So, I guess you’re wondering where I wandered off to, eh? Well, it’s been such a crazy busy week here, and much of what I’ve been doing has been un-photograph-worthy, and frankly, really boring to talk about.
One noteworthy thing I did do, was teach a class at the local library on Thursday evening. And I have the pictures to prove it.
It was open to kids grade 6 and up, and we had 5 or 6 of them, along with a handful of younger kids who were accompanied by their mothers. I think some of the mothers had as much fun as the kids did.
I showed them how to do simple millefiori like striped loaves, jellyrolls, and striped jellyrolls, and an easy flower cane. We then built a few beads using their canes and some old boxes of my own canes that I never use anymore.
It was a 2-hour class, and since it was my first time, and I was pretty much just winging-it, we went a bit over, and didn’t have enough time to actually string the beads onto anything. If there’s a next time, I’ll be sure to watch the clock a little better.
All in all it was a good experience, and I’ll probably do it again.
Everything else I’ve done this week has been along the lines of trying to get this pixel to line up with that pixel in both major browsers, or food shopping, or whirlwind (uh-oh, unexpected company is coming!) cleaning and I don’t really want to bore you with any of that.
Next week will be more interesting here. It will have to be! I’ll be unleashing my new website design on Monday morning (assuming those pixels cooperate), and somewhere in there I have a skirt to sew for a little friend, and I’d like to make a few patchwork bibs to bring to a baby shower Wednesday night. And it would be nice to find some fun summer activities to do with my little men.
Actually, I’m just looking forward to having a week where my nose isn’t in the laptop quite so much! Balance. Balance is key 🙂
