Happiness IS….

Happiness is for me waking up to a kiln full of creations.  Coffee is a close second in the morning…LOL!  But when I pull my work from the day before out of the kiln you can’t wipe the smile off my face.  I have to rush them into their beauty routine right away to get them ready for their closeups.  Basically getting them off the mandrels, clean out the bead release from the holes.  The best part is putting the pieces together into a pendant.  Reveling in each new girl and her personality.  They are all unique and beautiful in my eyes.  This morning I pulled four girls from the kiln.  Here they are in all their uber cuteness!

I have also been creating my own stencils this week.  I am teaching at Whim So Doodle this Saturday and my second class is creating a Mermaid Canvas. I decided to make some stencils available for students to use for the body.  I will show them how to draw a body, but for those who just need a little confidence builder!  I am super excited to see how they work out for the students.  I still need to cut two of them.  Stay tuned for updates after the class!
