News from the Hot Spot

"Grape Tornado", handcrafted pendant with fine silver decorative bail (SOLD).
Don't you love how this bead is totally camouflaged in the iris?

"Age of Aquarius Rising" focal bead, now in my Etsy Shop.

"Acrobatic Hollows", hollow coordinated lampwork beads, now in my Etsy Shop.

It's been a busy start to the month. First there was the Lampwork Etc. Street Team sale on Etsy, lots of new work and show preparations, and yesterday a supplies trip to the San Mateo Gem Show. I got some kyanite that's just out of this world gorgeous.

We've had incredible weather lately - yesterday it was 85 degrees. I think the weeds in the neighbor's field have grown a foot or two in the last week, I swear.

Time to return the house to order, and do some pruning. I have a Cecile Brunner climbing rose that's trying to take over the world.

Finally, check out this video presentation on ecogeek that talks about our nation's CO2 emissions. In this project (named Project Vulcan), scientists at Purdue University used atmospheric models to track CO2 gas production from all types of sources. In this time lapse video you can see how the gas production ramps up each day to a maximum, and then subsides as our industrial society returns home. Sobering.
