Finally–Some Mojo!

I found my mojo this week!  We are finally moving things along in the glass area of the studio.  I’m working on an ornament request, but I’m moving spoon rests (no photo) and night lights along too!  Yay! I also had to keep up with the Ladies this week, giving them another ‘pumpkin treat’, a …

Another Catch-Up Post

So, we are cleaning out the garden … gathering up the last of the ‘bounty’ and putting things to bed.  I am currently trying to dry sunflower seeds in my sunny studio window (where all the garden pre-starts began) … We emptied out  our sweet potato barrels … not an amazing amount, but enough to …

Sweet Days of Summer

Another catch-up post … DH and I are enjoying the summer.  We had the kids out last week to celebrate 3 of the 4 birthdays (the twins are 23, and our oldest daughter will soon be 28 … Dang, someone around here is getting OLD!!!).  It was a fun night, and we’re so proud of …

Good News/Bad News …

and catching up to date. So, the good news – I was off work this weekend.  The bad news – it was supposed to be our oldest daughter’s wedding weekend.  The good news – she has already chosen a new date for 2021. The good news, I’m feeling better.  I saw my doctor and we …

Silent/Healing …

I’m not sure why I would decide to develop abdominal cellulitis now.  I don’t know how one goes about creating abdominal cellulitis … But, I’ve been quiet lately, in part – because that’s what I’ve been doing/GROWING??? Absolute craziness!  Not what I had programmed.  But, there you have it – this body has it’s own …

It’s called FAITH!

…  I needed to remind a couple family members of this recently.  I’m an ER nurse.  [Apparently, I’m also AN ESSENTIAL … (Wow – doesn’t that sound post-apocalyptic!  You and me Daryl – We Got This! )] But honestly – it’s just FAITH …  I struggled with this early in my nursing career.  When we …

A Quick Escape …

From Margueritaville – where NO Corona is served!  [HaHaHa!!! … while pounding chest!] I received my new Tim Holtz alcohol inks today (ordered back in late January/early February).  So, I had to pause for a moment and try a J.McGuire technique.  Maybe, 1):  I shouldn’t be so SURE of myself [Umm, listen and follow all …

And – In an Instant …

I’m so defeated!  My year has been turned upside down, all on one day.  At first I was incredulous … Then it started sinking in, and my hands started shaking, and then – as I was tearing my office/studio upside down, I broke down and cried. Thus went my Friday …  pre-filled with crazy ideas …

Birthdays, Card Making & EPIC

Wrapped up all of my mandatory nurse classes last week, YAY!  Got through the weekend shifts, and heard such bizarre complaints, I can’t even mention them… My goodness, but folks are losing coping skills by the bucket-loads! Moving on … On Tuesday, DH and I made nachos, making the chips (cut tortillas) in the air …

Major Deadlines … MET!

We made it … All handmade gifts were completed and GIVEN.  I pulled together a few cards (five – to be exact): Four to give to our offspring, to house the cash gifts they all wanted;   And one more card for my sister … To go along with the Mexican Fruit Cake for her …
