Meat Party – Take 2…

Yep … this time it was lasagna, ribs and BBQ rabbit.  Plus whatever sides I finally decided on.  We had my grandpa, uncle, my mother in law, and our youngest baby out for dinner.  Our boy will be leaving for additional USAF training in Texas soon, and will be gone for almost a year!  It …

I like this pace …

Cruisin’ along, getting stuff done, cleaning, making cards, playing with babies … I really could get used to this slower pace.  But, I’m ready for summer!  My garden is calling me ,,, Those teaser weather days really hit me. Anyway – I am making steady progress on the mess that is the studio.  I moved …

So now …

The dreaded taxes are done!  Yay!  So now, we can focus on the next job(s) … Our group project is refinishing the hardwood floors.  MY NEXT project is finding and CLEANING this studio.  I’m going to majorly shame myself and post a photo.  It shows just how cluttered I’ve become.  Gah!  In between, I will …

That time of year …

But first – here are some of the bulbs I made in the glass blowing class with my sister.  We had a great time, and now we’re looking at other classes to take. It is THAT time of year, so tax prep is well underway.  I’m hoping we can pull them together within the next …

Card-Mania Continues …

I’ve spent a bit of quality time in my studio, playing with paper.  DH and I were talking about working some of the area Farmers Markets this spring/summer … Right now I’m making cards, cards, and more cards …        Meanwhile, our hydroponics are still going strong.  I’m hoping to get some tomatoes …

Struggle … Yep – that bus is REAL!

So, I’m trying to embrace all things I’m supposed to be embracing.  Meanwhile, dark, depressive thoughts keep springing up.  I AM OKAY!  I’m just trying to figure some sh*t out.  I am Ukrainian by birth.  Muchly disregarded by the birth mother, but I always felt that pull!  However, at this time – it is not …

Having a GREAT time …

Warning – another photo-heavy post.  But, I’m having so much fun!  DH had a birthday, so I made him a ‘pop-up’ card: And, we’ve been cooking.  I have photos of the jerky we made (pork, beef and chicken), along with the homemade dog treats … The pups love them!  Here’s the link to the dog …

Bombshell-Deadline-Bombshell …

And Finally a GOOD WEEK!!! I’ve been Missing In Action.  I’m sorry for that.  Crummy Viruses, Avoiding Adulting, Dealing WITH Deadlines, and ULTIMATELY – We Are Here! A few weeks ago, I spent some time (FORCEFULLY) visiting a lousy GI bug, but I beat it back and after 3 hard days – I won.  Then …

Getting Stuff Done …

Slowly, but surely!  We did a bit of spring cleaning in the studio, as my packaging room was over-run with more boxes than I would ever need for shipping.  There is no before photo, but trust me – it was crazy out-of-control.  And, I tried to reorganize one of my storage/display shelves … There is …

Happy & Procrastinating …

We are supposed to be prepping our taxes … But, you know – there’s still time.  So, I tidied the studio in bits and spurts, made some good food (no photos, all tried & true recipes), loved on our dogs, fed the Ladies …   I even played with copic markers today.  A good week! Time …
