Cane, cane and more cane

We had a fun vitrigraph cane pull last week.  I finally got around to chopping, photographing and listing …   Then I played around with a couple of mixed bag options … I like it!  I’ll be listing a few in our… Read More

Wowzers …

Couple of crummy cases at work, mixed in with some great patients and holiday-weekend volume left me feeling road-weary Monday morning … Just Wow!!! So, I crashed hard.  Spent a fair amount of energy plotting out my listings for the shop … Maybe… Read More

Still Learning …

We had another vitrigraph pull this week … We’ve got a nice variety of cane going – while we continue to learn what to do and what not to do!  Now, if SOMEONE would just finish making my cane-chopper! I played with… Read More

Not sure if I’m coming or going …

Slump and a kick-start!

So, I’ve been quiet.  I usually don’t get that way for too long …. I was in a creative slump.  Apparently, I was feeling stressed.  But now, with ENPC (Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course) and a large chunk of of nursing competencies completed… Read More
