Oh My Goodness – It’s been a while …

I’m not dead … YET!  It’s just been an absolutely INSANE few weeks! Lets recap:  The twins turned 21 … SAGE WORDS:  Life doesn’t get any easier as they age – Just Sayin’!  I’ve got a kid in Ghana RIGHT NOW!  It’s too long of a story to get into, but let’s all just say …

Computers & Cute Puppies

Spent 3-4 hours this week fighting with my new computer, Windows 10 and technology.   Aaarrggh!  I now realize nothing is compatible with Windows 10.  Previously purchased (expensive) software programs (Corel, Excel, WinZip) need to be upgraded (‘at a discount’ … MY ARSE!), reinstalled, reconfigured … Good Lawdy!  But, my computer, my files and my plotter …

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 …

Down, but not out …

I’m working through a weird virus that has me sleeping most of my week away … Headache and body aches even through Motrin, when I’m awake.  I’m feeling better today (only needed a 3 hour mid-day nap), so I’m on the mend … Which is perfect, as our Sheeba had her puppies today (4 days …

Gah! ~

It’s that time of year again!  Yep, annual on-line nursing competency H.E.L.L. … To add to the fun, our educational expert decided to choose a print font visible only to the insect eye!  And I’M the ONE getting tested for age-specific appropriate skills, tools and techniques?!?  But, it’s over … for now! We had a …

Stencils and stamps and experiments …

Oh my!  First up – a few new slumped bottles in the works … Then a stamp platter I’ve wanted to work on for a while starting to take shape … So many stamps, so little time! And, my enamel experiment from weeks ago, finally stenciled and blasted … What to do with it now?  …

(WWU) Because not everyone reads the rule book …

We got to actually save a life this past weekend.  He was much too young and totally didn’t understand that his heart was NOT supposed to do THAT!  But it’s all good now, and our team did what was needed.  Pretty cool stuff! And, I had dinner with the (grade school) girls this week.  Always …

I had a post …

All ready to go, heavy on the WWU, but … I’ll talk about what’s going on in my studio instead:  Spoon rests, owls and renovating … Oh my!  I’m wrapping up my spoon rests!  12 down and 13 more to go!  But here’s a pic of the first 7, done and now ready for in-depth …

Finally …

(S)he sleeps.  Or, I slept … in the non-Pretty-Woman version of the tale.  But, ya know, it’s still a happy ending.  Crashing for 14 hours after a week long bout of insomnia, with 4 hour ‘cat naps’ in between several undesired periods of 24 hours of wakefulness.  Apparently, I was testing something in my system.  …

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: …
