Where in the World....

Lets play a game, you guess where in world I am writing this email from, and the first one who guesses right wins a set of 5 beads, their choice of colors, when I get back to the studio in Gilroy...don't be fooled, my language may be deceiving you on purpose, so think about this one hard...

In the mean time the Opening of the studio was a huge success...you would be able to see it more, had Grace and I not been so busy running around feeding & demoing beads for our over 100 guests through out the day, we might have taken more photos...I asked my mom who is the usual photo person at all events if she took any photos and she say "oh no, I forgot" so there you go...I had 4 awesome students for the class which was from 8am to 1pm, then I melted glass & showed off making fish & pumpkins for the rest of the day as guests arrived, I think I saw Grace twice the whole time, once in the start of the class in the morning and once when we sat down at the end of the day with my mom & hubby & Grace's hubby & had a glass of wine & relaxed...

We had 5 different vendors who brought their yummy glass beads & jewelry...the Rock Carving people were so in to the glass they were at every demo I did...and signed up for later classes...

so here are a few photos that we did manage to get from a couple of other people...

hope you are doing well too, thanks for stopping by...life is good...

PS we have added another 2 day class with Corina on October 28th & 29th, send me an email if you are interested...

from somewhere on the road...Jelveh...

Peace...

Hi Jelveh, Well let's see. I think at the time you posted this you were still in California, do you need to specify whether it is in the air or on the ground????? I think the pictures were taken at the new studio, Graces. My guess is that you are at the time of the post telling hubby and Sammy bye=bye and I hope I'm right, winning Jelveh's pretties would make my day! Take care and have fun, know we're thinking of you. Peace

Hmm... Gilroy, CA garlic capital of the world. Don't think that would be a good place, however.

Well, tell us Jelveh. Where were you when you blogged last? I can't wait to see how that mind of your's works! Hope you're having a great time in Istanbul and can't wait to see here how great it is and how much fun you are having.
Peace and good wishes.

LOL, I'd say Turkey or the airport Starbucks soaking up the WiFi!

ginny said...

Well, I know that you are no longer in the studi, in the airport, in the air, in the plane but you are at your destination. Are you there, Jelveh? LOL!
You must be having a marvelous time! Enjoy!

Jelveh, I just subscribed to your lising a little while back. I am new to lampworking and am trying so hard to keep up and learn and practice, practice, practice. I love the brown bead...I would like to have it and see how the colors in it flow and to feel the shape in my hands. There is something about glass that excites me. My father was a welder and I love the torch and fire, when I learned about lampworking, I took a class and then ordered all my things I needed so that I would really be set up right.
Watching your site and your work and all the happy faces from your students gives me great joy. I know that feeling and am happy to be among them.
Thank you for having such a wonderful site and for encouraging everyone the way you do.
Have fun with Corinna, her book is my glass bible.
Thank you again, and I would love to hear from you.
sincerely
