Hot, Humid, Hellish

I used to live in Houston, Texas. One of things I disliked so very much was the humidity. 80% relative humidity was a good day. Today, here on the Central Texas Flatland Prairie at the foot of the Hill Country, Houston seems like paradise. Yuck. I hate that feeling. You get out of the shower, and you need another one as soon as you walk outside. But enough of my grousing, on to better things.

I went by Pam's Friday afternoon and picked up a box of goodies for the lucky shoppers at the Fiesta Marketplace portion of Seminar. My, oh my, I want half of the box for myself. I'm bringing lampworked thimbles, blue bonnet beads (yes, by popular demand they are back!) and the most gorgeous matched pairs that would make perfect earrings. There is one pair in Pam's favorite pink that are just to die for! Oh, I cannot wait to put these out and offer them up to the stitchers!

And kits are almost done. It has been a very long time since I have had to put together so many kits in one session. 32 of them were for the classes, and the color mixtures are breathtaking, if I may say so. For inspiration, I pulled out pictures we took in 2005 when we spent Thanksgiving in Lost Maples State Natural Area. The fall colors were late, and we got some gorgeous shots. The picture of the girls on the top right was taken there.

So, I've got just a few more things to put together and price, then pack. That's it. And it has all been fairly stress free. HAH! Yeah, right. More on that when I get back!

What? You need a quote for the day? Okay, here's one from one of my favorite authors:
Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.
Ray Bradbury

And I simply like this one from George Carlin:
If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.

Muse on that for a while. And remember, don't think --- just do!
