Tried and …

True TIRED!  It’s been a trying and tiring week.  I knew it would be, but YUCK!  From a never-ending list of chores, to a mandatory A.M. work in-service, in between a surplus of amazingly annoying emails [that my editor – DH – won’t let me vent about here … even though I said I would …

Thanksgiving …

I have a lot to be thankful for … Thanksgiving went off without a hitch, no one got sick, I got through the day with minimal thoughts of – and NO ACTUAL – maiming of family members(!), and with all of these left-overs – I won’t be cooking for several days!  But seriously – while it was a busy week, …

Happiness and contentment …

Had our ‘semi-annual’ dinner with childhood friends … I love these ladies!  We come at life from different view points and experiences, while still having so much in common.  One of those shared interests is our love of dogs, so I made a couple of quick gifts. Now, with full belly and content mood, I’m …

Oh … I’ve done it now!

While being sick, to boot!  That’s my excuse, anyway … I have been dreaming about the ‘Cadillac’ of glass paints for a LONG time now.  Umm, not anymore … I ordered ‘em!  Cuz, my screen printing equipment arrived, and I realized I needed more enamels!  I’m just waiting for those to arrive … In the …

AADD …

Adult ADD.  Is it an actual diagnosis? … Can you DEVELOP it? … Or CATCH it (like a virus)???  I think I may have it … The ideas are spinning so quickly (in my head), it’s hard to stay focused.  So, then I try making lists (mental and physical) – but there are too many!!! So …

The Nutty ‘Professor’ …

So, I’ve got a few experiments going on in the studio today.  While I was explaining my ‘end goal vision’ to DH, all quick and excited – I realized he was staring at me with this dazed and confused look on his face.  “S’Okay,” I said, “trust me!” … “Whatever you say, professor,” was his …

Another one bites the dust …

Have passed through another year of life … DH likes to say I’m catching up to him.  ‘Course I point out he’ll always be OLDER!  So far, it’s been [another] busy, productive week:  Made candles; went to Metro; spent time catching up/celebrating with my family (phone, visit, phone, phone!); did a little home canine nursing …

Cuz Moms CAN!

Been a busy week here at Clayton Hill!  But a great week, too! * I’ve been busy in the studio – in stolen ‘patches’ of time – which may make me more productive (???).  I have new dichroic cabs (that will become pendants, badge reels and now … PINS!), as well as some other dichroic jewelry …
