Patiently learning …

DH made the vit pot for me, so we can use square glass in it, instead of cutting circles for clay pots.  Much easier to prep and load, but the stainless steel pot has it’s own learning curve.  Add to it, I… Read More

Pendant-Making-Friday …

Well, because I can!  I’ve been fiddling with these all week.  While making more components and parts …   DH seems to think I should make some type of ‘ocean scene’ … Hmmm But, I’m being nice as the poor guy turns… Read More

Not sure if I’m coming or going …

Jeez Louise, my sleep schedule is a mess right now!  Seems I’m embracing this menopausal-nuttiness.  In between 10 hour slumbers, combined with a few blocks of no energy, I’m waking up after 3-5 hours, somewhere around  4am – wide awake and ready… Read More

Grand Opening, a Give-Away … and more!

First time this year …

I finally have all three kilns running!  Spoon rests, night lights, bowls/plates galore! And, I did a little painting tonight.  We’ll see what the kiln gods think … but I like what I have started.  I didn’t care for the diluted bubbles… Read More

Of 3 gallons of my best-ever hearty Chicken Noodle Soup.  Complete with water chestnuts (I’m allergic to celery), parsnip, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, corn, pea-pods … heavy on the onion, garlic and cream (all with magical healing powers), with a pinch of shredded… Read More

Researching–so it’s been a while …

But, I do finally have some new glass to show off:   Etched, slumped bottles … I like them! And, somewhere along the way, I got the crazy notion that I would like to love-on a miniature pig, so … I’m researching, have… Read More

But HE Started It!

OH!!!  It is SOO DH’s fault … He sent a de-funk Craig’s List item that promised a new storage rack/work station in my COE-90 designated work area.  HE emailed the no-good listing to me.  Now I WANT one!  Shelves for my frits,… Read More

So – It’s not all bad …

We met the tax-day deadline (umm, with 30+ hours to spare!)!  And, while Uncle Sam wasn’t so nice to us this year,  I don’t have to look for another job just yet.  Meanwhile … DH was busy all day Monday when a… Read More
