Welcome 2019

DH and I quietly rolled into 2019 with a new family member. Meet Giorgana … or Georgie, for short!  She’s 5 months old, and such a sweetheart!  The bulldog gang, along with the rest of the crew have already bonded… And Chloe likes to ‘mother’ her! And, I’m cleaning and reorganizing the studio, with a …

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year …

We had our first snowfall this week (a semi-sticking kind, anyway).  I love snow (from inside a heated space!)!  So pretty … I’ve been keeping a couple of kilns busy for the last few days.  We’re keeping up with ornaments, one mini load at a time (which somehow makes it easier for me) … I …

Squeezing out the last of summer …

We are totally taking advantage of our Indian Summer – and the heater in our pool.  Pool dayz … Gotta love ‘em!  In between, we had a vitrigraph (murrini cane) pull.  Requested yellow and black … make for a Green Lantern-esque cane.  Hmmm … I like it! Our Neo pups are seven weeks old, and …

Snowmageddon 2018

Michigan snowfall has postponed Christmas II (with Dad/et al.) … The predicted snow storm proved to be too much … So, while our tree is ready with gifts waiting, the menu set, the house prepared – we’re on hold, and watch the snow fall … Of course, now I’m doing it from my studio.  And, …

I want to be good …

I’m TRYING to be good.  But – I just spent the last 3 hours attempting to save the lives of virtual (plastic) babies … Judged by how quickly I threw ‘life saving items’ “IN MY BASKET(!!!)” … And, I’m not done yet.  On Thursday, I’ll endure another 90 minutes playing ‘lets pretend’ with REAL plastic …

Turning 29 and other news …

Celebrated another anniversary of ‘Turning 29’ … DH and I had a quiet week.  I didn’t cook a single thing, and he made cake!   Hmm, I might finally have this birthday thing figured out … We watched over our pups, who are slowly opening their eyes: I made some progress on my double-knit polka dot …

A Little of This …

A little of that.  A quiet week, while we watch over our pups – ‘babysitting’ at it’s most fun! I ran the kilns a few times.  Most recently, with these ornaments and night lights: Put together a shrimp stir fry, that turned out pretty amazing: And, I’ve started a new knitting project, thanks to KnitPicks.  …

Summer Lovin’ …

DH surprised me tonight by suggesting a vit pull.  Aww … Thanks, babe!  So – we did.  It’s Bullseye aqua, teal, steel blue, emerald green, powder blue, warm white and clear.  I’m happy with the results! And then, I stole a few hours for enamel projects … I love the cat & dog spoon rests.  …

Clean Studio = Tired, But HAPPY!

Spent a couple of days this week cleaning up/organizing my haven, uhh STUDIO!  Good golly, it’s been a while.  But she’s all back together – I can find stuff, AND I have open spaces to work!  What a cool idea!!! DH and I had our pink cane pull.  While it didn’t do what I thought …

Another vit pull … and stuff

We tried a pink/purple pull this week.  Good results, I think! I’ve been restocking spoon rests – along with some new designs – 8 prepped for the kiln.  Also catching up on night lights [no photo], along with a couple of Easter bunnies … They are adorable and I had fun making them!   I’ve …
