Doing Taxes...yeah right.



Yesterday was such a beautiful, hot day.
Mr. Beatnheart and I have our tax appointment
on Monday morning at 11am.
This is a stressful time for us and we
  HATE DOING THEM!


so instead of doing them I did this ...


my latest addiction...making polymer beads.

I said to Mr.B.."can you imagine your parents
sitting outside together making beads?"
I mean really we are like a couple of kids.


These little beads are just so cool to make and
with practically instant results.  I was able
to sit outside and roll these out, poked in the holes
and then rolled them on the concrete and then on
 a old ratty sponge.





bake for 15 minutes...
 I wonder if they would bake in an
Easy Bake Oven ?   remember those.
I always wanted one but never got one.



Then the fun part.  Painting them...
all of this is experimentation  for me...I’ve never done it before...
haven’t taken any classes...I  do it like I do everything else.
I just do it.


Mr.B brought out bronzing powders and pastes and inks...
cool.  I’m trying em all.  I love the way these are turning out...

Maybee I’ll make somepin like these with em.






So that is how I did my taxes.  Today is Saturday.
Another nice day is predicted...

wish me luck.

They have now redesigned the Easy-Bake Oven so that it looks very futuristic and space agey. Not like an old oven at all. Also, they no longer use light bulbs because of course, incandescent bulbs will soon be a thing of the past.

I saw a thing on TV about this. I don't want you to think I still play with toys.

P.S. Taxes suck.

Luck!
I wanted an Easybake oven too...too many kids in our family and not too much $. It's all good though, because now I can play play play with metal & beads!

Sweet new beads! isn't it fun when you get to use components you made yourself!
Hmm, I think I'll make beads instead of doing taxes too.

LOVE the way you do taxes. :D I'm needing to do them too, but adding them in to everything else that needs doing sounds painful. :P

I'm really loving what you are doing with polymer. They look fantastic!

(kickass earrings, too)

I love how those beads are looking..so much character & cool. Great textures & colors. My hubs has no artistic drives...I think it's Awesome that you both do. I'm just a teeny bit jealous. ;)

Fun! Did you bake them in a regular oven or kiln? Have you ever done PMC/Precious Metal Clay? You would LOVE it! Come on up for a "clay" date sometime : )

They look BRILLIANT Cynthia...you are a clever thing !! It must also be handy as well as inspiring, living with someone who is also creative....and, stuff the taxes !! XXXX

Love, love, love the beads... you could sell them in your store!

quisnam said...

I love Alek's idea of 'tax evasion beads' and agree with Melinda, you could definitely sell them in your store.

Beads beat taxs every time!

Wow, wow, wow. The beads are very attractive and a great way to "do your taxes".

Isn't the weather fabulous this weekend :-)

Those are the best lookin' taxes I've seen in a long time! I've always had a bit of an aversion to polymer clay but these could make me change my mind- they look like gnarly old tree nuts.

Lucie said...

I love your beads! The texture, the colors, they are rough enough...Like Sparrow I'm not fond of polymer clay but you've definitely changed my mind with these
