Finally producing …

I’m a busy little bee today, finally getting projects moved along while starting a few more! Here are my ‘tie-dye paws’ – which will be 4-5 inch dishes once done.  Love them!!! And some of my sandblasted ornament/sun catchers.  (The wine has those freeze-n-fuse grapes from a few months ago; as the daughter of a …

Frit play …

What once started as an ‘oops’ project is now being trialed intentionally … a bright peacock spoon rest: And platters: Snowmen, Bon Appetite and Pumpkin Patch … yep, it’s a Creative Paradise (molds) kind of day.  Fingers crossed that I set my program right! Update … Success:  Love ‘em!  Just waiting for the kiln to …

The beat goes on …

Darn you Creative Paradise!  But, my mind was elsewhere, so I followed the firing schedule (even though, through previous experience NO LESS, I know better!) and messed up my project – and mold.  Aaargghhh!       To top it off – my next move was to mess up my ‘lil palette knife beach scene.  Gone is the …

I’ve been busy – and I like it!

I’m trying, re-trying and learning.  Let me show you:  Here are the fired pieces from previous posts;    Two coffin loads this week (Tuesday and today);    A close up of my first ‘palette knife’ trial (fingers crossed), peacock re-try WITH success (yay), and a new votive candle mold trial (didn’t quite work, but I …

L.A.M. –

Life After Maggie … is tougher than I was prepared for.  I didn’t realize I’d be grieving this much.  And it hits me at strange times throughout the day/night.  But, I haven’t cried today, so I feel like I’m advancing through the stages.  Maybe I’ll even sleep a bit tonight … [Oops – there I …

A good day …

A few good hours in the studio, and I’m one happy girl!  That added to the fact that the stitches are FINALLY out, I’m healing and starting to feel human again! So – my good day:  It actually started a few days ago, when DH and I took some items to local shops, and I ‘peddled my wares’ …

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 …

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 …

TGIS … Thank God it’s Sunny!!!

DH and I have been empty-nesters all week, as the twins are at camp.  So – I’ve spent the week in the pool (during the day – in the sunshine).  And played a bit in the studio in the evenings.  Here’s my coffin load, ready for slumping – and a [taboo] photo post-slumping (at 500 …

So far – so good …

Cuz INSOMNIA is my friend!!! It’s all good!  I’ve started my peacock bracelet … it was touch and go there for a bit, as I struggled to interpret/decipher ‘beading language’ and FOCUS really old eyes on tiny ‘lil beads, but I like what I’ve got going:      I’ve glued my peacock mosaic – just waitin’ …
