When you get that creative juice flowing

There are some days when I can go in my studio and just sit there not knowing what I want to make. Should I make skinner blends, and what colors? I will sit and think and nothing happens. So I will play a little and quit. Then there are days when I have so many ideas I don't know what to do first. I'll have so many thoughts in my brain and then they leave.
This weekend was one of those creative spurts! I played with clay all weekend and listed on Etsy and had gangbuster sales! My canes are small and usually one of a kind so my customers must know this and snatch them up! It's probably that in mind which keeps me going.
I has a custom order for Burberrylicious beads and that is a precision cane which I extrude from a clay gun. By the time I had finished my arm hurt. I need to find an easier way to do that. Carpal tunnel here I come.

I'm the same way! Sometimes the muse sits on your shoulder and other times she is on a cruise! I'm so happy you're having good sales. No one's clay beads can surpass yours for creativity and color!

I'm one of your customers who does the "snatch-n-grab" because I realize if I don't, someone else will! :D

LanyardLady is correct--your beads are a bright tapestry in creativity and color. I've scanned the Web for similar beads but I always come back to you!
