I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

I definitely recommend lampworking. You already have a kiln.. that's really the most expensive piece of equipment until you decide you HAVE to have one of the big torches. The glass is cheap and you have sooo many options in beads. But don't stop with beads. Making little figures and sculptures is really fun too. Marbles are addicting. I'm going to try vessels soon.
Let me know if you need some sources for tools, glass etc.

Thank you so much! I have a passion for glass. Colors, textures, and so many functions, it's all in glass waiting to be brought to life. Gah I can be so corny lol. Thanks for the compliment though!

OOO and I LOVE your scarves! All the colors. I'd love to try my hand at those hollow scarves. What is your favorite yarn/thread type?

Thanks for the invite Kelly!

I've been a jeweler for the last 15 years. Recently laid off, and low and behold! I have time to work on my own designs for the first time in I can't remember... I work in gold, silver and copper. Hot glass has become my passion in the last 5 years. I've been making beads from rods of colored glass, called lamp working, and recently bought some tubes of glass to work on some vessels.

I'm going to enter some pieces in a local juried art gallery/store. Wish me luck! I've never done anything like that before and I'm excited.

If anyone has any questions on projects in the jewelry or glass fields, I'll be glad to give my 2 cents. Can't guarantee that I'll have your answers, but I'll be happy to help.

Happy to be here and very motivated to get this weight down and pump out the creative energies as well.

Sincerely,

Courtney
