Things started out really good. I was remaking the host and chalice bead like I've done many times before.
The shapes were great, but this white clay I used was rock hard. Sometimes, for whatever reason, the clay I buy is very hard. Usable, but hard. This time, it was just the white. I should have tossed it and used different clay while I still had the chance...my frugality was my downfall...
Isn't she beautiful? The finished bead just like I've done many times before... except that the green clay was super soft and that white clay was rock hard. I should have known this would happen...
Oh, Sadness! That white clay didn't want to budge, but everything else did, so this is what I got.
What a waste! Back to work for me.
I'm sure there's a lesson in all of this. Maybe this demotivation poster will help me see it.
The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very, very badly.
WELL, that puts it all in perspective. Sometimes, it's better just to laugh it off!
