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 …

Goodbye 2020 …

So, another catch-up post.  I’ve been missing in action because my alien baby, Hollis decided to come back (abdominal cellulitis) about 3 weeks ago.  I had daily visits to my Doc for antibiotic injections, changed up the oral antibiotics and I’m now waddling with a 5-6 month pregnant-look (improved).  Fun times! We managed a vitrigraph …

Love Those Date Nights …

So we made the soup last week – the creamy cabbage kielbasa soup.  It was delicious! And then I moved on to some studio cleaning and glass slumping.  I had a small mishap with my spoon rests, as it’s been ages since I re-applied kiln wash, so after ruining 3, I’m prepping those molds with …

Family – We Had Them out …

It wasn’t quite the way we planned, but we had all of our kids over for dinner.  It was supposed to be something along the line of mano a mano … So that we could spend time with each of our offspring in a meaningful way, with good food in a relaxed atmosphere, making each …

It’s All Good …

Lots of time spent talking with my family this week, and in the end, it’s all good! In between phone calls, I wrapped up my spoon rests and got a few Etsy listings completed.    Then I made a 3 pound meatloaf to keep DH happy while emptying out left-overs in our fridge, and checked …

Food, Family and Fall …

Finally some cold working, some kiln work … some production!  And some spoon rests that I’ll be adding to our shop very soon! I played with paper too.  I have wanted to make fall themed backgrounds – I love these!  Now to figure out how to finish them … I’ve been producing in the studio, …

Finally–Some Mojo!

I found my mojo this week!  We are finally moving things along in the glass area of the studio.  I’m working on an ornament request, but I’m moving spoon rests (no photo) and night lights along too!  Yay! I also had to keep up with the Ladies this week, giving them another ‘pumpkin treat’, a …

So Long Summer …

My garden is winding down …. We do have a handful of beautiful sunflowers (standing amazingly proud and tall) in their 5 gallon buckets, as DH wouldn’t let me cut any holes in the black mat he so painstakingly installed this spring … We also have the sweet potatoes, some beets, winter squash and the …
