Treasures you will find! Aarggh!

I feel like I have to apologize about the cheesy title! I don't know what came over me!

While out and about in Etsy land, trying to put together a last minute Treasury for the Fire Divas Team...... Click Here!



I came across this eye pleasing pleasure treasure made by Giapet at Fire-n-Sand Lampwork & Pandora Style Beads & Glass Art



This is one of the many beautiful treasures you will find in her Etsy and her Artfire!

ABS Carnival Bloggers - Passion

The other day I finally got up to the shop, with high expectations of experimenting with new colors and creating the most fabulous beads.



In the end I only made three beads that did not cut the mustard, and ruined 4 to boot! Frustrated by the outcome of the experiments, I had to call it a day.

What is it that makes us artist tick? Why is it that no matter how many "Bad Bead Days" we may have, we always jump back on that horse?



It's passion! The deep undying passion we have for our art and creating it! Such a deep love that no matter how many "bad bead days" we may have, we just can't help but long to create more!

Whole Lotta Love by Holly's Folly Glass



While creating you feel a peaceful almost trance like state of meditation. A higher state of awareness takes over and you are one with your creation!

From the first time a design "Pops" into your head, to actually perfecting it and declaring it finished, there is passion guiding you through your artistic journeys!
