End of September I had an operation on my left hand (I am a lefty!!) The operation (Thumb Arthritis) requires a long revalidation and the first months where not so nice.
The last few weeks I have been busy downsizing my glass studio so I can use part of it as a photography studio. I have to many tools, equipment, glass, etc so I have a lot for sale in my second hand webshop.
Being robbed of your dominant hand is difficult, but it was worse I couldn’t hold my camera and I couldn’t make beads. The camera was the first thing I picked up again after 4 months and yesterday I made a few beads!!
Clearing out a lot of stuff I don’t use any more and rearranging my vast collection of glass, takes a lot of time. And my hand is not functioning like it should so it takes some time.
Last week I got a packet from Kathy Seamonds from Creation is Messy (CiM) with 16 new colours glass. Thank you Kathy, this was a good excuse to stop clearing and moving stuff around and go sit at the torch and make some beads!!
The new CiM colours are beautiful. Here are the 16 new colours, aren’t they pretty?
So the renewal of the studio is not finished, I need to do a lot more before I can move in my professional flash lights, backgrounds etc.
But first we are celebrating Carnaval starting on Saturday!!
