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 …

Ahead of the Game …

Haha!  OK, kind of … for the moment!  But, I’m on top of my post – so there’s that.  News:  We are officially EMPTY NESTERS.  Baby boy moved into his apartment this week … Wow!  27 years of motherhood (including pregnancy) … DONE!!!  [I know, it’s never done until I’m dead, but … STILL!]  AND …

Slump and a kick-start!

So, I’ve been quiet.  I usually don’t get that way for too long …. I was in a creative slump.  Apparently, I was feeling stressed.  But now, with ENPC (Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course) and a large chunk of of nursing competencies completed … I feel better.  The fact that I can say ‘see you next …

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 the necessary shims made in my last attempt, so now I’ve added a …

Chainmail and glass …

Means I’m one happy girl.  I broke down on Monday and purchased an instant download tutorial for a weave that I’ve liked but couldn’t quite figure out (felt like I needed 3 more sets of hands to complete).  And now, I am a Four Winds mailing fool!  Here are some earrings (with stainless steel, copper …

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 …

Prayers & 3 kilns running …

And while I continue to take moments throughout the day to offer up prayers to the families and community in Connecticut, I go on about my business.  Did I give my kids extra hugs?  You bet!  We had our family time at the dinner table over home cooked Shrimp Alfredo and finished with our nightly …

Oops – I’m doing it again …

I apparently can’t help it and I don’t THINK there’s a med for it …  I’m scoping out a new hobby and chomping at the bit!  Since DH has put a temporary kibosh on the ‘L’ addition to the studio (so – no room for a potter’s wheel yet!) … I’ve found something interesting that’ll …

22 Years of Wedded Bliss …

OK – not always.  But we do have our moments … Like – now.   While granting me some alone/studio time, DH is making dinner, while the twins babysit the den (pups).  Awww … And, I’ve got to show off the sweet card he gave me.  Yeah – that would be his ‘southpaw’ chicken- scratch declaring …
