Tuesday is my absolute favourite day ever……I love, love, love a Tuesday.

About 15 years ago hubby joined the local Rostrum Group and their meetings were held on a Tuesday night which meant he had dinner out ever Tuesday so the kids and I decided to make every Tuesday night cereal night! oh yeah!

Tuesday evolved and I ended up making it my studio day.  I decided to not do any housework, shopping, cooking, washing, gardening (haha not that I do that anyway) or bookwork. I don’t answer the phone, I don’t have visitors, I don’t go anywhere, I don’t book appointments…..every single Tuesday is MY DAY!!!!

It’s my day to just play with whatever I like.  I might clean off my workspace completely and start fresh or I might continue the play from my last studio time…whatever I do, it’s always so awesome to know I have the whole day..and you know it’s amazing how productive I am in the studio on a Tuesday, it seems to be that day that everything turn out the way you want it to.

Now I do have lots of other time in the studio, but there’s always that nagging in the back of my mind saying…better get dinner sorted, better hang that washing out, gotta go to work, better go to the hairdresser now – I’m sure you know what I mean.

Tuesday is the day that my brain is clear and I don’t have to think of anything else….and it’s so freaking awesome!!!

Here’s what I got up to today.

Hi Deb,
Do you have a tutorial on curved tube beads?
I am trying to make curved tube beads and having a lot of trouble. I have tried rolling out the clay and wrapping around a wood dowel,but I can’t get the clay off the dowel without wrecking it before baking. So…I tried wrapping paper around the dowel which helped a bit but not great, then I tried poking through a soldid tube with a skewer but not great either.
Please, please share the right way to do it, Your work is so beautiful!

What a great idea! Let's see which day will become MY day. Thank you so much for the inspiration (not only the day…..). By accident I got my hands on some Mylar, first try was ugly. Gonna try again!
