I’ve been playing a bit in the studio, and doing a wee bit of shopping. Someone has copper enameling equipment coming. [Shhhh – don’t tell DH!] And, a few new molds and glass from my favorite glass shop. Maybe I have some stands from NC on the way. Oh – and possibly a couple bails from OR (… and FL, and China). We won’t even talk about any decals I may have stumbled on … Ss’all good! DH keeps stealing chocolate from my studio, so – it’s justified.
I also bought a new (used) cabinet for the studio (T.Y. Craigslist). He [DH] says I overpaid, and it does smell a bit old and musty – but, it’s the perfect size for the space and it provides covered storage for more of my ‘stuff’.
I’ve been making listings for the (Etsy) shops. And, I’ve officially been smoke-less for a month (working on 5 weeks now). I wonder if I’ll always ‘count it out’ (I’m reminding myself of the scene in the Adam Sandler movie, Grown Ups – umm, ‘48 months’) … Anyway – listings for the (Artfire) shops:
The twins are on the mend and eating normally. I head back to work tomorrow. And, our pups will be moving on to their new homes over the weekend and early next week … so visits, DTW trips and sad good-byes. (Look at that handsome little porker! Too cute!!!)
And, then we jump into prepping for a few more art shows. Maybe. I think … (Muir Middle School, Arts & Greens Holiday Market, and Warm & Cozy. Possibly. We’ll see.) I have projects and ornaments and ideas whipping around my head like crazy. Good thing I have some new supplies and more coming …
*BTW – not only does my record remain clean (no one injured) during the last ‘almost’ five weeks of my tobacco-free-ness … but – I’ve spent every penny I would have saved on glass/studio supplies … Yeah, that’s better! (???)
