*swoons* ... that's gussied plenty, pretty Sharon - MoTO: Team Marina
Tsk, tsk MoTo. .... Auto correct gotcha :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
MoTO is blowing smoke at some Sharon chick :-D - Shannon - GlassMistress
He's like that, you know. - LB: Unable to Can
Yeah, I know. Likes him anyway ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Agreed. - LB: Unable to Can
Damn. Sorry pretty Shannon. - MoTO: Team Marina
No worries. Sharon and Vicky are names I answer to :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
:) ME TOO! huh, what a coincidence. - MoTO: Team Marina
Teeny whale bead :-)

SQUEE - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
His color is perfect :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Oh my effing god I want him so badly right now. PLEASE TELL ME HE'S IN THE STORE. - Hookuh Tinypants
Hookuh, he's not :-( but I do know where you can get one, LOL. I was going to do them in pairs for $14 but singles are ok too. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would totally take a pair of teeny whale beads. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Would you like them as earrings? (French hook) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Totally. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Ooooh! I want to order some as earrings, too. :) - LB: Unable to Can from Android
Okeedokee. $17 for earrings (normally $20), I'll pay the shipping and you choose sterling or surgical steel hooks. Sound fair? - Shannon - GlassMistress
those are cute - so wait, you have a storefront somewhere? Can I have the link? I really like some of the stuff I've seen you post and I'd love to watch what you have for sale - there've been a few pieces in the past that I thought would be possible gifts for folks. :) - ellbeecee
Sounds totally fair! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! I'll get them made up this weekend and send you a PM when they are ready. Duncan thanks you! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Huzzah! (What's the difference between sterling and surgical steel as far as my ears are concerned?) - LB: Unable to Can
There is a slight difference in color, the surgical steel is grayer and the stearling bright silver. Some people are allergic to silver so I keep the steel on hand as an option. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I can go either way though I find that I get zero irritation with surgical steel whereas for some reason, once in a blue moon, sterling will cause me slight irritation (itchy piercings). Much appreciate that you offer these options! It's so hard to find cute earrings that aren't attached to cheap metal hooks. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I don't think I'm allergic, but I'll go with the steel. :) - LB: Unable to Can
I dont get much call for the surgical steel but like you, people seem to appreciate having the choice. THANK YOU BOTH! Very much!!! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Thank YOU, crafty lady! *hugs* to Duncan! - LB: Unable to Can
If either of you get your works of art before i get my snaggletooth fish you're both getting kicks to the ovaries. :) - Steve C Team Marina
Steve I sent you a convo this morning about said fish ... dont be kickin ovaries, t'isnt nice ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Am I the only one who would want this whale with Twitter birds & HootSuite owls as part of a Twitter-themed charm bracelet? #socialmediadork - Corinne L
Corinne, I did an Instagram bead not too long ago and was wondering if Twitter birds and the Fail Whale etc might be something people would want as a group :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I want whale earrings too!! Sterling hooks please! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Shannon, YES. Have you done owls yet? I use HootSuite all the time for Twitter management and their mascot is an owl. DM me with how much this would cost & I will set aside the funds! *jumps up and down* - Corinne L
I do little owls .. they arent really like the logo though. I'll DM you a photo :) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Y'all, the whale earrings are so cute! :D - LB: Unable to Can from Android
Yay! They made it! - Shannon - GlassMistress
There were whales in my mailbox yesterday. :) - LB: Unable to Can from Android
Big mailbox ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Indeed. :) Also, I wore them today, and the cashier at Kroger said she liked them. :D - LB: Unable to Can
Nice! It's always fun to get feedback like that. - Shannon - GlassMistress
The kiln had good things for me this morning. The plovers are my favorite. I'm planning on etching them

Wine party tonight was originally come as you are, cool and casual, bring your swimsuit. Just received a missive that the attire is now "cocktail". I don't exactly own cocktail wear, and I can't wear anything but walking shoes b/c my foot is fried. Go and be the odd man out or beg off?
Go and claim you didnt check ur email for the update. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Go in a toga and blame spell correction for turning cocktail into toga. - Todd Hoff
Whelp, it's 6:30. Time to make the beads ... Yawn.
Go Shannon Go! *shakes pompoms* - Marina's Godmother :-)
Mmmm. Donuts. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
8:20 on Friday evening and I'm pretending I don't want to just go to bad.
In my experience going bad is generally a good thing. Or at least interesting, if not good per se. :) - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
MAN wants to know if there are any energy saving TVs out there that would be covered under this weekend's no sales tax event. My reply .... Nice try dude!
This weekend I am invited to a wine and cheese party. Invitees have been instructed to 'bring a bottle to drink, a bottle to taste, and a cheese or fruit tray. If you bring a bottle to taste and your bottle is chosen as best you will win a wine basket. Does this seem weird to anyone else?
This morning we all received an email instructing us to study up on wine flavors as we would be tested on the wines we taste. It is sounding like less and less fun. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd give it a miss, really. I can see how this *would* be fun for many people, but if not for you then bin it. - Pete : Team Marina
I RSVP'd Monday ... then this silliness started. I kinda feel bad for the hostess because this will not go the way she plans no matter how much herding she does. - Shannon - GlassMistress
From the beginning the whole invite has seemed like there was something else going on behind the scenes ... like a surprise Amway party or something :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
If everyone brings a bottle and a tray, what does the hostess provide? And is everyone supposed to eat a tray's worth of cheese or fruit? - Betsy
Beats me Besty, sounds like a lot of cheese, fruit and wine to me. I was considering not bringing a tray, just a nice crusty loaf of bread. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Also, its about a 45 minute drive for me, and considerably farther for others. I'd say most of us would be pretty sparing on our drinking considering the driving to be done. Maybe she's just stocking the wine cabinet, lol - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would sell body parts for these shoes ... thank goodness they dont come in wide!
shoes.jpg
Yes, I know they are clunky. I've always had a thing for clunky shoes .. shrugs - Shannon - GlassMistress
Those are cute. What brand are they? - ellbeecee
Dansko. I saw something the other day about the brand and how it fits. Your heel should come out of the shoe when you walk ... I think that would make me crazy. Still, cute! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Would you sell your feet? #OHenryQuestions - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Ah, I can't wear Danskos at all. That means I'm not going to look for them :) - ellbeecee
Since they use EU sizing, you might still be able to make them work, you just have to try a bigger size. My EU size is two sizes bigger than my US size, but I also have weird, crooked feet. - Bette Cooper
Video bouncing around FB bugs me. Its a woman holding a 6mo-ish baby while a man applies a tattoo to his inner arm. I dont speak the language in the video so I've no idea if there was a reason or if its just craziness but the number of folks here who say getting shots for their kids is hard I have trouble believing this woman has
a good reason to put her kid through a tattoo. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Check out this bead!!! I want to be the artist when I grow up - so, so good! https://m2.facebook.com/LezlieB...
Every weekend I put in 12-16 hours on glass work. In just over a month (4 weekends) I have a local bead show that I'm (foolishly?) depending on to help pay for the sewar connections and septic demolition. From here forward I'll be adding three nights a week to the glass work schedule. If you need me I'll be in the garage.
Also. Its time to make the Impossible List. Thats the list of what I'd have finished if the world were perfect and every bead I made came out awesome. The week before the show I throw it out and take what I've got, lol. - Shannon - GlassMistress
so far the impossible list looks like this: whales 8, owls 8, owls br 8, regaliz 20, penguins gr 8, peng blk 8, tree focal 10, ladybugs 8, beez 8, hidden world focal 8, sunflower focal 4, zebra 4, horses 10 ,cows 4, pigs 6, frogs 4, sleeping fox 4, boots 4 ... and then there are all the littles, veggies, sea shells, flowers ... argh!!! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Ohh .. tea cups, coffee mugs (sometimes the new ideas catch me before I get done making the old ones, lol) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Dear Panera, please figure out how to email me a salad. Thank you.
PSA: I've had a few people mention to me that DM isnt showing up (and I've enocountered the same thing recently) so you might want to check you DMs today just in case. This PSA brought to you by tiny whale beads :-)
In about a month I have a bead show and I'm struggling to come up with 'new' things. Many of the 'cute' beads I make are 3D and in my opinion more collectible than wearable so this weekend I worked on the wearable aspect and came up with these bears which should lay flat. Yea or Nay? Also, owls and penguins because I can :-)

I'm also thinking turtle neck sweaters for the polar bears - hee! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Love 'em. For a flat bead, why not a turtle? - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Yea. All of them. - Betsy
All of these are adorable. I still rave about my lamp pull to anyone who will listen - maybe smaller versions of that design, too? (Mine is about the size of a 50 cent piece.) - Corinne L
Whoohoo payday! aka fill 'er up day (pantry, gas tank etc) and empty it out day (bank acct)
The dinner fairy whiffed. I'm going to be forced to cook something but for the life of me I don't know what. The only meat in the house is frozen chicken wings, we are out of pasta, there are two red potatoes, cans of corn and tomatoes, frozen green beans, and tortilla chips. veggie nachos?
There is a pan of brownies I made today, and milk. It's the top contender :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Nachos, wings, and brownies. Sounds like a party to me! - LB: Unable to Can from Android
Roasted potato wedges and chicken wings? - Jennifer Dittrich
Eggs! Now we're cookin! Cheese omelets w/ salsa. Too bad there arent any tortillas, I'd make breakfast burritos. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Greek green beans! I love 'em.They'd go fine with cheese omelets. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
5:55 am on a weekend ... Wth is wrong with me?!? (FYI that's rhetorical people. Don't be answering that, I don't have that much time!)
5:22 over here. Stupid bodies. :( Hoping there can be napping later... - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Does anyone here rent Xbox games? I have a question.
Which is: When you rent a game does it always load all of the content each time you wish to play. Destiny wants to load 5 gig of info everytime we turn it on and if this is a game function there's no way I'm buying it but since I havent rented games in the past I suspect it has to do with it being a rental. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I've never had game load that much every time I play, but I had heard that Destiny was HUGE file. But if it's loading like that every time, does that mean your game isn't saved? - Anika
Can you even save a rental game? I'm guessing not. You are correct though .. Destiny is HUGE and I wont put up with an hour load everytime I want to play (not to mention that we cant seem to stay connected to xbox live long enough for it to load) We screwed with it for three hours last night and played for one - grr. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I've never had a problem saving rentals, but I haven't rented an Xbox game in probably 4 or 5 years. - Anika
I've been able to save rental games just fine - just like the regular ones, you still have to have the disc in the machine to verify, so they're not as worried that you'll play it after you return it w/o buying a copy. - Jennifer Dittrich
Hmm. I'm so not doing a 30min load time evertime I want to play. nope - Shannon - GlassMistress
Update. I called a game store and they suggested that my Xbox may not have enough memory to support the game. sad panda - Shannon - GlassMistress
I just ran into that. Bought a 32GB USB stick to get us by until it's XBOX One time. - Eric - Poppa Large
Off to the vet, already bored.

Woot! Liver counts back to normal! He's still working pretty hard when he breaths and panting when he shouldnt be so we're going to try a round of pain relievers and see what happens. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Can't you guys come up with a good reason to blow my grocery budget on a game? "I NEEDS IT" ala golem isnt working.
games last a hella lot longer than a meal? - Lnorigb
Ohhh, nice one :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Games can be shared with others repeatedly over time unlike food which that's just gross. - Steve C Team Marina
Playing games reduces calorific expenditure and thus your need for sustenance is also reduced. Give a human a sandwich, and they'll be sustained for a few hours. Give them a game controller and they won't eat for days. - Slippy
Redbox has said game ... I think the budget can cover a couple nights rental. Yay! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Confession: I had to hide the panoramic photos gone wrong post, the dude in the bathtub kinda flipped me out.
Dinner with friends last night (who am I to turn it down when they are buying??). Waiter takes our drink order and I ask for a Cosmo. "What's in that?" he asked. I told him vodka, triple sec and cranberry. "What's triple sec?" he says. "I'll have an ice tea", I replied.
That's why he's a waiter and not a bartender! Anytime a server asks me, 'what's in it?" I tell them to ask the bartender! - Jenny
In this case I'd say the waiters and the bartenders were one in the same. It was a very small Indian restaurant and he was the only one on the floor the whole time we were there with exception of a busser. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Ahhh...not good! - Jenny
Right? Tea for the win, LOL - Shannon - GlassMistress
Grumpy Fish and Happy Fish :-)

Lady whipped into our parking lot in a GMC Yukon that she cant park straight. Fiddled with her hair a bit then got out with her dog and walked him around in our grass - yes he pooped. She is now cleaning out her truck and tossing the trash into our parking lot .... I'm having trouble staying in my seat.
Get out there and kindly hand her a trash bag. And wait. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like m9m's suggestion. But take a photo of her and her car license plate first. - Spidra Webster
OMG my uncle is a bigger ass then they were. The lady was waiting for someone at the repair shop across the street (someone dropping off a vehicle is my take). Once they loaded up and left Unc walked out, picked up the trash, walked it across the street and threw it in that business's yard. I'm left just rolling my eyes. Jeebus! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Wtf? That's so rude. People suck. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
As my mother's Grandparents, great aunts/uncles, and father have passed away all of their money had funneled toward my Grandmother. Now that my Grandmother has passed it has been split four ways between her children. My mother is actually on the phone with me right now complaning that she now has TOO MUCH! *bangs head on desk*
Did you offer to share the pain? :-) - Betsy
Betsy, it crossed my mind but so did the thought of 'owing' my mom and I dont know that I'd survive that ;-P - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yeah, it probably wouldn't be worth the trouble. - Betsy
She will, however, be buying dinner when I visit and not the other way around :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Happy Monday to me. I got and email from the ISGB (bead maker's group) and danged if one of my beads wasnt in the header. I checked the website and its there too! Rather nice start to the week :-)

Mine is in the center. - Shannon - GlassMistress
good for you!!! - GRANDMAFORSCARLETT
Well done, Shannon! - Corinne L
Two hours into Monday and I've completed the office janitorial (bathrooms, floors, garbage out), boxed my UPS for the day (including bead orders), and renewed our Ebay auctions for parts. I sure hope this makes the day go fast :-)
I think I just poisioned myself with copper leaf ... Cough!
Isn't this how superheroes or supervillains get started? - Betsy
^this. Now we need to come up with Shannon's superhero name and powers. - Corinne L
Might be time to do a little housekeeping.
