Let fire inspire

Captivated by the magic of working with glass, Rebecca Weddell creates beautiful and unique lampwork beads and offers a range of beadmaking courses.

May review

It's been an age since I've found a moment to post here in my Journal! Here's an update as to what's been going on (although admittedly it's mostly pictures of flowers!).

Lots of things have been happening - I've been very busy doing a college course, which I've been hugely enjoying, and spending lots of time in the workshop creating beads for my Etsy shop. I've got two sales/demo events coming up, two arts festivals later in the summer, and various courses here in my workshop - and as well as working towards all of those things I've been enjoying May! Late spring is my favourite time of year, and this is what it's been looking like round here over the last few weeks.

 I love the fact that bluebells aren't quite blue!

It's a bank holiday weekend and I'm doing some catching up. Today's jobs have included drafting some Etsy listings, and planning next week and next month in my bullet journal. I'm a late-adopter of bullet journalling, but it's proving extremely effective in getting - and staying! - organised. More of that next time...
