Pool Time, Dinner and the Cowbell …

Dinner with the (high school) girls, along with a bit of pool time this week, and – Oh, life is good!  [Thanks ladies!!!] My kilns are cooking (photos to come), and I’ve got my next vit stack ready.  Shooting for an ocean/water scheme, and I’m hopeful we can have our pull before heading back to …

Oh My Goodness …

I did it again!  Chalk it up to this time of year; a knee-jerk response to a bit of family drama; too many learning opportunities – or just an internet-shopping glass junkie spree … But I got my fix!  MmHmm!!! I watched a reverse enamel painting tutorial … so, I have a fine collection of …

Good, Fat & Happy!

A good appointment with our tax man means CHS gets to keep making cool stuff!  [Well, yeah, sure – AFTER a weekend of ER nursing fun!] Our pups are growing by the minute!  Momma Xena is eating like a champ and her fat ‘lil piglets will be opening their eyes soon! So, I’m happy!  Had …

[Whine!] … It’s that time of year!

Glass Expo is this week.  Nope, I still can’t go.  Dangit!  So – I’m staying busy … It’s been several weeks in the making, but I wanted to make some ‘cloud tiles’ … So, I did.  And, tonight I cut those beauties up into future pendants: Here are the tiles going in, mapped out for …
