins in my heart." My 14 year old was having a particularly bad few weeks and I just felt bad for him. It's tough to be a teen. Their hearts are so soft and the smallest slight can feel like needles and pins. When I went to the torch, all I could think of was how he felt. So instead of trying to put it out of my mind, I just let it in and be the inspiration for the day.

Oh, ouch! I remember feeling like I had a pin in my heart when I was a teen too. I love the way you made these hearts with the pins in them.

Sometimes great beads from from real life! Everyone can relate to that "pin" feeling. Thanks for posting, Melanie!
