Santas, Snowmen, and Spoon Rests–Oh My …

I’ve had some major mojo in the studio this week, while I’ve worked hard to restock some much-needed inventory … Tonight was all about ornaments … I’m working on Santa, Snowmen and Nut-Cracker Soldiers.  In the between time, I’m building Christmas Tree night lights, along with other night lights (Caribbean, psychedelic and rainbow!) – all …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Interesting, frustrating, painful … you decide

So, I’ve had 3 kilns running for the last few days.  My experiments were … interesting and frustrating, but have potential … maybe.  I also have a few other ideas to try.     And, I have some sweet dichro (jewelry) pieces almost ready for listing:      My ‘Christmas run’ is promising.  And, I’m cooking the …

Christmas 2012 …

We all had a great day!  And, I’m loving the fact that DH and I are now old enough we don’t have to do the Crazy Christmas Circuit – where you drive your cranky little ones all over the state and back again to make the ‘Christmas rounds’.  This is much better!  A relaxed family …
