Finally–Some Mojo!

I found my mojo this week!  We are finally moving things along in the glass area of the studio.  I’m working on an ornament request, but I’m moving spoon rests (no photo) and night lights along too!  Yay! I also had to keep up with the Ladies this week, giving them another ‘pumpkin treat’, a …

Laying low …

WWU:  Assisted fellow-staff with one nasty case of Norovirus this past weekend.  While I cleaned and scrubbed [head to toe] with soap, sanitizer and BLEACH, I woke up Tuesday moving slow, with pains (head ache and back ache) … Jumping to the only sensical conclusion, I announced to the family that I was suffering from Noro-meningitis …

It’s been a while …

So, I have a little of this and a little of that to report on: The twins will be heading off to camp shortly.  So, DH and I will be ‘empty nesters’.  Sort-of … but not.  Our four-legged family has grown.  Blondie had her babies (in under 19 hours!) and I took a quick shot …

Cabin Fever?

We have so many great things going on right now, and yet: We have puppies (and they’re so stinkin’ cute)!    And a houseful of mood swings/raging hormones – thanks to twin teenagers … I’m finally growing skin/healing! Yay!!!  And, it’s tax season …    I’ve made some new bracelets, learned new patterns!    And, …

Knitting, candles and wine … Oh my!

Lost heat out in the studio.  Darn too-small propane tank anyway!  I’ve talked to DH about getting a real (house sized) one out there … maybe now is the time.  It’s a balmy 44 degrees in there right now.  Without water (drained the pipes in preparation for Snowmageddon).  Of course!  I have 3 custom orders …

Busy ~ but I’m lovin’ it!

What a week!  I’ve been taking serious advantage of insomnia.  I have 3 kilns running, and so much to report … Here’s what I worked on tonight:  Fingers crossed it turns out as promising as I hope! And, I finished my fish ‘sculpture’ … the Twins gave it a ‘thumbs up’, and it’s kinda growing …

Happy Independence Week …

Yep, I stretched that day out to a whole week!  Family time, play time, and plenty of food!  All while giving thanks for those who [have] provide[d] for my independence … Not much to show from the studio (although, I am sporting a sunburn from time in the pool) … Here’s a picture of the …

But I love it … grumble, grumble

Not having a fun week.  Too busy.  I didn’t get my chores done in time to go to a work outing tonight (- ER folks know how to have some fun too, darnit!).  AND – I’m missing my studio! [Lower lip sticking out, feet stomping] But – my week is full of puppies, family time …

Speed Bump = Clean Studio + Adele

So a fairly substantial life ‘speed-bump’ has altered my previous MINE-MINE-MINE studio plans … Damn Evil-Biologic and her inability to act like a responsible adult anyway …  So – feeling less than creative, I’ve spent time cleaning the studio and rockin’ with Adele (with a few of the Neo’s howling in the background to join …

And so it begins …

Summer – ahhhh … But wait … WE  have a houseful of teenagers … As we were sitting at the dinner table, playing some post-BBQ rummy, I was already practicing the art of deep breathing while ignoring my youngest daughter and oldest son bicker like preschoolers.  At one point I was waiting for the wailing cry of …
