Laying low … but, NOT

While my studio is quiet this week, our house is busy … We have puppies (AGAIN)!  Labor started in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  Many, many hours later, with lots of love, encouragement and patience – we welcomed blue, velvety-soft babies!  Which keeps us close to the whelping boxes.  Thank goodness for our downstairs …

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 …

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 …

Before it begins …

Decals, dichroic extract, screen printing …

Oh my!  Busy week in the studio, as I work on and wrap up some projects and special requests.  Angels, dichroic badge reels, pendants, and a special ornament (… here come the pictures):        I still have more dichro cabs to run, and a few other projects I’m working on … such a good week!  …

Christmas 2012 …

We all had a great day!  And, I’m loving the fact that DH and I are now old enough we don’t have to do the Crazy Christmas Circuit – where you drive your cranky little ones all over the state and back again to make the ‘Christmas rounds’.  This is much better!  A relaxed family …
