I still have 7 days …

before our show.  So, ya know, not panicking … I’m too busy making, making and playing!  Will I get it all done?  NOPE!  It’s ok! Here’s what we’ve got: I’ve started a tapestry trial; My crackle bowl with color reactions; I made my own mylar stencils, as I was getting frustrated with powder wafers.  (Had …

All it took was Central Air …

Oh Yeah!  The BRAT strikes again.  DH – and licensed friend – are plumbing the studio for AC.  In honor of the soon-to-be COOL temps, I finally have a kiln running (the baby kiln for small jewelry pieces).  And I used my new work table.  Sure, I’m still sitting here in the studio – making …

Tragedy … But, I’m Grateful …
