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… Read More

A Good Week …

Our Xena had her babies on Sunday – four beautiful pups joined our crew.  Here’s a quick pic John sent me while I was at work.  [Better photos to come …] And, DH turned another year older this week.  So, we started… Read More

More Baby Steps …

Cuz that’s how we move forward!  But first … Look at this!  Aunt Piggy and Uncle Clyde ‘lording’ over the Neo babies … Too Cute! And back to baby steps:  We got the new shelving unit up – and full.  I like… Read More

Et … VOILA!!!

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… Read More

It’s Time to Make the Donuts …

Motherhood isn’t always easy … But poor Chloe is doing great!  And her piglets are growing and thriving.  While the Cowbell loves her babies very much, she let me know with a look or two this week that it’s not all bonbons… Read More

So, yeah … We’ll get to glass

But first … I made a few cards this week.     And, I’ve got a few (hundred) more ideas rolling around.  I did feed DH – my version of Eggroll-In-A-Bowl.  He loves it.  And, we made a small stock-pot amount … Leftover’s… Read More
