Harvest Fest, Blood Moon and Puppies …

We were at Harvest Fest in Brighton this Saturday.  A great day – with beautiful weather, lots of folks and too little sleep for me. (Note the frumpy, less-than-welcoming, pained look on the face of ‘the artist’ in the corner … oops!)  Still, a great show for us … and I’ll work on my facial …

Cleaning and procrastinating …

DH is helping me get back to glass … He built a new work station with MEGA frit storage.  Awww – check it out!  (Not quite done … but close enough for photos!).  The other end has larger cubbies to store all of my enamels!  SWEET!!!  Thanks, Honey! So, while I haven’t fired up the …

Feeling Bummed–but working through it …

Tough ER nursing weekend … I was in in charge (yeah, BAD idea) with lots of summer folks (volume – fortunately NOT acuity – PRAISE JESUS!) … Thank Goodness for some great staff, but I don’t like changing hats that frequently.  Add too many bodies to count (patients PLUS their ‘posse’) – all wanting water, …

2015 … So far, so good!

Too much learning … ???

Typically, I’d say there is no such thing, but … I think I pushed it too far today.  I’ve been perusing the ‘net, getting my fill of all things beading, chainmaille and jewelry, when I stumbled on this … Now, I know artists throughout history have been inclined to use just about anything as their …

Watching grass grow …

That’s about how exciting surgical recovery is, on a day to day basis … for me.  [No offense to lawn maintenance operators …]  Or, more accurately, waiting for skin to grow (incisions to heal) … exciting stuff, I tell you!  Or, it would be, if that’s all I had going on. Lucky for me, I …

Busy with baby steps …

I’m still a knitting-maniac while I wait not-so-patiently to be feeling better.  Here are my latest quick-knit projects.     And, I tried my hand at chainmaille (jewelry style, of course) … I like it.  So, I’ve been surfing for much needed supplies and equipment (cuz I have too much time on my hands)! I’m …
