Shannon - GlassMistress

I’m a procrastinator, a sewist, a dabbler, a reader, a baker, an over planner, a mama to many furry kids and I regularly play with fire.

If you Google vegetable or veggie lampwork beads you will get lots of images. Some good, some bad and even some made by me. I posted a set in an FB auction today and received a private message from another lampworker that suggests I've stolen her idea. I havent seen her beads (that I know of) and I'm having trouble constructing a response.
"I didnt know there was a copyright on vegetables" is the first thing that springs to mind, - Shannon - GlassMistress
What's the exact wording she uses? - Corinne L
"Those look very familar, you must have seen mine. Lots of people copy them. You'res are cute" And no, that 'you'res' does not belong to me :-) I'm going with 'Thanks they are fun to make' and leaving it at that, but I'm dying to know how long she's been making them because I'm twisted like that. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I think your response is smart, considering her passive-aggressive tone. - Corinne L
Correct her by saying, "Actually I have not had the pleasure of seeing your work. I would love if you could send me a link." - Janet from FFHound!
You know I had to go digging ... I started making mine in early 2012 (sometime before April b/c I had a big necklace of nothing but veggies that went into an April gallery show). She commented on the auction as well, which bumps the post back to the top of the group. I owe her a thanks ... they sold a few minutes after her comment :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
"Actually, I model my veggies on whatever happens to be on sale at my local grocery store that week." - L to tha B from Android
Dear PayPal, I have a surprising number of customers that want a photo of the beads they buy to go along with the beads they buy. Etsy knows how to add a photo to an invoice, it is time you learned. Love, Me.
I have about three people who buy FB auctions from me as soon as I put them up. I suspect one is a horder - or has a shopping problem. She's purchased four things this morning and I kinda feel bad, but I also need some new shoes so I guess I'm going to hell.
Maybe she's Christmas shopping? - Melly - #TeamMarina
Could be, but she often talks about her growing 'stash' and how she never seems to make anything from them. However, thinking that she's Christmas shopping makes me feel better so maybe we'll just go with that ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I hoard scrapbooking supplies. Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
but at least you're enjoying the ride - Just VAL #TEAMMARINA
Dark and stormy tree for Halloween :-)

Um ..49k updates, really?

Depends on the definition of "operation". These could be things like file operations or registry modifications. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Neighbors are storming Normandy with heavy artillery. I had no idea this was a firework holiday, sigh.
Duncan's ultrasound is this morning. We've already been warned that there is no fix for anything they might find in his liver and care going forward would be palliative but if you've got a spare 'good doggy' thought we'd still appreciate it.
Absolutely xxxx - Melly - #TeamMarina
Good luck. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
Definitely! - L to tha B from Android
Poor dude, he wants no part of this...fought them all the way down the hall - Shannon - GlassMistress from iPhone
Throwing all my good doggie thoughts to Duncan. - Kevin Johnson from Android
It took several peanutbutter treats but he lived. The vet cant see anything in his liver, and its size is good, so the next step is two weeks of meds and a new blood test. Its still a mystery but at least it does not seem to be immediatly dire. Thanks for the good thoughts! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Still keeping him in healing thoughts. - Janet from FFHound!
Yay for Not the Liver. - Betsy
I'm glad that it isn't the liver but hope they can figure out what's going on soon so he can feel better. - vicster: full-bodied
Poor puppy! Glad they've ruled out the liver, but I hope he's feeling better soon! - Yvonne Renee
So glad they were able to rule that out, but hope they get you good answers soon. - Jennifer Dittrich
It is still a liver problem, one of the enzymes in his liver should be at 20 and was over 470. We just ruled out a mass in the liver but still have no clue why the readings are so far off. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Poor muffin. - L to tha B from Android
Poor pudding. We're sending all our get-well vibes. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Poor doggie. Hope they get it figured out soon. - Anne Bouey
Either Lehigh is no longer the preferred place to bury the bodies or we got our sewer connection point today.

Dinner was good, the cocktail was great, the company was the best! The whole thing was hella expensive but worth every penny.
Bonus: Though the food presentation was very pretty neither one of us was inclined to snap a photo and do an FB post. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Budget be damed! I'm going to dinner with a friend tonight who is moving to Atlanta in a few days. I'm sad because with recent shifts in my social circle we have become much closer. She's chosen a place I've never been but if its as good as the photo make it look you should probably be jealous!...
I just traded Denizens of the Deep for a Poditrist visit, LOL!
3rd Place! Woot!
Sadie day!

"Stimpy, you eeeeeeeediot!" - Pete : Team Marina
so sweet dog :) - moreya
Dang it! I burnt my quesadilla and it's all there is. Oh well, I guess I'll get today's allowance of char, lol!
Carbon is good for you, right? - L to tha B from Android
One of my entries was NOT accepted to the show ... BOOHOO!
Unlike. - Betsy
But others were? - John (bird whisperer)
Yes. I had two submissions. One was accepted and the other not (first time!). The show is the Aquarium show and all things must be from under the water. I did a pendant that was my take on water itself and it evedently didnt match the show theme. Since the 'judges' are volunteers there are no judging notes to let the submitter know why his or her piece was rejected. I'm really ok with... more... - Shannon - GlassMistress
Grumpy Angler Fish!
Angry Fish1.jpg
OMG is that one for sale? - Steve C Team Marina
Piranha angler fish is cool. - Betsy
Steve, I'm still working out coral stands for them but once I do I should have four to choose from. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Put me down for one he needs to be with your other fishies in our house. - Steve C Team Marina
You might need to get him a leash .. and a muzzle, LOL - Shannon - GlassMistress
Judging by size and appearance, I would start calling that one a she. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
wonderful work Shannon - Just VAL #TEAMMARINA
I said 'no' .... its a miracle!
Good for you! - Kristin

Thanks. I feel bad for saying no but, for once, I chose my sanity over someone else's request. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Good for you, Shannon! - vicster: full-bodied
Boom! *\o/* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Well done! - Corinne L
Sanity matters. Well done. - Steve C Team Marina
It was really, really hard. My brain is still trying to work out some way to help with her wedding cake (she's nice, I dont know her well but I like her). Clearly this is going to take some practice. - Shannon - GlassMistress
You give her the names of 2-3 bakeries that do great work on wedding cakes. That's helpful when coming from a now former wedding cake maker. - Corinne L
Do you ever want to comment on something but don't because the fall out isn't worth it?
All the damn time. - SAM
Yes. To be honest, I wish I could stop myself more often. - Johnny
I make that choice often. Generally I can't be bothered. - Steve C Team Marina
yes - Me
Regularly. - Bren from iPhone
IRL—all. the. time. - Micah
Only on days ending in 'y'. - Hot Bubba. 114F Hot.
Yes. - Betsy
A lot .. Especially on ________'s posts. - Kristin from iPhone
Yes. Probably not as often as I should (that is, fail to comment). - Walt Crawford
Rarely, actually. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
I was just thinking about having done that earlier today. #JustCensoredMyself - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
No. - Cristo
Absolutely not. - Eric Logan
On Facebook, yes. Then I pull up FriendFeed, write a Bitchfest or Confession item to get it off my chest, and either delete the post after a few hours or leave it. :-D - Corinne L
Sometimes on Facebook, rarely on here. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Still pantry cooking this week (Dunc is scheduled for an ultrasound, gotta save my bucks). Tonight, Thai-ish chicken in peanut sauce with carrots over rice. Ok, a few things were from the fridge and freezer:-)
*hugs to you and Duncan* - L to tha B from Android
I've been asked to do another wedding cake. Smaller and easier than the last but still ... wedding cake. I'm torn between making it and getting it right (since the last one was 'not right') and retiring as the cake lady. Sigh.
Retirement Wedding Cakes equals more money to come out of retirement to do such cakes. Plus other requirements other then more money is that you do them your way not theirs. - Me

I had so much fun making this! I'm so bummed that I don't have a good camera here to get a better photo. These are heading to the studio show tomorrow. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Oh yes, totally amused!
photo.JPG
LOVE this! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Me too! I'm toying with something I'm calling compound beads (I'm sure there's a real name but I don't know what it is). I'm hoping to mount this one, and a small scared one to a piece of coral for a show at the studio..fingers crossed :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Can't wait to see how it comes out. I'm such a fan :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Amusement achieved! Grumpy pumpkin with bat...hahahah!

Up. GetErDone day is underway, the first load of laundry is in, dishwasher running and general clutter clean up is underway.
Front porch swept, spiders eradicated, ant hill encouraged to move, front light fixtures cleaned and cinder blocks that have been sitting in the driveway for month as as a UFO moved to the side of the house. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Curious how you encourage an ant hill. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Shop vac :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Master bath somewhere between girl clean and guest clean, second load of laundry in, and first load of laundry folded and hung. - Shannon - GlassMistress
go Shannon go! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Over an hour on the phone getting Skype loaded on her iPad...argh! Now I'm behind :-(. Third load of laundry done and folded, fourth washing (blankets). - Shannon - GlassMistress
Herded the dust buffalo and dog hair tumble weeds from the bedroom, vacuumed base boards, cob webs, made bed, swept and mopped dog crates ... Emma was very suspicious of that last activity, heh - Shannon - GlassMistress
Dusted a blind, broke the blind, cussed the blind, fixed the blind. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Chiseled out the microwave, cleaned guest bath, swept and mopped that floor, swept and dusted the front hall, eliminated the cobwebs. Heading for the shower now, the out for a couple of errands...I'd sit but I fear I'd never get up. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Wow! You deserve a medal! - Anne Bouey
I really deserve a kick in the pants for letting it get so far gone! I never was any good at cleaning as I go :-( - Shannon - GlassMistress
Living and dining room still look like a bomb went off ... But I bet it won't get done this weekend :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Got the oil changed and my truck washed, warehouse shopping done and treated us to Panera for dinner :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
High five! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Do nothing' ... 'Or rather do only what amuses me' weekend has begun! I don't even have any custom work to do so Flame On! Now, someone tell me what to make
Well you did say "flame on" http://www.writeups.org/img... - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
Well hell. Dunc's blood work is back. Everything is normal except for one liver enzyme. It should be between 20-100 but is over 400. Some liver protective meds have been ordered and we need to schedule an ultra sound.
My guess is his allergy meds...doggy Zyrtec. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Hoping it is a food issue and nothing more. - Janet from FFHound!
Me too, fingers crossed. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Poor boo. Hope things will be easily resolved! - L to tha B from Android
