I’m Not Dead … Yet ;)

Sorry for the really long lapse between postings.  The reasons are varied, but combine busy-overload with creative funk, along with a bit of cleaning and reorganizing.  And … officially entering my 5th decade of life.  OUCH! My family knows me so well … And they all came to celebrate with dinner and cake at our …

Mildly progressive …

Yep – I’ve been a mildly progressive  BUM this week!  I was helping DH with our pups, moving along stamp identification, making glass, cooking – oh, and catching the last rays of summer sunshine!  [While Monday was cooler temps – so far we’re 5/5 days in the pool and I hope to add one more …

Oh My Goodness – It’s been a while …

I’m not dead … YET!  It’s just been an absolutely INSANE few weeks! Lets recap:  The twins turned 21 … SAGE WORDS:  Life doesn’t get any easier as they age – Just Sayin’!  I’ve got a kid in Ghana RIGHT NOW!  It’s too long of a story to get into, but let’s all just say …

Down, but not out …

I’m working through a weird virus that has me sleeping most of my week away … Headache and body aches even through Motrin, when I’m awake.  I’m feeling better today (only needed a 3 hour mid-day nap), so I’m on the mend … Which is perfect, as our Sheeba had her puppies today (4 days …

Cruisin’ Through Summer …

I’m still playing with my reverse enameling and stamps.  A few more to finish and I will have a major coffin load of spoon rests & dishes.  Tonight’s progress:    I was painting while heating up our vit kiln for this brown/tan pull.  Oops!  Having said that … SOMEONE (DH) was right there with the …

Still Learning …

We had another vitrigraph pull this week … We’ve got a nice variety of cane going – while we continue to learn what to do and what not to do!  Now, if SOMEONE would just finish making my cane-chopper! I played with a few recipes, too.  We made tahini – which gives our 25+ year …

Cabbage-Fest …

Cabbage-fest has officially begun!  We cut into our Dutch Flathead this week.  Made the (Emeril) side dish – which I didn’t love, along with a huge pot of Smoked Sausage & Cabbage Soup – modified for my allergies … Which I do love!  We have enough whole frozen leaves AND a batch of chopped cabbage …

Hibernating in July

So, the house is back in order, thank goodness!  Which should mean I’ve accomplished tons in the studio.  Sadly, it’s not true.  I spent the first three days this week convincing myself I did NOT have ER-acquired meningitis.  Turns out, if one burns the candle at both ends for too long, [my] body goes into …

Winter Wonderland and New Arrivals …

Makes for a full week!  On Tuesday, DH and I helped our Vet bring nine new pups into the light.  Always so amazing … Now with 3 days under our belt, Blondie and babes are settling into a nice routine of ‘life on the outside’ … and pups are growing BY THE MINUTE! Fortunately for …

Ginger got her glass on …

Cheesy, I know … But – I’m happy!  I have all three kilns ROCKIN’ (Hummmm … Click … CLACK!!!)!  I’m getting some custom items moving along … [Plus – a few future badge reels I’d like to dedicate to all ‘Nurses who boycott The View/JB/WG’ … SNARL!] Finally got around to photographing some shop listings …
