Ahhh … Friday

Brings about the end of another week … but a good week.  A few things from the studio:  New slumped bottle, “Cocktail”; more boiled blanks – I’m still working out the tweaks, but I like them, while slowly building up to a load (for the coffin) of [eventual] bowls and what not; and I tried my hand at silicone mold making … Hmm, I wonder if it will work as I hope?

Did a coffin-load of bottle slumping.  I was excited about this – a red Raspberry Absolut bottle.  It didn’t appear to be ‘coated’, so I had hopes it would stay red after slumping … Oops – NO JOY!  And – most of the white enamel (lettering) burned off too.  Bummer!  The rest of my bottles faired well, though.

As a special Friday surprise – I was honored with a feature on a fellow crafter’s site:  Krafty Max Originals … Thanks KM!  And so – to round out our Friday (and Lent, I suppose, although we’re Baptist) – we’ll be having Fish Fry for dinner, thanks to our local Catholic church.  Yum!

An evening with the twins, pooches and DH before we roll into the weekend … Smile
