Studio Musings

Happy, Happy, Happy Day

I made it into the studio today!  Last night, I told a friend I was bound and determined that today would be the day.  Curious, she asked what I had planned.  The truth was, I didn't really know; my only true plan was to walk through the door.  Just snatching the time to do that has been difficult enough this spring.  Whatever I did once there would be gray.

The way things have been going.  Just showing up would be enough.

But as it turns out, I did end up doing a bit of something.  Decided it needed to be a play day, so I spent it making a bunch of little rings.  And since it's Bead Table Wednesday, I thought I'd share a shot of my table, just as I finished up my fifth (and last) ring of the day.

Like the brightly colored little cup bowls?  I picked them up as Safeway earlier this week.  They had them on sale as part of their 'picnic ware'.  Also bought a platter that I can use as a beading table when on the go and some smaller square plates (you can see the little plates in my first picture).  Gotta love the season!  Picnicware is perfect for the studio - durable and brightly colored.

And here's a closeup of my new rings, with a bead tube as a handy ring display.  So, nothing big, nothing fancy.  But sometimes it's enough just to play.

  1. You are totally right. Sometimes it's enough to just get to play a little. I love simple rings like this. Your colors are great!
