and (un)fortunately I can't share any of the details. I usually love my day job but this was a week where I wished I only worked with clay, not people. I find it very difficult to deal with situations where bad things happen to children. So, in an attempt to avoid thinking I spent some quality time with sugar and then to undo all that damage I bought some new shoes and started running...well, I ran...we'll hope that I can keep it going when I'm not having to do it in order to empty my brain.Moving on... Gunilla sent me these lovely photos to show what she did with her Cerulan Batik Leaf Pendant... Didn't she come up with a gorgeous combination? I love the surprise of the stones in the back.
We took a fun little road trip yesterday to Julian and back through the Laguna Mountains. Julian is all about the pie, which we all sampled. Apple pie is usually the big draw but I couldn't pass up strawberry-rhubarb! We also went through a very rustic little gallery/shop cluster that was an old little house and renovated workshop type of building but the highlight was the pair of beautiful chickens that just hang out between the two buildings. Can you see them digging away in the photo? Unfortunately they're about the same color as the mix of leaves on the ground so you can't see their big fluffy feathery feet!
I have lots of glazing to do today (and a batch of lemon curd to whip up). I have to replenish my supply of bead caps since they were featured in Interweave's Beads 2010. I also just received my copy of the newest issue of Bead Trends...my Frog Queen bracelet made it in with a really lovely photo (as always from the BT folks).
All righty then, off to squeeze some lemons...
