WIP Cross earrings


I kept busy this weekend.  Bit by bit at the bench.  Measure, cut, smooth, hole punch, stamp, rivet, make earwires.  I will still add dangles and play a bit more.  It does feel satisfying to create!

August 17th!!! What!!!  This summer is flying past.  Kids are starting school.  The Pleasanton, CA Scottish Games are ramping up.  My DH volunteers a whole week to set up and take down.  A big family deal every year.  In 1996, when we were dating, he took me to my first one.  The kilts, clothes, music, vendor booths are a fun tradition.  Labor Day weekend.  Come by, OK?

I am still alive!
Just inundated with grands~~What a blessing to enjoy our little ones.  Here we are at a wedding for one of the girls.  See how dashing my hubby looks?  Kilts, gotta love 'em.

We are so busy with family, work and life....I must try to stop by here and post more often.  Where can I purchase more energy?  lol~

Bless you all, my friends.

Playdate with Catherine!

Last Wednesday, I had the funnest best day!  I got to spend the day with Catherine Witherell at her beeeeaaaautiful studio.  I forgot to take any pictures because I was having too much fun looking at all of her treasures, her projects, books, tools, amazingly organized areas, her dogs AND her "rock and roll bathroom"!  ( very cool)

It was kinda like soul vitamins for the artist in me....SO FUN!  

Catherine is kind, smart and generous.  She made an amazing lunch of yummy lentil stew, some deelish carrots basted with honey & herbs & balsamic vinegar and blueberries and raspberries.  Sooooo good!

Her dogs are sweet.  I think that Cookie and I are pretty good friends now.  


I made her a present, and she said she'd treasure them always.  I told you she's kind!


Thank you, Catherine.  It was the best day.

The Winner!





The winner of the "Gratitude" bracelet is Pebbles Wireman!  Fair and square~~I wrote down all the names on my pads.  Snipped them apart, put them into my 1970's Corningware bowl.  Then I stirred them around, closed my eyes and drew.  

Thank you thank you thank you all for playing!  How fun to hear such lovely comments here and on FaceBook.  You've blessed me so much~~Wish I had bracelets for you all!

Gratitude Giveaway


Feeling so grateful~~~

Giving this Gratitude bracelet away!!
It'll fit wrist sizes from 8 inches down to little.  It fastens in the front with the two hooks and you can adjust the length and either let the ends dangle or cut 'em off with wire cutters. 

To enter the drawing, just comment on this blog, or if you are one of my Facebook friends, comment on the giveaway post there.

I will draw the winning name Friday, December 27th at 7:00 PM my time ( Pacific Standard Time).  I'm going to do it the old-fashioned way and write each person's name on a piece of paper, load them into a hat and draw.  Everyone gets an equal chance.  4-H girl's honor! (hehe)
I will announce the winner then, and will request their shipping info.

I hope you enter even though you are super busy right now. I know it will be fun for ME to hear comments from friends and imagine who will win it.

Bless you all~~Love to you all.
