Bead 667 Jello and mellow

got a new toy in the mail today, a glorious big guy named mellow:

"Mellow is your gentle companion.  Although he looks sad, Mellow is quite the optimist.  His wonderful taste for finer foods and weaknesses for chocolate and desserts explains his rather large size…or does it?  Neighborhood kids will not come close to his house.  Rumors fly as to what ingredients are ACTUALLY in his desserts.  People shut their blinds and lock their doors when he walks by.  Mellow is the stuff that urban legends are made of… But do not be afraid if you come across the lumbering beast.  It is best you whisper and wave “hello”."

I got him for just 10$ and I have to say he and his jello are quite glorious and dapper...haha

Bead 652-664

finally fully fledged and back online!!!I never in a million years expected for it to take this long and for there to be such an abrupt pause in blogging and bead making, I sincerely apologize and promise that I will try my damnedest to never let it happen again. allot has happened in these almost 2 weeks.
-I started new pieces
-got my haircut
-went on an adventure of sorts to drop off a sculpture to be displayed at a public library in a neighboring city
-was a pen pal to some great online homies while I was off the grid, and received some really awesome stuff in exchange
-dealt with wisdom teeth pain and a random sporadic rash
-had a yard sale
-got glasses
and allot more...
most of my beads ended up being artsy or representative colors of the day

happy to be back and hopefully there will be some dope days and beads to come!

Still technical difficulties...BLAH!!!

Hello there wonderful and beautiful people, I hope you have been well and I have a few stories and beads to share once my technical difficulties subside, I got Internet back a day later then expected and unfortunately have been having some super patchy wifi since then! Boo....I know, beads have been made though and I will hopefully be back in full run by Monday!
A thousand apologies again and thank y'all for being so cool and awesome!

Bead 651 Sorry :(

Sorry for all the technical difficulties lately, I know it sucks but unfortunately we are switching cable providers and I will be offline most likely till the 21st of May :(
The reason for such glitchyness here with posting (like all the photos and ect.) lately has been because our current cable providers have decided to start messing with it ahead of time, the TV, Phones and of course Internet have been horridly spotty and have unfortunately been rampant lately when I'm trying to post photographs of my beads and my day.... I thought you deserved a sincere apology and explanation of why I'll be AWAL for a little while, beads will be made and documented within the down time and posted as soon as I get Internet back! I really hate having to do this but unfortunately don't have much of a choice in the matter, I've tried conecting to neighbors wifi and am no longer able to catch a signal from them and unfortunately because of my glorified shut-in status it's not like I can go else where to work...I'm going to miss you guys!! And miss posting here but what's done is done
I'm going to try to keep myself busy with projects and sending mail to friends that I would normally communicate via Internet with.
Grr, Internet is messing up again....missing photos will be posted later :(
Artsy orange bead today since I found an old project that'll be most likely put in a show soon

Bead 647

Pretty good day. Slept in late, long walk, started another painting, went into the studio to collect some left behind supplies and also to do some financial aid paper
But it's okay! Artist meeting, coffee and acting like a total goof with my buddy during said meeting...oops! It's not that we do it intentually it just happens I guess? Anyhoo pancakes after the meeting (I believe the main reason we were acting a fool is because we were so hungry?)
Good mail day too, I got a BIY mini tea figure to customize for a contest
BIY head bead today
Laptop is acting derp photo tomorrow!

Bead 646

today was my first official day of summer was say the least
my mind still hasn't fully adjusted to the idea, still got up super early, the only main difference now is I'm much happier and manic, but for the most part I've been able to keep myself in check.
I started walking and or doing yoga in the morning and I think that has been able to mellow me out a little bit so I wont get to the usual "holy cow I cant feel the ground anymore because the world is such a magical place of possibilities and I have to get every single thought in my head made" kind of mania that I usually experience post-semester.
painted with watercolors for the first time in a long time today...was pretty satisfied with the finished piece.

Bead 645

Today was my last day of school!! Yay!!! ^___^ final exam taken and passed and the glorious folks that I am lucky enough to be friends with sent me some really awesome vibes.

All and all a good day, I've already started spinning again, finished a painting, sculted some tiny monsters for later, straightened up my workspace, taken a good nature walk in between the rain (haven't been able to do that in a really long time)
Happy to start a new summer and new tomorrow

Bead 643

Got the sneezes, today was disappointing to say the least. Hurt myself trying to finish a project that I was supposed to have critique on....I got it done just didn't have critique for it so there wasn't much of a purpose for me doing the rest of the day was mainly spent feeling gross  and moderately upset about that, I did hang with a friend a little after that but still tired, sneezy, and coughy and unfortunately it still just Monday.
Tiny flesh colored bead today, in homage of my poor hurt hands

(due to really janky conditions tonight no photo posting tonight)

Bead 641

Most of the day was spent in mental and physical recovery of the super long day yesterday, got slightly discouraged and didn't really feel like doing much of anything today...I dressed up as a ghost for a little while...chilled out upside down for awhile, made soup
Then later on tonight I finally started to some artwork again, little bit of sculpting and painting with actual acrylic paint instead of  just my usual craft paints...

Bead 640

Super super super super tired.
Helped out at an indie market for 7ish hours....long time
I sold two creatures: Kevin and fungus for brains
Normally I let whoever gets one of my creatures to name and/or create a back story for them, but this guy is special: this is Kevin a sad slug that always wanted to be a cat when he grew up (of course slugs don't become cats when they grow older but no one had the heart to tell Kevin that so instead they made him cute little kitty ears)
Kevin inspired bead today
