I have spent the last 2 days, Sat and Sun, in a lampworking bead class with Heather Trimlett. This amazes me, because, one, who can even get 2 8 hour days to just learn something they love to do and two, to be able to take a class with such an amazing bead maker.
After 2 intense days, my advice is that if you have a chance to spend time doing and/or learning something you love, it is entirely worth the investment, in both time and money.
My studio is getting pretty finished and my torch station is up and running. If you can stop by on the 2nd Friday of the month, please do.
That's all for now, it's been a whirlwind weekend, I need to rest up and clear my head, it is still spinning!
