Busy … But with Downtime

We’ve had a busy week … welcoming pups on Tuesday.  Our Georgie is doing a great job as a first time Mom, but we’re staying close to keep an eye on all.  So – I’ve had plenty of time to work on cards – stamping, masking, die-cutting, coloring … And(!) – I organized my growing …

I’m Not Dead … Yet ;)

Sorry for the really long lapse between postings.  The reasons are varied, but combine busy-overload with creative funk, along with a bit of cleaning and reorganizing.  And … officially entering my 5th decade of life.  OUCH! My family knows me so well … And they all came to celebrate with dinner and cake at our …

They’re Done … Almost

I spent the better part of the week bringing the spoon rests thru to their final slump.  All but three.  This other one had air bubbles I didn’t like, so it’s in the baby kiln for a flip and fire, along with some murrini nibs.  I hope to use the nibs (otherwise ‘useless’) in an …

Welcome 2019

DH and I quietly rolled into 2019 with a new family member. Meet Giorgana … or Georgie, for short!  She’s 5 months old, and such a sweetheart!  The bulldog gang, along with the rest of the crew have already bonded… And Chloe likes to ‘mother’ her! And, I’m cleaning and reorganizing the studio, with a …

Cooler weather …

Time to get out of the pool and back into the swing of things!  DH got a bit ahead of himself … and bought a boat.  I have to say, though – I like the view from inside the pond (boat)! I stamped a few card fronts, ready for coloring.  But, decided I needed those …

So this just happened…

Somewhere along the way, DH decided to enlarge the dried up baby pond we have in our backyard.  Sure, I said – thinking to myself, “yeah, someday …” Nope.  That excavator spent a week at my house, and ‘A Boy With His Toy’ got busy.  Turns out what I had envisioned vs. what time, his …

Minimal Adulting here …

I did some coloring this week.  That led to organizing my available markers, deciding which colors/color-families I wanted to grow … A wee bit of online shopping … (Umm, Mother’s Day is coming …)  More coloring and new stamps to color (I’m not too sure about that clown, but the witch and Frankie are pretty …

Yeah, so …

I’m taking this “NOT ADULTING” to a WHOLE new level… DH is cooking dinner – IF/WHEN he wants to eat;  I haven’t done laundry … in a REALLY long time;  I am stocking up on stamps and card making supplies – LIKE A BOSS(!!!);   I’m keeping the sisters fed and happy.  [Here’s Ro, soaking up …

Ahhh …

RELIEF!  Got through the annual tax date with our favorite accountant.  We really cut it down to the wire this year, finishing our sorting and tallying for the 3 businesses/4 jobs just 2 short hours before our appointment (with a 45 minute drive to make!)!  YIKES! After that painful deadline, I am so not ‘adulting’ …

Finally!

But – not what I’m supposed to be doing … Yeah, well – we’ll get to that.* I made cards.  Bona fide, ready-for-giving greeting cards! And, I’m playing with up-next designs.  I stumbled on some of my long-ago handmade paper (from 6 years ago!) – and decided it would be a great background for a …
