So far, so good – and the experiment continues …

I’m waiting for my kiln to finish (6+ hours to go), but so far, my ‘speriment’ is working.  I doubt she’ll fuse all the way to what I’ve envisionded, but … maybe – because she’s fired face-down with Wissmach Luminescent … We’ll see. … Read More

Staying warm and slowly producing …

Not much to report on this week in the studio, but I am moving a few pieces along … Custom request dichroic badge reels are a tad trickier to create without running water.  Fortunately, I’m married to a handy guy who keeps lots… Read More

(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… Read More

And it hurt …

After four + decades, I managed to come across something I really wish I hadn’t – Stinging Nettle.  Dang!  I touched it for all of 2 seconds, while pulling weeds, and HOURS later my hand/arm is still bugging me.  After some research,… Read More

Another Deadline Met …

And now, we can close the books on Christmas 2012.  It was touch and go there for a bit, as DH and I were struggling to get to the bottom of the punch list, while enlisting the aid of our ALL-TOO-EAGER teenage… Read More

AADD …

Adult ADD.  Is it an actual diagnosis? … Can you DEVELOP it? … Or CATCH it (like a virus)???  I think I may have it … The ideas are spinning so quickly (in my head), it’s hard to stay focused.  So, then I… Read More
