Let's face it, we've all had those days when you just don't want to be bothered and you are completely annoyed at everything. I realized this morning while driving my kid to school that I must be having one of those days. I guess it's a sign when you see kids in the hallway and you just want to ask them, "What are you looking at?" and when you are complaining that your kid closed the car door too hard when you did it exactly the same way. Or when you get annoyed with the lady who is in a hurry in the car behind you and you purposely decide to go as slow as you can so she can have an awful day too. I promise, I'm not a horrible person and I usually don't act like scrooge but I'm entitled to one day every now and then, right?
On a happier note, my trip to the Pittsburgh Glass Center was a blast. Several artists set up booths to sell their glass art. We also watched a group make a huge glass Christmas stocking that took about 2 1/2 hours to create with the help of five people. These guys reminded me of a doctor doing surgery. They all seemed to work so well together and could anticipate each other's next move. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the completed piece since they only held it up for like 15 seconds and I didn't have my camera ready and they said it would take about 14 hours for it to cool enough to show. Darn!
I have some new items to list soon but I still need to take photos. I feel like I've really been dragging my feet lately. I'm having a tough time selling although I've tried different ideas to bring in more sales. If anyone has constructive critism they could offer me I would love the advice. Don't worry, I don't get my feelings hurt that easily and I'm very open to suggestions. You gals have been down this road and you know what works.
I also need advice on another subject. I'm asking for tools and books for Christmas and I'd like to know what tools you use the most and why. I am definitely interested in metal/wire working tools but I don't know which ones I would get the most use out of and which ones are really worth the money. I love your suggestions! :)
Ok, I'll do my best to change my attitude today. Maybe a little piece of chocolate will help. Or maybe a whole box of chocolate. ;) I hope you enjoy the day!
