The nice man gave me a fire red one just so I don’t forget each time I use it that I can blow up at any time.
Wasn’t that nice of him.
Actually Joe was very nice. He put my hose back on the tank for me even though he had to sign a waiver in the shop that if he exploded the company wasn’t to blame.
It’s not like the old days anymore when people just did things for other people with no thought of if they hurt their back, or blew up, etc. I do get it, but it’s a little sad that there are so many rules and regulations. We’ve kind of lost that human touch.
Joe hasn’t though :)
So I’m open for business again.
Which is great as I’ve had a little run of sales and have reached my $1,000 mark so I’ll be sending that off to Syria.
I’ve been struggling a little bit with if it’s worth it. If I’m being naive. But you know, I’m just not going to worry about it.
I’m on a mission and that’s that.
I want to share this video with you about the people who suffered the awful weather in Cornwall, U.K. in these past months.
To me this embodies the way I would choose to live.
If I wasn’t such a pessimist that is.
Or rather, oil pastel-ing.
I think this is my favourite medium. The colours are so rich and meaty.
I find it hard to get back into jewelry after an art show. It’s like I’m all jeweled out.
I did fairly well at the festival. I made a thousand dollars, which, with what I already have, brings me to fifteen hundred.
I think this time the money is going to the Water for India thing, and Syria again.
Although I’m going to check out the Indian charity a little more first. I don’t usually give to the smaller charities as they aren’t so well known.
I don’t know, sometimes I get disheartened. It all seems so little for so much, but I can’t worry about it too much otherwise my brain will explode.
And that might hurt a bit.
So, I will leave you with a picture of my son in his halloween costume.
If you see him, please take him directly to the nearest psych ward.
He needs all the help he can get.
This morning I made my $10,000 goal.
Thank you to everyone that bought jewelry from Cold Feet Studio.
I really appreciate it.
