Good Times – because I have a sailboat and a fat pad …

On x-ray, that is … Which means I have a fractured arm …Yep, good times! Full of grace and good manners, we went to a retired-fuser’s home this week to see what she was selling. After the decision was made to purchase her kiln, grinder, and various glass/accessories, I decided to trip and fall, busting …

Gearing up …

I spent the last 48 hours surfing the ‘net … learning techniques and gathering supplies.  Oh boy!  I am eyeing some new inks (copic markers and Tim Holtz crayons); prepping for our fall shows with more jewelry/displays; ordering (domino) art tile supplies and stamps; and getting ready to load up the kilns with night lights, …

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, …

Christmas in July/August, Pup Watch and Oh …

Did I mention – I’M ON VACATION!  And – have you seen that MOON?   While we aren’t traveling anywhere – so it’s a working vacation – still, I’m HAPPY!  (THAT MOON!!!  Whew!  SOO glad I’m not in the ER right now …) I’m splitting time working on fused glass Christmas ornaments with Kumihimo, playing with …

Spring Cleaning … Also known as: What to do when you are avoiding grown-up responsibilities (although, I DID get my nursing competencies done … and – hey,  I have 6 [count THEM … S-I-X !!!] more DAYS until taxes are DUE! … It’s called procrastination, people – EMBRACE IT!!!) … So … I can’t be …

Some good, some bad … But – the 3rd time’s the charm!

The GOOD:  I’ve been producing in the studio; I have a few leads for ‘show-casing’ my ART;  I’ve been working on some glass special requests (… I absolutely love those!);  My family (both 2- and 4-legged) are healthy and well; I finally have a solid game plan to fix my ‘lil medical issue; I’ve lost …

More good stuff … coming

I’ve been playing a bit in the studio, and doing a wee bit of shopping.  Someone has copper enameling equipment coming.  [Shhhh – don’t tell DH!]  And, a few new molds and glass from my favorite glass shop.  Maybe I have some stands from NC on the way.  Oh – and possibly a couple bails …

I did say crazy – Right?!?

Oh, yeah – you betcha!  But, I almost have the coffin kiln loaded with ornaments and ready to run.  Look at what I made tonight … It’s ‘Ornament Central’ up in here … Why?  I dunno …but I like it!  The days are ticking down to the art show, and I still have so much …

It’s the little things …

I’m so excited.  We have spent the last 10 days without our (clothes) dryer.  Some electronic part shorted out, and try as he did, DH couldn’t fix it.  To and from the repair shop it went … THREE TIMES!  It’s back today, AND FULLY OPERATIONAL!  This means – my loving Fred Sanford (DH) can remove the …

It’s crunch time …

The next 8 days are gonna be so crazy/busy … good thing I love stress! I have adorable kids to get me through! The babies will start moving on to their new homes starting next week … but, we are keeping one.  Since the twins are learning Spanish (so I am too – a little) …
