Hibernating …

I haven’t decided if I’m battling some wimpy bug or just hibernating this week.  But, I’ve been sleeping for long spells, with short periods of consciousness – to eat, peruse the internet and play with cards/paper.  And then – back to sleep … Tomorrow is going to be a long one, with mandatory work competency …

Updates …

I have managed to misplace my creative mojo again.  But – there have been a few other things keeping us occupied lately … We’ve had puppies (again)!  Our Josie had her first litter, so we’ve added four big, beautiful blue babies to our nursery. Josie is doing an awesome job loving, feeding and caring for …

A Bit of a Rut …

It must be the time of year – DH and I are SUPPOSED to be in Paradise right about now …Unfortunately we won’t be getting away this year.  And, my ‘glassy mojo’ is (apparently) on vacation.  So, creatively, it’s slow-going. My card making seems to be moving along.  I made a few cards last week, …

So this just happened…

Somewhere along the way, DH decided to enlarge the dried up baby pond we have in our backyard.  Sure, I said – thinking to myself, “yeah, someday …” Nope.  That excavator spent a week at my house, and ‘A Boy With His Toy’ got busy.  Turns out what I had envisioned vs. what time, his …

What a week!

Chloe had her babies!  On Wednesday, she started stage 1 labor, and when she ‘returned’ her food, we were off to the vet.  Six hours later, we came home with one groggy Momma and four beautiful bulldog babies!  Here she is loving on her ‘posse’: Life-on-the-outside is settling in (day 1 was a bit rough, …

Yeah, so …

I’m taking this “NOT ADULTING” to a WHOLE new level… DH is cooking dinner – IF/WHEN he wants to eat;  I haven’t done laundry … in a REALLY long time;  I am stocking up on stamps and card making supplies – LIKE A BOSS(!!!);   I’m keeping the sisters fed and happy.  [Here’s Ro, soaking up …

Ahhh …

RELIEF!  Got through the annual tax date with our favorite accountant.  We really cut it down to the wire this year, finishing our sorting and tallying for the 3 businesses/4 jobs just 2 short hours before our appointment (with a 45 minute drive to make!)!  YIKES! After that painful deadline, I am so not ‘adulting’ …

And, back to reality …

Paradise was … well ~ PARADISE!  A great sun-filled escape!  We arrived back to find our homestead still standing, all two and four-legged family healthy.  So, unpacked – but still sporting a bit of sunshine color, it’s time to get back into the grind. While I haven’t fired up my kilns yet, I do have …

Countdown …

But first, special thanks to JP from Tattered Time and her Garden Stake Whimsy Tutorial.  I love using a nib pen for drawing on glass!  It is so much easier for me to control my lines (vs using a paint brush) – and her recipe for black enamel is well worth the tutorial price.  I …
