On The Mend …

Both physically and creatively – with baby steps!  I must not have been successful at the dodging-and-weaving game with our swarm of flu/URI-crud patients last weekend in the E.R. … I’ve been fighting sinus pain/snot and body aches this week – the best way I know:  Lots of vitamin C (orange juice), strong medicine (ummm, …

It’s the 20 Year Anniversary …

Of turning 29 … Yep, that’s what I celebrated this week.  I’ve spent the last several years avoiding specific numbers, while I slowly acknowledge – and am just about ready to – fully gear-up – and possibly embrace … turning 50 (read: F.I.F.T.Y; “The BIG 5-0”!!!) … Yeah, sure … IN ANOTHER 363 days. It’s …

Let me introduce you …

To the coolest tool ever!  And such a small investment.  After struggling for years, look at what I can do … Such small holes!  It’s called a Dremel Work Station, and mine cost about $40 (I love Amazon!).      So, I’ve been working on necklaces and cabs.  Lots of them!       Now to take …

The mad scientist … ???

Or the Mad Hatter … or just plain crazy.  Whatever …  The experiments continue!  I do love the day of the internet!  Much to the annoyance of DH (… and my accountant … and my bank account …).  Sooo much to learn!  I have [quite] a few different experimental pots brewing on the (bunsen) burners: …

We interrupt this technology …

To bring you an afternoon with internet searches and technical support.  My favorite … trying to figure out why something computer/electronic isn’t working.  But special thanks to Mike at USCutters, and my fancy plotter is up and running again!!!  (Now, I have no idea why my other, less expensive Eclips is misbehaving … but that’s …

It’s Complicated …

This weekend, while at work someone asked me a couple of questions: 1.  How long have you been a nurse? [Oh! … Oh!  Wait … I know the answer to this one!!]  “Umm … 24 years.” 2.  Do you still like it? [Oh … Umm … Well … So, you see – it’s complicated… (You …

Back in the Saddle again …

Guess what?  I have water in my studio!!!  I KNOW, right?!?!  How incredibly cool is that!  So – from here on out, most days that end in ‘Y’, you can find me in the studio … Those projects I had going from the last post are done:  A stringer bowl and several spoon rests (12 …

Chainmail and glass …

Means I’m one happy girl.  I broke down on Monday and purchased an instant download tutorial for a weave that I’ve liked but couldn’t quite figure out (felt like I needed 3 more sets of hands to complete).  And now, I am a Four Winds mailing fool!  Here are some earrings (with stainless steel, copper …

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’ …

T minus 4 …

And the shopping is done!  Sweet.  Plus – I received an early Christmas present … Don’t you LOVE her?  I do! DH says it’s a pretty fine line between Betty Boop Nurse and HER!    I say, “Choose carefully!” Spent just a bit of time in my studio this evening … My sister has requested …
