Nothing cuter than a sleeping puppy except a sleeping cat. Just kidding Rex.
This is Annie and her big brother Beau out getting some vitamin D in the beautiful Arizona sun. He's quite a guy. He looks after her and brings her treats and toys. When Beau sees me in my golf cart he jumps in and wraps himself around me. He's a great dog. I told my husband I wanted a dog and he said we would have to build a casita. I told him I hoped he liked it out there. Ha ha ha.
Here's my other buddy Scooter. He's standing by a cactus in his back yard that had 72 blooms on it. Is that beautfiul or what. This time of year in Arizona the cacti bloom and the flowers only last one day which is sad because they are so beautiful. Scooter is a snowbird and will be going back to Illinois sometime this week. I'll really miss him. He smiles when he sees me. He's a good dog.
TINA CREATED A MONSTER
OK, Tina Holden created a MONSTER.
About a week or two ago I bought Tina Holden's http://beadcomber.blogspot.com/p/batik-tutorial.html tutorial called Batik and Shimmer and that's all I've done for 5 days. I tweak a few things each time I do it to see what I come up with and every time I do it I love it more and more and I have all these beautiful pieces and I don't think I'm going to be able to part with them.
I sent Tina an email last night and asked if there was a meeting like AA where I could go so I could stop doing this. I need a 12 step program for sure. The only thing I can tell you is that it uses Magic-Glos so I get a lot of exercise running out to the patio to put my pieces in the sun. I have one of those little UV lights but I don't like it.
This is my latest batch and now I have another one in the oven. I'm going to need a 10 gallon drum of Magic-Glos which means I'll have to get a job to pay for the Magic-Glos which means I won't have time to do clay. What a dilema.
Anyway, I think you all should buy Tina's tutorial because that will mean there will be meetings everywhere for those of us who can't stop doing this. Even my husband said they were awesome and he was glad to see I was finally getting some exercise. LOL
Goodnight Annie, Goodnight Beau, Goodnight Scooter, Goodnight Booboo, Goodnight Grandma
