What a wonderful day …

The weather was beautiful, our daughter was gorgeous … We had a great day! Moving on … I have a whole week to play in the studio.  I have my garden starts growing … and I’ve roped DH into building one more (of the two requested) raised garden beds.  It’s all about moving forward! The …

IT WORKED …

DH is a happy camper!  Our Corned Beef Soup is amazing, and he has officially requested that it be added to our Recipe Book. Meanwhile, I am crocheting the ‘fast hats’ … here is another ‘Rainbow Plum’ to add to our growing display.  I feel like we have a ‘Baby’ hat, now a ‘Mama’ hat …

Still Learning – While keeping myself ready …

Again, another week with a huge blow.  It’s not fully understand yet – and I’m giving myself some time … But. it will be okay. I am creating – in the kitchen and with my yarn … Look at this bean soup, along with a nice ham/cheese/egg casserole to keep someone busy …      LOVE …

Excited, Sad – and a Celebration

I have lots of things going on in the studio.  I received a bunch of silicon molds for F-N-F fun … Along with a few new stencils to play with … And, a ‘dirty pour’ kit from UGC.  Time to bust out my kitchen torch … DH helped me change the stuck relay in my …

Marching On …

What an A$$-kicking week!  Sent our youngest off for Boot Camp (x4 months).  I can’t tell you how many times the ER nurse/Momma Bear in me was in conflict.  But, he is 20 years old – makes his own decisions … and I couldn’t ‘ground him’ if I wanted to … And then, the evil-biologic …

Momma got her Flock together …

Yep!  We got all four of our kids together (along with my sister, brother-in-law and niece, my dad and stepmom,  my grandpa and my mother-in-law) for a family dinner.  I’m a happy girl!  The twins turn 20 in just a few days, our oldest will be 25 in a few weeks, followed by our oldest …

Broken wing = moving slow

But, enjoying the moments!  From a studio standpoint, I can only push my right arm so far … So, it’s pre-cut busy work for me.  [And a promise to clean my studio … um, tomorrow!]  My sweet sister sent me this beautiful get-well bouquet of roses – so yes, I will clean my studio! I’m …

T-32 hours …

And, it looks like most of this one is on me … ‘SssAllGoooood!  Wow.  I’m not whining – or stressing, but could we have just 2 or 3 more plates to keep spinning in the air right now?  Combine college twins [who one might hope could be self-sufficient … SILLY GIRL!], with an overloaded DH, …

So much going on …

I knew this would be a crazy couple of weeks – what with turning 29 again!  [… Oh, yeah – and the presidential election …]  Since I can only control what happens in MY REALM, I can safely report we’ve been busy; Life and glass go on … I continue my battle with time, power surges …

0-60mph in 2.9 seconds …

Not sure what I planned for this week – but I didn’t expect what I got!  So it started well enough, with a COE 96 (100+ sheets) glass delivery filling up my (old) studio! But then it got nutty!  I am sorry to say that Zen Artisan Boutique is out of business.  Yep … before …
