Ah, the weekend. I realize I am home all day during the week, but even so, most of the serious creating that I do happens on the weekend. Yesterday I put those little bags of silver bead frames to work. I’ve spent the last two weeks envisioning what I’d do, and how I’d put everything […]Read More: Proliferation of Pendants
Friday night again. Another Special Night with Eamonn. He wanted to watch a little Noggin, so I made up a snack mix and brought it downstairs with a few drinks for us to enjoy. About five minutes into it, I realized that if I had to spend the next hour and a half watching episodes […]Read More: Paper, Pixel, and Pillowcase Flowers
I’m realizing that there is a noticeable relationship between the number of creative show-and-tell posts I make and how caught-up I am with orders and shipping. Take this week, in fact. I haven’t made one single little pretty thing to show you. But my mailbox only has about four orders in it that need my […]Read More: Give and take

I’m wearing my favorite skirt, and a new favorite rectangle pendant. I’ve baked my “famous” apple pie. I’ve chipped the dirt off of the children. We’ll […]Read More: The lilies are in bloom
Thank you for all of your great advice yesterday! I definitely intend to file it away for the next time. This particular time, though, I decided that it might be best to just wing it. After all, I’ve been claying long enough that I am certainly comfortable with all of the techniques in my arsenal. […]Read More: Getting my feet wet
I sure hope so! I don’t know about you, but I am eager to welcome the new focus that a change-of-season brings. I’m ready for open windows, Spring cleaning, and leisurely walks around the neighborhood; short sleeves, cropped pants and long evenings at the clay table; skirt-making, cherry blossoms, and chipmunks. I’ve been awfully distracted […]Read More: Spring? Is that you?
