Life & Little Things...

Every time I sit down to blog another month has passed and we seem to be rolling through November at a pretty good pace... It's a little unnerving...

I've got a pretty good rhythm going at the torch. Between filling orders there's play time...

I'm really loving the way these earring pairs turned out...



and working on larger button style focals...




Working with glass makes me feel like Bob Ross sometimes...there's always that moment when you can't quite tell if you've screwed up but work it some more and it all starts to make sense...





Working with copper still, not sure I'll ever tire of it...Endless possibilities just like with glass...



and more ideas that flow...more works in progress...




more flowers to show my rebellion against Winter...




Freeform organic glass headpins for dangles, lots and lots of dangles :)




Top of my stack: Currently can't put this down...



Head start on some easy homemade bath goodies for holiday gifts (and self pampering!)




Winter is not kind to us here in Michigan but one of my favorite things about this time of year is cozy warm wearables and boots...lot's and lot's of boots ;)

School is back in session...


Back to school happened so now I'm trying to get my life back to schedule. I have to admit, I was not ready for Summer to be over. Even though my house looks like a bomb exploded I quite enjoyed the weeks of lazy exploring and lounging with little to no schedule to follow. Also, I wasn't looking forward to hearing the alarm clock and having to pry my eyes open at 6:30 am... I'll never understand morning people.

My solution to this morning situation has been to treat myself to some new cross trainers and work out gear. I DO NOT work out. I don't even like to walk fast...the work out gear is to simply allow me to roll out of bed and pretty much still feel like I'm in my PJ's BUT still look somewhat decent for school drop off. Anyone who sees me will just think I'm heading to the gym instead of the couch to play bubble mania while I drink several cups of coffee and make a mental list of all the things I need to do, should do, might do...maybe later. Procrastination is an art form.








Oh yea, soccer is in full swing again too! At least the soccer peeps seem to feel my pain so games are mostly early afternoon on weekends :)

So now that I'm kinda, sorta getting back into the swing of things. I've got some cool new things I've been working on that I'll be sharing. More blogging will be going on and per usual you can find some daily musings over on my Instagram  to fill in the gaps :)

I didn't pee my pants AND it was one of the most fun things I've ever done. We collected up our brass. I gave them a good soak and now I've been playing around making some fun pieces :) More to come! Follow my progress on Instagram too if you like!
