T-5 days …

Actually, I have 2 more days to prepare for Christmas … [Fingers Crossed – but I think we’re looking okay!]   Just a few more items to purchase, projects to complete and gifts to wrap.  And get through an ER nursing weekend.  It’s all good!  We’ll be ready to start the celebrations on Christmas Eve … …

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 …

And they’re off …

So starts the countdown … for the holidays.  Since I’ve decided to turn my little hobby into a business of sorts, I didn’t realize the additional ‘stress’ I willingly added to my load.  Hmmm … crazy me.  But it’s all good.  I can handle it.  I love stress.  Yep.  Sure.  Thanksgiving, craft show, Christmas shopping, …

Viruses, Goblins, and Full Moons … oh my!

So, I’m making some progress – finally feel like my head is no longer sharing space with the virus tumor (Yes – it was a tumor, liquefying my brain – or so I whined to my co-workers on Sunday).  Anyway – the head is mine again – so the insomnia returns.  It’s ok … I’ll …

Charging my batteries …

While I don’t hold it against Maggie, the rubbing of the Buddha belly did NOT work for this past Sunday … (must have needed more candles.)   And – if I give it much thought, I’m already fearing this weekend, as I watch the moon get larger and larger … Scientifically proven or not, those of …

Prioritizing the To-Do list …

Got through another weekend – or as I like to announce to my coworkers on Monday morning, as I leave the ER achy, tired and drained of most of my compassion … one weekend closer to retirement.  Which is funny to me, as that particular tunnel (retirement) is so long, I see no light or …

I’ve got the bug …

Well, actually I have TWO … the cold virus (BUG), as some lovely child felt compelled to sneeze into my face at work this weekend … But – what I’m talking about is I’ve reacquired the web design/developing bug … About 5 yrs ago, I got it, and taught myself enough to develop and run …

Other (non-bowl) projects in the works …

The list of glass ideas is bubbling over … I do love our bowls, but it’s fun to try other things too.  For instance – I have been wanting to try ‘quenching bottles’ for months now … finally getting around to some silly supplies (sturdy bucket and fine mesh screen) I need in order to …

Hello world!

I’m taking advantage of some insomnia to create this web site of our glass designs – complete with blog. My studio was built this past February.  Since then, I have come to love this space, even ‘living’ in it for a time in June when I broke my knee – as stairs were difficult to …
