This month's topic for the ArtBeadScene Carnival Bloggers is Anticipation. I have been keeping my ears open to hear this word and it isn't one that comes up too often. Anticipation is more of an idea than a word we use a lot. For ceramic bead artists, anticipation is a frequent experience: every kiln firing is about anticipation: the good kind and the bad kind.
Seasons are about anticipation: this time of year is about the ground opening up to let new plants start growing, Just this afternoon, I spent some time filming my chive plants and I am anticipating a great plate of cream cheese and chives to spread on some home made bread.
And I saw a few spears of green garlic coming through the straw. Yum.
I think I am going to make my blog post about anticipating my favorite season --and what I enjoy about it--all through the eyes of Art Beads.
I love Summer best. My bracelet with charms from Earthenwood Studio is about some of the pleasures of Summer: picnics, cook outs, pizza, and cold beverages. And don't Hot dogs on a bun really taste best when it is sunny and warm?
