Studio revamp

My little room I loosely call a studio is ready for a revamp. I went and bought a new window for it at the weekend - the one that's in at the moment is tiny. I'm going to have my bench moved over to the window which will give me lots more light and fresh air. This has forced me to tackle the mountainous pile of glass on my bench - something I've been promising myself to do every time I make beads. It's got to the point where I put a rod of glass down and it causes a landslide! I've already got 3 carrier bags full of rod ends, stringers and remains of rod explosions. Oh and dust - lots of dust! And that's just from the bench - I haven't even started on the floor yet. I promise I'll post some pics when it's in a fit state.

I had a nice surprise - Ali Perry (All About the Beads) sent me a Sweet Home Blogger Award. How nice of her to think of me - thank you Ali. Being a bit of a newbie where blogging's concerned, I now have to figure out what I have to do. I think I need to pass it on to 5 more people - correct me if I'm wrong someone please.

On the bead front - I put some new glass beads on the website yesterday including these Tanzanite Fantasy Pools. I handmixed the base colour for these which resulted in a gorgeous bluey purple. I'm going to get some torch time in tomorrow before I get my dear old Dad round to get started on the revamp.

Good luck with your studio revamp. I am envious, it is something I need to do as well but don't think I'm going to have the time for it for a bit.

You are going to feel a whole new refreshment from the studio makeover. Enjoy! ~Cindy Lietz
