A DOG, A BEAD and A GIVE AWAY


I'm home from work today.  My dog Jake had me up all night as he is sick.  He had surgery two years ago for laryngeal paralysis which means that his lungs have a better chance of filling up with fluid since they are always exposed.  (I'm calling the vet once they open).  Hopefully, they will give him antibiotics and he and I will both feel better. 
Last night I was scrambling to make a bunch of beads, some for my give away this weekend and some, of course, to list.  I don't normally make this many of one style, but I was on a mission and I loved the new glaze combo.  Bill sat down with the camera and decided to take some pics of me hard at work ;o)  Not the most flattering, no studio....just me sitting at the kitchen table like I always do when I make my beads.  The downside is that I have a mess going on for a couple of days.  It's only the two of us though with the dogs and the dogs don't mind!!  I would like to talk about my studio and the one that I'll have one day, but I'm not sure that I ever will.  I like to sit upstairs, with the dogs and the tv on for sound and computer close by....  I'm a multi tasker (or a person who makes good use of her ADD) who likes to have multiple things happen at once......I don't see that changing any time too soon!!  That armoire that you see right behind me IS my studio.....Everything closes up really nicely in that!  Don't forget to comment on my April 3rd post if you'd like to be entered to win some beads....Bill is giving away a woodfired cup too!
UPDATE:  Back from vet....He's fine, but needs to lose 30 lbs...didn't realize he was getting fat....same thing that happens to me ;o)  Go figure!!??  ...Like mother like canine son...Guess he'll be eating his whole 2 cups of food a day and I'll be eating mine!  We can support each other :O)

Poor Jake!!!!!! Hope both of you are feeling better soon!!!
... And if you had a studio, you'd just fill it up like I did mine. Better off with the armoire! :)
