I suppose this is the time of year.
It tends to happen in January, February,
well, it can happen at any time,
but I think that in hook of winter doldrums,
I find that I lost my mojo because my muse is vacationing somewhere without me.
I am assuming she's in Mexico or somewhere that there is more warmth than in Minnesota in January.
I have been on and off the torch since early January.
(Actually more off than on.)
That didn't seem to help much.
Then I got sick.
That didn't help at all.
It actually took a lot for me to return to the torch.
Good thing it's cold.
I am much warmer when I torch.
what about my mojo?
What about my muse?
Well, neither one has returned, so I was forced to go back to Square two.
What is Square two?
Square one was learning to make a donut shaped bead.
Square two is using simple techniques to decorate a bead.
For the last two days, I have been making fritted beads.
Take a look!
I kind of like these!!!
Maybe my mojo is coming back?
We'll see, but these were fun to make.
