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 …

So Long Summer …

My garden is winding down …. We do have a handful of beautiful sunflowers (standing amazingly proud and tall) in their 5 gallon buckets, as DH wouldn’t let me cut any holes in the black mat he so painstakingly installed this spring … We also have the sweet potatoes, some beets, winter squash and the …

Staying Busy …

Tubby’s babies are growing, growing and GROWING!  Here’s a quick photo of a couple of her boys … Look who’s peeking! I’m still scratching out time to work in the studio – keeping stock up, filling orders, uploading shop listings:    And, I’m still knitting … Only one pair done this week (so 2 more …

Enameling–what NOT to do … and other news

Finally played with copper glass enameling last night.  I used the sifting method, and it wasn’t as easy as I thought.  It made me realize I prefer slightly larger ‘canvases’ … But, one very important lesson learned regarding what NOT to do:  Don’t drop that 1450 degree piece of red hot glass/metal, as you’re transferring …

Cuz It’s THAT Time of Year!
