Summertime Happiness

What a great week!  We made some changes to the garden this year, adding five 4’ x 4’ raised beds, instead of the one 15 foot bed that I thought I had successfully negotiated for … Why? … Because, DH found these ‘ready made’ containers – and thought they would be easier/cheaper … Silly man!  …

What a wonderful day …

The weather was beautiful, our daughter was gorgeous … We had a great day! Moving on … I have a whole week to play in the studio.  I have my garden starts growing … and I’ve roped DH into building one more (of the two requested) raised garden beds.  It’s all about moving forward! The …

Good News/Bad News …

and catching up to date. So, the good news – I was off work this weekend.  The bad news – it was supposed to be our oldest daughter’s wedding weekend.  The good news – she has already chosen a new date for 2021. The good news, I’m feeling better.  I saw my doctor and we …

Baby Steps … Win the Race?

Well no.  But they keep you moving forward.  Our time is so segregated these days – but it’s all good!  So, I’m reporting on a little of this and a little of that! I have managed to do a couple of things in the studio.  Speaking of which – here is a reverse view from …

It’s been a while …

Busy, but with down-time

It’s Time to Make the Donuts …

Motherhood isn’t always easy … But poor Chloe is doing great!  And her piglets are growing and thriving.  While the Cowbell loves her babies very much, she let me know with a look or two this week that it’s not all bonbons and roses.  My sweet thing! The pups, who are 10 days old, are …

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 …

Murrini, Funshine & Pups

I used some of our 96 murrini to make a couple of pendants.  They’re cute (!) and they proved to me they are fire-safe/stable.  So – check for cane listings in our shop and on our FB page!  And, it’s that time of year!  Yep – Sangria Weather.  So – I made up a vat, …
