Viruses, Birthdays & Studio Updates
Our youngest daughter was sick last week … and then DH & I both came down with a virus that wiped us out for a couple of days. [Yep Baby Girl in Ghana, and we get sick too!] So, I made her a get-well card, along with a Halloween card. And, our oldest son turned 24, so he needed a birthday card …
Then I moved on to painting some water color Cosmos. I’m waiting for a couple of items to arrive before I finish them off as cards.
We had our son over to celebrate his birthday along with a home cooked meal. It was nice catching up with him. We made our Spinach & Artichoke Ravioli with French bread and Greek Salad, and wrapped it up with Mexican Fruit Cake … A quasi-international meal … No photos from our kitchen, but here is a link to the cake recipe (we use less butter and powdered sugar, but … either way= YUMMY GOODNESS!)
After celebrating, I got busy cleaning and organizing in the studio. I have a new stamp storage area and cleared off a spot for storing ink pads:
We’re also officially underway with the holiday season, so I’m making Christmas ornaments in batches. Here are some (nutcracker) soldiers and snowmen, ready for the kiln.
And, I finally got around to much-needed packaging and photographing. Look for these coe96 murrini listings to finally hit the shop this week! I also hope to have another vit-pull date with DH …
Leaving with a cute photo of the sisters sharing their bed space and bone … AWWW, what good girlz!!! BTW – got through mandatory computer and (day-walking) ER nursing competencies last week – YAHOO!
