Wickedly Fashionable

I always knew I was but now everyone knows!
My “Trapped in Pink” pendant has been featured on the website “Wickedly Chic”
( ) in the “Daily Ditties” and I’m so excited!
Besides my beautiful pendant there are scads of other fabulous things. Everything is from Indie businesses.
Gorgeous site, please check it out!

Today the high will be 19 degrees. Nice…At least it’s sunny.
I’m making chili. Johnna is going to love it, she LOVES beans. John forgot to buy the cornbread. He’s banned from writing the grocery list. Luckily Panera is on his way home. YUM!

I have a ton to do as usual. More later!

At left is the result of what happens if you let your two year old “hold it” and then you leave the vicinity for 4 minutes. The black leather sofa was white. Johnna just sat and observed happily. We will no longer be letting him hold the baby powder. *sigh*

Do you have any?
Any you want to share?
I have a couple. ;)
I’m not ready to share yet though.
I’ll let you know when.

I’m working very hard here. Have one million and one things to do. It feels good to be busy though. It feels even better that I’m working towards a better future for my children as well as John and myself. Ambition and willpower can accomplish anything!

I’m finishing some custom pieces today. Just one more firing and they will be done.
I need to redo a couple of pieces also. I HATE when you fire a piece of glass and it turns out a different color! Talk about throwing a wrench in the machinery! Everything comes to a standstill. Grrrr….

So much to do! Kids are getting restless. More later.

I made the front page!

Well the Etsy front page anyways! Thanks to another wonderful glass artist Pamela Angus. ( It was her treasury that made the front page!
So exciting!
Then another Etsian was on the Martha Stewart show while my pendant was on the front page so I got a LOT of exposure! Thank you 1girl1boy ( and congrats on being on Martha! I love Martha!
I have had many requests to make more nightlights so I ordered some glass yesterday to make some new ones. I have many ideas in mind. The shipment is supposed to arrive tomorrow. I LOVE getting new glass! Stay tuned for those!
I’m showing some of my things at a private “Girls Night Out” party tomorrow night at a new restaurant. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year!!!

Ya, ya, ya… I know I’m a little late.
What can I say?
I’ve been fighting with my new Camera. I think her and I are actually becoming friendlier today.
I listed two new things so at least I’m trying to be productive.

We had a wonderful New Years! Ate oysters Rockefeller, artichoke and spinach dip, fruit dip and fresh fruit, creamy dill cucumber toasties and the most decadent black forest cake! YUM!
New Years day (yesterday) we rang in the new year with plenty of pierogies and kielbasa and sauerkraut.
Now I need to stop eating so I can LOSE weight! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Why is it my life revolves around food?! I mean that’s not a bad thing unless it prevents you from wearing your favorite jeans!

Okay I gotta go throw some laundry in. That’s another thing my life revolves around…
At least everyone has clean underwear!

*Picture is of Jake holding up a new toy helicopter so I can learn the automatic focus feature on my camera. He’s such a great help!
