My head is a buzz with ideas!!!

All of a sudden my head is flooded with ideas and I'm frantically jotting ideas down on paper. Now not to lose said pieces of paper. LOL I need an Elaine Journal. (Grin)

The lady who bought the wine stopper at the market was estactically happy with it - that is the one photographed below. I even managed to get it all packaged. I am excited about my new packaging ideas too.

I'm going in a slightly new direction and in a couple of weeks should have something to show for it. On Wednesday I am taking up Pottery with a good friend of mine. I've been itching to get my hands stuck into some clay and it's going to happen soon. No, it doesn't mean I'm giving up glass. I'm going to be combining it and I'm seriousley hoping that what is in my head makes it into a finished piece. I can only thank Ang for the inspiration, and me being brave enough to looking at glass in a whole different way.

Now the Rand/Dollar is sadly depressing right now. It has put a hiccup in my wine stoppers!! With the Rand so weak against the dollar I might just have to go with an economical range for now. Or it could just be might 'stupid' brain thinking that using rubber stoppers is not as elegant as a metal wine stopper. What do you all think??

Hmmmm, and apparently I just laundered my ATM card. Guess I need to check my own pockets. LOL

Enjoy your weekend wherever you are. We have a birthday party this afternoon. Tomorrow is get our 'classroom' finished and hopefully some molten glass.

Chat soon............

My daughter and I visited the John Campbell school and watched a class throwing pottery... it's VERY messy, and looked back braking to me... melting glass is a cleaner way to create... HOWEVER... I too can't wait to see what you've been thinking of and will soon create

Mich, don't you love it when the ideas are coming so fast you can't write them all down?? Makes me grin ear-to-ear, just reading about it! I can't wait to see where the clay and glass take you!
