a lot of back thinking and self reflection today....goodness knows self reflection and remembering is a great thing but since that's what I did the vast majority of the day I'm now exhausted by it...
I've been having to write a few words about myself as an artist and its been super difficult, especially today for some reason? oh well hopefully it'll pass....
todays bead was made with a small scrap of fabric that came from one of my favorite blankets as a child....seemed most fitting with all the recollection and self evaluation lately.

Bead 685

I literally jut saw the fasted spider ever scurry across my bed...while I was in it....not a big spider...but it's freakish speed was enough to scare the bajebies out of me....I killed him on accident afew moments after that...and now I'm scared his super fast mourning family will come aft me now....yes I'm still discussing a spider who was probably the same size as a penny...but I'm paranoid about weird dumb stuff..most of today was occupied with nothing, I have to force myself a good "rest day" or I'll end up feeling worse then before whatever I did happened. It was a gray day inside and out , I tried to do activities that would cheer me up but unfortunately didn't go past just being there...
Tiny Yellow bead seemed like the color of the day...

(Still haven't got my act together with organizing and finding my cords and such to do a proper post here  but there's always really good hope for tomorrow )

Bead 684

Still in post event recovery, the skin on my back and arms are pinkish and is slowly becoming a darker brown shade...I tan oddly for a Latina, instead of automatically becoming a more dark brown I transitions from pink to golden slowly. I dunno why, it's just always been that way so I'll probably be a partially pinky squishy person for about a day more till I solidly turn a darker shade...all day was occupied trying to become a person again. I'm sore and swollen and stiff, like a little human husk (that's at least what I've been referring to myself as since yesterday) but I am happy to say for the most part I'm in better spirits, still a bit bummed out about my financial status but it will all work itself out eventually...I'm a optimist...a begrudging optimist...but I try and I'm happy so I guess that's what counts?
Pinkish brown bead


Saturday, June 15, 2013

Bead 683

My event is over and I made 13$, not bad, and kinda what I expected to be honest...I'm different and I got tons of compliments of how cute, cool and creative my stuff was...just not many buyers which is okay.
