We are all good sick and tired of this polar vortex, endless winter. Every view out the window for months has been the dormant brown landscape and various stages of snow. Presently, the thought of making a brown or earth tone glass creation is more than I can bear. Seems like the only thing I am interested in this month is flowers. I'm obsessed with flowers and cherry blossoms at the moment. If I can't get them in life for a while longer, by golly I'll create them in the studio. Beach-themed beads have been another therapeutic endeavor. I'm counting the weeks until summer. Flip flops, barbecue, flowers. Heck, I'll even battle the humidity and the mosquitos with a little less complaining this year.
