T-8 hours

AKA – Dishes are still spinning …  Lil Sis will be home in 8 hours.  She has left Ghana, and is making her way from Amsterdam as I type.  I will be so glad to have her back in Michigan!!! We got through our first adult-children Christmas fairly well, considering it was early in the …

November 17-24, 2017

Wow, what a week!  We started with Arts & Greens … A special Thank You(!) to all who stopped, shopped and visited with us!!!  We had a great time, despite the torrential pouring of rain that was oozing down the greenhouse wall, creating a river through the middle of our space … [Doh!]   Once the …

Welcome 2016 …

A good Christmas, a good New Year’s Eve, and work-weekend one (of 52) down*… I like it!  [* – and that’s all I have to say about Weekend Wrap Up/ER nursing today, while I ruminate and mentally readjust!] Plus … I have a beautiful family; Flooring is complete in my bedroom (which means we’re only like …

A minute to relax …

We had our show.  It was great!  A lot of work, but what a wonderful end to our ‘season’!  Here is our 24 foot long ‘booth’ (the only photo I took, as we were still setting up … DOH!) In the meantime, my studio is trashed(!!!), but there is no down-time for the wicked weary …

Stepping into the light and embracing the day

We lost power on Saturday.  Repair estimate had us getting electricity on Christmas night at 1130pm.  So, I had started to wrap my head around embracing what I would officially call the ‘Dark Christmas’ … I was excited about the prospect of ZERO cooking (watch out Taco Bell, here we come).  But, unlike many of …

Busy, Busy – Birthday, Birthday

It’s been a busy week:  Monday was … well, MONDAY (‘nuff said!); Tuesday we had early morning wake-up to get to Metro (pups did great! New family in MS and VT) and visited with my grandparents; Today, the Twins turned 16!!!  To celebrate – we did what they allow us to do (as a family) …

Happy Independence Week …

Yep, I stretched that day out to a whole week!  Family time, play time, and plenty of food!  All while giving thanks for those who [have] provide[d] for my independence … Not much to show from the studio (although, I am sporting a sunburn from time in the pool) … Here’s a picture of the …

Happy as … Larry(?)

I’d never heard that particular idiom (link for the origin of this phrase can be found here), but – I’m happy, so go ahead – call me Larry … Great week!  Good food/family time, a bit of sunshine in the pool, lots of romp time with the pooches, and I’m pleased with my studio work …

Studio Time, Food and Family …

Had a bit more studio time … so I learned a bit about David Alcala’s glass tapestry (amazing!), and played with flexi-glass … had some troubles getting started (it’s NOT supposed to roll and wrinkle like that), but had more success with fine frit and mica:     And here’s my “object d’art” … basically …

Ahhh … Friday

Brings about the end of another week … but a good week.  A few things from the studio:  New slumped bottle, “Cocktail”; more boiled blanks – I’m still working out the tweaks, but I like them, while slowly building up to a load (for the coffin) of [eventual] bowls and what not; and I tried my …
