Coffee mug in hand (and usually an over-the-shoulder totebag full of jewelry supplies that have somehow migrated downstairs), I make my way to my second-floor workroom. Sometimes my grandcat, Lily, has spent the night warming up my chair for me ... isn't that nice of her?
Lily gets moved to another place to supervise, but Kody contentedly keeps snoozing on the worktable. He's no trouble at all, unless he stretches and his looong legs knock something over!
Finally, I can settle in at my very neat and tidy (hahaha) table to work. I usually have about 80 gazillion projects in the works at a time, but there are times that I just let the beads and components tell me what they want me to do with them. There's plenty of pretty things to choose from:
The worktable turns into a big mess while I work, but somehow I manage to keep track of my beads, brass, charms, and tools. Most of the time. Well, sometimes. Now where did I put those roundnose pliers??
It's about time for a coffee break. Too bad my assistants won't run downstairs to get it for me! The coffee is hot and strong, and in my favorite mug .... featuring the 'mug' of my special Himalayan, Lynsi. You'll notice it also matches my pliers cup on the lazy susan. Cracked coffee mugs make great tool and pencil containers. Oh, there's the roundnose pliers! ;)
Usually I stop working on jewelry creations by about 9:00 a.m. or so ... the chickens are outside cackling for their breakfast, the dog has to go out, the garden needs tending in the summer, and WHAT was that crash downstairs?? TOBY ......!!! :)
Most mornings, I'll end up in the middle of a project or six, but on good days, I'll have completed jewelry pieces, such as this recent 'goddess' trio.
My workroom is my favorite place to be, a cozy beadcave where I can lose myself for hours and hours, yet find myself creatively. I'm glad you came along to visit ... thank you for sharing a morning with me. Come back to visit anytime ... the door is always open, and Toby will have the coffee ready! :)
