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

Computers & Cute Puppies

Spent 3-4 hours this week fighting with my new computer, Windows 10 and technology.   Aaarrggh!  I now realize nothing is compatible with Windows 10.  Previously purchased (expensive) software programs (Corel, Excel, WinZip) need to be upgraded (‘at a discount’ … MY ARSE!),… Read More

More Reverse Enamel Trials …

The good news – I have my bubble squeeze program down pat!  Here are my latest spoon rests fired with white luminescent backing.  The bad news – I’m still having issues with color burn out, even while adding more venting … So,… Read More
