I worked over the weekend which was pretty quiet as weekends go. I'm making more saddles, just because I feel like making them right now, I have more avenues I want to explore, more ideas I'd like to see come into fruition. I was humbled yesterday when I gumped a ring that was nearly finished, nothing like spending HOURS on a half melted piece of silver. I brought it in to show my husband who understands completely, having whole kiln loads of pottery fail in the last process. I tell you sometimes this kind of work will bring you to your knees but if I don't keep challenging myself, there would be no fun or stimulation in it either.
What to do? My husband always has good advise......"when something fails, make two more" I like that advise and I plan to follow it.
Vetten def. ; I cut hair, people hair. I taught myself mostly by watching other hairdressers when I get mine cut. I don't really like cutting other peoples hair, it's a big responsibility but people like me to do it. Why, because they can sit in my garden and watch the hummingbirds while I snip. They don't have to sit inside smelling toxic chemical fumes while reading People Magazine under florecent lights. (now I want me to cut my hair :) One of my good friends is German and when I cut his hair he always asks if I would like him to "vetten" (wet) his head.
*off to make two more....
