...my obsession with shiny sharp sensuous things... mostly things glass, metal & stone... I'm susan barton and this my twisted perspective of life as an artist... my bead neurosis with all the entrails... I also love to 'feature' bead artists and their work. I gain a perverse sense of satisfaction knowing others have this affliction as well...
it truly is a lovely gesture when another artist features your work in their blog. EpheriellDesigns has featured one of my pieces, evergreen from my etsy shop, on her blog. please check out her blog and etsy shop when you have the time. so greatly appreciated, thank you once again, susan
pretty amazing that we are into the month of october. one beautiful thing about living in northern minnesota is the change of season. this time of year is my favorite time. the colors of nature at her finest, i can't compete with with yellow golden orange ochre red sienna tan and brown, they are perfect!
autumn in northern minnesota as with spring and summer don't last as long as they used too. this is the time of year when i miss the desert too.
how did we ever survive those grand old golden days without a computer? it seems that it was just yesterday that i mastered a word processor, remember those? and now i have acquired a cell phone, camera and a mac. i totally refuse to buy any more widgets that will complicate my life further! i am using my husband's laptop as i write this. it seems that my mac had a bit of a meltdown and refuses to even turn on for even just a little bit. i will be traveling to the twin cities to have that bugger repaired, two hours away. what a pain in the rump that is! i will be saying my prayers to the hickydoo and the wahtchamacallit godess the wideget man to ask for their blessing and that my mac will come out of this unscathed. please pray for me :P
many times it's hard for me to focus at the task at hand and even loosing sight of the big picture. from small every day things to the dream of finishing my studio and concentrating on being a metalsmith. i think i need to have a big stickie posted to my forehead, 'susan! focus!' or many be little flashing subliminal messages in my glasses that says don't let the little petty issues take up that much space in your tiny little brain, there's is only so much room! think about what you need to do and maintain course! yea right... we can always dream, the tricky navagation is to acheive those dreams.
i need to vent a bit about copyright and the blatant stealing of jewelry designs. it finally happened. and i'm very upset, yea upset is a good word, there are a few other choice words that come to mind but i probably shouldn't go there. emailing administration at Etsy.com may come to no use. and the thought of hiring a lawyer makes me not want to even see one. so what should i do? i have already emailed the 'infringer' and she pretends she has no clue. that's nice.
