Full House … gonna get FULLER

Yep … we’ve got a full house, that’s for sure!  Last week our Tubitha, doing her best interpretation of a ‘beached whale meets hippopotamus’ (poor girl), finally had her babies – all 12 of them.  Now that we’re settling in to ‘life on the outside’, and Tubby can breathe and eat again … Well DH …

Turning 29 and other news …

Celebrated another anniversary of ‘Turning 29’ … DH and I had a quiet week.  I didn’t cook a single thing, and he made cake!   Hmm, I might finally have this birthday thing figured out … We watched over our pups, who are slowly opening their eyes: I made some progress on my double-knit polka dot …

Down, but not out …

I’m working through a weird virus that has me sleeping most of my week away … Headache and body aches even through Motrin, when I’m awake.  I’m feeling better today (only needed a 3 hour mid-day nap), so I’m on the mend … Which is perfect, as our Sheeba had her puppies today (4 days …

It’s time …

For our next coe96 glass murrini cane offerings …. We did a gorgeous ‘scallion’ pull:   And. here is our first coe96 medley package, available in our Etsy shop: It’s getting to be that time of year.  The studio is becoming ‘Ornament Central’ as I prep for Christmas and our next show: Alas – it’s …

Marching On …

What an A$$-kicking week!  Sent our youngest off for Boot Camp (x4 months).  I can’t tell you how many times the ER nurse/Momma Bear in me was in conflict.  But, he is 20 years old – makes his own decisions … and I couldn’t ‘ground him’ if I wanted to … And then, the evil-biologic …

Amazing!

I got a wee bit side-tracked today.  My new phone arrived – and I had some learning to do.  Samsung Galaxy S8+ … Oh My Goodness … I love it!  I’ve been taking pictures, pictures – and more pictures!  What an awesome phone camera!!!  Little to no photo-editing to correct colors or lighting needed … …

Momma got her Flock together …

Yep!  We got all four of our kids together (along with my sister, brother-in-law and niece, my dad and stepmom,  my grandpa and my mother-in-law) for a family dinner.  I’m a happy girl!  The twins turn 20 in just a few days, our oldest will be 25 in a few weeks, followed by our oldest …

Pool Time, Dinner and the Cowbell …

Dinner with the (high school) girls, along with a bit of pool time this week, and – Oh, life is good!  [Thanks ladies!!!] My kilns are cooking (photos to come), and I’ve got my next vit stack ready.  Shooting for an ocean/water scheme, and I’m hopeful we can have our pull before heading back to …

Cruisin’ Through Summer …

I’m still playing with my reverse enameling and stamps.  A few more to finish and I will have a major coffin load of spoon rests & dishes.  Tonight’s progress:    I was painting while heating up our vit kiln for this brown/tan pull.  Oops!  Having said that … SOMEONE (DH) was right there with the …
