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 …

Down-time …

Got through the open house … It was a great gathering and I can’t thank my brother & sister-in-law enough, amazing food and indescribably helpful!  Gerard’s Catering – they’re awesome! Unfortunately, DH and I stink at capturing photos … But here’s a great one of my 92 y/o Grandpa T with the twins … Awww! …

Road trip, new family and a few projects

Started the week bringing a new family member home.  Meet our boy, Greco, AKA Rrricco Suave.  He’s a big goofy puppy, and DH loves his dorky ears (or lack thereof …)!  His coat is so velvety soft! Now that we’re settling into a routine, I’m making stuff in the studio.  A new batch of hot …

Surrounded by my family …

How could it be bad?  Did I pull off ‘Martha Stewart’?  Maybe … in moments … doesn’t matter!  We had a great celebration and I love these people! Merry Christmas 2015.  Happy 49th Birthday to DH … Bring on Jamaica, 2016!

OMGosh–Why do I do this to myself?

Jeeze Louise!  I’m nuts!  [I KNOW!!!]  But still … We’re less than a week out from Christmas II, and I’ve got so much to do!  It’s okay.  Deep breath.  We’ll get there.  So, while we are keeping up with two high school seniors (Oy Vay!), 4 week old puppies (soo cute!), our four-legged gang, and …

29 … and holding?

Happy Birthday to me!  I’d say I had a great 17th anniversary of my 29th birthday, but … It started out perfect.  Playing in the studio with the Mongrels and Gustifer, working on bowls and ornaments, followed by a dinner with the family at our traditional restaurant.  [My adult kids, BTW … all beautiful, healthy, …

Hi. My name is Kris …

And I am a crack craft addict.  Now that I’ve admitted it, I can show you what I made:      I have another couple of bracelets on the (kumihimo) disks, along with a watch idea.  I’m waiting for a few chain mail supplies to arrive … and, I think I want to play with 11/0 …

Exhausted … But – you know, in a good way … (AKA WWU)

The way that a third-shift nurse, mom, MAGICIAN feels when she crosses that marathon work-tour finish line with all pieces successfully juggled/managed.  Sure … at the final 20 minute push-point, it meant maintaining a 1:1 behavior-medicine watch, while acclimating a new team member, triage-assessing/documenting on our next cardiac patient AND greeting/briefing day shift staff … So, …

I had a post …

All ready to go, heavy on the WWU, but … I’ll talk about what’s going on in my studio instead:  Spoon rests, owls and renovating … Oh my!  I’m wrapping up my spoon rests!  12 down and 13 more to go!  But here’s a pic of the first 7, done and now ready for in-depth …

Christmas 2014

We had some fun Christmas moments this year: We (as a family unit) decided we needed to hit a few more stores on Christmas Eve … It’s quite an adventure if you haven’t tried it.  All sorts of interesting people-watching to be done, including us at times:  We found a hat just made for modeling …
