So, yeah … we tried it:

Cheeseburger soup – in the crockpot.  Umm, with the Velveeta ‘cheese’ … Call it comfort food for our weekend’s hard work: If you’re feeling hypotensive, it will surely bring your blood pressure up.  I’m not saying I wouldn’t play with the recipe… Read More

Bad weather, good day …

We had a fairly impressive snowstorm today, the first of the season … during our show.  That was kind of a bummer, and made for a chillier than usual green house.  But, we still had a good day at Arts & Greens… Read More

With Mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap …

Yep, we’re loaded and ready to go.  So, sure – I’ve got two kilns running with ‘last minute’ glass … DH spent the day loading our trailer, checkin’ the tires and telling me to quit ‘making stuff’!  (Umm … Never!!!)  But, look… Read More

T-3 … still moving!

29 … and holding?

Happy Birthday to me!  I’d say I had a great 17th anniversary of my 29th birthday, but … It started out perfect.  Playing in the studio with the Mongrels and Gustifer, working on bowls and ornaments, followed by a dinner with the… Read More

Frit play …

What once started as an ‘oops’ project is now being trialed intentionally … a bright peacock spoon rest: And platters: Snowmen, Bon Appetite and Pumpkin Patch … yep, it’s a Creative Paradise (molds) kind of day.  Fingers crossed that I set my… Read More
