Prepping for Harvest Fest

So, we will be off to Brighton Farmer’s Market Harvest Fest in T-7 hours … We put in some work, but we’re as ready as we’re gonna be!  All but Chloe, that is … who managed to catch a few fading Summer-rays in the pool this week!  (She does love her float!) PenDots and glass …

Can’t Stop It …

I know … I KNOW!!!  I’m supposed to be cooking for TWO!  I KNOW THIS ~ but, it can’t be stopped!  I started with what I hoped would be a yummy, roasted cauliflower recipe (Pinterest strikes again!) … No offense, but it was just about mush, ready to be mashed cauliflower.  Who does that?  I’d make …

Not much news …

OK – a little bit of news … We’re prepping for (hopefully) the two shows we do each year (one confirmed, one pending) … I know we will be at Brighton Harvest Fest on 9/23 … come and say ‘Hi’, if you get the chance … So, I’m prepping inventory, boxing jewelry, etc.  And, DH …

Marching On …

What an A$$-kicking week!  Sent our youngest off for Boot Camp (x4 months).  I can’t tell you how many times the ER nurse/Momma Bear in me was in conflict.  But, he is 20 years old – makes his own decisions … and I couldn’t ‘ground him’ if I wanted to … And then, the evil-biologic …

Amazing!

I got a wee bit side-tracked today.  My new phone arrived – and I had some learning to do.  Samsung Galaxy S8+ … Oh My Goodness … I love it!  I’ve been taking pictures, pictures – and more pictures!  What an awesome phone camera!!!  Little to no photo-editing to correct colors or lighting needed … …

Momma got her Flock together …

Yep!  We got all four of our kids together (along with my sister, brother-in-law and niece, my dad and stepmom,  my grandpa and my mother-in-law) for a family dinner.  I’m a happy girl!  The twins turn 20 in just a few days, our oldest will be 25 in a few weeks, followed by our oldest …

Not sure if I’m coming or going …

Jeez Louise, my sleep schedule is a mess right now!  Seems I’m embracing this menopausal-nuttiness.  In between 10 hour slumbers, combined with a few blocks of no energy, I’m waking up after 3-5 hours, somewhere around  4am – wide awake and ready to DO STUFF.  I tried to self-correct by pushing through an 18 hour …

Road trip, new family and a few projects

Started the week bringing a new family member home.  Meet our boy, Greco, AKA Rrricco Suave.  He’s a big goofy puppy, and DH loves his dorky ears (or lack thereof …)!  His coat is so velvety soft! Now that we’re settling into a routine, I’m making stuff in the studio.  A new batch of hot …

Having a clean studio ROCKS!!!

I have three kilns running and more projects planned.  What a productive week … I worked on some jewelry, wrapping up a custom cab order.  Here’s a double dichro dragonfly pendant moving along (in the kiln now for a fire-polish) and a couple of penDot rings!   I have the coffin running with future spoon …

So, it takes a while …

I’m 3 days into it, but WOW!  There is an actual studio under all of this!!!  I’m thinking [hoping, praying … BEGGING!] one more day ought to do it.  We’ll see … A few days ago, a fusing group on Facebook started posting studio-selfies, I mean videos – way cooler than selfies!  [BTW – thank …
